Hello all. I have been browsing this forum for about the last two weeks, since my wife got the Huaway Ascend and I have 2 quick (hopefully) questions for you guys. I just bought a Samsung Prevail from Boost 2 days ago and am running into a few minor problems. Thread 1) Has anyone else had any issues with very short battery life? Im talking from 100% to dead in ~6hrs? Most of that time is just farting around looking at apps in the market, playing a little bit of Words with Friends or surfin the web or Facebook. Now I know that running games, internet, etc etc will run the battery out faster than if its not doing anything, but seriously....6hrs? Im unsure of what any, if there are any, good apps to help reduce battery usage are out there without trying every one of them. I have Advanced Task Killer right now. I have tried a few different "batter saver" apps, like Superbox 10 and 1-2 others with no luck. Im not sure if Im just not using the apps correctly or what. Other than that, the only apps that I have downloaded so far is facebook, bank app, words for friends, pandora, flashlight, and 3d weather clock. Any information on that matter would be SO helpful! Thread 2) Im still very very new to the concept of rooting phones, but I looked around and couldnt/didnt see anything regarding this, but what exactly does rooting do? I understand the basic concept of it, deleting the preloaded apps and, as far as I can tell, changing the "os" of the phone to something else. What I dont understand though, is I read about people saying "it makes the phone run faster etc", but exactly how much faster vs stock? What are some of the other benefits from rooting your phone? Is it reversible? Such as, if I damage my phone and need to repair it, with insurance, can I "undo" the rooting and revert it back to its factory os etc? Im sorry for all these dumb questions, but I want to know as much as I can before I attempt something like this on my phone. If there is a thread that I missed, which is possible, please let me know. /thread Thank you very much in advance for any and all help with these issues.
