My Droid Mini is finally starting to live up to stated battery life claims after owning it for two months. I would have to routinely charge about 3/4 of the way through a day. Now suddenly, I can go a full day from 6am to bedtime at 10:30pm on one charge. I haven't removed any apps so not sure if a battery hogging one has been updated. But I'm pleasantly surprised at the sudden and sustained improved battery life.
