    I'm really excited about getting the att version of this phone when it comes out but iwas wondering what the battery life has been like on this phone, I have heard that it hasn't been to great but then again it seems everyone says that with every new phone that comes out. So about how many hours are u guys getting out of yours?? I will not have gps Bluetooth or checking for emails turned on unless I need it so take that into consideration when estimating battery life. Thanks guys

    I have 60% battery left after 1 day 17hrs of light to medium use. I get this s
    ort of time pretty frequently these days.
    If I hammer the usage, the battery shows it accordingly. Its the same whatever electronic/battery powered device you use.:)

    after freezing some bloatware, reducing the backlight screen time, unchecking off auto-time out and switching off auto-sync, i get just over a day without charging and i'm on it quite a bit with wifi whenever i can.

    i heard the new update improves battery life but i've yet to install it

    Had my phone off charge from 6:30am yesterday until around 1am this morning.

    2 hours display on, 50 minutes GPS, 20MB data use (web browsing / apps).

    Phone was still on the lower end of a green battery. I didn't actually check the percentage but I would guess it was around 25% ?

    The battery is worlds better than my old Desire :)

    15 hours with solid use for me (on average). Yesterday I got 16 hours with 18% left before charging.

    With power savings enabled in kh3 and some apps frozen.

    I'm getting *indefinite* hours of battery life. How? Because I just bought it, only a few days ago and since I'm always working near the laptop, almost 100 percent of the time I'm keeping it hooked to the laptop via the USB cable which automatically charges the phone whenever it's connected.

    I know this reply is stupid and doesn't answer your question but I'm bored :p

    if u didnt use the phone at all its possible but... any proof for that? u dont have rooted phone, no bloatware removed, and firmware which is propably older than KH3... so those 3 days would be possible if u didnt use your phone...

    got ya! :rolleyes:

    Mines of charger at 6am, Check email twitter etc then wifi off and data off, 8 hrs music and radio and a bit of tinkering in the evening, it usually goes of about 9pm. So I am a fairly light user but I'm sure if I hammered this I could kill it before lunch time
