    That standby time must be with the radio and screen off!

    Me too, they must have two versions of the Thunderbolt!! Kidding, but I am getting sick of charging mine twice a day.

    After a few days of charging and disipating the battery, I am making it through an entire day on one charge with moderate use, texting, word feud, browsing, phone, and facebooking.

    This is what worried me. The puny 1400 mAh battery allows you only moderate usage and nowhere near the claims of over 5 hours of actual usage. Makes the Incredible look good.

    Every time I have ever heard of a smartphone being in standby meant the phone was physically on but not actively being used. So since I had my phone on for almost 17 hours in standby and still was at 20 percent battery I really don't understand why people come here claiming they had phone in standby as well but only 1-2 hours of battery life.

    STANDBY = Screen off but phone turned on and should have at least 6-10+ hours of total battery life depending on how many accts you have synced and how many calls, email, text you receive that could possibly turn screen on from those services.

    I get we all want battery life but there is no reason to come here and make false claims about how your phone dies when not even being used after 47 minutes. At least be more accurate because we all here have the device for the most part and those lies are so easy to pick out from the truth.

    HTC and Verizon claim the phone gets 330 HOURS of standby. They claim it should last for almost TWO WEEKS on standby. And you're telling us here you're impressed with 17 hours?

    Sorry buddy, but if the screen is off and you have two email accounts to sync every 15 minutes your phone should last several DAYS in standby.

    How about the usage numbers -- 378 minutes? That's over 6 hours. I'd be lucky to get 3 hours of 4G browsing.

    No question. VerizonWireless hoped this phone would result in thousands of extended batteries being purchased. Not going to happen. I'm guessing they will get punished by the returns.

    Those stand by hours were a low estimate.

    The actual stand by hours were closer to 774....... Feb 14th (rumored release date) to March 17th (actual release date)

    I think the battery is great. I get about 14 hours of HEAVY use. If you use WiFi when you can, and put the screen at 25% while indoors it makes all the difference on the world.

    I have the same settings and I only get 2 1/2hrs of heavy and 7hrs of standby. And yes. I did all the tweaks as well.

    Ah, the voice of reason. I am a fairly normal business user. Auto adjust screen,calls, heavy email, texting, fair amount of browsing (4g and Wifi) and small amount of time playing a game or two. Since properly conditioning the battery I am getting 12-14 hours which is all one can expect from a smartphone with this kind of screen and power. In fact battery life is not much different than my Inc and much better than friends with EVOs. But then again I took the time to properly work the settings and condition the battery.

    I agree, I can maybe get 5 hrs out of mine.

    Thinking the same thing but still undecided. The main benefit of this phone to me was the 4G. If I can't use 4G and make it through at LEAST a work day, this is pretty pointless in my eyes. People shouldn't have to be doing all sorts of setting changes, battery bumps, etc just to get this phone to work. I was really looking forward to this phone for a long time and waited through all these delays because I figured they would at least want to release a high-quality product as their first 4G device. Maybe all the battery rumors were true about delaying the release but they obviously have not gotten this fixed completely and like many people have said, there's only so much you can do with a battery this size and a 4G network running. This and the light leaks are really making it hard for me to decide whether to keep this thing or not...
