I agree. You need to realize that although the screenshots that have been posted show great battery life, the numbers for usage are still only in percentages and in reality could be a percentage of only 5 minutes(no offense to those who posted theirs). Also, light moderate and heavy usage are also terms that have no real meaning, as they are defined differently for each user.
If I were to see a screenshot of the actual minutes each was used for(just click on each) I might be a bit more impressed. I am happy if I can make it from 6am to about 8 or 9 at night.

If you have poor battery life and have never replaced the battery in your fascinate keep in mind that li-on batteries degrade with time. As the phone is 2 or so years old it is possible that your battery has significantly degraded from its original capacity.

So if you haven't replaced your battery do yourself a favor and buy an epic 4g touch battery and enjoy +300 mah from even a pristine stock battery.

Yeah, I just got my Anker x2 plus wall charger for like 25 bucks on amazon, plus the Prime trial gave me free 2-day shipping.

I guess my usage would be considered heavy. Between 7am and 4pm I'm on airplane as my building gets zero reception and saps my battery searching for a signal. I might use my phone for 20min outside but that's about it. After work I tend to spend a lot of time on Tapatalk forums, facebook, angry birds, Monopoly, Words/Scramble WF and just dicking around with my screen on. Usually my battery life is solid (95%+) all day and then by 10/11pm it's around 30%, but then I have to charge it as it's my main alarm clock. So I don't get good opportunities to just let it die and fully charge, especially since the battery screen won't turn on while the phone is powered down and charging. I think that effects my calibration and whatnot.

I just had my previous phone replaced with this one two weeks ago because the data broke. But I think I will still invest in a new battery. Seems like a pretty good buy

We are starting to look into the mp3 issue. I don't think it's anything wee did so I think it is AOKP add a whole so bare with us. As for the boot audio. I forgot to add a boot audio mp3 to the system/media for mesmerize and showcase. So if you guys just rename any mp3 boot_audio.mp3 then you will get bout sounds and the option to turn them off.

Does that epic 4g touch battery ever go on sale? It's pretty expensive on Amazon at the moment.

I wouldn't call 20 bucks for 2 batteries + a charger expensive....

They aren't AA batteries.
