    Just used the phone for ~ 9 hours on battery. Listening to Slacker radio for most of it. I started out at 70% and by the time I plugged it back in on my way home from work I was between 5-10%.

    I do have the extended battery though. No way I would make it on just the standard battery.

    EDIT:

    Forgot to mention that I was on 4G the entire time. There was a few times where I was browsing the Web and played a few games.

    Its way too soon to tell right now. Its known that battery life will improve over the next few uses so rights now wont be nearly as accurate of an indication since everyone would be on their first or second charge. I know that I've been draining my battery because i've been using my phone to death an downloading a lot of apps.

    I put in my battery @ 100% full first time charge at 2pm this afternoon. It is now 12:30am and my battery was between 5%-10%

    Needless to say, I havent really put it down beside at dinner. I've been on a mix of 4G and Wi-Fi (mostly Wi-Fi) just playing around with it, I did watch the whole Green Bay Packers vs Saints game on NFL Mobile.

    not too shabby! Considering I have a fully charged battery sitting right next to it, thanks to Costco, lol.

    Mine was at about 30% and I killed that in about 4 hours. It's now been off the charger for about 7 hours with very heavy use including streaming the entire first half of the Packers-Saints game, and I'm back down to 70%. I am in a 3G area. I'll take it.

    I agree with the above two.

    I have been using 3G when I am at home, 4G only when I am out and about.

    I have to drive 80 miles to get to the nearest 4G area, so....

    I swapped out the batteries this morning at 10:30 AM. it's now 5 PM. I've barely used the phone, and it is sitting at 80%.
