    How are you guys doing as far as battery life goes?

    I'm eating up 1% every 4 minutes or so....

    I'm using auto brightness if that is an issue.

    1% every 4 minutes was from my phone locked while I'm watching dexter.. A big chunk of it was from facebook. I guess I forgot to close it?

    Any recommendations as far as saving battery life goes?

    In developer options you can set the phone to only allow 1-4 apps open at a time to save battery life.

    I was wondering if it would be good or bad to limit the number of running apps. I figure, limiting it may cause android to close apps that you use often like the launcher/home screen and causing it to have to restart that process. Or does the limiting only apply to non system type of apps?

    The wording on the option sounds as if it's only the apps that show up when you press the current processes button. I set mine to 4 because I don't need more than music, txt messaging, and browser. All the time I have been playing around I check the apps and find 6+ running, so I'll see if it helps the battery these next few days of heavy usage.

    Mine is not very impressive either but I have only had the phone for 10 hours. I know the Razr that I had for a little over a week was horrible at first also. Once I ran the battery all the way down and then fully charged it a few times the battery life seemed to be getting better and better. Give the phone a chance before we all start complaining about battery live.

    Battery life will probably be bad for most today as most people will spend the day setting up their phone.. also, I believe battery life will increase within a couple days.

    Mine seems to be draining a little faster than my DX. Screen is a big chunk which is expected 33% but Android OS is at 36%?? What is that? Never came up on my DX.
