    I am tired of hearing all you ex BB users complaining about the battery. I wish you would get off this forum. :mad:

    Then don't read their threads.

    This is a forum for enthusiasts. Just because they like the battery life of a different phone. doesn't mean a thing....

    Why waste time complaining that the battery life is not like a blackberry. That's like trading in Caddy CTS for a Lade and complain the SUV that does more don't get the same gas mileage and you don't understand why.

    News flash!!!

    The Hero is not a blackberry!!!

    I kinda agree with op. And I am a former bb user. It does get old, but I just ignore questions like that :)

    I used to have a BB also and I had to charge that everynight also. My BB might have lasted a couple more hours, but I'll make that sacrifice for the overall awesomeness of this phone.

    My BB Curve's battery would last 3 or 4 days without charging. The Hero goes one day.

    Do you know why the BB lasted that long? Because I didn't use it for anything but phone calls and reading email. The Hero gets a real workout in comparison -- browsing, apps, games, etc, etc.

    Battery life on my Pearl could go a day or two without needing to be recharged, but considering what the hero is and what it can potentially become, I'm perfectly fine with charging it everynight.

    I personally don't see the need for a phone to last more than a day. Mine will last from 8am till about 8 or 9pm with heavy usage.

    Really? A phone should last for several days, IMO. I'm not bitchin' about the life, but.... From HTC's site:

    Rechargeable battery

    Sounds plausible - however battery drain and reserve capacity are rarely linear with respect to time - unless you're manufacturing for NASA. :rolleyes:
