I am very happy with my battery Happy Maybe there are some difference in production.........I don't know.
For example, if I go to bed at 2200 and get up at 0700 it has never used more than 4% of battery(usually less). The phone is on, but wifi,BT and of course GPS is off.
And I can use it much during the day and I have never managed to get it empty during the day(not even close). Though I have to say I don't use the GPS. The GPS will empty your phone pretty fast. As any other phone(tried it with earlier phones).
And also I use the phone much for talk and in this department it's the best battery I ever had. The prox.sensor of course help with this as the screen shuts down as soon as you put the phone to your ear.

Hi everybody,

2 nights ago night i put the phone into sleep mode on 00:20 , in the morning at 06:20 the battery dropped from %58 to %38...
Yesterday night I did the same, but the battery dropped from %86 to %84...
I mean the battery leaks faster when it is around %20-60..

I use 2G by the way...

So have we had any response from Samsung regarding why the battery loses power overnight with the phone powered off?

I find this quite worrying, as either the battery is leaking, or the phone isn't really off. Either way it's not good.

How many other people are seeing this?

I've noticed a slight battery drain increase from this phone from my past, but I expected it with a larger/brighter screen & such.  my phone comes off the charger at 5:45am & doesn't get back on it till sometime between 11/11:30pm.  While at work I pretty much only txt & use very little net maybe a hotmail/gmail email check here or there.  Though in all honesty haven't really surf'd the net alot on it as of yet other then mail.

Anyhow I can go the day at work until I get home around 4pm & have 3/4's or slightly less  battery full still with averaging about 500-1000 txt's (total sent/received) in that time.  Checking for msg's by lighting up the screen, playing with apps etc.  Also use the phone for about 10 mins (calling) in the morning & on my way home from work.

When I get home thus far have had slightly more useage while home & usually by the time I hook it to the charger I'd got about 1/4 or just slightly more left.  Though the other night I did little txt'ing & had about half battery that night as I didn't use it much when I got home b/c I was doing other things.

But as far as I'm concerned the battery life seems about on par with what I'd expect from such a device.  I'd like a laptop, get a high end gaming laptop & it's battery life will suck compared to a general purpose one.

beo I'd say return it for another b/c that seems excessive & like a serious battery and/or phone issue.  It shouldn't burn through the battery like that if you aren't running anything or using it for calls.

After one month of use, I have made all kinds of trials in order to preserve battery power.

It appears that the big consumers are :

1. Live screens
2. Downloads
3. 3 G
4. Internet connection

I don't know about you, but the back of my phone gets pretty warm when I stay online for a while... ?

On the other hands, listening to music use very little power. So does text messaging or e-mail reading (not connected).
