What power setting do you use on your Rezound?

Discussion in 'Android Devices' started by TxGoat, Nov 29, 2011.


What performance setting do you keep the Rezound in mostly?

Poll closed Jun 11, 2013.
  1. Performance mode, I want it all, both cores lit up like an Xmas tree & LTE humming!

  2. Normal mode, I surf, I game, I need my battery to get me through the day.

  3. Economy mode, I'm a hyper-miler. I also like to cut the engine and coast to a stop in my car.

  4. You mean you can change the power consumption on the phone? huh?

    I hadn't seen this asked yet and figured maybe we could see where everyone stands with regards to their battery life and their power settings. For those that don't know, if you go to Settings>Power>Power management you can adjust how fast your Rezound eats your battery.

    I've found that if I am at home and do anything less than Performance, I get no 4G connectivity or it bounces around. Thus, I keep it at Performance almost exclusively. I do notice it gets warm occasionally, but that's when I take the Otterbox case off and let the Rezound frolic around 'nekkid'. I get about 8-9 hours on the Performance setting which is fine by me. I figure it's like when I owned a performance car that requires premium, if I can't afford to put the good stuff in then I probably can't afford the performance car.

    What sez ye?

    Yeah, I'm on Performance, as well. It seems to do better at steady use than turning off and then gunning it to catch up when you wake the device (nice analogy with hypermiling!) so you lose some of the benefit you should see.

    I might try Normal after another few days at Performance. I still get 9-10 hours so that's good enough for me.

    I use performance mode. Normal and economy mode disables my gmail and other crucial syncs I need for business, which isnt profitable for me. :D

    I tried the normal mode yesterday (just got the phone Sunday night) and couldn't figure out why it wasn't telling me when I got emails! Now, in "performance mode" it's been dinging away all day! Now ... to decide whether or not that's actually a good thing ... :rolleyes:

    What you do is you switch to "Economy" mode when you know there's an important email coming but don't really want to answer it. ;)

    I bought the phone for its 1.5Ghz speed so I wouldn't want to use any setting less than Performance mode. And with the extended battery, I get all the juice I need. I overclock my CPU and memory on my home desktop, and I expect I'll overclock the Rezound if we ever get S=Off and modded kernels.

    I put my phone on economy after about 5 days (so the 21st) and haven't had any trouble getting gmail notifications. In fact I get 2 notifications, the HTC mail app is sending them as well. The main reason I wan't worried about not having it on performance is I don't have 4G in my area, so switching to normal was no biggie. So then I went to economy to see how that would work for me and so far I can't really tell the difference, so until that changes, that's where it's staying.

    I'm in "normal" mode and I haven't seen any change to my 4G locations or switching.

    It does change you to reduced sync frequency setting, but you can go into the sync options and change it back to auto-sync. That keeps sync going while letting it save power in other areas.

    Is there any place that tells what each setting actually does? I've not found it.

    i didn't vote.

    I leave mine in Performance Mode BUT i leave 4G off unless i really need it.

    I average between 10-15 hours on a charge. And i'm fine with that.

    I thought I'd find something here HTC Mobile Phone Support - HTC Rezound? (Verizon) - Help but nothing really is addressed there as far as I could tell in the "Power and Battery" section. What does make me shake my head are the questions that they do have answers to, "How do I power on my phone?" Darwin rolleth over in his graveth.....

    I have played with all three settings and finally decided to keep it on "normal". I don't see a significant performance difference but I do see a difference in battery use among the three, at least for my use.

    I don't have 4G at home so only use that setting during the day in "civilized" areas. This past weekend at home with the phone set to 4G and normal as a test and with reasonably light use I got nearly 2 days on the stock battery.

    You can enable economy mode then turn on your gmail sync. This mode is customizable.

    Thanks I had no idea you could do change individual settings. I can probably use my standard battery and case now instead of the extended battery and case lol. :D

    Edit: Unfortunately economy mode did not work for me. Even with enabling background data it still periodically polls for new email. I need it instant. Thanks for trying.

    Performance Mode-

    Switched it down to the next mode for a night- wondered why I had no 4G LTE connection, and why Gmail stopped syncing. Once I figured out what I did, I put it back in Performance mode, and won't be taking it out of there.

    I did turn the gmail sync back on, somehow, but it only lasted for a short period of time, before it went back off, same as the 4G LTE signal. That's why I put it back to Performance.

    What about Talk (Gmail chat) ? BTW I don't want to use economy only "normal", but my two imperatives are keeping Gmail mail and Talk synced at all times.

    There are settings for this below the mode selection zone. You can control background sync, screen timeout, etc.

    Performance. Never tried anything else. I turn off 4G when it's glitching, or if I'm using Trapster.

    Performance for me and my extended battery. I may only get ten miles per gallon out of my gas tank....but I got a big gas tank!

    That's what i'm saying! I bought this thing for the performance. Why would i want to limit it? It ain't no apple!
