    Beware of what you ask for, you might just get it?

    So all these new nifty features and we end up with 4 hours of talk time!!!?? My god, the new iPhone gets more than that (an hour I know but still more). And that 4 hours is most likely less than that since the estimated times are never right.

    is this a huge step backwards?

    when I tested the phone I had no problems with it lasting me all day and that was with heavy beta testing

    I haven't made any calls yet today on my 800w but I'm a heavy sms and email user. It's just before noon and my battery is already down to 40%!!! I doubt I'll make it through the work day

    Don't forget, it takes a few charges sometimes to get the battery up to full capacity...

    Trust me, every time Seidio launches a battery it's the same discussion which after a week usually goes away. Still, 1150 might be tight (but not as tight as the Touch Diamond's 900mah )

    I would die with just 900mah!!! Down to 36% now. Time to get the charger out.

    I'd also hesitate to say: new phone syndrome

    Whenever I get a new WM device (especially with my job here), I tend to turn it on/off and well...play with the phone a lot. Especially within the first few days.

    Not sure if anyone here is doing that or just treating it like their old device, but I know that has a perceived effect on battery life ;-)

    I haven't really had time to play with it yet... just using it the way I used my 755 for the most part. Down to 24%!!! I just plugged it in.

    Yes, I do it too when i got the moto q9c from sprint I killed the extended battery in half a day, after a few days when I wasn't so excited anymore, the regular slim battery would last me 2 days.
