    How many of you are looking forward to this? A friend of mine told me about this phone, so I returned my thunderbolt an am waiting for this. I prefer the 4" screen.

    Returning to the aforementioned battery life on the Incredible S, it's pretty darn impressive. In one rundown test, we managed to pass the 12-hour mark with 10 percent of juice left in spite of watching a two-hour movie (Star Trek II, thanks for asking), handling our contraband gadget emails, testing out in-browser Flash playback, and setting aside a few minutes for Angry Birds. There were, of course, periods of the phone just sitting idle (mostly idle, Gmails never stopped coming in), but it's undeniable that the Incredible S leaves predecessors like the Desire and Desire HD looking at the ground in shame. That 1450mAh cell seems to be used judiciously as well, as we noticed the vast majority of power was being consumed by the screen or the apps we had running in the foreground -- exactly the way it ought to be. Should you be content with a slightly lower screen brightness and a little less multimedia action, we can imagine getting a couple of days out of the Incredible S on a regular basis.

    Well, I had the original INC with 1300mAh battery and such life was only possible in my dream :) the S with bigger screen and more powerful hardware...i doubt it, i can guarantee a sleuth of complains about battery life here.

    Was the testing done on Verizon service or with wifi only?

    Well I'm saying your talking about battery life on a device that's getting great reviews for battery life, but you own a phone that has had horrible reviews about battery life (great reviews overall, just bad battery).

    The Inc 2 is not out yet, so there is no real testing done. For comparison, my Inc ate ONLY 40% battery for 2 days on wifi with updates on, weather every hour and gps on. But on Verizon service it would drain 30% overnight idling, i.e. the only thing that changed was the use of the antenna, but that made all the difference between por battery life and an amazing one...
