    Default Battery life best... when not in use. ;-)

    Thought I'd share this screen grab of today's battery use because I think this illustrates something obvious that I don't hear talked about too much.

    I spent most of the day not using the phone too much. At about 6pm I sat in a waiting room with horribly poor cell signal, using a data-needy app rather intensively. Look at the drop that occurred. I then left and haven't used it much since, and bingo - right back to miserly use.

    Doesn't prove anything, but just sharing. Amazing how thrifty this phone's sleep mode is!

    Thanks for sharing, this is a big concern for anyone looking at this phone (as I am). That's probably my biggest gripe with my GN, even when not using it it still sucks the battery.

    Nice. I had 26 hours on my battery with 63% left yesterday. Definitely killer standby time

    Remember, too, that it's not just that I was using it - I was using it in really abnormally low signal conditions. So it really was a double whammy.

    I posted this earlier but I had over 4 1/2 hours with the phone mostly in my pocket not being used and it had only dropped to 95%. They have done wonders with the radio and OS.

    Yea it gets awesome battery life when not being used but when you are using it, it sucks down some juice! Looking at your graph you lost 20% in 45 minutes. I am trying to talk myself into keeping the phone but just cant seem to get past the battery life, other than that it is an awesome phone. I may just be spoiled by the RazrMaxx;s life and the DNA may be right in line with other ""normal" phones but I am thinking that at this time the DNA is not for me. Sadly today may be my last day with mine.

    In a day looks like you will only be able to get 4 hrs screen time use in a 8-12 hr. day. If I could squeeze 1 more hr. in there I would feel a lot better about the phone. I have auto brightness on I may try turning that off and setting it low and see what that does???

    4 hours is a lot for any phone, let alone one with this screen.

    HTC has always had killer sleep software. I remember when I had a sensation, left it on my desk at work and didn't touch it for four hours (with emails and texts coming in, mind you) and only dropped 1%.

    I set brightness to low and ran a movie on netflix and lost 20% in 80 minutes so looks like if I know I am going to have a heavy days use the screen could be turned down and get another hr. out of it. really wish they would have just put a bigger battery in it. Guess they didn't want to get into a legal battle with Moto over using their "patented" larger battery.
