    I was able to squeeze 1 day and 16 hours of out of the phone. Mostly in WiFi mode, some 4G, extremely light web browsing, lots of app installs and configuring. Lots of texting. Camera and gallery use. Power saving mode was enabled as well.
    One thing that helps is that I put my phone into airplane mode at 11pm, and it comes out of airplane mode at 6am. I don't expect calls during those times.

    I also noticed my battery lasted a bit longer WITHOUT using Advanced Task Killer.

    I could get my old 1gen Moto droid to go about 2.5 days. Considering this phone is a lot more powerfull, I'm fairly happy with the longevity of the battery life.

    Once should be fine. I usually do it if I've had a few times of having to charge the phone when the battery wasn't completely drained and didn't have time to charge it full.

    Out of the box, this phone as phenomenal battery life. My wife has been running hers in 4g constantly and playing with it quite a bit over the weekend and she was getting 20+ hrs a day with 2+hrs of screen time on.

    I've been keeping an eye on the vitals and I haven't come across any wakelock issues (except for instant photo uploads) or signal issues. CPU is in deep sleep the majority of the time, so as of now, I'm not seeing any glaring issues with the battery life on this phone.

    What about an emergency? Just not an option for many.

    yesterday i got 22 hours with moderate use and 20% battery left before putting it on charge. A few calls, lots of texting, internet browsing, market downloads, mostly wifi connected. I installed a data on-off switch widget on my phone so if i am not planning on going on the web (unless on wifi) or receiving/ sending picture messages saves a load of battery.

    Screen time only 37 minutes, so I'm not surprised at the long battery life. I'm not sure I'd call 15.5 hours of up time, with just 37 min of screen time "moderate use", though.
