Understandable - I wouldn't be too influenced by my experience because I'm fairly certain I have a defective battery or, less likely, phone (both are covered by warranty for a year). Verizon's response has been to update it, make sure it can hold a charge and to heavily push Advanced Task Killer. If you do any amount of reading on how the Android OS works, you'll find that not only are tasks killers redundant, but there are many that believe they use more battery power killing tasks that the OS would automatically close anyway. They have agreed to replace one or the other if using ATK does not completely solve the problem.
Anyway, as a result of this problem, prior to installing ATK, I am literally only getting half a day with medium to high usage. Like I said, though, based on everything I've read, that is not at all typical of this phone, which is why I believe something's not right. In spite of this rather large problem, I would still heavily recommend the phone because I find it hard to believe that this is typical...let me know if you have any other questions about it and I'll keep you updated on whether or not ATK solves the issue.
