    This is real battery life after mild use, I did turn wifi off when I wasn't using it. I didn't use the phone much today but it's nice to have battery left at 4 am if I need it.

    Not sure what my battery will be like yet (only been a few days) but I am just like you. I sync everything under the sun all the time. It's part of the "awesome" factor in my book. It's worth some battery headaches.

    Would you mind listing out your top 5 to 10 games? I am getting close to making a final decision on keeping the phone, at which point I plan on dumping some money in the ecosystem (aka, games and the like).

    I assume Arcane Tower Def is a, well, tower defense game...your addiction to it mean its a solid game? webOS NEVER got a good tower defense game or a good scorched earth game, drove me batty.

    IMO the best tower defense game is Geo Defense. Holy crap is that game awesome! I just got Arcane's TD, can't wait to spend more time with it.

    A few other great games:
    - Wordament (a Boggle clone that you play live against hundreds of people, it's free IIRC)
    - Tentacles (don't even know how to describe this one, just play the demo)
    - Rocket Riot (a fast-paced "twin stick shooter" type game. . . works amazingly well with touchscreen controls)
    - Full House Poker
    - Angry Birds & Plants vs. Zombies (duh)
    - Sudoku (it's a free, Xbox Live-enabled version from MS. Includes power-ups, achievements, and a totally superfluous XP system)

    Arcane is probly ther BEST td so far with the map editor , but its freaking hard ( if u find a way to kill the shamans past lvl 60 on endless mode .. let me know LOL!!! i been testing Arcane for a while now and ALOT of new features are comming :P . + they have a new game in the making GONA BE EPIC ( i cant talk about it i promised hehe )

    my top 10 games

    - Ilomilo ( epic puzzle game )

    -Arcane TD + world editor ( world editor is free so get it!! (its a dumb down version of the SC2 or Warcraft 3 map editor .)

    -Armor Valley ( DOTA style game very fun ) send units and enem,y sends units , and u have a hero to stop them .. controls are hard to get use to but its fun.

    - byebyeBrain ( fun zombie TD ) new updates should help when they come out

    -The Harvest ( closes thing to a RPG we have so far , more of a action advanture game )

    - I dig it ( fun advanture game )

    - Astro flare ( game im testing in beta , but u can apply for it in the Forum you might be able to get it )

    - the list goes on and on.. alot of nice games deppending what you want. and alote more comming after mango :) , i also have all the games you said witch are good :)

    I push google, yahoo, msn and pop3. I also watch about 20 minutes of youtube, wp central app constantly, gadgets app, imilio, pitfall, and spades game about 20 mins. 30 minutes of podcast. But the most important thing was the switch to Mango 7.5. Before that about 4:30 it asked me to recharge. Last night my internet went out so I watched netflix for an hour so it tapped out at 1:20 am.
