    How has everyone's battery life fared now that .905 is out? I ask because before the update I would maybe get 14-16 hours of use on my extended battery. Now I can easily get 20 or more (web browsing and game playing)...

    It did take a few days for the 4g connectivity to stabilize after the update but now is fine for me.

    My battery is better since the update under general use.

    Mine is significantly better in strong signal areas. No noticible difference when signal is a little sketchey.

    About the same as before. I unplug at 7am and recharge by 11pm with plenty of battery life to spare. I'm use the extended battery and Juice Defender (although the latter may not be doing a lot).

    Unplugged at 6 am. 100 miles turn by turn navigation. 4 + hours talk time, plus surfing, text, Facebook. 8:25 pm still at 50%. Navigation alone would have killed it by now with. 902. I do have the extended battery. Have had it since 3 days after I got the phone on 2nd day of release. I do love this phone. Even though I have had to sideload every update since new. Even after. 905 still says update not available.

    My battery life seems to have diminished slightly since the .905 update. Nothing dramatic.

    Seems to be a bit better here. Stock with extended battery.

    Battery life is so much better because the phone never has a data connection

    Very slightly worse, but survivable.

    Mine has gotten better. I work in an old brick building with terrible service so I would get about 6 hours on an extended battery and now I get about 10 to 12 hours. When I'm home and connected to my wifi I get 24 to 30 hours. Before it was about 16 hours.
