Searched the forum for an existing thread, and couldn't believe there wasn't one on this subject! I didn't expect the battery life to be great, but it's worse than I'd hoped! I think it's been on about 8 hours so far today, since removing from charge and I've done the following; About 60 minutes of talktime (30 minutes via Bluetooth Headset) 10 SMS messages 5 minutes of WiFi. Of the 8 hours, I've had it in "Flight Mode" for about 3 hours. (Bluetooth and WiFi are turned off except when used as described above) Battery indicator is still green, but close to 50% I would say. Any tips on improving battery life? Obviously, setting the screen brightness to minimum is one way. I've also tried to see if you can 'turn off' applications which may be running in the background, but can't find a way to do this. My previous Nokias allowed you to see what programs were running, and you could turn them off to save battery power. I know a selling point of the Hero is that you can switch to applications quickly without 'loading them up', but is this killing the battery? Thanks!
