    ^I agree with above. I'm on .545 coming from an iPhone a little over a month ago. On the iPhone I was perpetually charging (in the car, at home, etc.) just to keep the thing alive. On my 9700 I could get at least 4 days out of it and I send about 250/300 SMS a day, have berryweather running, two email accounts, and other minimal stuff. With 3G on always and WiFi on when I know it's available I'm really impressed. I've taken to charging my phone overnight anyway as it's a habit and I love bedside mode!

    My day starts around 7am and ends usually at 11pm. By this time my batt level is around 75%. On days when i dont use the berry that much i end up at 85%. I use it mostly for sms/bbm/emails/google talk/weahter check and the occational web surfing.

    I use meterberry i can see an hour discharge of about 1.3 percentage per hour.

    with minor web surfing, that sounds about right.... web surfing (form what I've noticed on my own 9700) is what kills the battery in no time...

    I have quite amazing battery life compared to my previous 8900. 12 hours on, with quite frequent sms/bbm, a few calls, playing some games while travelling, and I still have 80%. Definitely no complaints here!

    From 6 am till 4:50 (right now) I have 80% battery life. As long as it lasts me till I go to bed I'm satisfied

    Here is the ONLY answer you need to pay attention to.

    I HAVE NO IDEA how long my battery lasts and I am not at all interested in finding out.

    Li-Ion batteries are meant to be topped of as often as possible. Ignore every post
    in this thread by people who claim they can go a day or more as those same
    people will be back complaining about how the battery does not seem to last as
    long anymore.

    It doesn't last as long because lack of understanding of battery technology made
    them do foolish things, and the one biggest Li-Ion killer. Running the battery down is
    the fastest way to kill it, plain and simple.
