We've all heard the horror stories (I just bought my Desire and the battery lasts for about 4 hours!!) and the fanboy wankery (I get at least 3 days of heavy use!!) so today I unplugged my Desire at about 6am and set off for work. It's 7pmish now and here's some stuff you may like to look at. I have 3G disabled, Sync on manual, no "live" widgets (just wifi and bluetooth) live wallpaper (nexus) and screen brightness on auto. Here's the battery status (rounded up from 25% according to Battery Info in the Testing app) The breakdown of usage: My phone was idle for 9 hours and 45 mins: The Display was on for a mere 2hours and 46 mins With only 1.5 hours of wi-fi: And 30 mins of calls: So, that'll be less than 3 hours of usage. Any thoughts?
