Obvious, but zero brightness makes huge difference in battery life.

    Your eyes will adjust quickly and the screen will be plenty bright except outdoors.

    Using the app Quick Settings (free in the Market) makes screen go 1-2 levels lower than stock "0"...almost as dim as lock screen brightness.

    I only use the lowest setting. It's like people who own flat screen TVs and have to have their settings at the store-level brightness, i.e. full bloom. Unnecessary. My phone regularly finishes the day with 50% on average left.

    I also find the lowest stock setting to be plenty bright 95% of the time. The only time I bump it up is outdoors in direct sunlight. At night I think I could deal with the brightness even lower.

    don't you feel as if you lose a lot of the color and vibrancy that the screen can offer at such a low resolution?

    Maybe it's just me and this being a brand new phone to me, but I love the brightness on about 50% and can't see myself really going any lower than that. It just looks way too good to not have it up a little :D

    I can disable GPS, WiFi, Bluetooth, set the screen to 0, and only use the phone to make calls and text, and I can pull 3 days without a charge.

    ....but what the hell then, is the point of having a Droid? An awesome phone with the most customizable and entertaining operating system out there?

    Guys, I leave the screen up at 90%, I enjoy looking at the beautiful vibrant screen. I enjoy the features of this phone, and just suck up the extra charging. I paid money to use this as a multi-device with sky's the limit capability, and that's what I'm going to use it as. So what if I have to charge twice a day. That's what a second charger and a car charger are for.

    I'm not going to squeeze the soul out of the phone to milk the battery for a few extra hours.
