    I wanted to start this thread and give users a place to post what battery usage times they got. I would prefer that you post them from a 100% charge to a 5% charge if possible, to give a good record of how long the unit lasted and what you did with it.

    At the 5% warning the following is alittle tidbit of my usage with the phone

    Uptime: 21 Hours 27 Min
    Talk Time: 3 Hours 10 Min
    Screen Usage: 45 Min
    Facebook App (looking at pictures of my god-daughter): 20 Min
    App Market Place: 15 Min
    Google Maps: 10 Min

    Can you break this down. Are you saying that is your estimate for time of usage of each? What percentage do they account for in battery use?

    Talk time was 71%
    Screen usage was 4%

    The other was just a breakdown of the screen usage.. The % value went away before i could get all the data.

    Cell Standby - 12% 1d 3h 20m
    Android sys. - 6% 24m

    It was partly the awesomeness of the screen. Mostly I was just playing around with the different features and settings trying to get used to the phone. First real smart phone that I have owned so something totally new for me.

    I'd have to say this is not untypical of what my battery usage looks like. I'll routinely go the 14-15 hours between morning unplugging and night plugging back in and get down to 20% battery life left, but the display usage will be 40+%. I've got the brightness cranked down to almost nothing, but it's still way up there in the percentage. Is this a possible problem?

    The only reason i laughed was because nothing else on his phone went above like 30 minutes other then his display ;)
