    Is it just me or do you guys only get about 2.5/3 hours of battery when you use 3rd party apps the whole time?

    Keep in mind that running 3rd party apps "the whole time" means your screen is always on, etc. Also, depending on what you're running, the app may be using a lot of CPU power.

    Exactly. Also, a lot these apps depend on wifi. About three hours sounds about right, especially if you have the device on high brightness.
