The battery's not great. On a normal day mine lasts from the morning till about 5 or 6. That's with sending roughly 50 texts, an hour and a bit of talk, push sync on and a bit of tweeting.
Today mine was fully charged in the morning. Made about half an hour of calls, 40 texts, no internet use except push sync. battery is down to 31%. I'd say I'm a heavy user so if you're not it should easily last a full day.
Thanks for that valuable info mate.... and what can I say but 'OUCH' !
That's relatively light usage compared to the usage I highlighted in my first post.
For 2 hours solid usage (everything actively streaming GPS, HSDPA + Bluetooth) on a battery twice the capacity of the Hero my battery will deplete by 50%. The Hero will be dead in 2 hours under those conditions, the standard battery on the tytn ii would die in 90 minutes until eventually the heavy usage got the better of it to the point that it would die in 50-60minutes hence my upgrade to a couple of 2800mah batteries !
Anyone know if any extended batteries or external mobile power options are available for the z(h)ero
I do have to agree with you that this is a desirable phone but like the tytn ii it's going to take me a good couple of months to get perfect and I really ask myself if it's worth the effort.
