Reviews I've read have shown close to three days of battery life under low use, about one and a half days of "average" use, and nearly a day of heavy use (not quite as heavy as the 8 hour stress test I suppose). I think the iPad will at least match those numbers.
For fuck's sake people, have you never looked at tech specs before?
It's not constant usage, it's accumulated usage. He pulled 20 hours from Moto's marketing, "THE LONGEST TALK TIME OF ANY 4G SMARTPHONE" which lists 21.5 hours of talk time.
If you say that you can get 20 hours of LTE use then by that measure you can 720 hours out of the iPad because you can turn it on, use it once, then let it sit for up to a month and then come back and use it again. That's a whole month of 3G use on one charge if you think like an idiot.
So you're claiming that the iPad must be shit because Apple only lists 9 hours yet I can go days without charging. You seriously don't see how being in standby mode will affect the usage time or how WiFi, 3G, video, and audio times are based on usage of a specific feature?
Bottom line: You get 21 hours of talk time on the RAZR MAXX which is double the Droid RAZR because it's double the battery. You do not get 20 hours of LTE either all at once or spread out several days. They couldn't even get 9 hours from light internet use and switching to WiFI.
