    i looked in the battery guide and i did everything, turned off apps i wont use/gps/bt/wifi/etc probably anything vital to battery life

    at 1030 at night i unplugged it from my charger at 95% and woke at 7 20 with 93%, that sound possible? im not sure maybe it was 97% but it most certainly was not 100%

    i used it heavily the first day and after 7 hours it was at yellow battery life, today im going to work and i plan on using a realistic moderate use, checking fb here n there, web browsing here n there, playing apps during break

    whats defined as moderate to reviewers? i dont know maybe what im going to be doing is classified as light

    also the screen is pretty low i think it came like that but if not its prob im guessing 30%? maybe 25? down there..

    So, are you upset about losing 2% over the course of 8 hours? I'm not exactly seeing a problem with that...

    Yeah, it will rarely read "100%" on a full battery, at least on my previous devices. That is normal and is somewhat of a safety net for the battery. I agree that 2 to 3 percent after 7 hours of essentially sitting there is pretty good.
    My Infuse battery life is really bad, but my last phone, the HTC EVO 3D, had really good life. Not sure what it is with the Infuse but I cannot go a partial day, even with absolute minimal use, without going to red on the battery. Part of it, I believe, is the way the Infuse polls for email on my Exchange account (push mode). We'll see how the new one compares.
    Additionally, it may take a day or two of charge/discharge to get to the optimal battery life although I'm not sure it is as significant as it used to be even a couple years ago.

    It takes forever. Wondering if there is a better charger..or if the battery just has to be very slowly charged.

    yea, i had mine charging for like 30 mins and it didn't charge that much.

    It seems like it needs to charge a lot to get the battery to move at all.

    i was just happy n seeing if all the tweaking helped, weird how it doesnt say 100% though maybe i lost 7 % instead of 2-4% but still 1% per hour is pretty standard? basically what i should of asked

    9 hours into the day and still at 90%.
    I haven't made a ton of calls but have been pushing buttons, downloading apps, and playing with the internet more than normal.

    Mine is actually at 64% but I'm very happy with it so far. I've sent quite a few messages today, so those clearly don't take much of a toll on it.

    is mine broken? When I got it yesterday I couldn't exactly go home right away so I did play with it a little bit while running around stores and watching the football game at my brothers house.

    Got it home charged it all night was at 7% when It started charging.

    Unplugged it at 1pm EST because yes that is when I wokeup and around 4:30-5pm it starts asking for a charge and beeping?

    I mean I admit I customized with it played around with kiesair for like 5min downloaded apps made like 3 calls but it's asking to be charged already and is @ 4%..........??!?

    Is this normal.... I've never been a power user my iPhone 3G which I had previously would last be like 1 to almost 2 days......

    A few things about battery life.

    1) Yes, it seems to take a long time to charge. Not sure why that is, or if there's a way to get it to charge faster. It was the same way on the Infuse, so maybe it's a Samsung thing.

    2) The screenshots you guys are posting is only indicative of the percentage of what's being used. So if Android OS is using 82% that just means that it's using 82% of whatever battery has been used. So if you have 40% battery life left, and Android OS is using 82%, then that means it used 82% of the 60% that has been used.

    3) Battery life will vary based on a TON of factors. Location, signal strength, usage, and screen brightness are just a few.


    As we've only had the phone for a day it's hard to get an accurate gauge on how the battery life will be. I can say (and I haven't rooted yet) that it seems like it will be really good. I used my phone the way it's meant to be, I don't turn off Mobile Network Connection or anything like that. I let my accounts sync regularly, I play games, send texts, and read a lot. I consider my usage to be moderate-heavy.

    I had pretty stellar battery life, IMO.

    Phone was off the charger at 6:45 AM PST. Usage consisted of:

    25 Min (approx) of calls
    20 - 25 min of web browsing.
    4 Apps downloaded and played with for 5 - 10 minutes each
    15 or so photos taken (most with flash)
    A few IM's
    12 - 15 texts throughout the day.
    4 Speedtests
    2 30MB+ files downloaded (over HSPA+)
    And showing the phone off to 2 people for a few minutes each.

    By 4:30 PM I still had 46% battery left. I'm pretty happy with that.

    Do you guys have Power Saving Mode ON or something? I'm guessing it's off by default because I didn't touch it.....

    Dunno it's only day 1 but it wasn't good for me
