I have the Motorola Bionic and I might charge mines twice a day if i talk a lot but I i do my usual texting which is a lot(Extremely) Web surfing Twutter twitter and facebook, my battery will last til the evening hours 7-8 pm I have an extended battery but dont use it because the case doesnt fit but I find I dont need it. Don't know if something is wrong with yours. What are you running in background.

Okay, you normally do have to charge smartphones everyday that's normal. But 4-5 is way too much. I'd download task killer app and juice defender Try to keep apps from running in the background that you don't need as that will decrease battery life. It's also a good idea to let the battery run completly down before charging and also not over charging your batter as that supposedly helps your batter self-calibrate. Hope that helps!

P.S. Check your stettings and try to reduce how often your apps auto-update if you have alot of web-based apps.

Keep your screens brightness at mid level, make sure nothing in syncing every hour, dont use live wallpapers, and turn off 3g when its not needed. That could help a bit.
