I just had a motorola droid and just switched to a TB. First thing I notice is that the battery does not lat as long as my droid did under the same amount of use. I installed the advanced task manager with the autokill setting setup just like it was on my droid and that didn't help a whole lot. I do have the google gps on for the weather apps but the vzw and standalone gps is off. all the vibrating stuff for touch screen is off as well. I just read about turning off PVM and PVW running services and did that so I will see how the battery does tomorrow. I am however a newb to this android stuff and am not really and advanced user by any means so alot of the stuff I read here is hard for me to understand. I'm not really sure what i can afford to turn off and still have the phone run properly.
