What OS7 build sports the best battery life?
So I was one of the first people in line two days ago to get the 9900 from Rogers, I forget/don't have the specific device with my anymore, so I don't recall the OS build, but it was the same as whatever the stock OS is.
Long story, and I mean 'long' story short; the battery life did not perform well on that build at all. I tried it out for a day and was unimpressed, by 5pm the device had dropped to 20% after being pulled off a fresh charge at 10am. I had all my apps set to not fetch data automatically, brightness down, etc, etc.
The same night, my girlfriend picked up a 9900 from Virgin Mobile, her device was running 184.108.40.2061 (1355). Her Berry lasted the full day, when she got home at 11pm after leaving for work at 6am, she had a good 50% left. Our usage for the time period wasn't too different, give or take 20 emails.
I returned the Rogers 9900 and got a TELUS 9900 this morning, it's running 220.127.116.111 (1446) and it seems to be out-living the Rogers build by a small but noticeable amount.
So I put the question forth to the CrackBerry nation, from everyone's testing and experiences, what build has the best battery performance?
