I made a couple of adjustments and have seen a remarkable change in battery performance.I minimized the people tile and turned off the top two WiFi advanced options. I'm not sure which change did it but now the battery usage is comparable to my iPhone.I left my house and streamed music from Rhapsody for 20 minutes. When I checked my battery level it was still at 100%.I've been using the phone heavily since and no issues so far.
Thanks for the update...the info might help someone else.
That's what I thought too.If an iPhone was released with an issue like this it would be headline news, made fun of by the droid community, endlessly blogged about for years and patched right away.It feels kind of lonely here in the windows mobile world.
