    The battery was much better for me after the ics update. Go for it.

    According to Google Play, this is an app for rooted devices. Is this true?

    I bought it and tried it out. Waste of money. Didn't do a dang thing. There is no magic sauce on battery. If that app gave us 24 hours of battery Google would already own that company.

    I hear ya on that I just thought it would be better than what I am getting, but I guess I cannot complain because the bat last throughout most the day while I am at work. It drains really fast on my days off go figure.

    I really believe the magic size in a battery is 3000Mah. Anything less is a constant maintenance program. I exert too much energy trying to save energy.

    Sorry for late reply guys. You need to be rooted!!! You must allow it super user access.. when your phone is asleep it uses 1/4 of the processor. When you get a CA or text it uses the full processor. There is 2 Apps 1 for dual core 1 for quad core get the correct one. You can find it online for free too

    For me. If I work for 8 hours and my phone it on in my pocket I will probly lose 1% per hour. Which is amazing. Highly recommend.

    It doesn't do that for me. I bought it based on your comment but haven't noticed any benefit.

    I took a different approach, my stock battery is 1850mAh, bought a 2380mAh slim battery and I'm very happy with my investment. I now get between 12 to 15 hours of real usage plus I have a spare.

    I read that there is going to be a official JB release,and my phone came with ICS 4.0.4 and I afraid that it may screw up the great battery life I have now.

    I only have to charge the phone every 2 days. I use on a average of 12 hours a day, shutting down at night. The last cycle I got 27.5 hours out of 1 charge! I use the battery until it gets to 15%, and low battery notice tells you to plug charger in .

    I don't know if this makes a diffence or not, but at this point I'm not updating the phone for some added features to lose battery life after all that I read!

    So this battery fits in the standard case?

    I'm not sure how 27+ hours is possible unless you don't use the phone at all. I have got 14 hours max.

    Like I said, I average about 12 hours a day mostly on .
    I have the $30 plan with 100 talk min., so I use Skype for calls, check e- mails, check forums,
    an the rest of time the phone is on standby. I guess if your on the internet all day battery
    Would be less.

    Thanks for clarification. That makes sense.
