Hasn't really ever been an issue for me on both my phone (N 900) or tablet (Fire HD). Just doesn't get a lot of use and have yet to stress about battery life.. calls, minor GPS or Office use on the phone, don't even use bluetooth. Light reading and the occasional SSH/RDP session on the tablet, once in a long while I'll fire up HBO Go, that's about it. Neither one does what I really need them to do for mobile work, most of the "heavy lifting" is done by a laptop.
If battery life wasn't an issue I'd get a Surface Pro and ditch the laptop entirely in a heartbeat, give the Android to my daughter who'd probably get a lot more entertainment value out of it than I do. Doesn't last long enough though and batteries (as far as I know) aren't swappable, so a little skeptical about using it for work purposes. Still eventually getting one though for home use if anything.
