Better than it was
Same as before
Worse than before
OS. 126.96.36.199, whats your battery life
I understand that the Storm seems to all work a little differently for each of us and our personal usage varies BUT
Have you seen the battery life on this new OS.
I am on my phone all day, I send maybe 30-40 emails (at least), Too BBM's to count, Twitter, Surf BBOS, Run my Theme biz, and make phone calls...yes I am glued to the phone.
Running OS 151 I would have to change to my backup battery around 4pm each day.
Since the leak it seems that my battery life has gotten better, I haven't changed my usage habits one bit, if anything I use it more. So here is my stat line
Every monring my phone turns on at 6am (auto on) I do not charge throughout the day.
Sunday - 9 pm - 43% left
Monday - 9 pm - 36% left
Tuesday - 9 pm - 48% left
Wednesday - 9 pm - 58% left
Interesting, maybe useless but I'm loving it.
I voted for same as before....I always had to and still charge my phone midday with as I am one of constant heavy users
I voted worse, not because battery life was actually worse, but because I had so many random reboots which sucked the life out of my battery.
I recently switched back to 151 w/ BBCs Hybrid because my battery would be dead by 3pm after a 6 am start. It did not originally start out like that. Battery life was superb at 1st.
I voted better... To start the battery life was horrible! It only lasted from 7am to noon. I tried complete battery drains followed by complete charges so it would "learn" the battery. Nothing worked until I removed WeatherBug. As soon as that was gone I can go about 2 days without charging it! Hope this helps someone else.

I agree 1000%!!! It's the best for me out of all that I have tried.

I voted better... with the previous OS, by 11 PM, I would be under 10% (Since I also use my Storm as my alarm, its been great) but now with 5.0 running on my Storm, the battery is above 20% So I try to increase the number of battery pulls (found Leave it On does not leave apps on) and try drain the battery more.
Overall, I love the longer battery life, but I fear once I get a job I might need the 1600mH battery, or not.
