    Though the device was in standby mode for the most part... that's pretty impressive. Just goes to show that the S4 is a very efficient processor...

    But just like the maxx... there's people saying wow.. and there's others saying wth is wrong with my device :)

    Is this the standard or an extended battery?

    there's a guy on the S3 forums who's getting 30+ his on his S3, but most of his is in standby also. I average around 10 with heavy 4G usage, full brightness, etc. and that's pretty good imo.

    Yeah the s4 is definitely the edge... if the device had a lighter UI (this is my opinion, not proven fact.. touch wiz is heavy, at least it seems like it to me) I bet it would do better yet.

    Still impressive.

    I've wondered about that. I mean do the extra manufacturer skins sap battery life? That would be one reason to go stock Android. Hmm...Wish there were some data on that.

    Stand by or not... I've never gotten battery life like that on any phone. I'm still at 38%. Imo, you really can't beat that.

    25 hours, 1.5 hours screen time, 50% battery left. Granted, that's light usage... But still. With my LG Spectrum, it would last no more than 16 hours. And that was with almost NO usage.

    Yeah, I'm looking forward to getting my Verizon SIII rooted to the point I can swap kernels on CM10. Then the phone should last FOREVER! Well, you know what I mean...

    I ended up going to sleep a little after 3a.m. and I still had 30% battery left. The phone ended up lasting me about 18 hours.

    I am getting an average of about 18 to 20 hours on my phone. I am extremely happy with having to recharge every other day.

    I'm impressed by my phones battery life as well. I just went on a 15 hour trip to the outer banks. By the time I got there it was almost dead but I was doing some internet browsing, videos and a few hours of music.

    After I'm done moving in a week or two I'll check into seeing what ROMs are available for my phone. I just don't want to mess up my new toy...
