2. Theres an app called "juice defender" you get a free version and a paid version which has more options. I ended up buying "ultimate juice" for the extra features. Its ok but screen brightness i think makes a bigger diffirence.
3. Make sure in your options you have the screen to turn off automatically after 1 minute. Again this is becuase the screen power eats battery you dont want it on when your not using it.
hope that helps.
I had juice defender on my Legend, but the problem I had with it was the lag it caused between swiping the open screen and the android starting up. It wasn't a long wait, but it was enough to cheese me off after a few days, so I deleted it.
