Default Battery Performance-Bold on Orange Users

Please Login to Remove!

Guys, hows the battery life on them bolds... has anyone got the Nokia E71 for a comparison?

I never trust manufacturer's official figures since they are always skewed.

Cheers!

So far my BOLD has done well, I've been abusing it and the battery bar has moved less than a quarter. Much less than my N95 :P

How do you charge it? Via USB from the PC oder the normal charger?
and do you always empty the battery and do full 24h load?

Most phones will have a battery that last better than an N95. My N95 lasts about 1 day whereas my 8800 lasts about 6 days. Would be intersted to see how long the battery lasts on the Bold also.

I'm amazed that you get 6 days out of an 8800. I could pull that off with a 7230/7290 but the 8100, 8800, 8300 I get about 1.5 days out of, max and it's decreased a bit with each new model.

I will say that on weekends I usually charge it Friday night and it's still 3/4ths full on Sunday night, so clearly it's my usage during business days.

On BES, use it for about 1 hour of phone per day.

8800 is a beast, I used to get 3-4 days with mine. But N95 is 3G so it eats batteries, 8800 has no 3G so much much better.
