    Ok today I decided to be extrmely conservative with my phone. Here is what I came up.

    Battery Level 46%
    Up Time 14:01
    Awake Time 2:35

    Cell Stand bye 29%
    Phone Idle 28%
    Android 18%
    Voice Calls 7%
    Display 5%
    WiFi 5%
    Dialer 4%
    Maps 4%

    Now I used WiFi whne I was around it, 3g when not, had both off for about 2hours, listened to music for maybe 30minutes, good amount of text , email , sports tap updates, facebook, Craigsnotifer , one navigation use 15minutes maybe, and live wall paper the whole time.

    So I believe that 24hrs isn't completely out of the question with lite use and you could probably use for over 30hrs if 5-7 hrs of sleep with everything idle

    Google spreadsheet with data:
    Incredible Battery

    It's a work in progress.

    Feel free to suggest any improvements or calculations you'd like to see.

    Ya, I can try to post some data once I get a chance to properly run the test. Would it be better if I just went from full charge to dead or is it fine if I go from full charge to half charge? I don't know how accurate the reading is on these batteries. My gas gauge for instance always seems to go faster on the second half.. could just me trying to avoid getting gas though..

    I went and bought an Eris battery on Saturday and I seem to be having much better performance numbers on it... I've been up for 16 hours today and still am over 40% battery life...

    Anywhere below 50 would be fine. Maybe aim for around 20%?

    I'm like you mainly. I had moderate phone use because I was at work but I'm alone in the office most of the time anyway free to respond to texts etc etc.

    Note: I didn't start the trial with the phone off and I think my phone rebooted during the morning while running an app.

    Up Time: 20:23:00
    Awake Time: 08:52:00
    Unplugged: 13:26:07
    Battery: 9%
    Wifi: Off
    GPS: On
    Bluetooth: Off
    Always on Mobile Data: Off
    Sync: 4 - Facebook, Gmail account, Twitter, Weather (Every Hour)

    Android System: 31%
    Cell Standby: 26% (Time without a signal 0%)
    Phone Idle: 20% (Time on 10h 20m)
    Camera: 11%
    Display: 10% (Time On 3h 15m)
    NexusMod Live Wallpaper: 2%

    Screen Brightness: about 20% ( Whatever the middle brightness is when using the power management widget)
    Animations: All Animations
    Screen Timeout: 1 Minute ( I normal lock the phone as soon as im done with it anyway)

    This was pretty much the time I left for work to my security job and a few hours at home responding to texts. I was on the internet for at least an hour and watching youtube for about 20ish minutes. Did texting throughout the day which for me is about a text every 20 minutes or since I was working. Also did a bit of quick responding to texts back and forth because I was on lunch or break. I was using many applications like Market, Appbrain, Barcode Scanner, Craigslist Notification, Scanner Radio, Shazam, No lock.

    Well thats mine. I would also like to note that the last hour I really limited my use because I had to go out and fear it dying. I did respond to texts and check email in this time period though. I'm in my early 20's and connected socially and I'm pretty sure I'm an accurate represenation of the poeple getting bad battery life. My battery have been fully drained at least 5 times now and many mid charges.

    Here is mine for this afternoon/evening.

    Up Time: 10:11
    Awake Time: 4:39
    Unplugged: 10:11
    Battery: 19%
    Wifi: on 71.5%
    GPS: off
    Bluetooth: on 1.4%
    Always on Mobile Data: Off
    Sync: 2 (Backup assistant once a night, Weather every hour)

    Android System: 35%
    Cell Standby: 25%
    Phone Idle: 12%
    Display: 12%
    wifi: 12%
    voice calls 2%
    Dialer 2%

    Screen Brightness: about 20%
    Animations: off
    Screen Timeout: 2 minutes but lock out soon after using

    I was home most of the day with a sick kid so had mobile off and wifi on. Spent about an hour in the car and used Slacker Radio for much of that, but with cached stations and not live feed, which is suppose to be much easier on the battery.


    I will download that program you recommend and keep track that way and then send you report if I can figure out how to do that.

    The usuage in cell standby and phone idle is rediculous. That is the juice I want retained. If the phone had a better standbye mode that used less battery there would be no need for this thread.

    What I've been wondering is that why did not one single reviewer notice the horrendous battery life? They most said they played with the phone for at least an hour so surely they would have noticed the battery dip so quickly.

    I think that's because they've all said it has AVG Battery Life for phones in it's class. Which it does, it has better battery life then my Eris had and about the same as the Moto Droid. Better then the Storm or Storm2 . So I don't know what people want forom a phone like this.

    I think I have a defective battery. On the second day I had the DI, I charged mine, made a couple quick calls, and went to bed with it at 83% around 11:30pm. Beforehand, I had wifi, bluetooth, and gps turned off (mobile network still on) and killed all running tasks. I woke up at 5:45am and it was completely dead. Granted this was only the second cycling of the battery I performed, I would like to think it would be a little better than that. Hoping the 1750mah battery I ordered can deliver better uptime than this.

    Thanks. looks to be in the same range of utilization as last time- 13.58 vs 12.98. Both project battery life around 21/22 hours.

    My storm 2 last 2 days easy with the same usage as I do on this phone but this phone only lasts about 8 hours. I'm literally afraid to make phone calls if I know its going to last more than 1/2 hour.

    Would you mind posting your up time and awake time?

    To get a sensible reading of this do the following :

    Turn your phone off. Allow a few seconds before powering back up.

    Tun the phone on. Allow it to run for 5-10 minutes

    the information I'm looking for is under menu>settings>about phone>battery>batteryuse

    Need uptime and awake time.

    My old storm would last 1-2 days with the same amount of usage I use on my Inc and I'm lucky if I get 6 hours of use on my Inc. I've had I think 6 total battery cycles now out of my DInc

    Data please.

    Posting in this thread " My envy lasted 26 days on the same amount of usage" Does nothing for us...

    We're here to collect data and come to a conclusion on others usage. It's odd that all of the users posting actual data here are getting near the same amount of usage. Meanwhile the ones complaining of crappy battery life have yet to actually follow the plan of recording the data so that we may be able to help them discover whats different in our phones to theirs.

    Not trying to be a dick. All I'm saying is bitching about something does nothing to fix it. But if you participate, and share your data, we may very well be able to track the source of the problem and correct it.

    Not thrilled with this. Could have had weather sync off. I use google voice (including visual voicemail) as well as want quick push email, so left mobile data always on.

    I did use wifi for about 15 minutes, and had gps on for about 3-4 minutes. Brightness is set to auto. I read email (approx 60), sms (15 or so) and replied to a few. I also played video of guy at baseball game getting tazed a few times.

    Profile set for LED and vibrate on all alerts.

    My phone has terrible sound quality on my end of phone calls (muffled). I'm likely to return the phone for replacement, but don't relish figuring out what I can do to backup/restore profiles, installed apps, purchased apps, etc. on replacement. Maybe, I'll get lucky and get a better battery on the new one.
