    I know the whole battery question with this device and other Android devices have been beaten to death.

    But, on average what would you say in one day, with average use should the Skyrocket's battery last (with LTE & without)?

    Curious; I'm testing to see how much I can get out of it over the next few days...

    Thanks

    I typically get about 17-19 hours on a charge woth moderate use (non LTE). I ODIN upgraded to the ICS leak and flashed RomRacers modified kernel and noticed a significant improvement over GB.

    It is going to vary greatly depending on how much you use it and what you use it for.

    However, since you asked, I have only had it a week, but I get around 13-15 hours. This is non-LTE, mostly connected to wifi, only using it occaisionally for email, texting, pandora, twitter, internet, etc.

    We have LTE here in Austin and I'm a fairly heavy user. With the regular battery I'm down to the 30 % mark by noon or 1pm. Sometimes I don't hit that point until 2 or 3 with a bit lighter use.

    Its irksome but manageable. Just don't plan any ling trips without charging options. And speaking of which, I take.bigger issue with the molasses slow.charging than the short battery life. I really.lime the phone tho.

    I should add that my phone typically comes off the charger in the morning at 530 am.

    I fully charged my device, and turned off WIFI, hence running from 4G\LTE.

    From 06:00 - 11:19 EST, and my battery is at 75%. But, I've had two phone calls, about five minutes or so each. I've also been running Twitter and Instagram quite a bit this morning, lastly using TapaTalk, as well...

    I think this is a pretty good percentage, no?

    Yes, I am getting similar results. I find no problem with the battery at all. I am @ close to 16 hours now...around 40%. I typically see 5-6 hours screen on time and that to me is good enough. The people I see whining about "5 hours" battery on this phone have an issue going on and don't realize it.

    I can usually make it from 6AM to about 10PM on a single charge. One thing that seems to help is JuiceDefender. When I go to bed, My battery is usually at 30%. I am still curious about the GN Extended battery but don't like the tight fit people are reporting.

    16 hours and 30% left is another positive battery report...extended battery would be fun to completely forget about battery forever.

    Those are good stats Skyrocketeer...

    I wonder if the poor reports of battery issues with Android on a whole, is slowly getting behind us now? I know with my iPhone 4 & 4S, I could get two days, easily with normal use.


    I just want a full 12-14 hours, and I'm getting that...

    I didn't get that much out of my 4s but may have been a little better than my SR...smaller screen should go longer though I figure.

    Just to confirm, is the HD version of the SkyRocket available for purchase?

    For the screenshot, I simply used the device itself; briefly press home then the power button...

    You would think we'd be seeing more press about this if it were happening this weekend...

    ...right, I don't see it on Samsung's website, or on AT&T either.

    I don't know if it is coming out on the 8th, but there is a Washington Post article where the tech reporter claims to have information from AT&T that it will be released on that day. I am wondering myself as I might just pull the trigger on it before my 30 day look back is up...if not, oh well...I love this Skyrocket anyways!

    My AT&T shop is NOT opened on Sunday (not a dealer, a real AT&T shop). So I doubt it would be released on that day...

    Does anyone know if the HD version has improvements other than a higher pixel count screen? It appears the GS3 won't happen anytime soon, so I wonder if this will be an Apple-approach, sort of making this phone a slightly improved version of the current SR. I sure hope it comes loaded with ICS!

    And speaking of ICS, has ATT rolled out the ICS update for the SR yet?
