Correct, Battery problem is with almost all the SMARTPHONES due to few listed factors:

1. Large touchscreen displays which consumes lots of energy
2. ios and android like OS consumes lot of energy since they are constantly running one or the other application in background

Seems like Samsung is going to launch the successor of the Galaxy S pretty soon. The rumoured specs seem to be too good to be true. Samsung will probably unveil the phone in February during the MWC ( they unveiled Bada and the original Wave last year at the same event ) .

The rumoured specs :
4.3-inch Super AMOLED Plus Display
Dual core processor
NFC (Near Field Communication) Chip
Android 2.3 (Gingerbread)
720p HD display (resolution of 1280x720)
1 GB RAM, 4 GB ROM, 32 GB storage with microSD slot for cards up to 32 GB
8 MP camera with full HD video recording
Bluetooth 3.0, 802.11 b/g/n WiFi, A-GPS

My friend is having the same and it seems its a nice phone. Many places it says that it does not support Flash. Can somebody tell me what exactly it does not support ? Flash is a basic component now in every website.
I am thinking of buying the same one.

Most of these aftermarket batteries overinflate specifications and don't even match the duration of the OEM battery. You can give it a shot and use it as a spare battery however

Even though I have no experience on the Sony Ericssion Xpria Pro, as far as I know it will never get an update to Android 2.1 , so in my opinion it's a no-buy.

I do not have one but all i can say is that you cannot upgrade it to 2.2 Froyo. Last update from 1.6 to 2.1 is final
