    Question Charging

    Just bought the new phone along with the service. I am very disappointed with the charging time. On average if the battery has about 30% power left it takes about 2 hrs to charge. I would like to know if this is normal for this phone.

    I own another phone (HTC G-2) from T-Mobile and that phone takes about 15-20 min. to do the same task. I wonder if there could be something wrong with the phone or charger. I bought extra battery but it takes about the same time for new battery to charge.

    Any ideas ???

    Definitely going to take longer than half an hour. I'll try monitoring the charging on this Metro Indulge.

    I can't speak specifically for this phone but generally the more powerful the phone and greater the mAh the battery is, the longer it will take to charge. My Droid 1, for example, would take roughly an hour and a half to charge from 0% to 100% compared to my RAZR which only took about 45 mins to an hour max to charge. The charge time also depends on if the phone is ON or OFF while charging, if the screen is timed out while charging, if any apps are running while charging, etc. There are MANY factors behind it.

    I don't know any Android phone that can go from 30% to 100% in 15-20 min. I'd like to see a video of this. Youtube allows 15 min videos on newer accounts. Let's watch the whole charging process.

    Looks the the Indulge's battery is 200 mah larger in capacity. Just based off of Google searches.
