    Hello you guys :D

    I propouse this thread in order to improve the battery life of our "Gravitys" :p

    I was wondering me about the battery life of my ph :S My battery last for a day max [​IMG] [​IMG] And i guess it is because the wifi. On the wifi policy i have that it never go off because is ridicoulus to this go off if the screen go off, because i migth be on the MSN or Whatsapp or loading a video, i guess the huge problem it that the ph continues to search for a WiFi connection even if im already connected to a WiFi, like the one on my house or work :S Is there any option to switch that searching mode off.

    Any more advices to get better results?

    The wifi is probably not the biggest drain on your batter. It's probably the screen itself.

    If you're still getting a day out of your battery and you're watching videos and such, you're not doing too badly.

    And leaving that turn wifi off setting at "never" is probably a good thing (I've read that wifi eats up less juice than 3G).

    Im sure that WiFi is better than 3G according to the battery life, because with my last ph (Nokia E71) i was able to keep without charging like 3-4 days being maybe all day conected, but with that phone we can disable the WLAN scanning so this just connect and thats it. Now with the Gravity (and maybe another Androids) this is always 'scanning'...If you go to settings/Wireless and networks/Wi-Fi settings/ next to the 'Wi-Fi networks' always appears every 2 - 3 seconds: 'scanning'

    So i dont know how to stop that scanning thing :S

    I could be wrong, but I think it's only doing that when you go into that setting to refresh the list of available wireless networks.

    Actually its 3g that will crush your battery life. WIFI is important to have on and to have it connect when you are in range of routers you can access. You can also get an app that auto-logs you into free wifi like mcdonalds and starbucks. Also root your phone and get No-Frills CPU Control and raise min CPU clock speed to 320MHz.
