So I was thinking to myself this morning "Will this phone fare better than my old one at playing videos? Will I be sitting in an airport after playing 2 hours of video wishing I'd gotten an extra battery?" I watched about an hour of music videos and had 4.5 hours worth of video playing constantly while working at my desk with headphones and the phone propped up on my keyboard(had Tin Man). At the end of that 4.5 hour miniseries I have 45% battery left(5.5 hours total of H.264 video). Not bad considering I still had wireless on and it has been off the charger for over 8 hours now.
