    Interesting wording.... "better battery issues" ... lol, you mean less issues with battery life!

    But yeah, today is my first full day with the update too, however it is also my first full day with this phone, I got a new one last night since the old one had issues.

    Two hours after taking it off the touchstone this morning I'm at 92%

    No phone calls. Some web browsing. I'll be able to tell when I get to work next week.

    I've been averaging about 20% left after working 8am - 5pm. I stream pandora alot during the day at work.

    My battery is draining slightly faster. I've been keeping track of my battery each day, and usually by noon I have around 85% left (my usage is about the same everyday). Right now with the 1.0.3 update I have 78% left. I wonder if its because of the more frequent google refreshes? They should just let us control that because I'd rather keep my better battery life....

    battery life is probably improved because of this part of the update

    Much improved battery life for me. I was one of those having major battery issues. Maybe 4 hours of charge with everything turned off/down, draining @ 1% a minute if I was actually using the thing. I was carrying an expensive paperweight basically. Last night, after the update, went roughly 7-8 hours with moderate internet browsing and many SMSs and still had 50% battery or so when I came home. I've been seeing many people complaining about this update being of no/little value... well for me this update was HUGE in making the Pre a usable phone.

    I get 100% when I leave for work at 9 am, by 2 pm at 20% (before 1.0.3). I'll know more Monday when I get back to work. This was before shutting down IM, GPS and bluetooth

    Mine is as bad as always. I took it off this morning, sent 3 texts, took a shower, went to lunch, at lunch sent 10 or so more texts and maybe 5 min of phone calls. When I got home I was at 74%. Bad coverage is really a killer I guess.

    my phones battery is still doing aweful, but I think it's due to the horrible signal at my house.

    I put my phone on airplane mode last evening, and 12 hours later, the battery only dropped 4%! That is excellent battery life.

    I put my phone back to normal mode (wifi and BT on, but no GPS) and is has steadily been dropping 5% per hour, with absolutely no use at all. That does not seem very good to me.

    I made a 5 minute phone call, and the battery dropped 4%!!

    I am actually afraid to use the phone to do anything, because I might need to make a call later, and I must save the battery.

    Took off Touchstone at 9:15am. It's now 12:25pm and I'm at 64%. Installed today's app updates (all of them), one short phone call, and some minimal browsing and Tweed work.

    So, no improvement here. In fact, compared to some other tests, might even be a bit of a reduction in life...
