How's your Touch Pro 2 battery life?
All right, folks. We've got three carriers, er, carrying the HTC Touch Pro 2, and we've got a few weeks of use under our belts. So, let's talk about battery life. The TP2 has a 1500mAh battery, which certainly is respectable. But as Malatesta noted in his review of the Sprint Touch Pro 2, different carriers have different estimates when it comes to battery life. And we all know how these "estimates" go anyway.
And, so, we put it to you, Touch Pro 2 users. Yeah, this isn't going to be very scientific. We all use our phones in different ways. Mal found the battery to be acceptable. Others, including vin5cent0 in our forums, have found it lacking. Chime in and let us know how your Touch Pro 2 battery's holding up.

Its kinda hard to know which one you guys are talking about..
Most days I am at work, I take the phone off the charger about 7:20am and it sits in my purse or on my desk all day, by 4pm when I get off work I have maybe sent/rec'vd a dozen text messages and maybe talked on it for 30 mins off and on and I am down to 2 bars, the rest of the time it has just sat on my desk.
It has died on me twice when all I had done all day was a dozen or so text messages and check my facebook app for an hour total and the rest is standby time.
I am coming up to my busy season at work and have calls forwarded to my cell after hours and I really can not have this thing dying on me. I have a car charger and it charges all night and then I have to put it on the car charger as soon as I leave work sometimes just to make it home. I didn't expect awesomeness but at least the day with heavier usage then I have now.
As of right now it is 9:45am, its been off the charger since 7:15am, I have gotten 4 text messages (4 hrs of standby and 33 mins of usage) and I am at maybe 70% battery (under settings and battery the first green bar is gone) I know it will be almost dead by the time I leave work today.
Other than that I love the phone, I am learning all the ins and outs and the cool stuff it does, I just wished the battery was better
