    Typical day of voice is between 1-2 hours, hold sucks. I'm a creature of habit, charge my phone from 2-5PM, when it hits the charger its right around 50% with about 4 hours of screen, plus talk time. When I try to kill it off for calibrating the meter is 44 hours of up time, 8-9 hours of screen, 3-5 hours of voice.
    I have to try real hard to kill it in 44 hours. You tube straight for 2 hours works pretty well to knock off 30% of my battery. My screen up time is texting, forums, email, FB etc.

    If it's not HD it might as well be a newspaper.

    5+ hours of screen, are you texting? Angry birds? Streaming videos?

    BTW I'm now at 61%, this is the 1st time I touched the phone since earlier.

    Jaydub5, have you tried to turn off chrome sync. Chrome loves to constantly refresh. I killed on mine and "whoa!!! What a difference"

    If it's not HD it might as well be a newspaper.

    I keep the main sync off. How do I turn off Chrome Sync? I looked in
    Chrome Settings... Zip.
    Right now I have only 2 bars of signal strength. I max out at 3 bars.

    open up chrome > close all tabs > menu > settings > click your email account > sync off.

    in 18 hours it only had 4 wake locks and 20 seconds of background usage. Down from 700 to 800 wake locks 20 minutes of background cpu usage.

    Turning off Chrome sync

    Once I get to settings, there is no email selection.
    I do not sync to a computer, and have the main
    Sync switch on the power bar off. Is this enough?

    You don't have a gmail account. set one up, where it says basics you will see your gmail adress. Or are you not signed onto chrome?
