I purchased my LG Optimus Showtime on Saturday May 25 2013 after returning a LG Lucid to Verizon because of changing my mind about their expensive plan. The battery life on this phone is terrible. I have it just turned on 15 minutes, nothing running and trying all the tips outlined before, and I lose 15% of battery life. I have the data. blue tooth, and wi-fo all turned off and it still drains power. I have made one short phone call, less than 5 minutes since fully charging and I am at 82% battery life. Battery usage level on the phone says I have "1h 54m 8s on battery". Hopefully I don't have a long conversation or attempt to send too many texts or check my email.
Also, the phone malfunctions with the hands free link in my new Acura. It sounds like the party I am calling is underwater or gargling, almost demonic sounding. The phone from Verizon had none of these issues. I am very disappointed. Please advise.
