I constantly see threads and blog posts about people crying about the N1's battery life - WHY DOES ANYONE CARE?!?! A spare battery is $24! That's nothing! Be appreciative of the fact that: We can actually swap out our batteries (WTF Apple???) We need to swap them out because of the amount of power this phone has! Because it's so fast and convenient to use, we actually use the phone for far more than just calls and basic apps All the above aside, I actually don't even think batter consumption is all that bad, however, $24 for a stock batter isn't bad at all. I had each of the iPhones within a month of them being released - I had mine unlocked and jailbroken and needed to jump through hoops to make it half the phone this is... I'm never going back! I love this phone.
