    I charged the battery from Sunday night until Monday morning and there are still 7 bars on the right upper side of the screen. To tell the truth, I am an extra light user , since phone is in sleep mode most of the time (I got 3 sms) and I had about 25 mins of talk. Last week I used it from Monday mornig until Friday evening although I used GPS (about 20 mins), made photos (4-5), listened to radio and music (about 1 hour all together).
    At the weekend I updated the firmware, played a lot with games, installed garmin and tested it and I had to charge the battery 2 times at the weekend.

    I am a moderate user as well. Occasionally using wifi, messenger, not alot of talktime used, ALOT of smses though, and enjoy transferring via cable and trying out new apps.

    The battery lasts a decent 2 days. around 48hrs. However, after i adjusted the network operator settings to GSM, it lasted for 3 days! (The first day the battery kept at 7bars level!)

    I guess different people have different settings on the phone.

    I personally suggest these too:

    1) Remember to exit unused apps (except Home and Menu).
    2) Display brightness to the lowest.
    3) Network operator to GSM (if that is possible in your country).
    4) Uncheck the Sensor for Rotate menu screen (i find it quite irritating sometimes and wasteful).

    depending on usage. I have 3.5G on all the time its getting my email every hour and i browse now and then and when i go to college by train i listen to music. Mostly get around 2 to 3 days out of it.

    and brightness at lowest will make the screen unusable when outside so i left it at medium.

    I would say I'm a moderate user.. I do text/surf alot, Listen to music only on transport and when I'm in bed.. It definitely lasts me about 1.5 days for me.. I'm ok with that!!

    I wish it would charge faster though.. Mine takes about 2 hours to charge!! thats a long time to wait *I hope this charging period is normal and its not just me*

    24-36hrs, use wifi a lot, listen to a lot of podcasts and internet radio. Do not play games or use silly apps.

    Since I got my display changed due to colour bug my battery has been lasting longer. Last charge lasted for 2 and a half days with a lot of phone calls (a little over 1,5hours total) about 100sms sent/received, some music, installing new programs and surfing the web (wifi) a little.

    GPS-navigation – 4-4.5 hours
    Video playback – 3 hours 20 minuts (H.264 in speakerphone mode)
    WEB-surfing (EDGE) – 4 hours
    Wi-Fi (non-stop data upload) – 5 hours
    Music (in earphones) – 34 hours
    Radio – 25.5 hours
    Games – 5 hours

    Anybody getting anywhere near to this?
    Yeah I do... That's great...

    what about distance from a cell site?
    does it count as a battery drainer?

    also heat
    units inside our pockets have more heat than those on belt clips

    too much shaking?
    (yeah a bit far off)
    but since movement is sense by the accelerometer (w/c uses batt to get info from it)

    on my part i have these:

    1. Our house is near a cell site, 100% signal always
    2. dont use auto rotation
    3. always pocket my 5800
    4. use wifi 30min-1 hr, automatic config Enabled
    5. music, everytime i take morning shower, bout 7-9 minutes, full volume.
    6. SMS-MMS, average use
    7. not much calls in and out.
    8. my son plays some games, 30 mins max
    9. GSM setting only
    10. no background apps running open
    11. screen brightness 1 notch higher from the middle

    1.5 to 2 days batt life

    ... forgot to add - Firmware version?
    ... still using ver. 11

    Well my battery life 4 me is about 2 days... thats in hard use, in "take it easy" usemode is about 4 days...

    My tricks: (i read it in another blog)

    1. I never turn it off the phone! 4 charge the battery too... (of course if u need hit off!)
    2. Disconect from the provider (airplane mode) at night.
    3. Screen brigthness is in "average" position. Because the sun is very strong here.

    If i turn off the 3.5G mode never found another signal... GSM dosn't work 4 me i don`t know why.
    Edit: Now it work... GSM is "on".

    Maybe the best solution can i suggest 4 me is... buy another battery! Right?
