Have you found out specifically if it's the combination of both the bluetooth radio and 4g radio that kills the battery or one or the other? I've paired my phone now with my car and tested it, but again, leave the bluetooth off until I need it. Does your battery usage utility tell you what's actually drawing the most power? (Settings/About Phone/Battery Use is what I'm talking about for those who are interested in this feature.)

I agree that it would be nice if the phone had a battery with enough power to use all the features for at least most of a day. I personally don't feel like they have to provide all features 100% of the time, because that's probably not how the majority of users utilizes a phone. Remember all the talk of fuel cells a few years ago? I wonder how long it will be until we have unlimited runtime by just adding more water..
