E66 battery upgrade

This phone is receiving great reviews with one exception BATTERY LIFE. What are the chances that an E66i may see the light of day with a much better battery on board ? I don't want a QWERTY phone but then I don't want a brick in my pocket. Guess I will have to downgrade to an E51 which is still a great phone but pity all the new bang and whistles of the E66 are lost on a poor battery. Hope someone listening.
Thanks.

Re: E66 battery upgrade

The chances of an E66 with a bigger battery are pretty slim.

The biggest cause of a fast draining battery is a weak 3G signal. If you don't use 3G you should disable it and see a massive increase in battery life.

I live and work in poor 3G signal area's and have to disable it when I don't need it.

Other factors affect battery life too so you should make sure that you disable bluetooth and wi-fi when you don't need them.

Re: E66 battery upgrade

I just fail to understand the logic behind marketing a great phone with all the latest technology only to then recommend everyone to switch nearly everything OFF in order to save battery life. No sense whatsoever. If Nokia can squeeze a 1500 mAh battery in a 10cm thick E71, surely they could hve got something better in the E66.
