Hey, I've been looking around at different cell phone providers and phones. I really like the VirginMobile plan.

But, umm, some of their phones available have some bad reviews, almost all of them about low battery life. Don't all phones, in general, have low battery life? In that you have to charge it every day or every few?

I'm looking at the LG Optimus Elite or the HTC One V.

If you're going to get a smartphone, expect to charge it every day. Depending on your use case, and the phone, you may be able to get a couple of days, but don't expect dumbphone battery life. Out of those two phones, I'd go for the HTC One V, comes out of the box with Android 4.0, faster CPU, bigger screen, etc.

Yeah, that's what I thought. It's just phones in general, not that "This phone battery sucks". All phones do...
