In an article by Chris Burns at AndroidCommunity, it was revealed that the life of the battery is not as long as they hoped it would be. They report news of a review that was carried out on a day’s use of the Thunderbolt.

It actually turned out to be less than a day with the battery life down to 8% from full charge after just 3 hours and 34 minutes. In that time the device was used for a bit of Facebook, Twitter, internet browsing and sending email.

Phone calls were not even made and no type of streaming or video playback and camera usage was performed. In the amount of time it took for the device to get down to 8% it was only actually used for 2 hours and 15 minutes.
