Battery

So whenever I am using my phone my battery seems to die out fast! I have it on 50/30% on the backlight and BT is not on. I go on the internet and text most of the times. Why is this?

yep, even with the *far* better battery life vs the 6700 (which was 3 hours talk time with a tail wind, 5 bars, turning off the screen, and a bit of luck) you will be hard pressed to get more then 5 hours of talk time out of a titan with a 1500mah battery.

Wifi is worse then that.

EVDO is about the same as that.

So if you are surfing the web, and really keeping the data active, you can see 20-25% battery drop in an hour of use. When you use it like a laptop, the battery life is the same as a laptop - well, an old laptop with a smaller battery, not the new laptops which are 40% battery, by weight

This is so weird, I have been reading so many post about horrible battery performance but I can actually say the opposite. I use my phone with bluetooth about 2 hours a day plus internet browsing, sending and receiving emails, texting etc... and my phone lasts all day. I take my phone off the charger at about 7am when I am leaving to go to work and by the time I get home at around 6pm I still have 60% battery. Hell just yesterday I slingboxed the entire patriots game plus talked on the phone for about hour plus and still had 40% when I got home. I could not have done this with my 6700 so I don't know what to say.

Yeah, it all depends on your usage, lots of phone calls plus BT and your battery can be toast before the day is over. I went 3 days before I dropped down to two bars while on vacation though, no phone calls, no bt, and checking mail every 2hours.

Yep.. and to an apache owner, that's FANTASTIC life Heck, even with moderate talk time (60 minutes) you'll likely be in decent shape at the end of the day battery wise. I think its really relative to what you expect. Having the battery sucking monster that is the 6700 for a year, the mogul is really very good.

Absolutely; the batter life on my Titan is MUCH better than it was on my Apache. I'm just thrilled I don't have to plug the damn thing in every night!

Battery life all seems to be about perspective. I imagine there are many people fairly new to the pocketpc scene who have been using regular cell phones for years, and they're used to getting a week or so of battery life from their cell phone, even with moderate browsing, text messaging, talking, and the like. I've been using pocketpc devices for years, well before they had phone capabilities. I expect my Windows Mobile device to only last about day if I'm really using it, because that's what it's been like with them for years. I used to have to charge my iPAQs up pretty much every night...and if you let the thing totally die, oh you were screwed. The base rom was stored in nonvolatile storage, but everything personal (programs, contacts, anything that didn't come with the phone) was stored in cheaper RAM, and it all cleared when the battery died. Every day, I'm amazed at the functionality and performance of this Titan. It's by far the most incredible Windows Mobile device I've ever owned. Now if I only I could get linux working on here...
