    okay, same battery over night charged on standby. light use-some Facebook, Em's, texts. The big difference-> 100% 3G. 7 1/2 hours 70%.
    Either 4G is a huge drain, or my 4G reception at work is not great. let's see how long I last with 3G today.
    @shoot2-> I'm going to keep both batteries. So far so good and it looks like the charge is longer than the 1400 stock so far. Still too early to tell for sure.

    Hmm I still don't think 7+ hours and at 70% is that great I'm at 5 hours and 85% on stock battery.

    Edit: I guess kernel and clock speed is gonna be a factor in the testing also.

    @ GSX- LOL! It's great for me. The stock battery barely made it to 8 hours on 4G with medium use. BTW, I am not rooted.

    Same 1700 battery -> 13 hours 60% on 3G, mostly stand by the last 2 hours. Gonna burn a little awake/online time now.

    What is the battery life like on 4G all day?

    I'm in Metro Detroit and we are completely 4G. I would have to drive 2-3 hours to get out of 4G coverage. I'm really dragging my feet on getting the Thunderbolt because I'm worried about the battery life (being on 4G all day, everyday). I don't want the added bulk of the extended battery... which is why I'm so interested in this thread.

    Thanks,
    Jason

    There are free apps in the market to keep it in 3g and easy to switch back when you need 4G speed.

    Yeah, I read about that and knew about it, but it sort of defeats the purpose of buying a 4G phone. I would prefer to be able to just leave it in 4G since that's the main selling point for the phone.

    Like I said, I'm just curious and interested in how long the 1700mAh batter is going to last on 4G all day. Thanks for the heads up though.

    Until 4G is more widespread I think 4G battery issues are not going to be phone specific.

    Yup... I think that at some point there will have to be a minimum battery spec on all 4G phones. Obviously it will be larger than 1400mAh.

    As the technology matures it'll get more efficient.

    The battery life of this phone is absolutely horrible, period. Mine has never even seen 4g and I can't make it through the day. Sure miss my X.

    Here's how I see it,

    4G is fantastic for a hotspot, otherwise 3G is plenty fast enough for everything else. Download LTE OnOff. It's free and it looks like a telco guy or girl developed it just to let the public have a solid option quickly.

    If you keep it on 3G it's a great phone, it's fast and the battery last a long time relatively speaking. with two button clicks you can turn on 4G whenever you need a hot spot.

    The problem you are most likely having is roaming between 3G and 4G. That kills the battery. You can also nail up 4G with the LTE OnOff App.

    If you still need a serious battery then get the 2750 mha.
