    my battery went from 86% to 18% in the hour it took for me to unplug it from my work computer where it was charging to get the a restaurant with no apps running. I restarted the phone before charging it, and I ride a motorcycle so i didn't use anything on the phone while riding. The battery just plain blows on my phone. Maybe it is a bad battery that I got tho...maybe the reviewer had the same version that I got.

    Heck every phone I every had has had that battery problem on occasion. If it isn't consistent I chalk it up to a fluke.

    moreover though i would prefer if i could set it to a timer, to do it automatically, because it is supposed to be a smartphone afterall
    Phone icon and then there is a button for data connection

    No way it has to be that bad. Without use, my battery drain ~15% over 8 hours. I leave apps open all the time but phone and data are the only things working in the background.

    You truly have a battery problem or connection problem. I can work out at the gym and then spend a full day at work and still get home with 18% or more battery life. I have awful signal reception at work, but I still get better battery life than you mention.

    Anandtech disagrees with your source.

    Just a quick question - does wifi kill your battery faster? Because my wifi is on 24/7

    Lisa, I have been told it does but I can't tell for sure cuz I don't have mine turned on that often.

    I'm on a limited data plan, so I thought keeping wifi on and data turned off will help me from going over.
    Either way, battery life isn't an issue for me.

    Thank you!

    See I have unlimited data and text (and 900 minutes a month which is usually way more than I need now since we have free mobile to mobile on Sprint).

    My understanding is that if you have a wifi signal it doesn't, but if you don't have a wifi signal, it will.

    I'm with Bell, and their plans are ridiculous. I think I pay around $60 a month, and I'm limited in everything except texting. It was really annoying having unlimited brower, texting, calling and everything on my old phone, then switching to this one and being limited, AND having to pay more.

    I doubt that your Pre lasts that long under the conditions suggested in the original post.

    It's about pushing the phone to its limit, which I highly doubt you do, non-stop, for 15 hours.
    * Stuck patches? Partial erase worked for me.
    * Stuck virtual keyboard? Partial erase AND folder deletion worked for me.

    I agree with your assessment, but I think that such a test as what's described in the initial post and useless for most users. It's not often that an actual user will be on constant GPS and YouTube video. If I'm using my GPS to travel, I'm not also watching YouTube. Additionally, if I'm on a long trip with GPS, I plug in my car adapter.

    It's very unlikely that I'll be using GPS, but let a second person use my Pre for videos. I might listen to music or listen to an audio book or Podcast, but streaming videos would be out.

    I stopped carring about battery life on smartphones since my first WinMo device. Waiting for the flux compacitor.

    If you use the iPhone the same way you use your Pre, that new iPhone 3G will be dead in less then 2 hours (I'm generous when I say 2hrs). I know this from my own experience. The Pre lasts longer then 3hrs... while used to broadcast music, check emails, text and email almost non-stop. I know it because I do this every single day... then I decide is time to actually work on some of my projects. When the battery hits less then 10%, I stack it on a stone.

    I want to see an iPhone do the same.
