Just purchased Thunderbolt... but should I trade it in for an iPhone?

I just purchased the HTC Thunderbolt a few days ago. I really like it so far, except the battery life is pretty bad. I purchased the extended battery but it seems so bulky (I have tiny hands) so I've just been using the regular stock battery. Anyway, I'm wondering if I should trade it in for the iPhone 4 within the next few days while I still can? I'm hesitant to switch because I'd miss the following about Android: LED notifcation, Google Maps Navigation, Voice to Text, perfect integration with all of my Google accounts... If it wasn't for the battery.... Decisions, decisions.

 

Any thoughts?

They do have a dock u can charge the phone as well as standard battery or just the extra battery so u don't need the extended.

If you're having battery issues, turn off the background data option under settings - accounts.

It stops your phone from updating and using 4g data in the background, thus saving a ton of battery life.
