    What do you consider good battery life? I can't tell if its the ROM or kernel or in my head...I do see that when fully charged I'll drop to 90% after 10 min on browser and hover there for about an hour. Overall drop around 10% an hour with brightness set to 0 and moderate browsing (music on in background)

    sounds about right. Theres so many variables to consider when getting an idea on how the battery life is. Browsing the web will kill your battery in no time as well games.

    You could get setcpu and downclock the cpu when charging/sleeping so it uses less CPU when your not using it to preserve battery

    Making it through the day. I'm not sure that analyzing 10 minutes of usage is really all that meaningful.

    100 to 90% is always a lot faster than even 90 to 80%

    Yes, it's subjective. For me, I'm satisfied with two days of standby with no calls, frequent background syncing on wifi, and bluetooth on. Then again, I've also got lousy reception at my house.

    Someone at verizon said you have to "train your battery..." basically, not keeping it on a charger, and making sure it goes all the way dead before recharging. Is this bs or what?
