    Well I bought the phone yesterday and so far I am quite impressed.....

    Off the charger at 5 AM this morning, 13 hours later I have 63% battery left which is amazing next to my last phone the Samsung Captivate.

    During the course of the day I did the following and had the following settings....

    -2 email accounts set to sync every 30 minutes. sent about 15 emails.
    - Browsed the web for about an hour.
    - Sent about a dozen texts.
    - Took 4 photos.
    - Battery saver off.
    - Downloaded about 15 apps and snooped around the market for about an hour.
    - Brightness is on Medium and auto adjust.
    - 5 live tiles are pinned
    - Bluetooth for about 3 hours.
    - Screen time out at 30 seconds.
    - Location is off.
    - Turned off 4G cellular and turned on wifi for about 4 hours of the day.
    - Made 5 phone calls about 10 minutes per call.
