    My battery life has been great, even under high usage (games, etc.) it's usually more than a full day. I went for several days this week with it only charging while I was transferring files via USB.

    Sometimes it will drain quicker, there are a few apps that are quick battery drainers (usually involving heavy GPS usage).

    Compared to my gf's HTC Magic, which isn't so bad but often needs a charge mid-day. No surprise considering the difference in the battery sizes. I've noticed Android 2.1 seems more efficient on battery usage than 1.5 was too, so with her HTC still stuck on 1.5 that probably makes a difference too.

    I am new to this forum.....

    I dunno if I am permitted to provide links to other blogs. I know a blog that provides step by step guides on installing 2.1 :thinking:

    Let me know if I am permitted & I'll happily provide the link here.

    :)

    I've got a new Spica, and for the first charges, it lasts me at least a whole day, with heavy use: wifi, installing and uninstalling apps, games etc...
    The only strange thing is that, from the time it finishes charging, it only lasts one hour to get to 90 % capacity

    I last recharged my phone on Tuesday. It's now the next Sunday and it just dipped below 30%. I'm sure that it can stretch to a week if I'd let it run out completely.

    That's with moderate usage (texting, some web browsing on 2G and Wifi, couple hours of MP3). If you take care not to keep GPS and Wifi running it'll easily last for nearly a week.

    Without doubt the best battery life I've EVER had from a phone, AMAZING! In fact I just posted about this on the "Portal" thread, it's the same phone (UK)

    what about the app "fring" ? I use it for skype communication. I think it drains the battery pretty fast.
    It's the 3rd time I charged my spica (I bought it this week) and the battery lasted 11 hours today. I only used fring, internet browser, gps, wlan and 3g (nonstop running).

    have anybody checked out the app "SetCPU" with a rooted spica? With that app you can underclock your 800MHz cpu to 250MHz and save like 30% battery.

    Can somebody please download the app "SysMonitor" and tell me your CPU idle value?
    First of all kill all tasks with the app "Advanced Task Killer" and then open "SysMonitor" and click on CPU. Now you will see in the top left corner every 3 seconds your CPU idle value.
    Mine is ridiculously high: 13-30%

    p.s.

    I bet your playing with it a lot!


    After a month I'm now getting 2-3 days between the 15% battery pop up warnings, but I do sometimes plug it in via USB to transfer music/vids to it, and photos from it....

    If you use the phone for calls and messaging (the primairy function of a cellular phone) then it's going to last about a week. Just yesterday I used my phone for a couple text messages and some calls and the battery was at 90% at the end of the day.

    If you use your phone for games, gps, mp3s, videos, and wifi/3g expect it to last about 2 days. Heavy usage brought me down to 50% in one day.

    I noticed after rooting and putting samdroid I have better battery life. Probably 10% more efficient.
