    8am - off charger (wifi on, bluetooth on, gmail at 5 min. intervals, gmail chat on, gps on)

    11am- after 45 min. of calls, 25 min. web browsing, 15 min. texting. 76% battery

    1pm - (wifi off, the rest the same), mainly just looking around the app store, going into a few programs, sending and receiving about 25 emails. 60%

    3pm - (settings are the same as at 1pm) 25 min of talking, 11 text messages, 30 min browsing internet. 44%

    So far it's been the same as my BB storm.

    8:30am - 100%
    4:13pm - 53%

    Been using data plenty today (web / e-mail / youtube)-- more than on my last phone. Much better than it was doing on Saturday.

    I wonder what kind of stretch people will go through to keep this thing juiced up, from the reports so far, looks fairly comparable to other smartphones with the same features.

    Today is my first real day of moderate use. Showing it to people, having one of my kids play with it for a short while. Checking email regularly.

    I start work at 6:30 it is now 12pm noon pst, I am at 83%, how are you guys doing?

    Edit: Sorry I should have posted:
    Bluetooth off
    Wifi On
    Gmail push on (about 15 emails already)
    GPS off
    Googletalk AIM: off
    Brightness: Factory default
    Please make note of signal strength as well. Lower strength, and the phone tries harder to connect

    I agree. Just looking at the people that are getting good battery life they all have it on push. I just changed mine.. time will tell.

I tested this this yesterday, afternoon than this morning only using email everything else of and over a 3 hour period used 4% less battery with Gmail set to push..

    go figure

    Fully charged at 11:30am. Had to plug it back in today at 4:00pm because it was down to 30% with light usage (5 phone calls for 45 minutes, 5 minutes of internet, 1 photo taken). Not good.

    I can't really complain too much:

    100% at 6:40 AM - Wifi OFF, Pushing email/calendars from Gmail and Outlook

    During the day I showed it off to my friends, took a few pictures, browsed online for about 2 hours total. Talked for about 30 minutes.

    17% left at 7:36 pm. I'm still at school, and I'm hoping to not really use it and hopefully it lasts until 10:00 when I go home.

    Just asking, as the phone can multi task, do you have a lot of cards open, running the battery down

    Off the charger at 6:30am
    Wifi = Off
    Bluetooth = Off
    GPS = Asks Permission
    Email = Yahoo as they come
    IM = Logged out

    55% @ 7:20pm with testing of the Sprint Navigation this morning, 20 or so text messages, and a half hour of internet browsing.

    I too am pleased after being timid about the battery performance from Saturday's pick up.

    Dude or dudette, why r u here? If you look at her posts she is dissing the Pre for everything. If you are that unhappy, find a new phone and move on. While constructive criticism is widely respected, you are a troll.

    I have to Mac's and I love them but I have no tolerance for AFB's, or girls.

    Seems as if some have worse issues than others, just like every other phone out there ... My old old htc touch had horrid battery issues, where as a friend of mine with the same phone on the verizon network had a great battery ... i went through 4 phones before i got the Centro...same thing with that phone but i had an amazing battery, in the Centro forums people had massive issues with the battery .. i guess i got the lucky batch ...

    So agreed if your battery is worse than that of others listed take it back ...
    So far so good with mine, 12+hrs of medium usage and it was a 10% ...
    The onine guide does say top of the battery whenever you can for best results (ex:leave it on the charger overnight) ... which is what i did for my centro and it worked! Trying to get there with the Pre but it wouldnt have lasted from 430pm at 10% ..

    Its now 830pm at 100% i guess i'll just top it off and see what happens tomorrow ...
