Tagging this thread for future updates. Likely going to buy a Thunderbolt this weekend. Please let us know if these alleged 1700mah batteries are actually an improvement.
Okay charged and bumped again last night the same 1700 battery after it got down to 15%. Lighter use today, all 4G, a few short phonecalls(under 3 minutes each), some texting, browsing and FaceBook. No downloads or streaming. Now 7 hours at 50%.
Got to about 9 3/4 hours before I hit the 20% warning. 100% 4G-no streaming. Let's see what tomorrow brings! I may try something different-like manually retrieving EMs and checking FaceBook.
okay, same battery over night charged on standby. light use-some Facebook, Em's, texts. The big difference-> 100% 3G. 7 1/2 hours 70%.
Either 4G is a huge drain, or my 4G reception at work is not great. let's see how long I last with 3G today.
@shoot2-> I'm going to keep both batteries. So far so good and it looks like the charge is longer than the 1400 stock so far. Still too early to tell for sure.
Hmm I still don't think 7+ hours and at 70% is that great I'm at 5 hours and 85% on stock battery.

Edit: I guess kernel and clock speed is gonna be a factor in the testing also.

@ GSX- LOL! It's great for me. The stock battery barely made it to 8 hours on 4G with medium use. BTW, I am not rooted.
Same 1700 battery -> 13 hours 60% on 3G, mostly stand by the last 2 hours. Gonna burn a little awake/online time now.
What is the battery life like on 4G all day?
I'm in Metro Detroit and we are completely 4G. I would have to drive 2-3 hours to get out of 4G coverage. I'm really dragging my feet on getting the Thunderbolt because I'm worried about the battery life (being on 4G all day, everyday). I don't want the added bulk of the extended battery... which is why I'm so interested in this thread.
