Hello all....I am a NOOB to this site...I loved reading the posts and I am excited to join and start posting myself. I had the moto droid for 6 months and really liked it. I recently updated to HTC Incredible and have noticed a HUGE battery difference. The stock battery was literary needing charged twice a day because it would run down so fast. I woke this morning and in 5 minutes of no calls/texts, it ran down from 100% to 90% (courtesy of Battery Widget). Some of the apps I have downloaded are: Facebook Tango TiKL Handcent SMS WinAmp Advanced Task Killer MicDroid When i start my phone, ATK shows that 20 apps are running. They are: ATK Volume Button Controller NEws Clock Amazon MP3 Google Search Facebook Handcent SMS Voice DIaler FM Radio Stocks VZ Navigator Brightness Level My available memory is 245M and Auto Kill is ON. I have recently bought the new 2150 mah battery extended battery from VZW and I was hoping to notice a big difference. The moment I turned on the phone after charging to 100%, it drained like 10 % in 4 minutes, without even using the phone. Now that you all know my story, ANY help would be greatly appreciated!!! I am trying to get the best settings and tips on what I can or cant use for battery life. 1. Do I need Advanced Task killer with Froyo? Should I use it? 2. Do widgets run more power than just having shortcuts on the home screen? (I only run Calendar, Facebook, HTC Clock/Weather and Favorites widgets right now). 3. Do the bigger programs like Tango and WinAmp run more battery than perhaps stock default programs? Thanks again everyone for the help! I really appreciate any tips and help tp better my current phone setup!
