    Default What's your definition of good battery life?

    I just want something to size my results up with, so here are my stats:

    47 SMS texts in, around 48 out
    1 MMS in
    Been off the charger since 8 40, about 2 40 now
    Ive been in low to no signal all day, from 9 35 until 12 15, then from 1 till 2 40
    Listened to around an hour of music
    I'm on EDGE, no 3G.

    My battery life is at 88%.
    Is that good?
    EDIT: Oops, and OS is .282

    Sounds about right. Do you have any other radio on like BlueTooth or WiFi? If so, that's pretty good.

    Better than the batter life I get from similar actions on my Storm- so I'd say yes!

    It lasts from 0500-about 2200 with juice to spare, then it gets charged overnight. good enough for me.

    Exactly the hours I am up and running. And then on the charger. Don't charge during the day, so that's my definition of good battery life. I really do not care what percentage of battery I'm at at any given time. I get through the day nicely.

    0700 - 0100 with days of around 100+ emails, Viigo, Twittering, plenty of browsing, 3G and Bluetooth on all day and connected to my car for around 90 mins.... and then it's gasping for juice but then that's what Bedside Mode was invented for.

    I can watch movie on my Bold continuosly in about 3.5 to 4 hrs while wifi and radio are on, the screen is at 70% and speaker is at 80%. Have anyone checked this yet? I haven't checked with music player yet. My phone last about 5.5 to 6hrs when only chatting on the phone over wifi, with screen brightness at 70% and I dont use auto dim backlight mode, never. Normally on daily usage, my phone battery lasts from 7am to about 10pm, with GPS, music, video, sms, voice call and chat all day long:">

    About 150 emails a day, 90 minutes of phone calls, 3G with 2-3 bars. No Bluetooth, no wifi, no SMS, No browsing (who has time), no application usage, no twitter, no facebook.

    6 hours without charge.

    I always keep another battery with me. I charge in the car on the way home and leave overnight to charge the other battery.

    Only once I saw the red mark on the empty battery sign on the screen. That was enough to purchase a couple of more batteries.

    I think anywhere between 3-5% drain per hour is pretty good on 3G. I can go about 17 hours with pretty heavy use including twitter (socialscope), facebook. Bbm and beejive IM connected. I keep wifi on always but only in use for about 5 hours while at home. 282 also.

    if you can get through the day, that should be considered good for yourself. If you get more then good for you. As long as my battery lasts the day I'm happy. I have squeezed 4 days out of it with minimal use and 2g only.

    I have about 3 or 4 apps running in the background, 30+ emails, sms, and phone calls. I'm up around 8am to 1 or 2 in the morning and still have about 15% of my battery left. Running 247 OS

    Now that I'm on .282 and switched my Bold to 2G, I finally get good battery life.

    To me good battery life means a full day regardless of how much I use the phone. My day is from 9am to about 4am and I I can finally do that without switching batteries.
