Hi,

I have got the solution. I have reset the phone on factory mode. All the application have installed again. Then working perfectly.

Actually phone battery life span is very short (3-4 hrs) without WiFi/ GPS/ Account & Sync/ No major application / phone call 30 min max in 3-4 hrs time span.

Now I have installed the Advance Task killer & APN application (for Enable/Disable Data Connection, 3G/2G/GSM) for increase the battery life. let see how much battery life will increase.

If anybody also facing the same battery problem & they have any idea for increase the battery life then let me know.

Regards

Susheel

Yeah I think 3G drains the battery quickly. I'm trying to find a way that I can disable 3G and turn on 2G/Edge?

Thumbs up Solution how to increase Battery life...

Hi friends,

Though who are struggling with the Low battery life for Samsung galaxy Apollo phone good news for them.
I brought this phone few days before. since that day I was facing the low battery problem hardly 3-4 hrs battery life. I have tried so many ways to increase the battery life by installing many applications. But No result. Finally I have got good & easy solution of this I have installed the 'Quick Setting' application with 'Advance task killer'. Its a free on android site. By this I can Stop/Start the 3G/2G data, Auto Sync Data, Wifi,GPS, blue tooth, Sound, Brightness and Ringer/vibrator if not in use. If need then switch ON after that switch off.

As per my observation. In morning 8:00 a.m. my phone battery was 100%. in whole day I have use min 75 Min Voice call, Media player mp3 songs played approx 1.5 hrs, 45 min approx Internet mail check & download some software also by 3G/Data. Now 10:00 p.m. my phone have 70% battery life. Previously in 4 hrs my phone used to dead/switch Off automatically because of low battery.
Now when I need Internet I switch ON Mobile Data 3G or WiFi / AutoSyncData by one touch toggle button switch of 'Quick Setting' application. After the use I used to switch off.

Dramatically my phone battery life increase 3 times then before (more then 12 hrs).

If anybody is also facing the battery problem then follow my way.

Regards

Has anybody found a decent app that switches off the 3G/Edge but leaves the MMS setting intact (O2 PAYG)?

I was using APNOfOff by CurveFish but today realised that, despite me saying "enable MMS" when switched off, I was not successfully sending or receiving any MMS messages.
