    Hey wuts up im new to the forums but not to the droid. Started with a bb storm 2 and after 2 new swaps I was offered a droid 1 in june n couldn't believe wut I was missing. Than recently it broke n bestbuy gave me the D2g even though I wanted the x but wutevr. When I first got it battery life was garbage even after checkin gsm network only and deleting retorted widgets n blur crap. I got 6 hours at the most even just in standby! But since the update they released I get now ovr 24 hours standby and around 12 hours if used heavily! Its freaked sweet... anyone else experience this? ?

    No, my battery life is still pretty mediocre at best. I find that if I turn off autosync, I can get a few more hours.

    I noticed the same thing, mine wasn't totally awful to begin with - I got 8 - 10 hours out of it to begin with. after the update I got maybe 12-14 hrs with regular to heavy use.

    I have changed a bunch of stuff and am getting 20-22 hrs of reg to heavy use. I am working on a post explaining what all I have done.

    Please do, I would love to read it :)

    Just switched from a Droid 1 to a Droid 2 Global and my battery life is terrible. I spent maybe a total of 15 mins on my phone yesterday and it was dead by 7pm (after charging for 7 hours the previous night).
