    I'm probably considered a "light to moderate" user, don't watch movies or play many games or anything, but do lots of email/texting/reading, and maybe an hour a day on average of actual phone calls, at the most. I've had a lot of Android phones, and this one has by far the best battery life out of the box that I've seen... glad to see it's finally getting noticed a little bit more.

    (add about 6 hours to this total as it was plugged in via usb for about 30 seconds to transfer a file)

    Another thing I've done that works is turning off the vibrate during typing. I do live this feature but since I do a lot of testing and email i turned it off. Much better bat.

    initially my battery sucked.. but like 5 days ago there was one charge where it lasted 58 hours and it only died because i decided to force it with games and internet so it could of went alot longer. As of late it goes for about a day without needing to charge. Pretty awesome.

    Yea you should be getting way more than 10hrs. I got 18 yesterday with some moderate to heavy use. I usually get 20+. I get over 2 days with light use. This phone has awesome battery out of box. I don't even have to turn auto sync off. I do have my brightness set at 40% though.

    I typically get at least 36 hours with light to moderate use. If I'm not getting a lot of phone calls I can stretch it over 48

    I noticed 3g kills the battery pretty fast. If you have wifi.. go for it.

    That's any data driven phone. Wifi is always much better on the battery.

    And I agree, this thing is absolutely fantastic. I bought mine from someone else and have a Seidio he had included with the purchase. I still have yet to see if the Seidio is any better on battery, the stock is running just that good, especially rooted.

    I finally picked up a new Bluetooth earpiece so that is going to take a little more toll on the battery while I'm out, but I still expect it to do great.

    Oh, and as much as I used to think it was snake oil, Juice Defender also seems to help on this phone. Just the free version is all I'm running at this point.

    Yup, just the initial balanced settings. I'll probably go back and get the paid version at some point to tinker with it heavier, but so far, it already seems to do a good job.

    I need to give the Seidio a shot just out of curiosity.

    I'm guessing not, and probably on wifi the whole time?

    I'm at 7 hours uptime and still at 100% - on home wifi, a little bit of use.

    Also, bump charging makes a big difference, don't forget to do that... It's not fully charged to 100% unless you bump charge it.
