Battery Life After 2.2 Update
Just wanted to gauge how the rest of you were seeing your battery performance after making the 2.2 upgrade.
I pulled mine off the charger yesterday morning at about 7:00 am, and still have 30% left. This is with lots of Twitter, Facebook, 4Square and email. Light to moderate (at best) internet.
Anyone else having good experiences with battery life?

I wasn't asking for proof of being a flamer, merely a question to those not sitting on a high horse. Perhaps I should have noted that in the above.
Sorry for offending you oh great and mighty battery ninja...

Re: Battery Life After 2.2 Update
My battery seems to be about the same. I use my phone a lot during the day so considering that I'm ok with the battery life. But regarding the OP I haven't noticed any difference from the upgrade.

With moderate use I used to get about 1.5 hours for every 10% battery used. With 2.2 installed I am getting no where near that. It is closer to .5-.75 hour for 10% use. With out using the phone except for one text message, checking the time a few times and checking the radar twice my battery went from 100% at 6pm to 40% at midnight. That is horrible.

after reading above post about talk, i went in and checked everything that can sync on the phone. . .. yep.. . it reverted back to stock invervals.
Gtalk signed in
Google weather/news syncing/News syncing
Sprint app syncing
. . . ect
Now I was getting 18 or so hours yesterday before %20 came on, but it was barely used. Few texts and web and tinkering. much lower then normal usage.
I checked my stats and Android had a ton of partial wake usage.

It seems like my battery life is much worse since the update. (Much worse is subjective, but I would guess it seems to drain about 25% faster than it did before the update) Ive also noticed the phone seems to get much hotter, I can even feel it through the silicone case! The Heat concerns me more than the drain, Does anyone else notice their phone getting hot since the update?

i do mostly text messaging and web browsing to a few of my favorite sites . occasionally i will use youtube and take a few pics. where i primarily use my phone i get full bars so i dont expect the battery to drain looking for a signal. i have followed all the steps for a better battery life but still cant get past 6 hrs. the only thing i havent done is turn off the setting where things automatically update and the only reason being is that it slows down my email but i dont get many of those , only from facebook. the rest of what i dont need is turned off.im looking in to getting an extended battery soon.

While I haven't done the battery recalibration thing yet, my battery life has fallen back to first week levels of terrible. I've been running without task killers since a hard reset a couple of weeks ago and was easily getting 14-18 hours of nominal use before hitting sub-20% battery level; now it's there in about six hours and the warmth is pronounced through the Body Glove case.

my battery life seems to be the same, 10+ hours. That's with texting, internet, photos, etc. So I am happy that the update did not compromise the battery.yEzZiR! - samsung n400 w/camera > Sanyo mm7400 > Sanyo VM4500> Samsung Instinks > Palm pre > HTC EVO 4g

I'm so sick and tired of all the worrries about battery life and turning this off and re calibrating this that and the other ... I bought 2 sets of the Ebay batteries ($20 delivered) which means i have 5 batts now ... I want to use the phone in all its full glory so I do ... I always have at least 3 batteries including the one in the phone ... If I am in my car I plug it in ... If i am at home I plug it in ... I can go at least a full 24hrs of HEAVY use with three batteries and Im talking a couple of full movies and all ... I don't mind ... I carry a satchel everywhere I go anyway ( I am mostly on my motorcycle ) ... No worries ... No worries ... No worries .
