    Not that good in my opinion, I usually get around 9h, of mostly browsing over wifi, and 1 day standby.

    Anywhere from 5-7 hours is normal. You're fine.

    Yep! Your numbers look good! I just noticed my battery has been draining quickly the past few days. Narrowed it down to the Weather Channel app.

    Can anyone give me some insight on my battery life? Here's some info:
    1. Bluetooth was on but not being used.
    2. Wifi was on but not being used.
    3. I was streaming Pandora over 3G for 3-4 hours.
    4. Watched 2 or 3 music videos on Vevo.
    5. Played a game for about 15 minutes.
    6. I never had more than 3 bars of 3G coverage (The 3G is very new and still in testing).

    Is my battery healthy? I've always been paranoid about it because I never have very good luck with laptop batteries.

    I would say that your battery is normal based on what you are running. If you killed the wifi and bluetooth when they were not being used it would help though.

    That's definitely normal for what you were doing. My advice is to turn off the battery indicator percentage. Trust me, you'll find that you're actually using the phone and not being OCD about it.

    You’re fine. See all the other battery life threads for more information.

    Best advice I've seen in a while. Just enjoy the phone. I don't think anyone has actually determined what actually counts as "usage". It depends entirely on what you are doing.

    For me, I've gone as long at 2 days standby and 11 hours of usage to 10 hours of standby and 5 hours of usage. Recently, I've determined just turning off the number is the best thing.

    I have to agree with this as well. I refuse to turn on the battery percentage because it drives me nuts. The first step to recovery is admitting you have a problem:D

    This is definitely true, when you keep checking stuff like that it really will start to take away from it lol

    Truer words have never been spoken. I get totally OCD (which I usually don't suffer from) when I see the battery percentage ticking down. When it's off, I tend to just use and enjoy the phone and not worry about minimizing use just to keep the numbers up. On a regular work day or weekend day, I've NEVER run out of juice. Not even close (airplane & business travel not included).
