    Mine has been fine, much better than my iPhone. I went standby for four hours yesterday and my battery displayed 100% too. My problem is charging time..

    I've noticed that apps that update in the background can cause massive battery drain. So I disabled all the apps I don't absolutely need and now my battery life is amazing. 19 hours unplugged and I'm at 72%.

    Battery life has been pretty good. Heavy use during my first full day...I would say a total of 12 hours of use for total discharge. This does not include downtime, i.e., phone locked, screen not on.

    With my usual usage habits, a full charge will probably last a couple of days.

    It is actually an appropriate response. There is already a thread on this. If people just keep making new threads it makes it more difficult to find helpful information.
