    I picked mine up at about 1 pm with about 40-50% charge from the store. I played with it almost constantly and it just died at around 4:45. I am putting the full charge on it now to see what i get.

    Better stay quiet about that. It would suck to get mugged over a battery.

    can you say 2 hours... with nothing running.. if you were lucky. power management is one of the last things tweaked and its about as massaged as it can get on this device. Battery should have been at least 1700-1800 mah unit..

    Yea I agree I don't understand why HTC does this to their devices not to get off topic any news on the bionic

    I just don't get why HTC can't provide a competitively specced battery. They just need to design the phone for it.

    lol.. if you think the battery is bad now.. Ya should have seen it a couple of months ago. OTA will help as will the batteries getting conditioned. as for the 4g toggle that will be coming...

    The TBolt was more than a month late, no Skype and the battery life is around 6 hours.

    I think I'll wait for the next android based device.

    This essentially is going to be how the spectators waiting to hear about the phone will feel about when considering this device.

    If the phone was made to do a specific thing and you can't take advantage of that, then something is wrong... Cutting radio's and changing brightness shouldn't be something that needs to be done.

    Also, when we pull out our sim cards, we get NO CONNECTION, (no 3G, no 4G, no nothing) so what are you talking about?
    No **** thats whats supposed to happen
    Do you actually know how a sim card works?

    I saw this over on androidforums, and thought I would share. I don't know if it works or not, but it might help with the battery life a little:

    I am worried about the battery after reading this site, I need my phone to work a full day 10 hrs, I will not have access to a charger until I get home and even if I did I would not want the phone on the charger and not on my person. What good is that..... My Blackberry stays charged for 24 hours all we are asking is 10 hours.

    Actually, CDMA based phones don't typically use a SIM card, so it's counter intuitive to think that pulling a SIM would render the CDMA radio inoperable. I suggest you think about what you're saying before you speak to someone else with such arrogance.

    I cant complain.... my battery life is right about 6-7 hrs with 20-30% left.... I cant complain.... i work in an office and can charge when i want and i also have a charger at home and in the car.... dont understand why you would need battery life to last 24hrs.... i guess if it lasted a consistent 10-12 hrs that would be great but im not worried. All this with 4g on all day.

    I can't make a phone upgrade till next yr anyway. But also if the data is being increased in price I will gladly stay with what I have. I am tired of the pricing increasing on everything. I have the unlimited for 29.99 and I think that is good enough.

    this sounds good...sounds like you could easily get 12-14 hours out of it with light to moderate usage.

    These threads are pointless on launch day anyways, everyone is using their new phone NONSTOP right now checking it all out.

    In a few days to a week when you have cycled the battery 5 or more times and you arent glued to it nonstop you will see better battery life.
