    Has anyone else noticed the reduction in battery performance from SW version 20 to 26? When I updated form 16 to 20 the battery proformance was significantly better. I was getting at least 2 days with moderate use. Now on version 26 I am lucky to get 10 hours :mad:. I'm considering going back to version 20 or should I hold tight for the much talked about September update?

    I have noticed a decrease, although I have also loaded 2 new widgets on the screen. I could probably still get 2 days if I used it sparingly, but it is down to around 50% by the end of the day, so I don't want to risk not charging it. It used to be around 75% after 1 day of average use...

    I would have said the exact opposite , battery life seems better for me on this later firmware

    I downloaded a battery monitor widget, which looked great and did its job by displaying my battery level.... the sad thing was that it just sucked the life out of my phone. It took me a bit of fiddling cos I had also downloaded a couple of other things so it was a matter of disabling them then adding them back one at a time to see who was eating my power.

    I also tried at the same time not task killing so had to blend that in to my investigations. Gave up with that experiement when I was having problems but think I will try again today now I know my battery life is back where it was.

    I've not task killed all day. Checked emails (hourly refresh), done some web browsing, sent some (well quite a lot) texts, made a couple of short calls, viewed timescape (facebook on hourly update too) on and off during the day and now 13 hours after unplugging I'm still at 66%. I am wondering if there is something to this letting the system do its thing. I will have a few more days of leaving well enough alone and see how it goes.
