I can't post usage stats because I never get them.

But I can go two days without charging. WiFi is off other than when I need it. Bluetooth is off other than when I'm in the car. Brightness is set about 40% and I leave auto brightness on.

U CAN RESET your USAGE SETTING AFTER U CHARGE IT SO THAT U CAN MORE ACCURATELY KNOW HOW MUCH USAGE U GET OUT OF your PHONE. IT ALSO AUTOMATICALLY RESETS AFTER A FULL CHARGE. IT GATHERS USAGE AND STANDY TIMES SINCE THE LAST FULL CHARGE.

I can go usually 2 days inbetween charges. I'm a little concerned about the battery for the first time since I got the phone. I'm a 1 day 16 hours standby and over 4 hours usage but I really only used the ipod for like an hour yesterday and the internet and google maps for like 10 minutes, and some texting and probably a call or two over the last 2 days. I'm at about 50%. It feels like i've barely used it. I have a feeling that if I take a 4 or 5 hour plane ride and get throug 2 movies, it'll be pretty drained after that.

I got down to about 25% battery last night, with like 9 1/2 hours of usage. That's not bad at all. ;)

I just have to keep reminding myself that this is a smart phone with a 3.5" screen.....the battery will NOT stay at full charge, all day, like my SLIVR did. lol

That is about what I get 9 to 10 of mostly Internet and Movie watching.

BTW the iPhone is a PDA. Smartphones don't have touchscreen, PDA's do.

umm, sorry? Smartphone is just a generic term that describes any phone with functions that mimic what a pda does (making it ALSO a pda). The touchscreen function is totally unrelated to whether or not a device can be called a smartphone!

If you're talking about Windows Mobile "Smartphone" edition, that is a totally different idea in that MS simply trademarked the name for a specific mobile software package that lacks touchscreen support. The term "smartphone" has been around far longer than the trademarked software, and WM Smartphone ONLY applies to a specific software solution - not an evolutionary branch of the telecom industry that includes Treos, HTC devices, BlackBerries, iPhones, etc.

What the heck are you talking about?

The Treo line of phones have a touchscreen and they're specifically labeled as a smartphone.

And isn't a smartphone just a phone with PDA capabilities?
There is a fine line between the 2, but Smartphones always have a keyboard on the front the device where a PDA doesn't.

6 hours of usage, 1 day 4 hours of standy. and my 20% just popped up... this seems to be somewhat of the average. what is everyone else getting if they let it go to the 20% mark?
