I'm not sure if this is an iscolated incident or not but my battery will not last 8 hrs with limited use. There is a discussion going on about it @ androidforums.com. I exchanged my first one the day after I got it and am still having the same issue with my new one. Other reviews I have read seemed to have had no problems with battery. Is it a bad batch of phones/ batteries??

Really figured this would be the case. This is what happens when your using an overclocked processor. I will take a little bit of lag to be able to last through a day any day.

Sorry but I went all day yesterday at least from 8am till 11pm on a single charge. I used quite bit of internet downloading about 10 apps sent 25 text mesg receieved 75 text mesg, received about 15 email responding to all of them from the phone, also talked for about an hour and it lasted till 11pm and still could have gone longer it wasn't dead.

I purchased mine on Wednesday, and have not been able to get more than 4-5 hours before it dies, without making a single call or loading the browser. An hour after taking it off the charger today it was at 80% battery, and down to 5% by 1PM. I charged it fully around then, and I'm down to 15% at 6:45...

The questions between users is this: What kind of syncing are you doing? I have sync turned on to Google mail, contacts and calendar, as that's what I want this phone for. I have bluetooth and wifi off.

Thos of you getting 8 hours using the web: Are you using background sync?

...This is worse than my 2 year old Mogul I just switched from...

I think the Weather Channel widget is the battery killer. After I deleted it it is much better now. It is trying to get GPS location too often I guess.

I used Moment about 3 days now, and it seems to me that the battery life is pretty good. I can make it through a full day checking emails, downloading apps, and surfing webs. I am wondering if you fully charged the battery before you used the phone because it takes quite a long time since it is an Android OS different from the regular phones. I personally think Samsung made a great device this time and am curious to know how you used the device i.e. downloading? internet use? call time?

The sad thing is was i really wasn't using it a whole lot! I have been so busy at work that I hadn't had too much time to really use it other than when I got home at night. My average day was maybe 5-10 phone calls lasting about 3-5 minues each, less than an 30 minutes internet and a total of about 50 txt msg's. It sounds like several of you are not having the problems I was, but after exchanging the phone once and having the same problem I went back to my PRE. With the same amount of usage on my PRE at the end of the day I would be at about 60-70% battery instead of 5-15% with my moment. Wish that weren't the case but those were my experiences

The problem that i have with my moment is that there are alot of programs that run without you knowing it. If you go to the app store and get the free " ADvance Task Killer" application it will show you and allow you to close them all. This will help alot with your battery. It did for me anyways. I kept telling my GF that I think programs are still running without me knowing because I would stop using them and them come back to them like 3 hours later and its in the same place i left off. And thats games, apps, internet. They all jus kept running. Try the app killer in the marketplace for free.

And if you are in a building where the signal isn't strong, it will suck the life out of the battery. If you're at work and you get barely a signal, or no signal at all, try throwing it on airplane mode.

BTW I have a Rogerrs HTC Magic, at work there is no signal, be it from AT&T to Verizon Wireless with all carriers in between. It really drains the battery.

Yup, that happens with all Sprint phones I have. It happens with my Hero, but when I am in my office where I know it will drain, I just quickly turn off the data on the phone and it saves the heck out of my battery. I don't know about the moment, but with the Hero, just hold down the end call key and it will give the option to turn off data.
