    How much do Live Wallpapers drain your battery on the Incredible? I used to have one, but I heard it drains your battery a lot, so I got rid of it. But now, I saw that cool Pixel Zombies Live Wallpaper, and decided to reconsider. Has anyone had any experiences or done any tests regarding Live Wallpapers and battery drainage? Thanks!

    Not to bad, I've found that battery widgets effect it more than the live wallpapers.

    I use the Starfield Live wall paper and it doesn't even register on the battery monitor included with the phone, which requires a minimum of 2% battery use from what I can tell. Just don't use one like Shake them All (the one with the droids that move all around the screen) which polls for movement, sound, and touch. Those are really bad on battery life.

    My wife had 37% battery usage go to shake them all, even on what they recommended for the least battery consumption.
