If I decide to commit the SII to that same fate, I imagine that the battery life will be insane (in a good way).
I get about two weeks or more using it primarily as an alarm clock and in airplane mode. However, if I do anything even half-way intensive, or just turn on the Wi-Fi for a quick browse I can lose 30-60% of a charge in half an hour. I just killed it when I used it as a phone, am sure a new battery would help immensely.
