So i've been reading alot of complaints about battery life but i got to tell ya i find its not bad for a phone of this capability. Last night i let the battery get pretty low. The warning came on to plug in. Charged it overnight and took it off at 4:30am. I used it all day, wi-fi off gps off gmail sync off background data on network connection on. At 3:30 pm still had 25% battery left and i used it moderately all day. made some calls, got some calls, checked e-mail, surfed the web a few times. I don't see any problem with this. thats 11 hours and still had life left. I think thats ok. by the way, i had downloaded task manager and a few other apps and watched the battery die rapidly so i uninstalled them. also didn't find handcent any better than the stock sms so i uninstalled that as well.
