Good point, forgot about the display options. Keep brightness on "automatic". It doesn't strain your eyes too much and keeps the battery in control.
And keep your wifi,3g,bluetooth,mobile data off as much as you can, that will make the biggest difference to your phone battery.
HTC wildfire is cheaper than Galaxy Ace here.
Might be the same as the iPhone. Switch Bluetooth, location services and all those automated updating things off.
Screen lock right down to 1 min, brightness down.
Thanks, I have all that switched off only on edge at the moment to keep an internet connection but when I tried out 3g the battery went down drastically, think I will use EDGE when at school, out and about and switch to wifi with all the mobile data off when at home.
5hours, 33minutes, 28seconds since unplunged. 60% Overall.
63% Cell Stand By.
15% Phone Idle.
There my statistics for today, seem much lower then yesterday, but I did have 3G turned on for about 20 minutes.
Don't think the 3G would make any difference as it's only the 'phone signal.
Like having Dial up, or Broadband. Just the speed of data transfer.
Mate it does, because its faster on internet it uses up more ram of the phone, it seems I didn't do enough re search on my phone before buying it, the ace has a name for having an underpowered battery.
