    So How much can you eeke out of your phone and under what kind of usage? How many hours of talk time, and how many hours of browsing, music, etc???

    I tried searching online, but could not come up with a realistic base of information that would be honest.

    So starting one of our own, that would be handy to not only us, but others as well!

    I'll start -

    Phone -

    Motorola Razr Maxx ( Non HD )

    - Browsing - 2hrs a day
    - Calling - around 1 hours
    - Wifi - Around 6-10 hours when at home
    - 3G - Around 4-5 hours when traveling
    - Music - Rarely
    - Gaming - 45 mins to 1 hour a day
    - Texting - Heavily

    Life - 2-2.5 days easily. Sometimes even till the evening of the 3rd day. In the last 3 months that I have had this phone, I am yet to come across a time when I have gotten a battery low warning, or the phone powered down on me.

    2) Nokia 5800

    - Browsing - None
    - Calling - 3-4 hours a day
    - Wifi - Occasionally - 15-20 mins
    - 3G - Nope
    - Music - Rarely
    - Gaming - Nope
    - Texting - Moderate

    Life - 2 days max on full charge. Some days I need to charge it at the end of day 1 itself. But on the whole gets me 4-5 hrs of talk time which is pretty decent for my requirements.

    3) Nokia N8

    - Browsing - Moderately - 1-2 hours a day
    - Calling - 15-30 minutes a day
    - Wifi - when browsing
    - 3G - Occasionally around 1hr or so
    - Music - 10-30 minutes a day
    - Gaming - None
    - Imaging - Mostly - 30-50 snaps with flash
    - Texting - heavily

    Life - Would last me a full day on one charge, however would require a confirmed charge in the night. would not be possible generally to start the next day on 30-40% battery life.


    So whats your phone usage, and the life you get out of your battery like???

    This is my miserable Atrix:
    - Browsing - 1 hour a day (Wifi)
    - Calling - 45 minutes a day
    - 3G - None at all
    - Music - 1-2 hours a day
    - Gaming - 1 hour
    - Imaging - 10-15 snaps with flash
    - Texting - 10-15 a day

    Without portable heating mode this goes for around a day or day and half, with portable heating mode on this goes for around half a day.
