And we NEVER get alive more than 24 hours since we got it last week. The battery is always down. Very crappy battery life.
WiFi enabled takes a hughe amount off the battery life time.
As said mine keeps battery for 5 days before new recharge, but I'm not a heavy smartphone user. I only activate the other stuff when needed and then disable it.
I used Android 2.3.3 (gingerbread) which should be a bit more battery friendly... at least thats what i'm told.
