Still depends on what apps and widgets you have installed / running. Are you rooted? Overclocked? I'm rooted, overclocked, have several widgets running and browse heavily (as well as email and make calls) and still get at least 12 hours. Brightness is around 36%.

Was the music streaming (like Pandora)? or from the sdcard? Either way, that'll drain it quicker, but Pandora much quicker than sdcard. Still shouldnt be 6 hours though.
Was the screen running for a constant hour? like browsing and listening to music for a straight hour? I can see that being pretty demanding. Though...still not 6 hours. I usually get 24+ with moderate use, but i never use it for music.
Well I didnt have any widgets that run in the back. I use taskiller. I mean imnnot a noobie when it comes to android but still...6 hours seems like nothing. Im still confused on how these batteries work. Im pretty sure they dont have memory. I want to enjoy my phone but not if I have to worry about it dying. Help!

I would never use my phone for music, but that's just me. Music is optional, the phone is not, so preserving battery is everything to me. That said, a. give it time. If you're a newbie, the battery life gets much better in a couple weeks. b. yep, check those running settings and turn crap off! The only ones on on mine, all the time, are the Keyboard (why this is a running app escapes me, my battery widget which lets me turn on/off wifi/bt/gps and shows battery life, and one other....but that's it. I'm constantly turning off my weather services/Google's news and weather, email services....chat services. Keep those off and you can go several days with light use.

Or... you can do like many of us has done and purchase another battery and charger. Both can be had for around $30 (Amazon) if you want the cheaper way out. A more convenient, but expensive solution is to pickup one of the extended batteries like the 2600 or 2800 mah ones.

Welcome to the world of smart-phones!
They just don't have the life that other phones have!
