By the way, I have to say that this new phone/battery is much better than the last.

I've used it about 3-4 hours (of fairly constant use), and it's at 7% power now.

So, if I can use it for about 4 hours (of heavy use, mainly just surfing applications), I guess that charge should last me a full day (or close to that).
ICS is Ice Cream Sandwich aka Android 4.0 aka your phones's operating system.

Battery savers can save battery, but in my opinion they cripple the phone too much for them to be useful. For example, when your phone is asleep they can turn off data which will save battery but make it so that you don't get any emails until you wake it up. Turning off things like GPS and Bluetooth and LTE when you don't need them works better imho.
