    Settings > About phone > Battery > Battery use. Mine shows 86% of total usage is caused by the screen. So turning it down helps.

    On the home screen hit menu. Settings. Scroll down to about phone they you should see battery and in there click on what is using battery.

    Screen is definitely the biggest drain. Odd, on my Inc it was only 7-10%.

    Now it's 40-80% depending on usage. I know the screen is bigger but not THAT much.

    it doesn't make sense that the display is using that much power, I have an app where I set the screen brightness to 0 and it still uses more than 60%

    Anyone have suggestions as to how to reduce the amount percentage wise of battery use coming from the display? I have my brightness to about half but is there another suggestion?

    Also, do live wallpapers use up more of your battery? I don't have one equipped but I thought about it but want to make sure it won't affect my battery...

    I think it's kind of strange... I've been using my phone quite a lot (screen turned on & surfing websites and such) with wifi on... made 2 phone calls (1 was about 15 minutes long, the other was maybe 5 minutes)

    Display: 45%
    Voice Calls: 35%

    I find the tremendous drain from my voice calls as curious to say the least. That said, I'm getting good battery life overall.

    Voice has always killed the battery faster on any phone I used.
