I play games. It kills it so fast. It seems that leaving them running even drains the battery.
Yesterday, I unplugged @ 5pm @ 100%, played about 30 minutes of games, and then went about my business. It was at 30% by 10pm, and dead at 6:30am.
The games yesterday was Logic Games and Penguin. Today I played some Spell It! and I'm seeing some rapid battery killing too. I unplugged at 12pm and I'm at 82% less than 2 hours later. I played maybe 20 minutes during that time. Place a word then go to the desktop.
Usually I use <5% an hour.
Has anyone noticed the need to actually close games?
I realize this is a "no duh" type of problem, but with the rate of battery drain, I'm not sure I'd be comfortable playing while not near an electrical outlet.

What do you mean by "turning it off"? As in powering it down? I don't power down. I don't use my phone to stream music; the speaker is terrible for that. Like I mentioned I'm constantly texting, emailing and surfing the web. Right now it says I have 77% remaining battery life which estimates 1 day 11 hours remaining and 17hrs since my last charge.

Been running battery tests on my Surround every night the past month, with various scenarios (for an article I am working on) and my phone (typical WP) will burn about 12-13% in 7.5 hours with Data, WiFi and a few background tasks running. That's without turning the phone on. WiFi only represents about 2% of that number. So that's 24-25% in a typical 15 hour day, or about 36% in 24 hours, again assuming the phone is not turned on. With the Titan's larger battery, that equates to about 24% in 24 hours. So if you are getting 2-5/3 days, that does not leave much room for uptime, or screen on/talk time.

My TITAN doesn't last very long either but I do play a lot of games. I keep telling myself to check how long it lasts without playing games but then I get bored on my train journey (I spend 2 hours on the train everyday) and I start playing again :P

You can always kill the game running in the background. I played Flying Tiles for a few minutes yesterday to check it out and it was listed in my background tasks as on today. I always check that section and it saves me some resources. Something to consider if it hasn't been mentioned already.

I used my phone now for 19 hours and have 39% of the battery left. I have been using the phone ALOT and played for maybe an hour or so.
I just got the phone and I think the battery is outstanding for a phone with this screen size. When I had my sensation the battery wasnt even half this good.
