I've only had my T-Bolt for a day now and when I got it I was expecting terrible battery. I've been on it nonstop like everyone is when they get a new phone. As I am waiting for the battery to drain quickly it just isn't doing it. The battery is no worse on this phone than it is on my X. I think people that don't like the battery are coming from flip phones or something. I don't know but I must say I am happy with what I am seeing from the battery so far.
