    what mode are people running their battery? i just noticed that under smart mode, it turns off the 3g when the phone sleeps.

    does perf mode drain the battery noticeably faster?

    I've noticed that the performance level has drained the battery much more. I now have it set on smart mode and noticed that the battery has lasted longer. Besides there's no reason to use 3G when my phone's in my pocket.

    I tried out performance today. With moderate use including over 2 full hours of pandora, im at 20%. I unplugged at 8 am, 16 hours ago. This is considered a full day for me and is worth the hour or two lost because i notice the phone is a little snappier.

    i need 3g to get emails pushed to the phone when it sleeps so guess its going to have to be perf mode.

    i wonder if it affects actual performance while awake.
