Longer Battery Life w/Mango
Since Mango my Quantum can't even last half a day with nothing in the background. Make the OS more power efficient please!

There has to be something going on that is sucking your battery. My HTC Titan lasts 3+ days regularly with a white background theme, auto brightness, and the HTC Hub and Weather.com Apps running in the background (both pinned to start). I also have WiFi turned on 24/7, which connects at work and at home (so almost all day). As of typing this, I have 26% bat left and last charge was 2 days 2 hrs ago (50hrs).
Check your settings for sure man! Check your update/sync options for email and such. Syncing constantly could be draining it fast. I use 'hourly' sync for everything except when I'm traveling, which I then change to 'manual' because like Aart said, 3G sucks a ton of juice.
That's TRUE the system consumes much power it should be more power efficient, specially if the phone is not using apps and stays on standby...
Battery life is appalling! Even in standby.
yes my battery has gone down quickly not even over half day and battery dropped down to 58,unstable battery life,some other days are all fine!!
Every modern smartphone won't last longer then 24 hours....yes that includes android en iphones
to get more out of WP turn on Wifi @ home or at school or work... 3g sucks allot of juice out of your phone.
My lumia 800 can hold the battery just for a day. I think thats really poor... :(

Really? I can only last a good 2 hours using 3g on my Omnia 7. Maybe my battery is defective as I had some issues with it before.
AT&T has sent me three different Quantums and two new batteries. I wish that was the problem.
i can get more then 20 hours on it
