    Well , I am not in a good 4G area but instead I have a WiFi connection that is quite good and the phone does nicely. I am getting about 20mb down and 4 up no matter where I am in the house and in the same room as the router it is even better.

    Another thing, playing Angry Birds and listening to Rhapsody the temp never has gotten past 32C.

    Right now it has been going for 12 hr 39 minutes and it has about 36% of the battery left.

    yeah, 4G is gonna be the real test for that battery as its the main culprit of battery drain. wifi isnt gonna tax your battery nearly as much.

    good to know that the battery isnt getting hot.

    Oh well, I ended up with about 5% battery left after 16 hours.. The battery typically is staying at 31C with normal surfing and rhapsody and the highest I have seen it is 32C.

    I have the Wifi on most of the times, yet wifi on does not turn off your radios, 4G is still active, battery gets me to the whole day, even though the thickness is a little bit much, I would love to have the update already, there is always an issue with LG, that's why not many people buy their phones, cant wait to see metro release an ICS phone from Samsung with and 8mp shooter, I know mp don't tell you good quality, but if is the same as the sgs2, it will be a great camera, the lg camera isn't so good. Ok I rambled and ranted long enough about LG, anyways battery does last by sacrificing size, no case fits it either so you got to be careful of not dropping it, can't wait to see if the update fixes battery life as well as the phone getting hot , I get around 16 hours without the GPS on of course.

    I should have mine in the next day or so. I typically get about 14-16 hours out of mine (original) with very lite use. That is with 4G on and background data. If I am in an area with little or no 4G service, I will usually toggle off 4G.

    Curious, what are the exact buttons to push to toggle off the 4G and leave WiFi on as I am in an area where 4G is basically non-existent.

    Quick questions I got the Connect and its great and what I get is tops 10 hours with the battery and sometimes I'm out and I need to ask for people to borrow their phone because it runs out. The extended battery seems way to big for me so thinking of getting the 1900mah or 2400mah if thats not to big can someone show me where to get the 1900 and 2400 battery can't seem to find them? :/

    Some people are willing to deal with a bigger phone for better battery life.

    some people think the the gold one cant be trusted. i searched the interwebs and i found a lot of people not trusting in over at xda so i think the 1900mah is better buy you never know till someone tries it

    i just did a little experiment with my stock battery. sort of a "worse case scenerio" run.

    4g, background data, sync, GPS were on. clocked at 756mhz high and 192mhz low.

    streamed a 4 hour video of a speedrun of FF5 the entire time.

    from a full charge i went down to 5% in 2 hours and 20 minutes.

    Just got mine today, my silicone cover is just barely too small for it. :-(

    Will let it charge 12+ hours tonight.

    I very well may buy this myself. Not having to wait a month to get this is intriguing.

    Have you been able to get decent battery life with the 3500mah ?
