RE: Battery life?

The Milestone's screen is terribly power draining. Even playing SNES games on it is still the screen that takes the majority of the battery life, even with brightness turned all the way down.

This is where Pentile RGBW comes into play. Brighter screens without being too much of a drain. The original Droid/ Milestone has an IPS with some really powerful backlighting. I remember having to carry an extra battery for trips longer than 10 hours just in case.
There will be quite a power draw on larger screens as well but hopefully the increased battery capacity other optimizations can let the Prime achieve decent battery life.
Surprisingly enough my Thunderbolt has been getting decent battery life before the Gingerbread update and even better (in stand by) after the update. Heavy usage still clocks me in at about 12+ hours of use while moderate to light can get 15+.
I'm looking forward to the HTC Vigor and Samsung Droid Prime, especially now that Verizon has announced a Droid Loyalty program. I don't need a new phone but it's the inner geek inside that likes new electronics...
