Yes its normal & that happens bcoz your data connection remains on which eats battery, if you want to increase battery life you can use free APNdroid widget with this you can switch ON/Off the data connection. Else use juice defender or tasker they both can save battery life to quite an extent. Both have trial version.

In the night I switch to airplane mode & keep my data connection off hence I get 1.5 day of battery usage sometimes even more, if I don't surf the web then I get full 2 days of battery usage.

Charge time 4hours but I have heard that HTC charger can charge faster & gives longer battery life due to current difference. I will try this weekend borrowing it from a friend.

I think I am the first one to Vote. My usage is mainly calls. 1-2 hours of calling. 1 hour at XDA using XDA application with 3g on. 1-2 hours of playing around with the Phone and gallery etc. But with heavy usage, battery life is just enough to come back home and charge after 8 PM. My battery goes down by 3-4% after over night standby not 20% as mentioned in the above post.

This is more dependent on the tower distance near your home & its data signal strength, there are people for whom night time usage is only 1-2% ideal.

Charging Time : 4 hrs (rt its way too long)

Usage without much gprs usage i get around 2 days.
Usage with gprs usage of about 3o mins surfing, email sync, lil chat & fb i barely get thru the day and am at arnd 15-30% by 7pm.

I guess mine's pretty bad eh ?

Overnight i tend to lose about 7%

Well, I have a moderate usage of almost all features (call,mail,camera,music,net radio,browsing,etc.) and it lasts for about 1.5 days.

Yea, full charge time is pretty long if you do not switch off your phone while charging.

Battery life in the long run depends if you have maintained a few golden tips for new batteries:

After unboxing, fully charge the battery in switched off condition. For the first 10-15 charge-discharge cycles, let the battery fully drain and the phone to automatically shut off. Then charge fully and switch on the phone. Avoid charging while phone is on or has quite a bit of charge.

I had a Nokia N91 and following above steps, the battery gave promising backup even after 4 years! Sadly, I lost the phone in Jan this year and bought the i9003.

DEAD CHARGER

Recently my i9003 bundled charger got fked up somehow... it just stopped charging the phone; had a few languishing days charging off the data cable off my laptop. Took to nearest service centre with a photocopy of the bill and it was instantly changed with a similar 700MA charger but of different shape.

Oh, I seemed to find a friend who is the tech there and jumped the long queue! LOL

I agree with the OP about seriously long time to charge! I had an X10 earlier and that used to fully charge in 2.5 hrs, but this takes really long. To just reach 100 from 90 it takes like about an hour!
