    I got my phone last night, played with it till 330AM, charged it for 5 hours. I went to work and played on it all day, and it isn't even HALF WAY.

    Holy toledo Batman. This thing just slaps the Incredibles battery in the face, and pretty much every other phone I've ever had.

    Anyone else feel this way too?

    There's already a couple battery threads in here on the first page, but anyway, you must be one of the lucky ones. Go read the longer thread and see how many people including myself are having terrible battery life...

    Yup, I came from a DI, and I'm shocked at this battery life! The new TI processor over the qualcom processor is full of win on the DX :D:D

    edit: I'll add that my shockedness is a good thing, battery life is simply incredible on the DX!

    I am so excited about this... I don't even know how much better it could be with the extended battery.

    I concur! My incredible barely lasted a day! I am using this way more during the initial "new toy" period, and it is still lasting 3 times longer than my incredible that had an extended battery!

    If anyone says different they are stupid. Need to give the phone and battery time to adjust and calibrate.

    Yep, my battery is amazing! Coming from an Eris...wow this thing is awesome! I could have ran my Eris dead twice during the day if I used it the same amount I am using this phone...and by the time I go to sleep (usually around 1:30 AM or 2) it is only at like 35 or 40%. Amazing!

    Guess I'm one of the "lucky ones" as well. This thing runs circles around my old Droid. I had an extra battery that I would swap out around 4 or 5:00pm everyday. I actually used it more than normal today (had a yard sale and watched a ton of TV on it heh) I'm still at 60%! My wife has the Droid now and swapped batteries around 2:30 :p.

    My boyfriend has a droid and he has to do the same thing, he had two batterys, a wall charger, and his phone is on the charger all day I swear. This thing just keeps going!

    My Incredible had the WORST battery life though. My Storm and Storm 2 had better battery life maybe by 10%.

    Eris here too, but I could go from 5am to midnight and have 20% left. But that was sparse use. A few calls, few browsing sessions, no updating widgets. My 1st charge on the Droid X was 12 hours! Very impressed, especially since I can't keep my hands off it today.

    My battery life has been horrid so far. Did you do full charge discharge cycles?

    Lol. They are very taboo... I was stating that the Storm and Storm 2 had minial pro battery life to the Incredible.

    The X makes the Incredible's battery look like garbagio lol. :)

    Took out of the box, played with it from 11PM to 330AM, charged it till 830AM, went off for my day. Hasn't hit a charger since.

    Mine has been great. I only did one cycle the first day and have been 12 hrs at a time with heavy usage before a charge. Try depleting the battery completely until the phone shuts off then charge it all the way without turning it on. I hope this helps. If not go to the store and have them give you a new battery to try!

    Ya it's likely that your battery maybe a dud if its -that- bad, I've never seen a phone perform this supremely. It's all under warranty so you can get one!

    Sorry to be off topic too, but I've seen that bug for the past year. Someone else used it. Just had to crush it.

    Mine is at 60% after a full day of playing with it, starting at 10am. I love it.
