    I bought a Samsung Droid Charge and battery life barely last 10 hrs with Wi-Fi and GPS turned off. I have the display set at 1 minute. But I don't use the phone that much during the day. The battery usage say it is the display that has used the maximum amount of power but the brightness is set to a very minimal level. Email notifications are set to every 15 minutes. The only thing left is to turn off mobile data.

    Is this your first smartphone?
    That battery life sounds about right for a newer phone.

    My phone can do 60 hours on standby and 8-10 hours full usage.

    My tablet can standby for a week.

    Root and kernel FTW.

    root and kernel INDEED FTW!!

    Yes, stock battery life on androids arent really that great. Fortunatly for developers there are ways to get such things. I recommend looking into root and kernels. Even moreso Id recommend looking into Cyanogen rom. I doubt tho that its made for your phone just yet but trust me its worth the wait.

    This is supposed to be the easiest method. I am going to try this myself this weekend (or I hope to).

    The process I posted worked flawlessly. As long as you can follow directions then anyone can do this in very little time. Let me know if you run into any troubles.

    Samsung phones are attached with very poor battery. I have stopped every data usage and default apps running through the task manager, but still the battery lasts only for 7-8 hours. my nexus is totally new, brought just a week ago.
    Galaxy series phones have very poor standard batteries.
