    I think my incredible is special, like short bus special...

    This thing is almost on its 2nd full charge today from 8am this morning... I unplugged it the last time from my computer at 5:15pm EST before I left the office... For some reason it believes that the last time it was plugged in was 38minutes ago???? Could this be why the battery doesn't last more than about 5 hours???? Faulty phone maybe??? Some people claim they get like 10 hours out of this battery.... My Droid on the right came off the charger at the same time as the incredible did this morning.. Yet it is still going strong... I actually made 2 calls on the droid none on the incredible...

    The only extra steps I took on the incredible today, hardly scientific but worth mentioning..

    Both Cell Standby's are similar, so is the Phone Idle. What in the world is going on with your Incredible? I'm thinking its the Sense UI. Android System and Display is the biggest difference between the 2.

    Battery has a break in period?

    That doesn't justify the battery life... Look at how much display the droid is sucking... It's been off the charger since 8am this morning and going strong....

    Sensui in terms of connectivity has facebook, flickr, twitter syncing... I turned all 3 off as I don't use them.. So in Idle these 2 are pretty much doing the exact same network functions.. The display on the incredible uses way less battery than the Droid.... The thing that makes me think that mine might be special is the time from unplugged... Some people have stated they get 8-10 hours... I'm barely getting 5...

    My DI doesn't last more then half a day. The battery drains way too fast.
    When all is said and done, more is said then done.

    I'm getting great battery life out of mine. It actually seems better than my rooted and overclocked Droid.

    Love the phone but!

    Love the phone but! Battery life is good if I just use it as a phone or to check emails (without viewing attachments) but as soon as I use it to watch you tube or any thing else the battery life goes way down. I took a fully charged phone and used it for two hours for email, videos and phone and the battery went from 100% to about 50%. I hope they will come out with an extended life battery and cover.

    On a positive note, I love the blue theme going on there. Seriously, I think I need that color scheme on my Droid.

    Maybe try conditioning the battery over the next couple of days. Full charge/Full discharge cycles a couple of times.

    Going to wait for the 3500... The 1750 will probably only get me 1.5-2 additional hours... Hardly enough

    But do try what Droids said. After seeing what you have to do that with extended batteries, we all might as well start doing that with the battery that comes with the phone.

    Yea I like that blue too, the icons look nice too.
