When I first got my phone, I was never quite pleased with the auto brightness feature because inside my house, it seemed extremely dim. Being a new phone and loving that super amoled plus screen, I wanted to see it in its full glory every minute of every day so since the day Ive owned it, its been set to medium. Well, two days ago, after reading articles about battery life and what have you, I decided to see what kind of life I could squeeze out if I changed that feature. As for background tasks, I turned off metrotube and left insider and IMDB on. (side not- I use a black background with green tiles.)
Now typically, my phone lasts all day without a hitch but I always have to charge it at night for the next day. Even with moderate use, the most I have ever gotten out of this phone is a day and a half, waking up the next day with about 25 percent life left. Well I am pleased to annouce, and actually quite amazed myself, that I woke up this morning and the battery status indicated: Last charge 1 day, percentage left 60 percent!!! So Im actually going on my second day now and Im confident its going to last until I go to bed tonight(will report what it states right before I do) Its been three hours and after reading some news stories and checking status updates, im still over 50 percent(54 to be exact) so Im super excited. Im hitting up the gym later so Ill be using zune for at least 45 minutes but I thought I would share with the rest of you my experience.
Autobrightness still seems really dim at home in the evening but its perfect during the day and at work under office lighting so the trade off to go two days is well worth it to me. Anyone else experience this kind of battery life?
