Pros: You will use your phone much less
Cons: it makes the smartphone pretty useless
If blackberry wanted to disappoint customers, they really hit the mark here. The worst least powerful battery ever.
As it heats up a lot I wonder if in fact the whole range of batteries have a design flaw. They should be recalled and replaced with better batteries, this is a shame.
this battery is.. meh.

The battery sucks BIG TIME! And the phone and charger heat up like hell when charging. Arrggggghhhh so disappointing. RIM PLEASE DO SOMETHING! I was fooled!
What is with these new low capacity batteries

Cons: Drains faster than any other BlackBerry
The new RIM paradigm: Make phones like the iPhone. Make it thin so use smaller batteries, not only that it will run out of juice just as fast. Now we make money like apple.
Anyway, doesnt last you one day on heavy usage, makes matter worst you will break your battery faster if you always find it completely drained. And more often than not, if you on the go a lot you will. And Lion batt will wear off faster if let it drain so much so you cant even get into the OS before you charge it more than 5h!
Nice job RIM, not only will this make us buy a spare battery but also replacements in the near future. Next time if(big if) I buy a BB Ill be watching about the battery capacity, I never had to before because most brands INCREASE theirs not lower it.
