I have the G2 and it is heavily dependent on how I am using it. On standby I get at least a day per charge. If I'm Yelping and navigating and gas-buddying, etc, it's a lot less.

Of course I have killed a lot of stuff. I rooted it and removed Twitter completely (it was always an auto-start program - I hate Twitter). I removed a few other things, but don't remember what now. Then I use an app-killer program so that whenever the phone boots the app killer pops up and shows me everything that just loaded. I kill all but the necessary apps (e.g. Facebook gets stopped), and I'm good to go.

One thing I found seems to really kill the phone is the email app (not gmail, but the yellow icon 'email'). Don't know why. But if I try to set that up with Yahoo and the office, my battery dies very quickly. When I kill the email, it lasts a LOT longer. 1poorlady has observed the same on her Nexus (she's on Jellybean, I'm on Gingerbread).
