This phone uses zero battery overnight. I also left tunein radio running two different nights(fell asleep), it used hardly anything. I'm very surprised since I was a little concerned having an internal battery vs the first EVO. I'm now thinking that having so few charging cycles compared to the old EVO, the battery's life cycle will be extended. I used to charge my old EVO quite often thus the battery was pretty toast after one year.

I managed to kill the battery one night. I listen to audiobooks before I got to sleep. One night I forget to put the timer on and it must have played all night till the battery ran out. It was low to begin with. Had a mild heart attack, went downstairs and plugged the phone in and breathed a sigh of relief when it started charging.

I typically end a heavy use day with 15-40% depending on where I go and how heavy the use is. Once the shine wears off Im sure that number will grow as I wont be playing with the phone as much.

wow... I cant imagine going more than one day... but i guess i would consider myself a poweruser...on the way to work I stream audio/video podcasts... am on the phone off and on at work... using to stream on the way home as well... sometimes watch videos in my break...
so what would be best for battery performance? plug it in when possible or uncharge as much as possible and plug it in than...? Because right now i plug it in wherever I can... without that i am not sure if i would get a day usuage out of it... put the screen brightness on 50% only when i watch movies in the car i bump it up to 100% .. since otherwise i cant see it very good... (glare / brightness around me)

I'm holding final off judgement on the battery until they finish the tower upgrades here. Signal strength has always been the bane of my batteries which isn't fully the fault of the phones.

That said, it lasts significantly longer than my Evo 3D which had to be charged three times per day with normal use.

What's your screen on time and what is your brightness set to?

3hrs 16 minutes, brightness set to low (which is normal for me)

this is w/ light usage for me. 48 hours of normal usage is much closer to accurate life. I have intentionally picked up my tablet a few times to do the same task, but not very extreme.

this is more/less a one time cycle to see what i could get on light usage to see how long it will last.



EDIT: just died after running it down w/ temple run. 3hrs 30 mins of on screen time.

I've left TuneinRadio running overnight ( a few times) without it consuming hardly any battery life. I do not have Siriusxm, can you or do you leave the screen on? if so what brightness?

Battery is slower about charging. Fully charged overnight, in standby mode all day expect 20-25 min. of checking emails. Battery went down to 75%. Been charging now for over 2hrs, not fully charged. . My Shift seemed to stay charged longer & shorter to charge.
Not so sure the battery life is as good as they say.
