    Its not double for me personally, I guess I should have added that I was getting about 20-21 hours on my stock battery (to give it context), and can get anywhere from 25-35 hours on the Sedio, because I'm not constantly playing with my phone all day and don't have a bunch of junk constantly syncing/updating, I have utilized many of my battery saving techniques from the tips thread, and part of that time was spent sleeping obviously. You don't have to believe me, but that doesn't change the fact that I'm getting great battery life, especially for a powerful smartphone that many others have been experiencing trouble with. I'm also not in an LTE area, since that seems to make a difference.

    Oh that makes more sense now. You don't use your phone. For the rest of us that do we're averaging about 10 hours. An extra 200MAH won't do squat for us.

    Actually, I use my phone plenty (what I would consider light-moderate use during the week and moderate use on the weekend, but I would not consider myself a "heavy" user), its not just sitting in my pocket or desk all day long with the screen off. While everyone's use is different, I do all the normal things that anyone would do with this phone: emails, texts, calls, games, apps, streaming audio, internet, facebook, chat, camera, time & weather, calendar, news, etc. Sorry you only get 10 hours, sounds like you are a heavy user and need to keep a charger handy or buy the HTC 2750 extended battery instead of the Seidio. Screen set to 20-25% helps too. Auto is way too bright unless you're outside.

    I'm in a full 4G area, and I'm not complaining about battery life. I like the slim factor of the phone so I refuse to install a brick on it. I don't need that sticking out of my suit pants pocket in a meeting.

    I too went for the Seidio slim extended 1600 and went from about 6-7 hours to 9-10 hours between charges, moderate use, screen turned down a third etc. It's worth it to me to cover a full work day out and about.

    Looking at phone right now it's at 72% and it's been on for 6 hours, 20 mins in very light use (3 calls, some email and twitter checks, screen set to blank at 30 secs). So it does depend how heavily you lean on the scree and the 4G.

    Some people have claimed that the MyTouch 4G uses the same stock battery as the Thunderbolt. I cannot personally verify this, nor can I recommend buying this battery since it does not say it was designed to be used in the TB. If you decide to, please let us know how it works out. As long as it fits properly in the compartment, it should not cause problems, but there is no guarantee that it will fit.

    I believe you and know for a fact that everything you say is possible, unless something drastic happens ill get 24.hours out of my latest charge on a stock battery....these people complaining are just too lazy to make adjustments

    Or they actually want to use their phone they way it was designed instead of having a dumbed down version. Why buy a 400HP car when you de-mod it to be 120HP? I don't use widgets or any of that facebook,myspace,twitter crap so I removed them but others might actually want to report on what they just ate and when the robber can come steal their stuff because they reported they will be working late.

    That doesn't mean they are lazy. Their priorities are just different.

    Ok so use it how you think it should be used ,when I started shopping for smart phones I was told not to expect more than 10-12 hours per charge...you people need to stop whining and take your phones back if you're not happy with it

    If you want your phone to last 20 hours "out of the box," get an iPhone or BB. To get that kind of life on Android with moderate use, you have to make adjustments to your settings and customize your phone to get it the way YOU want it. I think that is one of the main draws of Android, the fact that you can control and change things. Everyone has different needs, and you can customize your phone towards that purpose. My phone is not "dumbed down" as you say, I simply changed a few settings to help extend the life of my battery. For example, I got rid of Friendstream, but still use plenty of widgets and have other things updating periodically.

    Where on this forum do you see me complaining about battery life? Oh that's right I'm not. I blame HTC for not making an extended battery like the DX though. Slim form not fat bricks.
