I run CM10 on my S3 and generally keep brightness levels down. I can almost achieve two days on a single charge with a 2100 mAh battery.

In 30 years time our childrens children will be using devices that "last 4 years" without a single charge. Then when we tell them "Back in my day, we were happy if our phone lasted 2 days!" and the kid will say "omg you had to stop using your phone and charge it? Thats stupid, what happens if it dies where you have no outlet? How could you keep charging it like that, what an inconvenience!!"

And we'll smile and shake our head.

Batteries.. There is so much energy in matter a phone if converted can take out a city. Yet we struggle to have a big battery last a day.

My note 2 lasts all day with about 30-50% left at the end. I run it at full brightness.
The note 2 battery performance should be the benchmark.

[citation][nom]TunaSoda[/nom]You can get a 7500mAh battery back cover for the Note II...[/citation]

Used to use a 3500mah extended battery in my droid incredible compared to the 1300mah stock battery. A lot of people had a WTF reaction when they saw how big the phone was due to the battery and said the thing was too big. I made about every single one of them shut up when i told them to show me their phones which all conviently had protective cases on it and were quite a bit larger than mine when put side by side.

Just wish my new phone had a extended battery option but so far so good it hasn't needed it.

Funny I already say that. Back when i was young my cellphone lasted a full week with a single charge. These days that crap can't live through one full day. But hey.. we got tiles/facecrap/apps/whatever...

[citation][nom]Marco925[/nom]Why would a battery need NFC?[/citation]
The article was worded poorly. The NFC is on the backcover and not the battery.

No. The NFC chip is IN THE BATTERY. Your comment is worded poorly...

They will probably use the resident hydrogen in the air and last forever. Infinite battery life.

I run the stock firmware (4.1.1) and regularly have no issue going 2 days without a charge, and I keep brightness levels up. This thing smokes my old Thunderbolt in speed and up time.

I remember some old phones that used to keep working after heavy usage (talking actually on a phone, yeah it is a mobile telephone too) somewhere around 2-3 days. I know you will say they didn't had color displays, my answer: bigger (screens) is not always better then technological advancement. I was really fine with something around 2.8-3.2" and the lame 320-240 resolution. I bet with a nice gpu, a simple dual core and a advanced superamoled (or what is the most advanced in display technology) would be able to run at least 4 days.......

Speak for yourself. 9 hours so far and 65%
That includes some GPS time, ~45 min phone (bt), and the usual videos and FB and rubbish. If im a little careful I can get 2 days easy out of the iPhone 5.

As for heavy usage, todays phones are crammed with so much capabilities, and a lot of them can run simultaneously. GPS, 4G data, and a phone call can, and often are running at the same time. That would smash any device.

You're by no means a heavy user, rather a light user. Don't get me wrong, the iOS is better in energy conservation than Android, but my coworker uses his iPhone all day at work, mostly for phone calls and his battery is usually less than 25% by around the 7 hour mark. Still better than my Samsung Charge with its wimpy 1600 mAh battery. If he had time to fill it in with playing games and surfing the net, it would be dead by 6 hours or less.

I don't know how I would feel about having a nuclear device up to my ear. I'd rather a defective battery melt through the floor and blow a chunk out of the earth's crust.
