Admittedly, there are many people complaining about battery life for the particular phone that I got recently, but I think there’s also a psychological aspect to it that I have to get over. Since with my new phone I have a percentage instead of a vague meter with three little bars on it. I’ve gotten a bit less paranoid about when it goes down, but the insecure part of me still goes nuts if I see the percentage go down one point while I’m using the phone. On standby the battery doesn’t seem to go down much at all and I’ve gone a full day without recharging it, but I think with moderate use it has to be charged once a day at least.
