I waited and double tested before I posted up...I have a Infuse 4G and talked my g/f into the Stratosphere...got it at Costco for $20....really a great phone...she was coming from a Blackberry and immediately started to complain about battery life and I thought she would just have to get used to it...but, I have done some testing, reviewed her apps, her screen brightness, etc....everything should be just ok but when I was as her house, it went from 63% to 45% in about one hour doing nothing. I know we need to go back to Costco but I wondered if anyone else had some issues. This Las Vegas so we have decent 4G and I also told her to turn off wifi when she works inside the courthouse all day.

Re: Battery Issues
It's strange, I have the opposite problem. I forgot to plug my Stratosphere in last night and it was still alive and well when my wife called me at about 8 this morning. Though I have the extended battery.My 'droidz:
Samsung Stratosphere (rooted, TweakStock 1.4), Motorola Devour (rooted, retired), Acer Iconia A500, Coby Kyros MID7022

Here's what I am going through..
I am in Tampa and on 4G outside of my shop and home those 2 places I have wifi. When I am in my shop I have the desktop charger with the UsB plug in so its much slower to charge which is fine no big deal.
So I can go 2 days without charging on the weekends.
I went to Iowa next week..was on 3G 95% of the time it ate up my battery. I had to turn off several apps and pretty much have it plugged it at all times (still on wifi @ my parents). I would plug in my charger and several hrs later it said it was charged and to unplug and it would be bright blue and full. I unplug the charger it would be @ 17% or completely dead.
It was crazy.. gtalk wouldn't work, none of my emails come in. It got to the point whenever I leave for several hours I had to use my battery back up device.
I thought 4G at up more battery??
