    Your kidding right? Phone ships today and your asking this already?

    It's more than likely going to be the same as the X...I get 14-18 hours off of a charge.

    And Welcome to the Madness here....

    I'd wait for Froyo before dumping the incredible. According to the rumors I've heard, DI lasts the day with light use and not using any stupid Live backgrounds and dozens of self-updating widgets.

    First "full day" with it..got it yesterday afternoon...
    charged overnight and unplugged it at 0345 before heading off to work...it was dead by 0945-1000

    Of course I was flipping through the home screens, learning how to use it etc for a lot of that time...but still seems very low

    I'm currently charging it again right now

    i got my yesterday and played with it. I then fully charged mine before I went out last night where I was showing people it and playing with it. Today i've been fooling around with it, but not a whole lot, and I'm at 50% battery life so far. So right now im at 17 hours with 50% left. Keep in mind i'm not using it every minute and it goes into night mode during the night.

    First day was bad for me too. I received it at work, charged it fully and unplugged at 5PM. By 8:30 PM it was down under 20%. Charged all night AND turned off the GPS under services and I've used it for about 6.5 hours today and it's up around 80% life left.

    I wouldn't expect anyone's battery to be lasting very long right now. Everyone is playing on it constantly doing all kinds of stuff.
