Yes my battery life is with LTE in Atlanta.

No partial wakelocks. I wonder what could be causing such a big discrepancy between your battery life and mine...

It's just HSPA+, but even then, with my Epic Touch 4G on Sprint, the phone could last at most 20 hours with 4G on, so this is a step in the right direction. Even more impressive since HSPA+ is just as fast as Sprint's 4G.

Static wallpaper, brightness set fairly low, wifi off when LTE available, non android processes/apps set to sync when opened or every 6 hours.

Not rooted yet. Does the AT&T bloatware cause a lot of battery drain?

Note users on LTE, please chime in if you're seeing better/worse battery life.
Well I am LTE in Atlanta as well and based on your screen time of 1.5 hours at 48% your doing pretty fair. The ATT crap not only EATS the battery. Root and remove the Bloatware. If you look at my posts I am getting about 50% better life than you in the same area. I am a heavy user during the week and I can tell you, you must ROOT and DE-BLOAT.

If a problem can be solved there is no use worrying about it. If it can't be solved, worrying will do no good.

Don't complain unless you are willing to offer a solution and participate in the solution. If not then SHUTUP!!!

I'm getting pretty decent battery life for a large smart phone. I have been trying to kill the battery every night so that I can recharge from a low battery state.(I do this with all my smart phones for the first few cycles). Here's what I'm getting.
I have to say this is by far the best battery life I have seen in a smart phone.

I have no idea how can you guys keep it up for more than 12hrs.... I got mine since Sunday and in the past 2 or 3 days the most I could get was 12 hrs... I barely make it through the day and I cant imagine the battery life will increase that much after "breaking in"

CPU spy is showing my phone is in deep sleep... and I just root it last night to freeze all the bloatware... dunno what else I can do to keep it up beside not using it :P

This isnt too good. Display was off for 7 straight hours!

Just rooted, made some profiles on SetCPU, and froze crapware. I'll update tomorrow with another graph.

This is my battery life. 21 hours unplugged, and made it to just over 5 hours screen on time when my battery hit 1%. Totally stock, auto-brightness, streamed music over Bluetooth, browsed the web, watched videos, and used wifi. Also in a LTE area (Atlanta)
