Anyway, I think that I also mentioned an average of 16 hours, so, here's that, along with about 4 hours of use, screen on, 42% battery.

I obviously have no clue what will happen with the new quadcores but expect either brand to deliver in the battery department.

If you notice the icon change, this shot was on the stock rom, the above was Viper4G.

If you go back and check the battery tests, they have a big weakness -

They test all phones at max brightness while streaming video as their endurance test.

A modern HTC at full brightness is far, far brighter than other phones and cranked to max, uses more power.

I'm sure you'd find more reasonable results cranking the other phones to max brightness, get a light meter, and then just turn up the HTC to only that.
