    I get about four hours of droid display on every charge. I use the regular oem battery
    -Always have GPS, Display to lowest it can go, wifi off, Bluetooth, and sync always off. Also backround data off.
    Do mostly texting with a occasional web browsing, also check email once or twice a day.

    haha, Sorry I wasn't so clear. I mean 4 hours of battery usage with the display on doing tasks. I was just wondering with your usage type how many minutes/hours of display on you get per charge.

    Also yes there is a way to measure the amount of display on per charges. (or until your plug your device into a charger)

    Are you just eyeballing it or is there some way to actually measure display usage?

    I'm just trying to figure out if that's display usage with wifi/gps/any_of_the_other_factors on, off etc

    But 4 hours with display sounds about right

    I don't understand... are you talking about just leaving the display on (as in, turning the screen timeout off) constantly and you get 4 hours of battery? Or do you mean 4 hours of battery usage with the display on doing tasks (browsing, email, texting, etc)? If you're doing stuff, it isn't just the display using the battery (obviously), and if you are talking about just leaving the display on constantly even when you aren't using the phone.... why would you ever even do this in the first place?

    Phandroid has a video where the guy ran his phone for about 7 hours straight with the display never sleeping, at its maximum brightness - with music playing the whole time.

    I'm similar; have sync on, gps on, and auto screen brightness on. I get about 4-4.5 hrs of straight internet browsing/texting before the battery gets to the 30% mark.
