Then you are going to have to call me out as well.
Now I don't use a task killer, but I routinely get 2-4 days life out of my battery. Granted I am not a power user, but I make and receive lots of calls every day (it's a work phone). I do light texting and I make two or three trips around the internet each day to certain websites. I also kill a little time each night playing solitaire or some other simple little game. I have turned off all unused features, like GPS, bluetooth, autosync, etc. and only turn those things on when I need them. I also turned down my screen brightness to minimal for indoor use and about 50% brightness for outdoor use. Doing all of this, like I said, I get 2-4 days out of my battery. I also did a test the other day where I didn't touch my phone for 10 hours and I only lost 7% battery life in that 10 hours. Equate that out over 100% battery life and that would come to just under six days. So to say it's not possible to get that much life out of the battery is just plain false.
I'll jump in and say that my battery has lasted 48 hours several times now. But I frequently disconnect myself from all data networks (even 3G) using the app Quick Settings. So I'm not exactly what you'd call a heavy user (I only occasionally need to sync, and I mostly just use this for email).
My battery like is very short. I will have to try shutting down services not in use.
I use the apps - Quick Settings and Timeriffic. Battery life has extremely improved.
I use my phone to its fulll potential. I run it all, all day long, charge it about 3 times a day, got a charger on me 24/7. No reason for a smart phone if you don't use its features. Sum people may mis understand, but its this high tech for usage
