      HTC Wildfire
      HTC Wildfire S
      Sony Ericsson Xperia 8
      Samsung Galaxy Ace

      don't if any of these are good but I saw them on Carphone Warehouse... ;)

      Ace and Wildfire are good, used them both personally. But Wildfire S will be even better than wildfire, its a newer model after all. :D

      I'm using Wildfire, had Ace for a week from my uncle.

      Still, ask away, I might be able to answer you as I have used it and a few other samsungs before.

      Download android's advanced task killer. You can manually close programs that run in the background when you don't want them to. It shows how much batter you've got remaining too. I find it very useful.

      Otherwise just keep your wifi off when not using it, wifi quite literally eats up battery very fast.

      Don't know about mobile data but I think it uses up less battery as compared to wifi. Wifi is very heavy on battery, more than mobile data maybe. Try doing it the other way round, you know, keeping wifi off and mobile data on. See if that helps.

      I have that app and keep my wifi off when not needed, so battery is not really much of an issue for me.

      I will try the same once my battery is fully charged again, i leave it two days without charging until fully charging it again.

      What is your favorite android app?

      Whatsapp, angry birds, task killer.... Don't use them too much now. Its only in the beginning that you install all apps and explore them. After a while its back to just texting and calling. For me atleast. :D

      Mates use whatsapp, personally i prefer ping chat. Do you use a customized web browser because it seems to me that the default browser uses a lot of ram, therefore draining battery.

      Viber is a sexy app too. Is it available on android though? I just use it with my ipod touch.

      I use Dolphin Browser or Opera, default browser isn't good enough.

      Yeah wifi is on with mobile data off.

      I have also downloaded Go Launcher Ex, which replaces the samsung look and gives you an HTC look, i was just wondering if anyone uses this app and see's that it uses up a lot off battery.
