    Delete stuff from the system memory. No joke.

    My system was starting to get a little bit laggy (especially messages app), so I deleted all of my messages and a load of apps I no longer use.

    As well as my phone speeding up by leaps and bounds, my battery is getting about 3 hours additional life (minimum). Before, 15 minutes after taking my phone off charge it had lost a bar, but now.. I took my phone off charge at 7:15am and listened to music for 40 minutes on the way to work.. it's now 10:19am and I still haven't lost a bar! :D

    Sounds more like you removed an app or widget that was draining the battery

    or he unplugged it soon after it had finished charging, as the desire doesn't continue charging once it hits 100%, the battery begins discharging and won't charge until it is unplugged and reconnected to the power.

    Messages, browser cache, apps, etc, are stored in system memory.

    I only removed games, none of which run in the background for any reason.

    I think it's because the phone no longer has to load a 3,500+ message thread every time I text my girlfriend.

    The phone takes about 2 hours to completely charge and I left it on charge overnight, which was a good 7+ hours.
