    Can anyone with a new Incredible 2 what the battery life is like? I know the Thunderbolt is dreadful, I was wondering if the Incredible 2 was better. How long can you go without a charge? How is it when compared with the iPhone 4 (the other phone I'm considering for my mom).

    I got my Incredible 2 yesterday.
    I charged it fully & removed it from the charger at 8:30 this morning, it's now almost 8:30 PM & I still have 70% battery life.
    It's great if you shut the background data off, don't run your wi-fi all day and such.
    I had an iPhone & it's an AWFUL phone!
    If it freezes, you can't do anything, the battery is built is so soft resets are impossible.
    Definitely look into an Incredible 2.
    I'm very happy with it, best Droid I've had yet.

    By far the best phone I've ever had, and I tried TB for 2 weeks and went back to Inc. The Incredible 2 battery life is fantastic.

    I agree. 4G was sketchy for me.

    All indications are that the battery life is phenomenal, much like the Incredible S (which makes sense since they're essentially the same phone). I need a global phone with great battery life, so I just might have to pick this one up. The off contract price makes the acquisition much easier as well.

    I have had the Inc 2 since launch date and the battery life is great. I've been really following the NFL draft and have been using internet and email a lot, along with twitter. I did this all yesterday, unplugged at 7:30 AM (it was at 100 percent) and at 10:30 PM I had 22 battery percent life. With the DInc I would have to charge the phone in the middle of the day with all that use. I love this phone!

    Have you guys done anything to your phones? I got my inc2 on friday night and saturday it was fully charged at about 7am and i had to charge it about 4 hours later. I turned a lot of stuff off and set mail and status updates to manual but I was playing games on it the whole time. Is that normal?

    Been off of charger for 26 hours. Light usage, lot of texting, wi-fi and Bluetooth on. My battery is at 70%.

    I love this freaking phone.

    4 solid of hours of gaming will drain any phone.

    Today, my battery is having some issues....
    I unplugged it at 9 AM, it's 9 PM & I'm at about 30%.
    I've sent/received maybe 15 texts today total.
    Internet browsing for about 20 minutes.
    I have my brightness turned down to like 30% & all my background data (wifi, gps as well) turned off.
    Is it just me?

    Any ideas?

    I put on ATK & it seems to not being doing anything.
    Set to Auto-Kill, Safe, When Screen Off.
    Should I set it to aggressive?

    I find it weird when I "kill" my apps, including my browser, when I pull my browser back up, it STILL has all my previously viewed pages open.

    How do I fix this? Definitely think it's draining my battery.

    Get rid of your task killer that'll eat up your battery and there's no need for it
