The guys over at LaptopMag just released battery test results for every major Android phone on the market and the Droid 2 and Droid X dominated the show.  Their LCD screens appear to be the key to their battery life awesomeness while all phones running AMOLED or Super AMOLED screens seemed to struggle to even keep pace.  As you can see from the chart below, it’s not even a competition…

So does this mean you should avoid buying an Incredible?  Not necessarily.  AMOLED technology produces some amazing colors, just steer clear of anything involving a lot of white.  Or you could buy one of the extended batteries available in our store.  (Shameless plug!)

Check out the rest of the writeup including details on the actual test over at LaptopMag.
