I charged it up during the day yesterday, but then hammered it syncing my emails, sms messages and other things.

So, last night was my first real charge. I took it off the charger at 6am this morning, and right now, at just a few minutes less than 5 hours, I'm at 83% with 70% use being cell standby.

I'm sticking with HSPA+ today, because I know that will drain the battery more than WiFi (at least that was the case on my Atrix) and I'm trying to get a feel for the battery life when away from WiFi.

Now, full disclosure, my phone has 6 email accounts setup for push. An Exchange account, two Gmail accounts and three Imap idle accounts using k9 mail. Still, I would say it's burning battery at a little higher rate than my Atrix with those same six push email accounts.

I'm a bit of a light user, but a little heavier than average given new phone.

5 Hours, 45%, screen on 2 hr, 12 min.

Interesting thing: I have a Pandora Widget on my screen, have not used it at all, and 13% of my power, and show son for 22 min.

Cell standby hogs the battery more than other phones like US One X with same SoC. I think kernel devs can work on this since this is not normal.

To get a good idea on battery life, everyone needs to show their screen on time as it should be the biggest drain.
