    Why do you walk around with a charger? Your battery life lasts for 16 hours, you sleep for 8 hours...

    16 hours on regular use doesn't sound that bad?

    16hrs is fantastic I could barely get 6hrs with my HTC EVO 4G(Original) and that's with extended batteries! When I go to New York I have to switch out batteries at least once a day and charge them up again it's really a hassle, so really hoping this phone will offer awesome battery life If i could get 16hrs just walking around, using AIM, twitter and Camera that would be awesome lol.

    From what I've read about these large 4G/LTE phones, 16 hours of battery is hardly a "problem". More like "top of the heap". I'll be more than happy if my Verizon version can do that with moderate browsing/app use.

    I always have my charger too! I am always on the go. My office, home, friends house and so on. So I can see why you would carry one. I do the same thing.

    Also what mightb e 16 hours for him may only be 10 hours for me! So it will vary. I know with the HTC One X I would get about a days worth of battery if medium use. Emails (3 accounts), SMS and light data use with the internet. So I might get a little better battery here but not to much more is my guess.

    Either way after a few charges I always see better life with the battery with the my past phones. (Look at the sig for the list!) So I am still excites to get my phone...Well when I finally get my phone! :P

    I only got about 8 or 9 hours on my first day, but that's because I was messing with it constantly!

    16 hours is great. I cant wait until they come out with the extended batteries. I use my phone heavily, and being a newbie to Android I probably wont know what Im doing, deaining the battery even faster. Lol. I always keep my charger on me, even for my iPad, yes. 10 hours of iPad is not enough for me. Lol. Been using this thing since 10:30 this morning. Its 2:30 now and Im at 54%. What can I say. I'm power hungry

    I got 17 hours of pretty moderate use which is great because the same amount of use would have killed my epic 4g touch in 6.

    my first android after using iphone for more than 3 years.

    i like it and i think its great.

    but my battery is questionable.

    sparing use, facebook, emails, words with friends and temple run occasionally. chat.

    i have unlimited 3g package so my 3g is ON all the time.

    i have the international version with quadcore.

    14hrs usage 11% battery left.

    screen usage is 4hr and 5min

    cell stand by 14 hours.

    is my battery fine?

    many thanks

    16 hours does sound great. I think I might have a problem with my battery then. I can only get about 6 hours of moderate use before needing a recharge. That's with the screen on dim and all of the other stuff off like wireless, gps, bluetooth off. Just last night I went to bed at 11pm with a nearly full battery and I accidentally left the gps on. At 4:30 am when I woke up the battery was in the yellow.

    Let me know if anyone thinks that is not normal and if I should get a replacement.

    6 hours sounds pretty bad, but check to make sure you're not having a runaway app. I use "Where's My Droid Power", it gives you a breakdown of what percentage of your battery is currently being used by each process. If your GPS is actually connected, it'll drain your battery in a hurry, but just having the toggle on does nothing other than allow the phone or an authorized app to actually turn it on and connect it. So that too could be a runaway app.

    If it isn't, however, and that's just normal usage, then yeah that's pretty bad, I'd at least see if you could get a replacement. Just make sure you test it out first.

    Thanks Cruiserdude. I keep an eye on any apps that are running and use a task killer often even though a lot of people say that doesn't do anything. I have never, ever got 16 hours of normal use. Definitely lucky to get 6. Guess I'll trudge on down to AT&T and see about a replacement.

    Thanks again!

    I'd die for 16 hours. I've had my device (International version) for over a week and I only get 7 - 8 hours with barely any use. That's with power saving on, GPS off, and mobile data off most of the day at work with wifi on but set to off while sleeping (unless connected to power) but bluetooth all the time as I use a headset:

    Well, I finally convinced AT&T that I needed a warranty replacement and the new phone I got definitely lasts longer. Not 16 hours but it is definitely is an improvement. Guess I had a lemon.

    Thanks for the advice,
