Those reviews were from major sites, so it's not like I'm just trying to dig up dirt on the phone. Virtually every review I've seen has complained about the battery life. Some reckon that it can last over a day, with others adamant that it can't.
Well it doesn't match up with what other reviewer have said. also I don't find it remarkably unlikely at all, but then I'm used to the remarkable ability of WP to save on battery, whereas my current android will eat battery even if I don't use it, and if I try to use a GPS app or play a game... then it's gone in a second.
Even the best battery saver apps for Android don't match what's built into WP, and at best only badly mimic WP's ability to do sensible stuff like turn off radios that aren't necessary whent he screen is on, only turning on 3G and WiFi intermittently to check mails or other stuff. the problem with android is that such a battery savign feature isn't built into the core OS, which means even IF a third party tool could add a feature like this, the apps wouldn't know about it and either wouldn't find the necessary radio's off, or they would constantly make the battery saver app turn them on. instead of the OS turning it on for a quick "check updates" round, and informing all the apps that "hey, it's time to check for updates".
even so the reviewer use the phones heavily and the off screen battery saving doesn't even factor in to the battery time on the 920. and 54% left after 8 hours of heavy usage seems like more than enough for a day and a half of usage to me. something I don't see many Android phones able to do, maybe except the Razr MAXX, and that's not because it's so energy efficient
