Hello there! My purchased of this phone was based on its QWERTY keyboard. Beautiful, but Iíve been frustrated with the battery life on my LG Optimus Q since it began losing power (a day and night is my best). Recently I recevied a 5000mah extended battery as my birthday gift from my friend. It is a mpj and just somehow AMAZING! 2d 10h. I now can easily manage the life of my Q with those battery saving tips. I have to add another thing I just recently learned about, JuiceDefender is another great way to keep my phone on forever!
