Cant imagine the battery being that bad especially if the phone is just on standby or something.Would really appreciate if early adopters of this phone have some more feedback about the battery(and i hope its positive for a change :)

Had a play around with this phone at my local Carphone Warehouse and I have to say initially I was impressed with the specs of the Ray but not very impressed with the phone after usage. I can't comment much about the battery talk time but according to the Ray the screen was using up to 85% of the battery while other systems like Android OS was around 2% maybe significantly reducing brightness and turning of the Bravia Mobile Engine will increase talk time. Compared to other smartphones the touchscreen did not feel as responsive as it should be but what really made me walkaway from the phone was the home button in the middle of the phone stopped working during usage of the internet. No matter how hard I pressed I couldn't close it down, not a good start for the Ray!

Hey buddies! Relax, you've got the phone from couple of days and you can't judge whether the battery life is good or not. For example, Arc's battery lasted for few hours in the first days of exploit and after that ( couple of weeks, power saving hints, 2.3.2 -> 2.3.3 etc. ) it could make it for 2-4 days with normal usage. So don't panic, a bunch of reviews are on the way i think and the battery life will be discussed thoroughly.Best wishes, Ray-Fan.

oh my...i'm planning to buy this phone in few days but on what i've read the battery sucks, it doesn't last long, it drains quick. to those who have it please tell me what really the score is when it comes to its battery life...i like everything about the phone but if the battery is not good then i'll buy arc or htc sensation instead.

I only have 2 complain with this phone:
1. Battery
2. Small fonts (to comfortable to read)

> In reply to [deleted post]First try resetting your phone. If it didn't work, try a repair using pccompanion. I think the battery drain you have is just a software issue that can be fixed by the way i told above. Do you believe a 1500mah can give only 5 hours standby? And, please get rid of the app killer. 2.3 can itself manage apps intelligently. :)

4h 39m 38s on battery, and the battery level is only 29% left. Only had a few calls, total call time not more than 30 minutes. No serving the Web., no playing with the phone screen / features, no games, no camera used - nothing. All application were turned off / killed by Advanced Task Killer.
