    for my tour running .419 my battery life is the worst i have ever seen. I upgraded from .230 and it was bad but not nearly as bad as it is with .419. I had to go buy a car charger and bring my home charger out with me if i want my phone to work for the entire day.

    been running the .419/.411 hybrid on my tour and have the best battery life I've ever experienced. With moderate to heavy usage I've got 1.x% discharge/hour

    Running the .419 base and battery usage with very light browsing and texting is about 3.6% per hr. Off the charger since 8:27 this morning. Also have a 7 mb memory leak. Might try the .436 hybrid sometime this week. Still giving the OS time to settle.

    I don't notice much of a difference coming from .230. My battery life seems good still. Maybe your battery is dying on you?

    After a few days and a few battery pulls it seems to be doing OK, but not as good as .71 VZW

    Batterylife with calls is about 3.7% per hour. With $ostly data and less calls about 2.5%

    Memory leak is only .5 meg per day!

    nope, coming from .230. It was horrendous on .230, I take it off the charger around 8AM and do some texting and browsing and it would be in 10% between 6 and 7pm. Im still on 4 bars and Ive been texting and browsing heavily today.

    I upgraded from 4.7.0.57. My battery life on .419 was horrid the first day but is noticeably better now than it ever was on 4.7. On 4.7 I had to keep my phone charging most of the day at work or my battery would deplete rapidly as where I sit at work is marginal coverage. However, with .419 I was able to go the entire day one day this past week with my phone not being plugged in at work and left with 86% battery life left. That's with my phone being off the charger for 11 hours. I did not make any phone calls but did send/receive text messages, send/receive BBM's, receive emails, and check FB during the day. So I think 14% battery drain is phenomenal. Now I don't get that every day but not to far from it. I have noticed using standby makes a bigger difference than it did on 4.7.

    My battery life has also drastically improved with .419, was previously running 4.7. First couple days after upgrade was bad, but now my battery is best I've ever seen. Yesterday was still at 75% at midnight, not charged since 9 am with moderate usage and ubertwitter updating every 15min all day. I am very happy!

    Battery life is good, There may be a theme or an app that may cause it. I had a theme which ate up the battery life on the second day of having the leak but after deleting the theme, my battery was good once again

    Where/what program are you guys using to check discharge rates and memory leaks?

    Just installed the OS tonight and battery has been horrible. Just 10 mins of browsing pics of my sd card dropped it to 90%. I'll give a few to see if it works itself out.

    Give it a few days, mine was horrible immediately following the update, but a few days later it fixed itself and is better than ever

    I had an odd battery experience. Loaded the 50v8.0 hybrid (419/412) Friday night. Battery 100%. Woke up in the morning, it was 65%. Went to a short job--4 hours. It went below 10% before I got home. I had barely used the phone and it drained 90% in 12 to 14 hours. Trying to figure it out, I did a couple battery pulls. Now the battery life seems better than it ever was. Meterberry says about 1% per hour, including some phone usage and browser time. The last time I ran 4.7, it drained 2.4% per hour if I didn't use my Tour at all.

    same here.. first few days were pretty bad. but now it is amazing. much better than .230
    normally i charge during the evening and take it off the cradle when i go up to sleep. and on .230 even on standby i would lose about 6-7% overnight. now the past 2 nights it's usually off the cradle by around midnight and up til around noon the next day it's still 100%.

    Ditto for me too- originally the 419 straight was l;eaking at over 3% per hour. Over time - it has drastically improved- - last night only .2% per hour on standby mode!

    My 419 has shown me excellant battery life, even on BES I have gone 24 hours with no charging and then only been down to 50% battery.

    Me thinks radio reception and location has something to do with this and I wonder is the duel GSM/CDMA radio is the basis of the problem? People are all over the board with battery life.

    We need a something of a poll but with all the OS different flavors out there, I don't know how to create one, perhaps it's me but has the Verizon Tour users had more issues with battery life esp since 419?

    I'm still waiting for my battery life to get better. It has only been 4 days since I installed it, it does show a little bit improvement especially today but thats only because I didn't use it as much. How many quick pulls did you guys did before the battery got better? Roughly?
    01-11-10 06:21 PM

    2-3 days, maybe 3 or 4 hard-resets (physically pull the battery for 30 sec.)
