I don't about everybody else, but the battery life of the HTC desire is really not acceptable. I upgraded from an HTC Touch HD and this was'nt so good for battery life - but at least I could get a day out of it. With the Desire Im lucky if I get 6 hours!! And Im using it I belive in quite a reasonable way - i.e. normal phone call usage, using the 3G/3G+ for browsing on the internet, occasional usage with GPS and google maps, looking at files and documents on the SD card. I'm having to take my charger if I'm going out. Is this acceptable for a mobile phone, I don't think so. HTC need to sort this out. Im on the UK orange network and I'm going to asking if there is some kind of firmware update that is going to resolve the problem - if not, I'm returning the phone. Sure, its an extremely powerful device, but completely useless if it can't last a day. In my opinion HTC brought this out to early to compete with the iphone.
