    I thought it would be cool for people to post their average or best battery life and the time unplugged. Then we can piggyback off of someone's post to see what is causing good or bad battery life since I know this is a big issue in a lot of root forums.

    Mine:
    It's unplugged for about 15 hours a day, ends up at about 75%.

    I did not have that intent at all, surgeon.

    This thread will take off just fine.

    I was merely alluding to my own personal experience (exaggerated for effect, thus the link ;)) from the days when I first got the Eris with its 1300 stock battery.

    Most smart phones forums are peppered with threads complaining about battery life.

    I think I was spoiled by my 8330, though.. even though I thought it was bad, having to recharge every other day.

    This thing called an Eris is left with about 25% to 35% at the end of a full day (5am to 10pm) of on-and-off use.

    5:30 am to 10 pm, with about 25% remaining at the end of the day.
    Because I sit at a computer all day I do very little web browsing on my phone. I'll either play music or podcasts for about an hour, send/receive some text messages, read an ebook for about an hour, and I think I'm one of the few people who actually make phone calls. :)

    Well, the "on-and-off" use is the thing.. I'll bet most smart phone users become aware of battery draining very quickly, and I'll hazard to say many pare down their use of the browser (at least) because of that.

    I know I do.

    The phone is a different thing, though; I make all my calls from this thing now.

    Ah yes, the 8330; had one, great little phone. Nothing beats a Blackberry for email. But, as with most Blackberry phones, NO fun at all. ;)

    I'm going to grab a 9650 next month, as my "other" phone.

    I'm also almost talked into getting the X.

    We'll see we'll see.
