    O Seasoned Android Users:

    Any suggestions on what settings changes to make on the Samsung Captivate right out of the box? I'm looking for tweaks to improve battery life, improve GPS performance, etc. What things have you folks used that worked well for you? Some explanation as to why you did it might help as well, because my situation might be different than yours. Just curious.

    Should I have knelt and bowed my head first before asking this?

    Humbly,
    GreatBigDave

    Keep in-mind that the more dirty hacks you install/apply, the more-likely you'll have problems later on down the road. Most are peddled and pushed hard on these forums by people who don't understand what they do or the full ramifications and risks. It doesn't make it better that many are ridiculously easy to install. Just because something is easy or "one click" doesn't make it safe or extremely intrusive behind the scenes.

    I would suggest starting at CapFAQ: FAQ - CapFAQ

    For example, the setting to not have wifi turn off when your phone goes to "sleep".
