    Sorry if this has been asked before but I didn't see this exact question asked. I was wondering what most peoples awake time (in minutes) is for a day of use and how that effects there battery time. It's probably silly of me but I don't like seeing my battery being run down a lot even though I charge every day.

    I get about two hours of awake time in about 14-16 hours of it being on.

    It's been on (but airplane on) since 2am, turned on at 7am, now its 5pm and its at 5:30pm. The GPS is mostly off...no wifi connection, only EVDO. I noticed that when I woke up at 7:30 that the phone was at 97% (after turning its airplane off at 7am). The previous night, with the airplane mode always on, the battery was at 100% in the morning 8 hours later. So, it seems that with the phone sleeping but with gmails coming in and phone/data connection, the battery loses 1% per 10 minutes.

    Is the battery monitor accurate? Over the weekend the phone lasted from 8am on saturday to 11pm, then airplane mode until 8am on sunday (50% left at this point) and then finally died at Sunday around midnight. it seemed like the last 10% lasted forever.

    Sorry for all the info, I'm just curious what other peoples experiences have been?

    Up time is 256 hours
    Awake time is 56 hours. Which is 21% according to my phone.

    I tend to use web and email on evdo heavy at work. My battery lasts me from 620 am when I unplug it till 930 pm when I plug it in around 13% charge left.

    I'm usually at 20-35% over the course of a day. My battery lasts between 22 and 30 hours on a charge depending on how heavy my usage has been.

    Right now im at 11% with 1 hour of awake time. I just got it yesterday and fully charged it and still had a full battery over night.

    Thanks guys! It seems that, in airplane mode, the phone stays at 100% overnight. It went down to 97% after 45 minutes of checking emails and having the radio on in the background. Then down to 93% by 2 hours into the day of the same. Now 3 hours into the radio being on (and after a little gps, some IMing and a phonecall) I am down to 90%. So far so good. The battery indicator definitely seems non-linear. It can go from 100% down to 95% very fast but then slow from 95% to 90% despite much more usage. Also, once it hits 50%, it seems to rundown further quite slowly.

    Thanks again!

    Well, its now 5 hours after radio on and I'm only down to 83% ! Very happy with that. Downloaded a couple of apps. Had GPS on for 3 hours. Only real change I made since yesterday was uninstalling ATK so maybe that uses a fair amount of battery?

    Damn, I love this phone :D
