    Better Battery life with .605

    I have noticed a marked improvement in battery life since the update to 4.5.605. I went from barely getting 12 hours to a charge to now getting close to 16 hours with the same usage habits.

    In Battery Monitor Widget Pro, I noticed that when the phone is idle, the power usage drops much more slowly. What used to be a somewhat consistent, rather steep slope is now much more flat while the phone is idle with steeper slopes when I am using it.

    Anyone else notice this?

    My phone is not rooted.

    I was going to post the same thing. I am usually at 70% by 3:30 PM (after 7:00 AM off charge). During work I don't surf the web or use my phone too much with the exception of 30 minutes of calls and about 10-15 texts. Also, I have poor signal at my work and that drains the battery as well. I am at 80% and I used my phone quite a bit more today. Also, yesterday I used my phone for texts, checking some scores, a few calls and about 1 hour of mp3 listening and I stayed at 80% until about 8:30 PM!!! I do have the slightly extended battery (model 6HX?). At my home I get very strong signal and that helps quite a bit... It is amazing, Gosh even my older RAZR with a small screen would not get this kind of battery life.

    I have the BH5X battery which came with my phone when I bought it the first of the year. On froyo I was able to get a full day out of the phone, only charging it at night. The first two OTA releases of gingerbread dropped that to around 10 hours with no change in usage forcing me to recharge during the day as well as at night. Now, it seems I am back to the original battery life under froyo which is a VERY good thing. Now I don't charge over night, but toss it in the dock at work just after lunch & remove it once it reaches full charge.

    Just thought I would update. I can now go for more than 24hrs between charges. Last week, I was throwing it on the charger at 2-3PM and pulling it off around 4:30. The % battery remaining has been creeping up though which I thought was weird. What used to be 15-20% remaining after ~24hrs use turned into 50% by the time I was ready to put it on the charger at work. Over the last few days I have been seeing how far I can stretch it and it is consistently in the 30+hr range between charges now. Again, no real change in usage. If anything, lately I have been taking more calls/texts.

    I haven't noticed any background static in either the default app, Pandora, or Google Music. I primarily use Google Music though.
