I have used the DX since it arrived. I am a techie and wouldn't consider myself any more picky than any other techie, but is the general consensus *really* that battery life on the DX is good, or very good, or great?! This is most definitely not my own reality. I can't go a full 24-hr day without putting it back on charge. I leave the screen as dim as feasible, which is mostly at user=25% or Minimum. I have 6 email addy's polling every 30 minutes and I have data push disabled (neither of which is ideal but a sacrifice to gain add'l battery life). I have Battery Manager set to Battery Saver Mode. I also leave Bluetooth disabled always and only activate GPS if using the navigation and/or G-Maps. I am running only 2 screens with 4 widgets total. I know most devices these days drain power in a somewhat similar fashion but my iPhone 3G was not this bad. I find it quite inconvenient and a serious hassle to have a charger available everywhere: at work, in both vehicles, and at home b/c invariably, I will likely have to use two or more of those cables at least once each day. And this is without playing a single movie, audio file, or streaming anything. I don't particularly talk an awful lot either, but calls tend to be the most battery-consuming. The breakdown on this particular day happened to fall like this: Voice calls: 56% Cell standby: 25% Display: 13% Phone idle: 8% *Note: those actuaries in the audience were quick to realize this is actually 102%... go figure. So, any comments, suggestions on how I can improve this? I am considering giving the wife the DX and getting the Fascinate but I fear this will not improve. This can't be as good as it gets, can it?
