First charge and usage was; A few texts, 10-20 min of video, fair amount of browsing, installing lots of apps, tweaking and changing everything about, GPS, camera etc. and brightness was at 70-85% brightness for about 1-2 hours and dropped to 50% for the rest of the time, however, I didn't have my SIM in for the first hour of use (testing the mobile first to make sure it worked ok), wifi was on constantly as well.

Second charge and usage was; the same as above but a fair bit more browsing was done and a few games (angry birds and ROM emulators) and brightness was at 50% the entire time, plus this time the SIM was in for the entire time.

really good battery life, after a day of calls, bit of gaming, couple camera shots, with sync on, fb etc, battery is at 50% - 60% ,

I reckon i could get 2 days easy if i was economical, but 1 day easy with heavy use.

The screen will always have the highest usage so really battery stats are somewhat useless without sharing screen on time..

I highly, highly doubt that. Beats, correct me if I'm wrong, is just an "improvement" of the audio frequencies. An automagical DSP.

Without particularly trying to save power my battery is lasting 36 hours or so.

By far the biggest drain is the screen, currently at 65% of power drawn. Wifi is second with 7%. Considering that wifi has been on more or less constantly for the period this is pretty impressive.

I could probably push battery life to 2 days if I replaced live wallpaper with black background and reduced screen brightness generally. It's hard to know what else to do though.

There has to be some processing going on somewhere, that was my logic. Happy to stand corrected tho.

I got question regarding to battery and charging...

How it would affect battery, if I would charge it every day while driving 1h (it wont get fully charged if empty). Would it affect it badly in time?

i get about down to 30-35% at the end of the day with light web use, gmail, maybe a short phone call, and a bit of GPRS hunting when the signal is not that good. I just installed the power manager to see if there is any real use of it...

Mate...I've always disputed the battery andusic thing..your guaranteed to run out faster..I know it has that function and beats etc..but I pods or mp3 players do a much better job in every department and don't waste your phone battery. I'm getting a day and a half and I'm a fairly heavy user..I play the odd game. Text a lot to my wife lol..and surf the web. Its all about what your using...
One plus side..I use free beats earphones on my iPod and it sounds fing amazing.

Do the cases and general heat from keeping the phone in the pocket have any affect on the battery life?
