I dont know whether its just me or not. I tried a whole lot of things to improve my battery. And discovered, when i switch off the vibrator i get a battery boost of 40%!!!!! Straight without any other change like brightness etc. Wanna know whether its just me or you guys get the same.
By the way i am new to windows phone as well as this community so hello guys :-D

I am a battery fiend myself, and keeping your email syncing every 30 minutes or an hour helps a lot. I have 4 email accounts, and if I have them all on "push" my phone will die in half a day haha.

I have 3 email accounts on push and do a moderate amount of texting. My battery generally ends up at about 30 - 40% by the end of the work day (5 - 6pm), and the phone is off the charger at around 8am. Battery seems about the same or fractionally better as my iPhone 4 (which isn't saying much!).

I tested the vibration-off effect the last couple of days and did not get the reported improvements. These inter-user comparisons, however, are problematic because our use patterns and device characteristics and settings are too diverse. I wouldn't deny irfan's own data/experience, but I would doubt that many others could duplicate it -for this intervention or most others.
I can't easily compare my own use patterns from one day to the next. I have two cheap backup batteries that I've wanted to compare with the Samsung, but it's just to hard to control for my own daily variability. I think they are not as good, but I haven't been able to come up with any good estimates that I could report. Anyway, if I were to guesstimate the vibration-off improvement for my Focus profile and my usage these two days, I'd say 10-15 percent. Not worth it to me -then again, I'm used to just popping in another battery as needed and not worrying about battery life. ;)

I totally agree. The battery performance in the end boils down to personal usage. I guess cuz i get calls mostly and i answer late, so maybe for me turning of the vibration with ringer on gives a better battery performance. Cuz the motor is not used. Also cuz i text(chat) alot so maybe the constant vibration is also avoided hence maybe i get a good boost which others might not get. But anyway its a beautiful smart phone and smartphones tgese days anyway dont have batteries like our old black and white basic phones haha
