Battery Life "My Impressions" I think the battery life is about the same. I noticed before the update that the battery monitor would stay at 3-4 bars all day then by the time it got to 1-2 bars it would quickly deplete in a couple hours. Now each bar drops down faster but each bar has been consistent with the battery drain. I believe the battery display is now more accurate to actual battery life. Just my opinion. I'm interested in what you guys have noticed too. By the way I use the extended battery and frequently kills apps and use Oxios memory. My primary usage is TCPMP, Browsing, Phone and games. I also use candlelight for dim setting. I use my Q approx. 4-8 hrs a day.
