Re: What are you're battery tweaks?

+1 for getting rid of Friendstream. Useless app. I saw improvement in my battery after removing that. Plus like others have said, 4G, wifi, bluetooth GPS all off unless i need it. Screen brightness to about half, no live wallpaper. News and weather updates every 3 hours. Seems to work well for me. i can get thru most of the day with those settings.

Re: What are you're battery tweaks?

ive read gps doesnt really need to be turned off because it only works when you need it to.. its not like a constant on, for instance if your using locale then you might want to turn that program off because thats whats keeping your gps active

Re: What are you're battery tweaks?

Where exactly is "Friends Stream" ? I can't find it to turn it off.. unless I disabled it already and it does not show. I don't remember doing that though.

Thanks

if youve never signed into it then i dont think you have to worry about it... it's the htc widget everyone's talking about. you can find the app of it in your app tray.

Re: What are you're battery tweaks?

I'm a noob to Android ... how can I remove these apps completely from my phone. I can uninstall apps I've downloaded but not apps that came preloaded.

Re: What are you're battery tweaks?

You would have to be root and use something like root explorer to delete stuff that came on your phone. Which is actually a step ahead of winmo you can't delete anything in the rom with them except make a new custom rom with out them.
