How are you guys finding the battery on a day to day basis? Like what do you have left when you get home after work?

Battery is fine, if you're a heavy data user you might find you need a top up...if you're just using normal 3G daily usage with WiFi off unless you need it....like I was today...then as of now I still have 51% left and today started at 6:30am this morning.

Cheers

Get this phone it rocks.

Here's a tip for the other guys that have theirs; if you want to actually make use of the 720p screen, go into display and gestures and change font size to small. It definitely improves the experience in gmail, messages and probably a lot more I havent tested yet

Great tip, thank you.

Battery life is fine, 20 hours since last charge, used it all day, wifi, 3G, over two hours screen time, 25% battery left.

Awesome phone, can't wait till that video bit rate upgrade is stable, only thing I'd change really. Quite enjoying Sense 4, but I'm sure I'll root and switch to a ROM which absolutely flies on this thing.

Riptide GP and Shadowgun THD are fantastic if anyone wants to play games on this thing. Got an MHL cable arriving tomorrow, looking forward to plugging in to my TV. I've always kinda wanted a gaming console, but now there is absolutely no need to get one.

For the TelecomTech guys I suggest you do any updates AFTER you finish the blog run, or at the very end if you want to report any "hacks" and other ROMs usage. That's because if things stop working then you won't be able to complete the blog posts...

Wow, memory management is *much* better now. Scrolling in widgets and apps is excellent, sense homescreen scrolling nice and snappy, especially just after exiting games. Where previously sense would lag for a few seconds after exiting a memory intensive app, now it's perfect as soon as you exit back home. GREAT. Looks like Sense is using about 100MB less RAM than in the last version.

Signal strength seems a bit better with the new radio (though I didn't take a reading before so this is non scientific).

Updated GPU drivers as well by the looks of it, apparently zen pinball runs fine with 1.28, very low FPS on my 1.26.something

CdTDroiD: Einfo has them in stock over the shore for $895 inc now in both colors


I see they also have the One S, but it is only $45 cheaper. Not sure if that is enough of a price differential for no NFC, half the storage and a smaller display.
