Default Which smartphone is more reliable...

the Huawei Mercury or the Sanyo Kyocera? I'm going through my second battery on the Sanyo phone which has lasted about three months (the battery that is, other problems would be it drops out apps which I have to reinstall and other minor problems). I already know that the Huawei has a 1.4 Ghz processor vs Sanyo's 600 Mhz processor, larger internal phone memory storage and possibly a better screen display. The main question is whether the Mercury also eats up batteries and is it stable compared with the Sanyo phone?

Did you have Wi-Fi on? What were you using for the phone?

You could do a little experiment. Switch off all connections (mobile network, GPS, Bluetooh, etc.), and see if it still kills the battery like this.

Sounds similar to my phone except that my battery doesn't heat up. What do they tell you at the store?

To let you know, apparently I had it on the wrong battery charger (it can make a difference) and I got the phone charged up.
