    Motorola Photon Battery indication

    I just got the Photon on Sunday. When you go to check the battery status it is always in a 10%, like 90%, 80%, 70%, 60%, 50%, 40%, 30%, 20%, then when it gets low it goes by 5% like 15%, 10%, 5%. It never goes down by a smaller % like my HTC Hero that I traded in. I know this really shouldnt be a problem, but if it is, I would like to get it fixed sooner rather than later.

    Motorola and Verizon seem to like the phones doing that. I have no idea why -- even the Motorola Backflip (a subpar phone by most standards) has 1% indicators.

    It's not a problem, just kind of annoying to see how fast it drops from 100% to 90%.

    battery level app

    for what it's worth, the App : "Gauge Battery Widget" is a pretty dope (free) on-screen battery level display widget.
    It still rocks percentages in 10's but at least you don't have to dig around your settings/revert to lock screen to find an percentage readout.

    Just got my new Photon from Amazon Wireless, but the battery doesn't want to charge after several hours connected and the phone won't even start up. Plugging in the USB charge cable causes a small LED just above and to the right of the MOTO logo to come on white and then go green, but I can't find any documentation of what it means. Anybody have the color codes?

    Green would indicate charging, I believe.

    Dumb question -- is the SIM inserted? Is there something covering the battery contacts?
