    It seems as though we wont have to worry too much about the Droid X's battery life. Many sources are reporting that it has the stated battery life from Motorola and are very impressed, especially considering it has a 4.3" screen. Seems like Motorola knows what it's doing compared to HTC in that department. I can't wait to see what the battery life is like with the extended battery coming out in August that will add ONLY 1mm of thickness to an already extremely thin phone. :D

    Phone Scoop: "I don't have quite enough data to share at this point. What I can say is that I received the phone with an 80% charge at 2PM. After heavy use, the Droid X still had 50% at 11PM. That's not bad at all, though I hadn't synced email. Today, I left the house at 5AM with a full charge. After 9 hours of email, Twitter, etc., it still has 70% charge."

    No 4g radio which is a huuuuge battery drain, a processor on the 45nm process so it uses less power.

    It better have a better battery life ;)

    Even EVO owners with no 4G service are having major battery problems. It is a big issue on the Incredible and on the EVO. Definitely, not a minor problem. This is an area where Motorola really trumps HTC.

    I like how it locked up. Saw something similar happen on another video. Hopefully that isn't final software release their on! Haha

    lol I hope not either, but that can be easily fixed with a firmware update. Good thing it's not a hardware problem. It happens sometimes on my Incredible also. I don't understand why... but it'll lag for like 10 seconds and then all of a sudden do everything at once.

    Why does he say the phone has been used for the past 24hrs and its still at 50%. When the phone itself clearly states the last time it was plugged in was 2hrs ago?
    Very slick device either way, kinda puts the poor HTC EVO to shame with the benchmark tests that are being run and posted.

    I wonder that too. I'm assuming that he plugged it in temporarily and unplugged it again. I do that with my Incredible sometimes.

    Now with the benchmarks... the Droid X has far better battery life AND far superior performance? I wonder how long the battery would last if it's performance was downgraded to the EVO level.

    Good news to hear for sure, I thought the Incredible battery life was ok, if this is better than that I will be happy.

    I don't like the fact that when you lay it flat seems like you need to use two hands to use the 4 hard buttons.

    I lay my EVO down all the time and never have to use more than 1 finger to hit any button.

    I do like the battery manager (which should be standard on all android phones).

    Atleast motorola was wise and actually put a decent size battery in there compared to HTC who put that tiny battery in the incredible

    That and the fact that is processor is suppose to be better on the battery. I thought the Incredible's battery life was okay and if this is better I am stoked.

    Yeah i mean the incredible battery wasn't great but supposedly the x is supposed to be better on battery which is always a welcome addition to a phone not having to worry about always needing to carry a charger with you.

    I find it hilarious that he says it lasted like all day and overnight and still has half battery left, but when you look at the battery usage screen, toward the beginning of the video, it says its only been unplugged for 2ish hours... HES A LIAR!

    Well we shall see when it finally comes. Maybe the battery life he mentioned was before he plugged it back up? Who knows.

    Exactly. BGR wouldn't make a comment like that if they did not mean it, especially with the video showing differently.

    Speak for yourself, I get 24+hours of battery easy. Thats with about 6+ hours of heavy use awake time and the rest sleep time. Its not a battery hog unless you want it to be and run 4g,3g, wifi, gps and bluetooth with everything syncing all the time. I only run things when i need them and sync the things i want. I bet a smart user could push out 30+hrs on the X easy.

    I'm just speaking for all of those people in the EVO forum complaining about battery life. That's all. If it really wasn't an issue, as it was also with the HTC Incredible, then I wouldn't even mention it.

    Many people don't want to micromanage things like that all day.
