My battery life is awesome, how about yours?
So far the phone has been off the charger for 9 hours and I am still at 59% battery life. This is with a steady text messaging conversation all day, 30 minutes playing a game at the doctors, 4g on all day, and a live wall paper. Much better than my Epic was.

Definitely did not plan on carrying a charger with me wherever I go.

My personal experience with the NS4G's battery life is that it's way better than the EVO it replaced. Only thing is, like others have stated, charging seems to be horrendously slow with the Motorola I've been using even with the EVO.
- Motorola charger (850mA unit): I'd estimate that my battery goes up maybe 20% in an hour. Using this same charger on my EVO used to charge it from empty to full in about 1.5 hours.
- stock EVO charger (1000mA): This charger is next to my bed to charge overnight so I don't know how slow/quickly it charges the NS4G.
- stock NS4G charger (? ma): Still in the box.

Compared to my Palm Pre- my battery life has been great. It does take a while for it to charge but I use WIFI, text, check email alot, play a couple of games and had some pretty long conversations on my cell and have never gone below 20% for the entire day. I don't get 4G in Phoenix AZNo trees were killed to send this message, but a large number of electrons were terribly inconvenienced.

mine is less than desired -- perhaps someone can give me some advice.
I charged overnight - 95% at 6am (tho i know 95 is normal)
in 19 minutes it dropped to 88% - here's what was going on:
rebooted to clear out apps running
the following are running-
settings - does this always run?
adv clock widget
com.adroid.sprintmenu - i have no idea what this is- under services it says 'HiddenPhoneService"
Market - an alarm app scheduled
music- went to music app and a song is paused- i see no 'stop' function!
screen brightness is set to auto and is presently at 0
screen timeout is 30 seconds
wifi is on - i'm in my home with wifi - plus i have an airave in house - 3g and 4g are not on
bluetooth is off
launched dolphin browser then read one article. checked directv listing. checked two email accounts. installed one app update. that's it - and it dropped to 88% in 19 minutes
yesterday i was out of the house (no 4g, used 3g only) BT off. Had minimal use (one call, read about 5 emails, some browsing - about-5 minutes worth, did a quick WHERE search) and dropped 44% in 4 hours.
i know i shouldn't force an app to close - but something doesn't' seem right. just in the 10 minutes i'm typing this (i'm slow) it dropped 4% and i wasn't even using it! wifi bars are full as i'm 2' from router!
any advice would be appreciated-
