    Just post what phone you have and any kind of modifications you have made to it, i.e. rooting, flashing roms, jailbreaking, overclocking...


    right now im running a mytouch 4g rooted with royalginger 2.1, overclocked 1.3GHz (smartass gov), gingerbread leaked radio, i get 12-24 hours battery life easily with moderate to heavy use.

    what about everyone else...

    i run a atrix and im loving the dual cores. its running on the crappy custom moto 2.2 froyo but ive read that the 2.3 gingerbread is coming real soon and its gonna be beast for the atrix. one of the things is "Battery life is substantially improved; with GMail and Exchange syncing, battery easily lasts over a day" which is awesome cause my battery already lasts very very close to 2 full days with moderate use. excited! but i havent played around with rooting it. i did have a jailbroken 3GS before i switched to droid though...

    Still an OG Droid rooted & overclocked to a measly 800MHz.

    Can't wait to upgrade later this year, at the same time, always curious what's around the corner. I know whatever I get, something cooler will be out 47 days later and I'll be resenting it for another 2 years. We joked about iPhones being replaced yearly and now new Android phones seem to come out every other week. :p Bieber 6G!

    I got the evo 4g w/ extended battery.
    also have 2.3 installed but i swear it messed up parts of my phone :/
    a good app to save battery for android phones
    juice defender: JuiceDefender - battery saver - Android Market
    if you're running a phone that can allow 3rd party installations i can get you the ultimate version free. I recommend ultimate for the full customization.

    Evo 3d. Still stock, but waiting for root. There's a temp root out but I have decided to pass until full root.
    Just OK battery life, lasts the whole day, but it gets sketchy towards the night.

    3D is actually pretty cool but has no practical use. The phone is fast though, so fast I'll probably underclock when I get root.
