I'm a heavy user and I got this today with Darthstalker + Lean Kernel. Dying now at 4:30. Is this the best I can get with a stock battery? Using half brightness btw, streamed a soccer game, constantly texting, tweeting, Facebook, xda, listening to music, Internet browsing, etc. Thanks for any feedback I can get

About 4 hours is what I get too. I stream video with the screen on all day long. I also have 6 batteries and 2 external battery charger for that phone.

On my Note 2 with the same usage I get about 5+ hours.

Yeah I really want a note 2, no one is willing to trade even with a good amount of cash.

Have you cycled the battery yet. Did 3 fill charges and drain to about 20%? I had the same problem and nlw my drain is good. Different rom and kernel though

Re: Is this considered good battery life?
The battery life is actually pretty good already. I use all my phone pretty much the same way (streaming videos). My previous phones never even made it to the 4 hour mark.

Htc evo 4g = 2.5 hrs
Motorola photon = 3.4 hrs
Galaxy S2 = 3.2 hrs
iPhone 4s = 3.? hrs
Htc evo Lte = 3.5 hrs

i'd say it's "ok" battery life in that case.
