    What? No that's no where near the best way to test battery cause that doesn't offer real world use. 90% of the people out there are connected to the network all day everyday either 3G or 4G.

    I agree with this. Efficiency in the radios and how the phone's software handles data hand offs is far more important than just hardware drain.

    You can easily turn down your brightness or change gps on or off. You can't easily optimize the radio drivers.

    Make it easy with the battery test.
    Leave mobile data /4G on,
    Screen at 100%
    Background data and all that sync crap on.
    What's the point of having a pocket computer if all this stuff is not working.
    Screw all that turning stuff off nonsense.
    I like my screen blazing like the sun. 4G Puling speeds like lighting and most of all, Internet ready to use at the drop of a hat.

    Aright, so ive left the brightness on max, since i like to view this beautiful screen at its best, and with watching hd videos on youtube for half hour on 4g service, and using the phone all day surfing web texting, and on line with customer service for about 40 minutes, id say its doing well battery wise. By 2 am at night or morning however youd like to look at it, its at 20% charge now. Oh and also after surfing the web or watching the videos on youtube, the phone doesnt heat up like how all other phones i have just start heating up like crazy. Toward the 20 min mark it got a bit warm but nothing to notice at all. I guess the quad core actually works like how they said about the low voltage or whatever to use less power and less heat. So thats a plus. Again the LCD is beautiful, i love it. Phone runs great, no problems thus far. As far as data and voice on 4g, i dont know if voice is on 4g on this phone, but when im on the phone i am able to use the internet just fine.

    Can't wait for this to hit the stores. Hoping the battery life is as good as it sounds. Keep the info coming, thanks!

    Yes but when sitting on a desk at an angle can you see the one on the front? I can't see my tbolt unless I am looking right at it or its dark.

    yea you can see the front one, i mean its not as big or bright as the back one, but you can see it at different angles. Once im able to take this apart id definitely look into seeing if it has room and is possible to add a row of LEDs under the grill to have a line of leds light up for notification, make it more noticable. I guess im just bored.

    Yes, but you're on WiFi. There's a big difference between being on mobile data and being on WiFi.

    Like ive said before, when im not home its never on wifi its on 4G, but at the END of the day when i get home, im on WIFI because i have no coverage for data in my area. No 3g and no 4g. Also when i am not home wifi is left ON even though i dont connect to any networks and just use 4G so that should even drain more battery leaving it on and not using it either. So 95% of the day when i was not home, i used 4G in the city, and when i got home and got on the computer to post on the forums, i was on wifi. Hope that helps clarify.

    I'd like to know what the speaker sounds like when viewing video on say YouTube. I find it a bit odd having the speaker on the back of a device.

    Odd? The speaker is on the back of most smartphones...
