So first off, yes, I've read many threads about battery life, etc and things to do to to prolong etc. What I was hoping to do is break down what I've done, explain what I have and someone can tell me if what I am still experiencing is 'within the range of normal' Experiencing: -6:45am remove fully charged battery -Ride bus to work, surf web for 5-10 mins -Fall asleep with phone not in use -8:15am (1 hr 30 mins later) check phone and it is down to about 81% with no additional usage. Stock battery Brightness set to auto adjust GPS & Bluetooth disabled. Only data/phone enabled. Removed flickr account Revised any programs and updates to be no more often than 1 hr HAVE NOT changed the setting "Enable always-on mobile data" - I am still not clear what this does or doesn't do, so I've left it as checked. Disabled the "show animations" - not sure what this does because I still see animations for my weather/clock combination with the clouds and/or rain. Performed that "charge, disconnect, charge again till green, disconnect, repeat" and didn't notice anything significant Verified that the "awake" and "active" times do not match up, meaning the phone is not constantly awake doing stuff I have a program batterytime lite running as a widget to display actual battery %. Not sure if that could in itself be causing excess battery usage Programs I have downloaded: Advanced Task Killer (not actively running in top or anything though) AndChat - irc client Astro BatteryTime Lite Cellfire ebay facebook (pre-installed) Key Ring Layar Live Scores Meebo IM Moviesfone Movies Pandora Scanner Radio Shazam Shopper SportsTap Talk To Me The Weather Channel USA Today Wapedia yxFlash So: (A) Is what I am experiencing normal expectations? (B) Did I miss something I should be trying to increase battery life outside of an extended battery? Thanks in advance!
