    Smile Newbie Owner. First Smartphone

    This is actually my first smartphone. I am just currently playing around with it and the first thing I noticed was that the battery dies down real quick. Anyway, great to be part of this community and hope to learn a lot from here on. Are there any very important threads I should first look over to learn the basics of the phone?

    Thanks!

    The battery life of smart phones gets better with time... because you stop playing with them as much :rofl3: Seriously though. The battery life sucks because the first few days/weeks you've got the thing on CONSTANTLY. The screen will burn more power than every other function combined (more or less).

    Personally, after having it for a week, I can nurse my phone for about 24 hours... though after owning an iPhone I just accept that my limit is 1 waking day, and charge every night. If you need to last longer, turn off that which you don't use - like wifi, gps & bluetooth. They won't save you a ton if you've got the screen on - but every little bit helps, eh?

    Hi flagella

    You can try Screebl Lite - Save Power! v2.0.11 Application for Android | Tools. I use it mostly because it leaves my screen on while I'm reading on the web. But it also turns it off quickly based on orientation of the phone, like laying it flat on a table.

    Here is another app for battery JuiceDefender - battery saver vEvolution 1.3.7beta Application for Android | Tools. I haven't used it but it has good reviews.
