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??
i beeen using the $hit outta mine jus cuz im playin with it so much...
seem pretty good on battery for a full work day... until u turn on the wifi. that seem to cut it down immensely.
I run with the WiFi and Bluetooth off most of the time and with heavy use, I last all day....
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.

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.
