    My wife got an IPhone (Verizon) and it's lasting 3 days before charging... and I have to admit it's not that bad.

    Meanwhile I have to charge my Droid constantly.

    Does any Android model get IPhone like battery life?

    My friend has a Facinate and claims to get great battery life like that.

    I had no idea the IPhone had such superior battery life. I still don't want one but that's a tremendous point in it's favor.

    I'm still looking at getting the Bionic - hopefully that battery life will be better.

    Well if you don't use the screen or 3g at all then you won't use any battery.. if it was activated it wouldn't last a day.

    My wife's LG Ally get 2-3 days between charges, she talks about 30 minutes a day on the phone and texts about 20-30 times. She does not use the web a lot except for the occasional google search and playing music with subsonic. I believe the large screen size of my Thunderbolt, powerful CPU and stupid HTC/Verizon add ons hurts my battery life quite a bit.

    Add to the fact that the iPhone doesn't have widgets helps it's battery quite a bit.

    I use my phone constantly during the day and charge every night. I took it off the charger at 8 this morning... Used it all day (and my son played games on it)... It's now 11pm and I'm at 40%. Everyone is going to have different experiences tho... This is my normal experience. I'm on Liberty GB .6 with the original DX battery.

    I'm always by a charger, so I don't need 3 days of battery life. I'd rather have the customization options...

    Oh I know. I couldn't believe it lasted that long though.

    Used to get about 18hrs on a normal day before. More like 12-14 on what I considered heavy use
