P.S. I'm not trying to sound like I had this info handed to me on a silver platter; my first week I was charging my phone twice a day on light-to-moderate use, but after doing testing and sifting some of the good advice from the bad I never had to charge before bedtime even with pretty hard use.

on the back of my battery it says 1500/1540 mAh (min/typ)
so it's at least 1500, but they typically are 1540 is what i decipher from that.
oh, and fwiw, i can go a day easy on it with moderate use. almost impossible with my incredible that even had the extended battery.
in this respect motorola has consistently delivered a better product than htc.

Not surprising the DInc came in last with the AMOLED screen. However, they article doesn't say if the X was running 2.1 or 2.2. I'm sure the DInc was running 2.1.
Also the DInc's 1300 mAh is the lowest rated battery...
Okay, reading my above post it does sound like I'm making excuses, but it has to be said!

My father in laws DX on the other hand has had lots of battery problems and always needs charger "tethering"

My biggest gripe is having to go into settings> applications> running to shut down all the Facebook apps, pre-installed news apps, pre-installed battery monitor, Skype (that I don't use on my dx), g-talk, etc that combined KILL my battery.

This works until I power off or (rarely) do a battery pull. Then, all over again - every time.... Shut down the unwanted apps. Otherwise, I'm to 70% by 9 am.
We should be able to eliminate the pre-installed apps we don't use or want. When this stuff is shut down, I get GREAT battery life. 60% at end of busy day.

Changing all of those allows me to get 12-18 hours out of a charge on my phone depending on use that day. Biggest thing, control the screen and you control your battery. Longer you leave it on at full brightness the quicker your battery goes down.
