    Hi,

    I'm always interested in new mobiles, love the colour screens, new designs (hate some though!!), but no manufacturer seems to have cracked decent battery life though.

    What have you got and what standby time do you get? (don't care all that much about talk time as I'm a texter)

    Me :-
    Nokia 6310i : 10 days
    Sharp GX10 : 2.75 days
    SE Z600 : 4.75 days
    Ericsson R380 : 4 days (8 with huge battery pack)

    Nokia 5210 ~4 days

    It used to be more than that, but the phone's 16 months old now so is showing it's age :rolleyes: If I try and actually make a phone call it packs up completely virtually every time if it's not plugged in.

    I get about 50-60 hours standby on my 7250i, thats including sending/receiving 3-4 texts a day and using wap gprs for an hour each day, and the odd short call.

    I get about 4 days out of my 11 month old 6610.

    Bearing in mind the amount it's used (I send about 600 texts per month and use about 300 minutes) I don't think that's too bad.

    A long way off the stated time by Nokia but I think most people would accept that as the norm nowadays :rolleyes:

    My P900 averages 1 - 3 days depending on usage.

    A few texts, some emails, a bit of browsing, contacts updating and a little gameplay gets me about 2 days.
