Concerned about battery life

looking at the specs that are released on this phone so far the battery life appears to suck major. I hope this is a mistake, that could be a major drawback to getting this phone. I know there are apps that help you extend your battery life but just look at how the G2 specs stack up next to its 4 competitors.

HTC G2
Talk: 6.5 hr
Standby: 18 hr
(0.7 days)

HTC Nexus one
Talk: 7 hr
Standby: 250 hr
(10.4 days)

Samsung Vibrant
Talk: 6.5 hr
Standby: 432 hr
(18 days)

HTC HD2
Talk: 6.3 hr
Standby: 490 hr
(20.4 days)


I love the fact that it is vanilla android 2.2 and that it has a physical keyboard which is a big plus but that battery life may not make it a buy for me. Sad

The Stand-by time HAS to be a mistake! there is just no way that can be true.. That has to be 18 days NOT hours..

The standby time is 430hrs, which is ~18 days.

Of course, as with all devices these times are not including app use or syncing.
They basically disable background data on a freshly formatted device (not running any mem intensive apps) and test how long till it dies.
