    Hey guys,

    I am wondering if there are any methods to save battery life on my Sony Ericsson Xperia ARC? Here are the details of my settings:

    Screen timeout - 30 seconds
    Brightness - 25%
    WiFi - Off
    GPS - Off
    Bluetooth - Off
    Syncronisation - Off
    Background data - On.



    Also, do the battery saver apps actually work? Because I've read a few places that they don't help at all?

    Thanks.

    The first thing to do is work out what is using your battery:

    Main menu > Settings > About Phone > Battery Use > Tell us what the top three names and percentages are here.

    Thanks for the reply.

    The top three on the list are:
    Display 51%
    Cell Standby 20%
    Facebook 10%

    Well to be honest based on that alone as it is the display that is using the bulk of battery the best way to reduce consumption would to turn down the display brightness a bit.

    Thanks, I'm guessing the battery saver apps aren't very effective?

    I have heard mixed results. I don't use one myself.
