Default 1700 mah battery........how long?

Just got those 2 batteries. After full charge, i unplugged my phone at 8AM, and after "everyday" normal use, my phone gone dead exactly at 4:37PM. So, almost 9 hours. All was ON on the phone, gps, 4G, etc......idk if it is good or not, but i think it was a little longer than on stock battery. Having those 2 batteries with me, it is more than enough to "survive" whole day....

THe 4G is what killed your phone. Theres an app called 4g lte on off that lets you turn off the 4G if you dont need it. People seems to see an improvement. I have it installed and will try it out when I head to Disney World tomorrow. See how battery life is. Mostly I might turn my data off as I wont need it all the time.

I've been using LTE onoff app ever since it was released and it's truly awesome. I'm on stock battery with CDMA Auto on, and it lasts the whole day. I unplug the phone off the charger at 7am and will literally last me till 9pm'ish if not later with moderate use. Pretty awesome I have to say.

FYI - I don't. My 4G is always ON, since i am in "center" of its coverage. I just said; i am gonna be on 3G only today, to see how this (if) effects battery life.

OK, it is dead now, i meant it turned off at 9:55. So, 13h55 minutes. On "normal-every day use". Not bad. I had like maybe 10-15 incoming calls, made out about the same. Was on the phone for 3-5 minutes average. Sent few sms, played a stupid game on lunch break, GPS to new client and back (45 minutes one way), and....IDK. Looks like (for me) 1700 battery is good enough.
