I just got mine today. I was driving around using it for work today. Left with 95%, had an hour and 13 mins SOT including watching a 30 min TV show in my car and navigating 3 deliveries in Gmaps and viewing the info in my browser multiple times, and also taking a 10 min call, and when I got home I was at 74% still 4 hours later with doing all of that. I'd say that's pretty good. That was stock 1.2.4i Color OS but I just flashed PA 4.4.2 and will see if any better.

Thanks, I went and ordered one yesterday.

Are gestures supported on PA4.4.2?

They do, but not exactly the same. If you do the V or O they open, but it wakes to the lockscreen and you have to swipe real quick then they're open right behind it. There's a music one too to skip tracks which is neat but I haven't tried yet.

I turned off "live weather" on the launcher (colorOS) and the double the normal drain rate was fixed for me. I'm at 72% after 9 hours and used to be down to 30% in late afternoon.
