    I updated my wife's phone to the 2.07 radio the other day to see how it ran. I noticed after she got home that the battery was only down to 80% after she got off. She only made a few calls and text that day.I'm rooted and love cm7 and bamf roms. Please tell me how your battery life has been on any of the new radios.

    I've documented improved battery life with the new radios, a nice surprise if you ask me.

    I've noticed a big change. I haven't charged for about 9 hours now, have been listening to music, checking emails, and I'm still at 80%. AND I've been at 4 bars for 3G all day at work (before I was lucky to have 2).

    Where's the download for the 2.07 radio and is it compatible with gingerbread roms?

    I think the 2.11 radios have better battery life than 2.07 radios... though I've read there may be some data issues with both. Personally I haven't been able to test the LTE side of either.

    Much better standby life with the most recent radio leak. Plus, unlike the last leak I don't get stuck on 1xRTT after I lost signal, which is whenever I ride an elevator.

    All of the people that say they have 8+ hours off charge are you heavy or moderate users and what settings are they using cause I can't get no more then 6 hours of light use with only 1 email account syncing every 4 hours

    I had 48 hrs with Wifi on a while ago... Facebook to every 4 hrs... No Sense Weather but I do have Beautiful Widget Weather updating every time I wake my device... also check under Settings > Accounts & sync > make sure no News, Stocks or Weather is sync'ing (at least that is what I have)... Settings > Display > Screen timeout 30 seconds, also Brightness down to around 33% (1/3 bar).

    What ROM do you have??? That can be another thing to consider.

    Here are my latest battery stats with the new radio, there is no doubt I'm getting better battery life after switching to this radio. I base a lot of my results on my awake screen time. Usually before I'd get 1 hour 15 minutes to 1 hour and 25 minutes on a full charge. This new radio I'm getting 2 hours of awake display time. I also see my phone signal is changing more on the new radio, I think this is where the savings is being seen at. Some how the 4g signal is being put asleep after the screen is turned off for a certain amount of time. I consider myself more towards a heavy user, I'm on my phone all day and I'm on 4g all day.

    I need to add, I didn't see the BIG change until I went to the 2.11 radio. Runs smooth for me with uber BAMF.

    This is where I pulled the 2.11 radio and you can also find 2.07 and 2.10:

    Concerned about battery life? Well, I suggest u guys get this AWESOME app called 2x battery from the market. It works wonders (I like it better than juice defender.) I'm a moderate to heavy user myself (Facebooking, kik messenger, go sms pro, all syncs on, trillian, tapatalk, powerAMP, field runners HD, screen on display for 30 mins, overclocked to 1.8 with wifi on, 99% of the time) and somehow, I still got managed to stretch out my extended battery a few times to 2 days while still on the mr2.5 radio.

    You can get 2 days from that battery just using Gingerites 3D ROM...no need for that app.

    I've updated to the latest radios, but still have the kernel that comes with Uber P3. We just got fired up locally on LTE, and my phone and my wife's phone suck the life out of the battery. Just sitting here typing this I can watch my battery go down. It was fine before LTE went live.

    Kernel suggestions?

    4g will eat a battery. The strong the signal the faster it goes. Sucks.
