When on my first trip with Thunderbolt. Despite the fact that inside of hotels/casinos in Las Vegas I got almost no 4G service, and sometimes not even 3G the battery did pretty damn well. I think I got 24+ hours on a single charge two days in a row with moderate use. I've even turned the brightness up from 0% to around 7%. In bright sunshine I'll go as far as 25%. It's a relief to finally be able to do that. I also found a great brightness widget that allows for instant changing to any %.
Glad to be back in Phoenix though, where I get 4G almost everywhere.
After yesterday with the 4G outage, my battery life improved. I attributed that to the fact that I wasn't browsing the internet with my TBolt... why would I? It was way too sloooooow. But today, I woke up to a pleasant surprise, 4G was backk!
And now, my battery life has doubled, if not trippled with identical use to before. 88% after 2h45m with 21 minutes of screen on time (between 9% and 25% brightness, depending on where I was) with emails, texting and angry birds... amazing. I hope this continues.
Sweet! Have not noticed. I was in a store with no service and it taxed my battery pretty well. I will pay more attention on next full charge.

What's that battery brightness widget you've been using?

I use a widget called brightness level. It is much better than the stock one because you can either use a preset or pick your percentage.
