MANY people who go to work & school get a ~ 8-12 hours of use out of it esp. with new GB update.
That's a 9-9 day for some. Can't ask for anymore than that.

I agree there are settings that will allow for better battery life and back when I first purchased the phone I was all over these forums trying to learn all the tricks to get better battery life and I did improve some. However most of the tricks were turn off 4g,turn off wifi,turn down brightness,set the apps to not auto sync. All the reasons I purchased the phone in the first place. In my opinion to get good battery life you must cripple the phone in many ways.
