    How bad is the battery life?

    Honestly, I've waited since September waiting on the Thunderbolt (ever since Nov. 23 release date was rumored..) and now that it's coming in march I can't take it anymore with my dumbphone. I am seriously looking at this device (dINC) but was wondering how bad is the battery life? All the reviews were 5 stars in every category except battery life was a 1-2 star.

    If I were to play games for 3 hours, would it last?

    Battery Life

    It's decent. I didn't even check the reviews, I just went ahead and bought the Droid Incredible, and on the first day I was just like WTF IS THIS with the battery life. But then after a few weeks I got some battery saving apps and it works a lot better now. Currently...

    I can run like 5 hours of sustained heavy use. This includes live wallpaper, adw launcher, multiple applications, constant button pressing...(you get the point) with my droid incredible. I do recommend a bigger battery however, simply because the stock battery isn't that good. I'm using the stock one, but usually i won't use it for like 4 hours straight so it's fine for me.

    A droid incredible should be able to last you a day. It lasts for me from 6 AM to 9 PM no problems, with roughly 4 hrs. of usage in between.

    BTW: If you do get the Droid Incredible I recommend getting setcpu and underclocking the system. The Droid Incredible just performs at a much higher rate than it needs to...by underclocking the phone my battery ended up lasting for a much longer time. Just check the other threads, there's a bunch of tricks for extending the battery life. If you purchase a Seidio 3500 battery then you'll never have any problems with battery. Hope I helped, sorry I rambled, !
