I just heard today form a co-worker that his girlfriend has an Xperia X10. And he says the battary life is amazing on that device as well. She can go for 2 to 3 days without recharging. Now keep in mind he has a rooted OG Droid Incredible and I assume she is not a "power" user.
Just another data point people...not real scientific or anything
Okay, so sometime last week I have noticed my battery starting to die quicker. Maybe by 10 or 15%. Anybody else noticing this? This is what I call. "the end of the honeymoon period". Others of you say the life of your battary gets better with age.
So where is everybody at? (not just Gameboiye )
The more apps you install, especially widgets, will cause your phone to have shorter battery life since they are running when you unlock your phone. Many widgets will also gather data every 15-30 minutes so there's extra processing power being wasted. I have noticed that there is a problem where some services can get stuck and just drain your battery but the current fix is to turn on USB debugging. You can try that to see if it helps.
Excuse me if I sound ignorant but could you please explain what exactly USB dubbing is? I know where it is and usually had it on with my rooted OG Droid but never was really sure what it was.
USB Debugging enables commands and events to be transmitted over the USB port for testing. Normally you would connect your phone to the computer, turn on USB debugging, and then you can watch the commands and stuff from your computer. Turning it on doesn't drain any battery life and somehow can cause better battery life in certain situations (like where rouge programs start to eat your battery life) Not sure why, but I just leave it turned on since it helps.
i think if depends the owner of the phone how to use hes phone so the battery of phones is long life...
I must say that from reading this, it seems the Xperia is going to be pretty darn sweet!
So after rooting (r800x) and freezing a bunch of bloat with titanium backup, my battery life is even more amazing. Spent the last weekend in Vegas and even after 36+ hours I was only down to 40% battery, and that was even after texting, taking pictures, and taking on the phone throughout the day.
