Default battery performance

Ok today I was testing how long the battery really works having the screen on test but just about 2.5 hours and battery close to being dead. I hope with the new upgrade I could get at least 13 hours of movie time without a being to be concern about battery dying. I use tho laugh at the bb guys with there charger but could some one say if they could go through a whole day of heavy use even with data connection?

I don't think there is any way to do what you want and have the battery last all day.

I often get 36 hours out of my battery, but that's with fairly light use.

What battery life do you typically get then? There are a few threads that give good advice about extending it.

It usually last a day and charge over night but that is light use now and then with wifi no data connection. The test was done with wifi and Web searching so the screen would remains on some what like watching movies.

I do not use my phone for movies so I can't help much there but if you have the time and inclination, you may find some useful guidance on conserving battery life in general, at the following links.

I think I solved the ICS fast battery drain... simple solution

What pre-installed apps did you disable?
