Default battery life on this sucker!

Please Login to Remove!

Hey does anyone know the actual time usage on this bad boy? I'm deciding between BOLD & STORM. Lighting up the huge screen might kill the battery a lot faster, right?
I mean, I have my curve still... I sent/received 150 mails/sms' and about an hour of calls, listened to about an hour and a half of music and I'm at 35% battery. I don't think the STORM will last that long. but can anyone shed some light?

Thx

The claim 6 hours of talk time, 15 days of standby. we'll see, I don't think anyone is going to have better info right now.

Yes, those are the statistics, but not calling and not leaving it in standby is also very important. I know it depends if you're listening to music or watching a movie or just chatting/writing emails. That number also is important. I mean, the iphone in standby mode lasts a while, but if you're writing emails all day ... well, my BF has an iphone 3g with 3g off to save battery, and he gets ... emm... 1/2 a day. shame... That's why i'm interested in the STORMS number.

Verizons Rev A doesn't eat up as much of the battery life as AT&T's 3G. Battery life on the Storm is much better than that of the Bold. It's more comparable to the Curve.

I don't know about that. And since the device isn't out yet, it would be presumptuous to state that.
