Given how much I've been playing around with it the first few days, it's surprisingly good. Going from the MT4G which was damn decent, to the G2x which was the worst I've ever had, back to the MT4G, better than the first one, and onto this it's better than the G2x, and not as good as the MT4G all under similar circumstances.
I was using Pulse and the music app for my whole 1.45 hour commute this morning, and it didn't drop below 75%. When I got to work, I screwed around with it for a good half hour before I got any real work done. From there I was just checking email, 2 Facebook updates, and a few market downloads before lunch. It wasn't till I got back from a conference call at 2:30 that I plugged it in because the battery was at 20%. I had it on the charger for about 30 minutes, that got it back to 70%. After commuting home, again flipping through Pulse and an entire Black Angels album, (Phosphene Dream is the shit BTW) (2) 10 minute phone calls and a handful of text messages, it's barely at 50% now at 9:45pm. The true test will come tomorrow since I have to go to the Met game after work. Can't plug it in after I leave work so if it's not 100% when I leave at 5:00 tomorrow, I won't be home till near midnight and I'll be in subways for up to an hour and a half or so.
