    The evidence is anecdotal at best, but today is Day 3, I charged my Incredible (stock battery) from practically dead (~10%) for four hours this morning (8AM - 12PM), and it's been running since. Current stats (11PM):

    11h 4m 3s since unplugged

    Overall Current Battery Level (Green Bars) - 40%


    Android System - 23%
    Cell Standby - 24%
    Phone Idle - 19%
    Bluetooth - 10%
    Display - 8%
    Wi-Fi - 7%
    Voice Calls - 4%
    Camera - 3%
    Internet - 2%

    I have noticed my battery has improved a lot since 4/29 as well. I think we overreacted a bit and jumped the gun. The battery life still isn't great, but it's better than 4/29 and much more acceptable.

    :D On day 4, stock "HTC-DI-1300" from full charge to right now 11h 18m 12s and have 13% to go. So fare today did about 10-calls, 2-hour internet, 1-hour game play, 12 texts, use shopsavvy about 15 at the store, Wi-Fi is always on but not looking for locations, Bluetooth off, GPS off. Only thing I do have on my phone to help is an auto appz killer for when my phone sleeps. When I unlock it every thing works. :D

    As I found with mine, bluetooth looks to be the biggest drain on the battery besides the OS. I keep it off until I have to use it and kill it once I don't need it for awhile.

    My battery life still sucks but I'm going to give it some time. I'm on my 5th charge cycle since getting the phone.

    I took my phone off the charger at 9am this morning and was out until about 11am. Came home, left my phone by the front door (not plugged into the charger). I noticed around 4pm that I was only down to 89%. Only 11% in 7 hours? Granted, I did very little on the phone in this time period AND since I left wifi on, the phone was on my wifi network from 11am to 4pm instead of the 3G network. Apparently my background services were very kind on the battery.

    Wifi uses less power? I thought it was the other way around? I may be wrong though.

    I killed the facebook sync and used Running Services to kill some apps not in use. Had 14+ hours unplugged and was still at 20% battery with pretty heavy use.

    Yea I agree. Second day only and battery lasted much longer than the first day. An auto app killer however seems to help immensely. I'm using task panel and like it a lot due to its ease of use and it sits up in the status bar, so I can pull it down and access it easy. BTW, I'm coming from the verizon voyager, which was a total piece of crap, and this phone is amazing. To be honest, the battery isn't even bad given what this phone is. It lasts longer than the voyager! I'm sure htc will release updates that will improve battery life, CPU utilization, etc.

    First off I am posting this from my incredible. Which is at 15 hrs with 50% battery left.

    This is only my third charge. The first was about 6hrs, Tue second was over 25hrs.

    Theory odd this so far is the battery usage screen keeps showing the app NRU where the android OS should be. I have even seen it show the android OS and then switch instantly to the NRU app icon ... I am thinking its just a grafx glitch

    Anyone else have a similarexperiance?

    Nope, wifi uses less power... the problem is your cell radio is still on while wifi is on. So it's a double drain.

    Ah OK, thanks. When I toggle on my wifi, I'm assuming 3G will still be active however not use for push notifications? (thus just have it idle in the background?) I just figured when I have wifi on, 3g is on, so THAT is the double drain, not the opposite.

    My phone has been on for 21 hours now and battery is at 23%. I been using it heavy for last 2 hours. Web surfing, emails, and slacker.

    GPS, Mobile Network, and wifi have been on for about 12 hours.

    I can't complain about my battery. I have been using it way more than on a regular day.

    I used advanced task killer and I set the autokill to aggressive. When the phone goes to sleep or press the power button. it will kill almost all the apps running. It will not kill pandora or slacker which is nice.
