    I updated from the leaked ics to the official version. How is this battery life? This is with LTE off, some WiFi and some 3G. I don't think this is that good, but I do use the phone a lot.

    For a standard battery, getting 3.5 hours screen time and about an hour of talk time over almost 10 hours seems about average to me, you could probably squeak out a little moer if you lower the display brightness to about 20-25% (low), the screen is what will kill ya. This is still better than what my Samsung Stratosphere would get though.

    I knew I was forgetting to mention something. I'm using an extended battery. Guess that means my battery life is pretty poor.

    I noticed it said your average life is 13+ hours. That's about what I'm getting on my extended battery as well.
    I would check your phone radio stats and see how much is in the low, that's my biggest battery vampire, usually about 40% or more for me.

    Thanks. I might be expecting more out of this phone than I should. I'm going to drain it to 15% tomorrow evening when I go to work, turn it off and charge it. Hope that will help some. I usually have access to some type of charger, but I was under the impression with the extended battery it would last a reallly long time.

    Honestly, with this device the one draw back is the battery life, depending what you compare it too it is dreadful, but that is the trade-off we pay for having the best display and radios of any Android device on the market today!

    It will last a really long time if you have good to great signal but the phone is going to up its radio power output attempting to get a better or any signal in weak areas.

    Nothing has changed in the department from the very beginning of cell phones. Weak signal or looking for signal eats the battery up quickly.

    But it doesn't show up in most stats, hence many can't understand why some phones can go a year between charges on a standard battery while the rest of us bask in mediocrity, even with an extended battery.
    With my Incredible1 the place I go camping has such good signal I'd leave my charger at home when camping for the weekend , and have plenty of battery to spare even after heavy usage, yet charging every day when near my home is a must, even with light usage.

    I love this phone but battery life is brutal. I've got

    Stock HTC 1620mah
    Extended HTC 27xxmah
    2 Ebay 1800mah
    2 Ebay 3500mah

    Running NeoMax: Adrenaline 1.5 (ICS .10 leak) LTE off, screen 50% at all times, sycn only gmail, ect. Basically running pretty bare bones and I still feel tied down to the charger.
