    I've had a great improvement on .450. I used to be able to watch my battery life go down while using .337. I hope it continues to stay that way.

    I just installed the 450 build, but will track my battery life over the next few days and post back.

    Battery drain in .448 and .450 both has much higher compare to .337. SMS has been much improved with shortcut keys working for it.

    In this build the battery lasted me 2 days on moderate use and on previous builds it would barely last a day with me listening to music. Big ups to .450 for the battery management!

    The battery life is fine with .450...

    UNTIL YOU USE GPS...
    A 30 minute run using RoadRunnerGPS drained my battery from 80% to 6%. That was not the case with 337 (where it only had a 10% drain).

    Today I unplugged at 3:07 (long story!) and at 10:45 I'm at 81%. Haven't used the holster yet today, either. Pretty light usage (43 min.) so far, but I like what I'm seeing.

    According to BBmeter battery drain is very similar for me on .450 as it was on .337 with the same usage..

    Last two days with .450, battery was definitely draining faster. Maybe I was on the web more than I thought over the weekend. So far today it seems to be more back to normal (no better than .337, but no worse), but I haven't been on it much, either. We'll see how it looks later tonight.

    After roughly 11 hours of sitting idle after being fully charged, my battery is now at 94%. This is noticeably better than what I had on .337. After idleing for 11-12 hours on it, the battery life would drop roughly 9-10%.

    very odd.... it's mixed with good and bad reports...

    I personally am getting worse battery drain on .450 than I did on .337.... I have not changed my useage habbits either. Over a 10 hr work day sitting idle in my desk drawer and a one hour conversation on the phone this evening, I went from 99+ charge this morning to 64%. I usually would be at about 88% or so after such usage..... on a side note, It seems like it charges back up faster though.

    Definite increase for me. 3-4 Hours talk with lots (150-200) emails, texts, BBM's. .337 just got me through the (most times). Now usually have 18-21% at bed time. So for me a very welcome improvement.

    Geez, from 8:30am until midnight I'm down to 38%. That included an hour or so of music and constant web browsing/google chat/texting with very little afterward. It's hard to judge if it's any better than 337 but I can say that while I was doing those things I was very conscious of the battery draining whereas I never worried about it on the previous build.
