Default 14 hours of light/moderate use and out - not impressed

I just got this phone couple of days ago after dumping the droid 2 global cos of its lousy bttery. Today was first full day of normal use - not really impressed. After 14 hours I am almost out of juice completely. Didn't have any widgets or WiFi/GPS/bluetooth on at all. Brightness is at auto. Stuff I did - checked BBC, played Sudoku for 10-15 mins, browsed a bit and 5-6 emails.
Here's the detailed consumption break:

14h 0 m 3s since unplugged
Display: 68%
(2hr 25m on)
Cell Standby: 13%
(14h: time without Signal 12%)
Voice Calls: 8%
(10 m)
Phone Idle: 5%
(11h 35m)
Android System: 4%
Plugin Sample: 2%

The last two-I don't really understand - but they dont seem to be the offenders.
What peeves me is that based on these numbers - it seems I have a talk time of max 125 mins (I am in New York - so the reception is decent except when in subway)- the phone is rated for something ridiculous like 6hrs +. The total display on time
is little over 3.5 hrs!

Want to know if people are getting similar use out of their battery or somethings is wrong with mine.
