    My battery doesn't seem to last very long. I'm wondering how long is a normal charge? I downloaded juice defender but dont know how to use it as far as I dont know what settings I shoukdr choose. I always exit after each app and I usually always clear my task manager. I leave the screen turned down quite a bit. Just not sure whats draining my battery so fast.

    It get's better with time, at least a little. I haven't found Juice defender to be that much help for me. Currently, i'm at 69% with 5h 24m. Have not been on wifi at all as i'm at work. For me, the biggest drain seems to be when i'm in a poor LTE area (like my home). If your phone is new, i'm guessing that you are playing with it a lot also, that obviously doesn't help the battery. Lot's of threads here talking about battery life.

    If you just got a the phone I would've charged the phone completely for the first usage and depleted it to zero and recharge back to 100%. Check out one of the battery threads.

    i found juice defender and other apps similar has caused more problems than fix them. Normally i get about 12+ hours easily now that i turned off that sprint connections setting. Like others said, i would look at some of the battery threads for tips

    I am usually off charger from 6:30am-10pm with around 2 hours of screen time (give or take) and my battery is usually at 25-35% by the time I'm ready to plug it in at night (WiFi/GPS on). But I am also in an area where I do not have 3/4G and I am on WiFi for a majority of that time.

    That doesn't look that bad if u look at just how much you've had ur screen on in those 4 hours so your battery might be normal

    Yeah, that was my thought... I typically don't get much more than about 4.5 hours of screen time before I'm charging again.
    ... but then that also generally takes me about 36-40 hours to do, so it just seems like my battery lasts a long time.
