    "Official"? Bionic battery life thread

    Hey Mods- How about we start an official battery life thread for people to report how that is going? That is a big question for a lot of people sitting on the sideline about this phone. Most other 4G LTE on VZW phones so far have been big battery hogs. If the battery life is way better, more people may want to jump from their current phone to this new kid. People need to be their own judge of "light, moderate, heavy" use of the phone to give us a good comparison. Please also always let us know if you are on 4G all the time, only in a 3G area, in a "fringe area" where it will switch back and forth on it's own, or if you manually turn off 4G most of the time.
    Just a thought.

    Please see post #322 for a template to use to standardize phone settings and usage. This will make it easier to see if your settings are in line with others that have better or worse battery life than you do. Thanks to Psychlone for coming up with this.

    I got the extended battery and waiting for it to charge fully before running into the wild with it. I'll report my mileage and usage here if another thread doesn't get pinned up.

    how does it feel in your pocket with the extended battery?
    I'm tempted to pick one up but it looks like a tank.

    I think that's pretty common for a new battery. It should improve after a couple of charge cycles.

    Same here but I've been on 3G and wireless. I'd say it looks pretty promising for a first charge.

    The way the OS reads the battery charge will change after a couple of cycles. Many people say that the battery improves, but my guess is that it's the OS that learns that 90% after the 1st charge is really better.
