    What kind of battery life are you all getting with non extended battery

    That'll do it! The faster you drive you car, the worse the mileage. ;)

    I'm charging daily here as well, but that's fine with me. If I'm at home, it's in the media dock by the time I go to bed and if I'm in my vehicle it's in the car dock so it's going to get charged anyways. I do keep a charger with me to plug it in if I somehow go through a whole battery. Hasn't happened yet, but I am looking at getting an extended battery so I have an extra just in case.

    First smart phone for me, but tbh, I don't expect it to have the same battery life I had with my old flip phone considering what this thing can do. I suppose others have had better experiences with other smart phones, but as I've read somewhere here, batteries have yet to catch up to supporting extensive smart phone usage, and I think that's probably pretty accurate. Hopefully we'll see some decent developments in that area in the coming years.

    Yeah, I'm wondering that too... I can get at most about 20-24 hours with my Seidio extended battery (I think there's something wrong with it though, but the point still stands...)
