    What about an emergency? Just not an option for many.

    yesterday i got 22 hours with moderate use and 20% battery left before putting it on charge. A few calls, lots of texting, internet browsing, market downloads, mostly wifi connected. I installed a data on-off switch widget on my phone so if i am not planning on going on the web (unless on wifi) or receiving/ sending picture messages saves a load of battery.

    Screen time only 37 minutes, so I'm not surprised at the long battery life. I'm not sure I'd call 15.5 hours of up time, with just 37 min of screen time "moderate use", though.

    After surffering through Motorola's Bionic, this phone is fabulous. Battery life is great!

    How about using the built in one in the notification status bar?

    I just use it so it's right on my home screen rather than pulling down the notification bar. It's called Data ON-OFF

    No reason for apps like that anymore, not when its build into the phone.

    It's all personal preference. Every phone comes with a stock text, email, and contacts app, yet people still download those things from the play store.

    Yesterday when I plugged my phone in for the night my battery was at 34% and I had about 14hrs on it with moderate use . Every smart phone that I have owned I had a spare battery just in case.

    After 15 hours yesterday, I plug it in at bedtime with 24% remaining. Using Bluetooth, Slacker Radio, social media, and email throughout the day. Not too shabby.
