Now we have XT out in the wild, which phones will provide the best battery life? What sort of experiences have the early testers had so far with battery life? I would expect it to be much better than Voda 3G 2100 network.

I'm really keen to get some view of battery life for the Nokia E75 or E71.

The only thing that varies between VF and XT is that one's a 850Mhz network and the other is 2100MHz. In an perfect world battery life would be identical since the main determining factor as to how long the battery lasts is the signal strength of the network.

You could argue that because of the potential higher -dB indoors due to the better propogation of 850MHz signals Xt may give slightly better battery life but that's purely hypothetical. You can get different reults now with all phones depending on where you're located and the signal strength.
