Although, Samsung is making a 2nd generation which will make the battery life better and better AMOLED display.
Yes, its the Super AMOLED display which eats all the battery.
BTW, here's the successor of Galaxy S.

Super AMOLED usually has better power consumption. It's 20% better than AMOLED, which had lower power consumption than SLCD due to being able to handle colours like black better.
Flashed an Android 2.3.2 ROM on mine recently. Been running very smoothly, great battery life, with various added features. Only downside to this ROM atm is the current kernel needs a bit more work on it as write speeds to the SD card while it's mounted on the phone are quite slow, but each kernel update speeds it up. And I do miss some of the things from Sense, especially the widgets.
Will be better once the Nexus One gets 2.3 as then the ROMS for the Desire will be able to get a lot of stuff from the Nexus One.
