Default [Q] Nokia Lumia 710 - Battery Life

How is the real-life battery usage of the Lumia 710 like? I understand that the battery size is on the small size, but how long will it last on a typical work day?

If anyone is coming from a Nexus S, does it have better battery life?

When I first got my Lumia 710 the battery was horrible and would crap out in about 4 hrs. Now two weeks into ownership I'm getting about a day of use from the charge. Keep in mind that wifi and bluetooth are always on for me.

You mean like 24 hours of usage? Can you be a bit more specific?

I bought the 710 previois month. Yeah! The battery capacity is not too high but still for me it stretches upto 14-17 hours during my normal usage that includes:
-Always on EDGE connection.
-Mail sync time set at 30 minutes.
-40 mins to 1 hour surfing.
-20 to 30 mins calling.
-And some minutes of gaming, photo sessions, music etc.

My routine goes a little scheduled up so i can mention exact figures. :P
Each day one or the other person around me is amazed seeing this awesome OS. Love it.

Hope to run some tests as soon as it arrives. But usually mugen products are worth investing in.
let me know how that goes. Thanks!

1) Ecell's "Gold" Battery

2) 2200mah battery on ebay

3) Lastly there's always the trying-to-fit-BP4L-in...
