    I wasnt very happy with my battery life when I first got my phone, so i deleted the task killer, and i was able to go all day no problem. but i wanted to test it again, and running ATK, i have gone up to this time from 7 in the morning, and i am at 60%. thats even better than before.

    I have atk installed and also installed the overclock widget and set my clock speed all the way down when the screen is off, and between 500 and 1ghz when the screen is on.. I unplugged my phone this morning at 8am, right now it is 633pm and I have 72 percent left. I think both these things help with battery life when you are not actually using your phone.

    Today I took several 2-3 minute videos, several texts, emails, no web browsing, 2 phone calls, moved some things around, downloaded some apps, and watched a few minutes of video.. Not TOO labor intensive on the phone, but still 72 percent is pretty good for it being off the charger all day.

    Dylan, you need root. I used the easy one, but still it works fine. Overclockwidget (one word) is in the market.

    So far I am very happy with the battery life, running ATK in aggressive mode, and with moderate usage. I had feared the worst with all the posts about poor battery life. This week will be a good test, but so far so good.
