    So far i've:
    -Set smart actions to turn off mobile data off when display is off
    -Set the brightness to 20ish at all times
    -Set to 3G only, never 4G
    -Turned off animations
    -Set facebook + news feed apps to refresh never/very rarely (havent done anything to gmail, not sure how)
    -GPS+Bluetooth off at all times
    -Auto-sync is off (not sure if it helps or not)
    -Not too many widgets, no live wallpapers, etc

    Yet my phone still dies quite fast. About 1 minute of surfing the web/facebook probably knocks off 1% of the battery when i'm connected to 3G. Is that normal? If not, Is there something that I'm forgetting? Here are my battery usage statistics, if it matters:

    display: 40%
    voice calls: 12%
    android OS: 12%
    cell standby: 5%
    phone idle: 5%
    browser: 5%
    droidforums: 5%
    facebook: 4%
    wifi: 3%
    android system: 2%

    if you need any other info that may help you answer my question of what else can i do to help the battery last longer, let me know.

    I'd appreciate all help.

    What exactly did you do to get that battery life that I haven't listed above? What is "smart app"?

    To the OP: from the looks of yours battery use percentages, it looks pretty normal. The display has always been the biggest battery drain to me.

    You can check out my battery experiments post to see how many percentage points each activity drained for my phone.
