    I just dont see what the fuss is. Heres my stats for the day:
    Time since unplugged 14h36m
    Time with screen on (auto brightness) 3h6m
    Time without signal 42%

    I mean I know the screen wasnt on too long but thats because I worked a 8-hour shift at my work with 0 signal (hence the 42% without signal) The first day with my tbolt and the screen was on over 4 hours without dying. (no work that day :icon_ banana: ) Note I get 0 4g in the boonies where I live. lol

    I'm almost at 7 hours and 40%. The drop off from 100-80% is so fast you think you'll have 3 hours of battery life but then it pans out. I've taken 4 videos, uploaded them to youtube, surfed, downloaded, called, etc... Trying to wear this thing out.

    I'm not trying to brag, I'm just saying isn't this about what everyone else is getting?

    Unless you left 100 friend syncs, stocks, and other sense things running.

    Could the fast fall off be the new battery learning? Anyone been through a few charge cycles yet and notices it getting any better?

    All my friends with the X don't have great battery at all. Def not 7h screen on time. Might just be a fluke tho. I can't say since I havent owned one. But ill check my friends battery inbetween classes in the morning and it was usually at 60% after really not doing anything.

    The battery sucks.
    I don't have 4g coverage and still my battery doesn't last half as long as my D1 and it only lasts about a third of the time my iPhone 4.

    I've been unplugged for eight hours and I'm at like 60%. Note I'm also in LTE range via the greater area of philadelphia. This phone is a dream just like I thought it would be.

    Maybe because it has a solid 4G connection(full bars) it doesn't need to fight for a connection? Not sure. How much does the 1600mah cost again?

    I only get 3g in my area and I'm going on 11 hrs up time and I'm at 30% . My display time is close to 3 hrs I made about 30 text , about 10 mins for phone call ,2 hrs of Pandora half threw ear phone the other half threw my Bluetooth wireless speaker, surf the net for a hour downloaded a couple apps . To me that's not to bad . I do agree with other from 100% - 80% it does go by quick but from then on it seems pretty good.

    Is love to know you secret. I'm getting like 8 hours max. WiFi and Bluetooth off. Screen dimmed. And that's not even harsh use. But, none the less. I still love the phone. I'll be happy when a 4G toggle is released.

    I'm sure people with the real bad battery life are the ones with 4g in there area. Once there is away to turn off 4g people will be getting better battery life.

    I posted my stats in the other battery thread for yesterday which in summary was 10.5 hours since last charge, 7.5 hours awake and still had 25% battery.
