Which dual-core phone is best for battery?

Motorola Atrix
Samsung Galaxy S2
HTC Sensation
or LG Optimus 2X

Don't much fancy the LG Optimus 3D :o)

Hard to say. Ideally you'd need all the phones with the exact same setup - same apps, same background sync for the same apps on the exact same signal etc etc...
It makes online debates about battery performance so futile-ish.
I used a SGS2 for 10 days and it gave me between 16 and 20 hrs. Setup was similar to that of my Htc Desire HD which barely made 10 hrs.

as daft as it sounds, dual core in theory should offer better battery, smaller chipsize and the way they process tasks, saying that the sensation uses sense which uses far more memory and processor, the atrix and the optimus have not quite as efficient chips but the atrix has a massive battery, for battery life id go for the atrix or galaxy s2

The SGS2 has a far better battery than the Sensation, and the Atrix has an even better battery life than the S2. Saying that, with any kind of "proper" use, you'll be charging every night. The only one that's unlikely to even make a day is the Sensation, HTC haven't quite cracked decent battery life yet... unfortunately. The SGS2 is widely regarded as the best of the "Super-Phones" though, if you're considering buying one.
