    Hi Thahim,
    My battery lasts at least one full day of average use. But I did have problems when I first got my streak, because it still had Android 1.6. That used to really drain the battery even when I wasn't using it.

    You might want to adjust your display settings. I've got my screen timeout at 15 seconds and only change it when I want to view pictures. I turn both Wifi and 3G data off when I don't need it.

    Mine is for a good day, maybe 2 if I am not doing much, nothing like my Blackberry but then the screen is probably 5 times larger. On 1.6 it was only good for about half a day.

    I am not running anything special, my screen timeout is about 1 minute, I am on wifi 99% of the time.

    I keep on using it, always connected to wifi and keep on surfing internet. It works for about 20 hours like this..

    Do you guys have the 1530 or 1800 mAh battery?

    I have a standard battery, just got a new Streak a few weeks ago and it is better than the original.

    Over 4th of July weekend, I went about 80 hours on light usage and then under normal use with about 6 hours of playing radio over the net (WunderRadio) and emails, etc. I still got over 24 hours.

    I have the 1530 mAh battery and mine lasts a full day with heavy use, lots of surfing, gps, camera, music etc.

    Mine doesn't use much battery unless I am out of network and it seems to contantly search for 3G or Wifi signal and burn the battery. I have an app that I can easily toggle off on or the other. If I manage my connection, I have no issues.

    Battery of Dell Streak 5 is really awful. Batt only lasts 24 hours with minimum usage -- less than 30 mins of web browsing, 10 mins game, less than 20 SMS, less than 2 mins of call. I don't really use it if I'm working. Could it be because of the calendar? That's the only time I have to unlock the screen if a meeting pops. I have done all the tips for Dell Mini but I didn't notice much difference. Much the same with 2.2 and 2.3 OS.

    My Samsung phone lasts nearly 2 days with nearly the same apps.
