    how is your battery when Playing Apps, Some of them Really suck it dead
    worse than watching a movie (which previously was the biggest battery drainer)

    what do you think?

    it would be nice to have a % or Est. Time of battery remaining on top of just the 20% and 10% warnings...but then it would also be nice to have a longer battery life...I guess you just have to wait for good things to come

    I noticed when I was playing with the Apps for 20 minutes, the battery already drained to 75%.

    Some of the apps are CPU intensive so they will drain the power more quickly then the default iPhone/Touch apps.

    Is it just game apps, or ALL 3rd party apps that kill the battery?

    I played Super Monkey Ball for 30 minutes and my battery life was down to about 50%. :eek:

    With "Manual" pushes, do u just click on the mail app and u get the new emails w/o it informing you beforehand?
