    Default battery drain with netflix?

    the G2 so far has been great in terms of battery with everything but playing games and streaming videso for me over wifi.

    Just curious how long can you stream movies before you have to charge? I lost about 20% on a 40 minute HD show, to me that seems very fast and brightness was only at 21% plus wifi

    Radio running 100% of the time (it's transmitting acks constantly). Screen running 100% of the time. GPU running hard. That's using a lot of battery even if the screen brightness is low.

    How long? I don't have an S2, so I can't say, but with a phone that's going to be using more current than than the charger port can supply, the time between charges will depend on the difference between the amount being used and the amount being supplied.

    I finished watching the movie which was an hour left, after charging phone to 100% , can see the 1 hour movie over netflix used 15% over wifi, is this what others are getting on average? is this good for this battery and phone?

    So I did a test just to compare with copying a HD video locally to SD card, and for 1 hour lost only 10% compared to 15% with netflix

    Based on this review this guy got 16 hours how is that possible?
