    Is 12% depletion in battery daily considered normal? i'm running stock Froyo 2.2.1.

    usage includes 15 mins of wifi
    2-3 calls

    sounds about right. Considering that many people report lots of battery drain when not using their phone at all, I'd say you've done something right in terms of setting up your phone for good battery life.

    That seems pretty good to me. Most people have to recharge nightly.

    Doesn't sound bad but depends on a lot of factors. 12% of what? Not all batteries have the same capacity.

    What's normal really depends on your particular usage, coverage, etc.

    say phone is at 100% level, after 24 hrs i check out the charge level and find out how much phone have eaten the battery, in my usage i see 12-16 % depletion daily so i yield 4 days of backup, power hogging functions like HSDPA,WIFI,GPS are only used when needed rest they are shut downed brightness is set to 0.

    That's excellent. I have to charge my Evo daily or every 12 hours.

    yeah not impressed either.

    i don't really see the the point in having a smart phone if you're not going to have wifi or mobile network switched on

    Last I checked, there was no rule saying that someone who bought a smartphone had to use their phone in a certain way or amount.

    The OP stated that wifi and mobile data (3G) are shut off when not needed. There are plenty of times during my day where I don't need my phone for data, so what's wrong with turning off those radios to conserve battery? The alternative, especially if I'm in an area of weak 3G reception, is that the battery drains like crazy while the phone is in my pocket on standby. With Android, turning these radios off and on is so simple with toggle widgets.

    Personally, I keep 3G off unless I need to surf or check my email outside of my home or work wifi hotspots. phone calls and SMS don't use 3G or wifi, so I can continue to get/place calls/text. This is just smart battery management.

    I do the same, when I'm home I use my wifi, when I'm out then I use 3G. I can easily get 24 hours out of my battery with moderate usage. I do plug it in when I go to sleep, and I always have enough battery to get me by.
