    The more you use it the more the battery dies...so if you were using it, loading apps and setting it up and what not its going to use the battery.

    You will have to charge it each night..

    Point of reference. LiIon batteries do not like to be discharged completely on a regular basis. That will shorten the useable life of the battery so when you are near a power source you should keep it topped off.

    The biga beautiful screen uses a bunch of power so take it off automatic and turn down the brightness as much as you can and that wil help a lot. Watch the apps running in the background too. Weather apps should be updatong less than hourly and polling for email can be increased instead of instantaneous if you don't need the quick notifications.

    The vibrate mode also consumes lots of juice to run the motor.

    You can improve battery life if you do some research and experimentation.

    Enjoy.....

    Since the OP never returned to provide details of exactly what was being done and exactly what the timing of all this was it is premature to assume there is anything wrong.

    We really don't know how the device and battery were behaving. The description of when it was charged, how much it was charged and when it was running out were very, very vague.
