Hello there, I'm not a complete n00b so I will tell you the steps I have gone through to increase battery life later, but here is the issue. Display settings:- Wallpaper - Plain black Brightness - Lowest Background effect - Standard Animations - Off Screen Time Out - 15 secs Touch light key duration - 1.5 secs 'Display' battery usage - 57%. (!!!) I check with my friend who has the same phone (and is also an android app developer) and his 'display' battery usage is 28%. All of our settings are the same. I am using Android 2.3.3. Can anyone suggest what I can do to increase my battery life? It is running out in less than 24 hours. I always close running applications, clear RAM memory and switch off WIFI, GPS and bluetooth, but my battery is still poor. Any ideas would be much appreciated.
