Your battery life?

    How many hours are you getting out of your battery and what are you doing? Today I got about six straight hours out of it. I streamed music for about an hour, played music off the internal storage for about an hour, browsed the web in chrome (it's chrome however you look at it :p ), downloaded and installed apps off the market, watched videos off youtube and elsewhere (flash) and I had about five widgets that pull data off the net. Oh and I also spent some time trying to get VLC Stream and Convert working (finally did, but it reminded me why I hate VLC so much).

    This is with brightness set on full throughout the whole time, haptic/tactile/vibrate feedback turned off, and GPS turned on (. No clue what my Gmail settings are (can't find them anymore), but I have three accounts synced.

    I can't say I'm disappointed with it, and I think it can last me a day with some careful settings, but other than that slashgear review that made the battery seem like a beast, it seems most reviews agree that the battery life is shorter than the iPad 2, Xoom, and Transformer.

    This was also the first time I let the battery die, so hopefully it'll get a bit longer after calibration.

    What are you getting out of it?

    Mines so far has lasted over a little of 8hrs with screen set at half way, gps/wifi on. Streaming video from Amazon watch 3 movies, watching youtube videos for 1.5 hrs, surf the net going to various forums and one movie off usb flash drive. I don't mind the battery life since I just need it to get me through a work day when I have nothing else to do.

    Pretty good battery life here... been on web for a few hours and not even at 50% yet

    Going on 6 hours straight use and still have about 20% left on the initial out of the box charge. This thing is a blast!
