Hi there! I thought we needed one of these threads to get a clear image of how the phone performs IRL.
We'll all heard rather varying reports from the reviews, some good other disastrous...

1. Please post your impressions of the battery here.
2. Please be specific about how you've used it during the day.
3. Screenshots of the battery settings are most welcome.
4. Show image of screen-on time as well as the list of apps (thanks to Shadehh)
5. Brightness, is it auto? custom? If custom, %? (thanks to Shadehh)
5. 3g / WiFi on? If yes for how long? (thanks to Shadehh)
7. Haptic feedback? (thanks to Shadehh)

.... whatever else comes to mind.

TIP: best would be to simply download 'GSAM Battery Monitor' from the app store and make a screenshot and post the results (it's the most simple and fastest way ) - Shadehh

Thank you!
Swan dive!

I have to say out of all the battery threads with people who do not have the device yet bickering about pre release software this thread actually seems useful. Thanks OP. Hopefully you can get some more people to contribute.

yes please, we want to see numbers. real life usage is usually different from one another.

it would be a shame if this phone didn't last as long as the S3 since it has the same size of battery coupled with a more efficient chipset and display.
