I found I was able to about double my battery life by setting my brightness manually to about 10%. I've found this to be plenty of illumination in just about any situation unless I'm trying to view my phone outside.

A nice brightness widget I've found is called "Brightness Level."

Could it just be a case of "new gadget syndrome" ? The D2 is my sixth Android phone, and they all seem to suffer from this "bug" when I first get them.

I completely agree with this when i first got my phone it would die fairly quickly but just because I wouldn't ever put it down.

haha yeah cause you have to set everything up and download all your apps and such so its a huge battery drain there.

but back to the OT of course the screen/display uses the most amount of power on your phone and what you are seeing there is normal.

your battery life seems pretty good if after 7 hours you still have over 1/2 your battery

I gotta say, i couldn't disagree more.

Look at my signature, i've had quite a few Androids and so far they've all been horrible. But even though i'm gonna get the fascinate, I don't think i'll beat the battery life on the droid2. I've been VERY impressed with this phone's battery life. All of the Android phones i've had were lucky to get 18-24 hours of battery life with moderate use. The galaxy S's did better than the EVO, but the droid 2 has been the winner in this department.

On the EVO, i typically got 10-16 hours
On the GAlaxy S's, i was gettin 18-28 hours
On the Droid2 i've been getting 33-55 hours

All have the same 1400mh battery and i use them all the same way.
My phone is currently on 50 hours without plugging it in. (i have an app for that) and it was only at 90% when i unplugged it.

Display is always the biggest energy user by far on my Droid 2 and I have the brightness turned down to about 5% and I am no longer using a live wallpaper...I can't think of what else it could be?
