Q: How can I improve my battery life?
First off, you should read these threads: How to get the most out of battery life, without rooting

You do not have to follow all of the tips/suggestions, but the advice is sound and will help. Smartphones operate on a sort of spectrum. On one end you could put battery life, on the other end all those options like wifi/3g/sync (among other things). If you want great battery life you can't have those on all the time.
