HTC 8x Battery Life?

So I was going to post this in the wpcentral forums but they're down so I decided to do it here.

Is there a public consensus on the battery life for the HTC 8X? I finally decided I'm going to get this phone after all, but every other review is "The battery is mediocre" then "the battery is great!".

The whole point of a phone like that is to be able to be connected without having to actually be connected (i.e. charging the battery all the time).

I just don't want to have to worry about the battery life but I can't get a good idea about it from reviews I've read because they're all so different.

Side Question: All reviews have been from the AT&T devices. Could the battery life vary from AT&T to Verizon?
