Hi Thahim,
My battery lasts at least one full day of average use. But I did have problems when I first got my streak, because it still had Android 1.6. That used to really drain the battery even when I wasn't using it.

You might want to adjust your display settings. I've got my screen timeout at 15 seconds and only change it when I want to view pictures. I turn both Wifi and 3G data off when I don't need it.

Mine is for a good day, maybe 2 if I am not doing much, nothing like my Blackberry but then the screen is probably 5 times larger. On 1.6 it was only good for about half a day.

I am not running anything special, my screen timeout is about 1 minute, I am on wifi 99% of the time.

I have a standard battery, just got a new Streak a few weeks ago and it is better than the original.

Over 4th of July weekend, I went about 80 hours on light usage and then under normal use with about 6 hours of playing radio over the net (WunderRadio) and emails, etc. I still got over 24 hours.

Mine doesn't use much battery unless I am out of network and it seems to contantly search for 3G or Wifi signal and burn the battery. I have an app that I can easily toggle off on or the other. If I manage my connection, I have no issues.

Battery of Dell Streak 5 is really awful. Batt only lasts 24 hours with minimum usage -- less than 30 mins of web browsing, 10 mins game, less than 20 SMS, less than 2 mins of call. I don't really use it if I'm working. Could it be because of the calendar? That's the only time I have to unlock the screen if a meeting pops. I have done all the tips for Dell Mini but I didn't notice much difference. Much the same with 2.2 and 2.3 OS.

My Samsung phone lasts nearly 2 days with nearly the same apps.
