At the end of every day, I'm running home to plug my HTC Desire to charge before it goes flat. Whenever I'm going to spend the night somewhere I always need to take my charger even if the phone is fully charged. This is exasperating, and I find it hard to consider relying on the phone when it's like this. I've had the phone for a few weeks now, so if things were going to settle down, I'd have expected it already. Pretty much all I use the phone for is SMS and Google Talk. Is Talk known to be a big battery drainer? Since I like the idea of it being a smartphone, I do have Weather, Facebook, Flickr, set on a 2-3 hour refresh. I have News set to Manual. GPS is off. Since I'm at a computer all day, I use that for surfing the web, not the phone. I'd like to use more apps on the phone, but I don't dare waste the battery since when it goes flat no one can contact me. I don't use an AppKiller. Actually I have "Advanced App Killer" but it seems kinda pointless when it just lists every app installed even if I never use them. Any suggestions for things I should try?
