    Battery life

    I would like to get some information on battery life from all you Droid users out there.

    How long does your battery last and are you using it heavy or not??

    thanks

    First full day of use for me today. Bluetooth and wifi was off for the first half while I was at work. Since 2:30 I've been using pretty heavy with wifi ON and so far I'm at ~80% looking at the battery symbol.

    I will say this: Battery life is way better than S2 (I know that's not why you ask but just putting it out there )

    Battery life seems to be about on par with the S2. I suspect battery results in general will be worse than S2 because it is more user friendly. For example, browsing the web can take a heavy toll on battery life and because the web browser is fantastic on the Droid people will kill their battery. On my S2 all I generally used it for was emails, calls and BBM's so battery seemed to be better but in reality it is probably the same given equal conditions.

    < completely concur with this... The web browsing is sooo awesome that i find myself on that while sitting at my PC ... and yes HEAVY browsing puts a hurtin on the battery life.

    Also, to note.. application downloading/ installing should be done while on or near a charger(you cant NOT keep browsing and lookin through em or testing em out... Think PRINGLES commercials... )...
    This seems to be the fastest battery killer IMO.

    The reason I ask is so far battery life seems pretty piss poor on my eris. The first day it lasted 5 hours the second day a tad better. Granted I am using it a bit but.really no more than a normal smartphone. I read a post in a HTC forum saying HTC says it will take several days for the battery to.set in. Not a big believer in that but I guess we will see

    I have heard of OS's taking time to settle in but not batteries. Perhaps that could be the upside with 2.0 OS is better battery management. Just guessing there.
