    Default Battery life after the update

    Let's get an idea about this post OTA battery issue.

    i feel like mine is better by a small amount. I had it off the charger about 18 hours yesterday, with almost 2 hours of use time and I had 63% battery remaining when i put it back on the charger last night. It does vary from day to day sometimes so I'll keep watching it to see if this is what i consistently see.

    Way worse than before. Battery drains twice as fast now, but only when the phone is on between all the random shutdowns and reboots. More reboots in the last 2 days than my Blackberry in 2 YEARS!!! This phone is quickly becoming a worthless piece of plastic.

    i noticed after the update that my battery life was draining twice as fast as before. i figured out that the new update did not work well with widgetsoid 2x. i deleted it and now the battery life is better then before the update. so i'm guessing that some apps may need to be deleted...

    Compared to MR1, it's much better. Compared to the leaked MR2 update that I've been running for a while, it's about the same. The original MR1 was opening rogue applications and draining my battery [on standby] within two hours at times. I'm so glad I haven't had to deal with that for a long time.

    My battery life was much better as a very heavy user getting 8hrs. Was a welcomed surprise. I only used to get 4hrs

    I have not noticed much of a change since the MR 2 OTA update. Any improvement appears to be relatively minor. I am now at 54% after about 8 hours on. Most of that time was just in standby, but I used the phone pretty intensively over the lunch hour for checking email, reading news articles on the web, and viewing one short video. I have kept brightness at 25% today. Overall the battery usage is tolerable for what I need.

    My battery life has also increased with he update. I'm able to get over 14 hours of use with pretty heavy texting and light surfing. I had about 75% battery at the end day. Also I shut off my data when not in use and that helps a lot

    I'm on the rooted OTA radio. Battery life is amazing so far.
