    Horrible battery life.

    It is now 3pm. My phone is less than 7% charged.

    I unplugged the phone from the outlet this morning at ~7:30

    Between then, It has seen about 5-10 minutes of text use (overall), 5 minutes of app use. Talked for 2 minutes and that is about it.

    It is now 3PM and the phone is ALMOST DEAD! I haven't even used it long! I had 3 tests today so I really couldn't use it long anyway!

    Wifi: Off (Entire time)
    GPS: Off (Entire time)
    Apps: 1 or 2 user opened. Gmail, Google Voice and Voice Dialer all seem to be always running.

    Should I get this puppy switched out?

    Otherwise, I love the phone: It made me switch to the 3G plans, finally. I find it weird that there is not an easy way (stock) to kill programs without downloading an app)

    you may want to look at Juice Defender on the market... It does wonders for battery life... the first week or so with the phone i was having similar battery life.. but not any more. I unplugged mine at around 6:30 am... its now 3pm and im at 60% that is with downloading and configuring a new rom and reverting back.

    Yeah but my Wifi was already off and GPS was off as well.

    It looks like this is all Juice Defender does?

    Nope.. very wrong... it also turns off the data connection and turns it on in intervals to conserve battery life... trust me it works.

    It's funny that this thread got posted today. I've been fighting with battery life from day one as stock and now rooted. I've seen the setcpu thread and tried different settings, tried a few on my own, lately playing with TaskPanel and there's an uncertainty there too. I see people's post about hwo they notice the difference when they make changes, but my daily use is never the same to make an accurate judge.

    Today I decided to track and use the phone as minimally as possible. Looks like I'm on the "7/50 plan". In 7 hours I have 50% left and it's been on standby with the exception of one 2-3 phone call, one post to FB through the app (addictions ), couple minutes of showing an iPhone user how much his phone sucks, check and read one email, and an occasional check on battery status (on/unlock/off). That's it! That has to be less than average use in 7 hours.

    I will try out juicing delimiter and see if that helps since I've seen good feedback here about it.

    Just pull the battery when you're not using it. I'd be furious.

    my battery lasts all day no issue.. turn off the friend stuff.. social crap.. update weather every 6hrs.. pop email once an hour.. no lwp..

    no flickr.. etc..

    condition the battery, everyone says you dont need to but do it anyway.. i think it helps..

    i got home from work yesterday and had 70% battery left (8hr day).. thats after a crapload of txting.. couple calls and reading emails.. i leave GPS on too.. anything that has to use 3g is gonna drain your battery..
