    Battery usage

    I have read multiple threads about battery life. I am not sure if I have a "bad battery" or if it is just the nature of my use. Let's put it this way...I woke up at 1030, have played with the phone basically for the straight hour with minor web browsing, and just using apps. I am using locale (although it is only supposed to determine location every ten minutes and just for a brief second), and have had wifi turned on the whole time. My screen brightness is always turned all the way off. The battery is already down to 80% in that short period of time....is this normal or should I get to Verizon and push to get a new battery?? Or I am just really using it intensely enough that it drains pretty quickly....what are others experiences???

    it depends, did it just hit 80% or has it been sitting at 80% the whole time? I've seen some people complain about locale eating battery, but i don't know if that's confirmed or not.
    Resistance is futile.

    yeah i mean it just went from 100 and hit 80 in about the hour of heavy use. I've been monitoring locale and its gps use using an app and it seems to be only using a very little amount of gps...it really only turns on every 10 minutes for about 5 seconds to get a location...seems pretty minimal....maybe this is just normal??

    Well with heavy use, JUST hitting 80% is pretty decent. I'm not 100% sure of this but i do believe that it will show 80% even if your at 89%.

    OK with heavy use, the phone is NOT going to last 12 hours. Lets just get that out of the way first. It all depends on WHAT you are doing on the phone. Are you watching movies, surfing the net, listening to music?

    yes you are right about this BUT what I would like to know is when exactly does the 10% drop take place.

    I mentioned this in another thread as well. 10% drop is a huge incremental drop and not a very accurate representation.

    Well in the past hour and a half that it dropped 10% I really haven't used it much. Checked the weather, checked my facebook, etc. but briefly...I am fine with the battery life as long as I know other people have similar experiences. If you use the phone on an average daily basis just doing basic things like light browsing, etc. will your battery last a full day and not have to plug it in until bed?? I don't think mine will...
