i get almost 3 days use on a single charge .. but i keep tabs on battery hungry apps and nonsense apps running in back ground for no reason turn off everything not in use ect ect ..

That is a tough question to answer.

I don't have a problem with the battery at all.

You can extend battery life by using battery management apps from Google Play.

Things that will cause battery drain are:
Live wallpapers
Bluetooth
WiGi
Youtube
Games

This will be like any number of smartphones. The more you do, the quicker the battery is going to drain.

It is always recommended to charge the phone every night, if possible. There is no need to have the battery drain empty before charging. Doing that actually hurts the battery on this device.

There is no Otterbox for this phone.

You can find many quality hard plastic of soft gel cases on sites like Amazon, Ebay. You could also check your local cell phone retailer.

This Proclaim is the same phone as the Samsung Illusion.

Question

.pdf files ???

Someone please for the life of me tell me how or which (I've tried most all of them) app to use or which phone setting to change so I can at least view .pdf files on my sd card. A .pdf is a very common file. My old Optimist Q had no problems at all. I was told this was an upgrade but if it is not configured to open a simple .pdf...well, that leaves a lot of room to doubt... also, can't even download the simple basic CNN news app on the Proclaim. Says it is "incompatable" but worked just fine on the Optimist Q.... Makes one wonder !!!

Question for you Zzuebe:

1) Have you rooted this device and running it on a custom rom?

If so, that might be why you are getting the error. I have the Proclaim and just installed Adobe Reader without any problems whatsoever.

If you have not rooted the phone and you are not running a custom rom, you may need to reset your phone. Backup what you can beforehand.

Go to Settings, Privacy and then tap Factory data reset. That seems like it might be the only way to restore your phone as something has messed up.

I tried all the free ones on Google play (even Adobe Reader) and no good... always get the same message "an error has occurred"... I don't think the phone can read .pdf's... Friend has the same problem !!! I don't think this is an upgrade to the Optimist Q (really a bit slower at times) but does have better coverage and "Flash Player" ... Oh well !!!
