Well, I will say it's less than stellar but so is just about every battery life on new smartphones. It's usually after an update or two and a good break-in period that battery life becomes better. Honestly, I say look at Palm Pre Plus owners. They've had a couple of updates that "improve battery life" and to some extent it has but overall it's still worse than what I've experienced on the Incredible. Here's what I'm doing, but it won't work for everyone...especially people who are always on the go. Be mindful, I'm using a Seidio 1750 and have had it for almost a full week. I work in a building that has great wifi coverage. When I get to work I enable wifi and disable my mobile network. There is a catch to this however, wifi will power down after 15 minutes of inactivity UNLESS you change it's power setttings. From the home screen go to: *menu *settings *Wireless & networks *Wi-Fi settings *menu *Advanced *Wi-Fi sleep policy *Select Never Make sure your phone is connected to the Wi-Fi network and viola you're saving a lot of juice by using Wi-Fi over the mobile network. To make my life simpler I leave the toggle switches for wifi, gps, mobile network, and bluetooth on my first homepage underneath my clock widget. This still leaves me a row underneath for 4 icons or a bar-style widget like the Agenda calendar widget. I keep my 4 most commonly accessed apps there. I'm on day two now with this method (using wifi at home and at work) and I'm sitting at 57% battery. My data works the same as if it was on the mobile network, I still get calls and texts. The only difference is that I'm consuming less power. When I leave an area with wifi I just disable it and enable my mobile network. I'm always connected, still get email to push, and don't have to worry about my battery.
