Default Tell us about the battery

As you all know HTC Butterfly S have one of the biggest batteries in the market (for a smartphone) .
So i wish that you tell us about your experience with the battery and what you usually do to keep it alive for a longer time .

Here is a screenshot i've just taken after extensive use .
( to save the battery juice i've set the brightness to low and used static wallpapers )

XDA is about developing and is for developers. Any user that recognizes that will gain the most benefit from this site


 
This is and always will be a site for developers, pure and simple. Without them we are nothing, without them there would be no reason for XDA Developers to exist; we should never ever forget that. Without them this place would not be called XDA-Developers but something else, e.g Mobile Phone User Support Services For Ungrateful Nerds.

I get only about 16 hours worth...push mail on...3G...don't play music or videos extensively...voice calls about 30-45 mins in the day. What am I missing? Why am I not able to get it to last beyond a day?

i recommend using a wakelock app to see what drains your battery .
