Re: boost battery performance

speedbooster 2.0.20 is one of the easiest and most effective programs for increasing the battery life!

Re: boost battery performance

also if you use S2U2, lot of people say the new one doesnt kill battery but i beg to differ. i used it couple of days. went HALF THE DAY and battery died! took it off instantly and used the 6.5 smart lock. and fulll day im at 65 with moderate use. i have no push internet on and i have my email checked every 2 hours. hope that helped.

Re: boost battery performance

I recently read an excellent blog written by one of PPCG TP2 users, Kabuk1, which has some great info on exactly what you are looking for... Link below...

http://rolandsdottir.blogspot.com/20...life-tips.html

Also, I recommend Lumos to cut down on the power consumed by the GIANT screen we have... Lumos is a free app hosted over at XDA...

Here's the link:

Hope this helps...

Re: boost battery performance

I still don't know what happened, but after having my phone for about a month, my battery changed over night. I went from barely getting through a day on a charge, to where I'm only charging it about every three days now. I changed NOTHING on it. I have bluetooth on all the time, I use S2U2, I text, talk and browse the internet. I use an average of 20% battery life per 18 hour day.

I know this doesn't help you much, but it shows there is either something in the programing, or the batteries themselves that is causing the drain. I wish I knew what it was I did, if it even was something I did to fix the battery life. I'm just thankfull it happened.

All I have done to the phone was load the flip clock, no curtains, task bar, and S2U2. I had all the exact same programs loaded before and after the change. I'm boggled.

Re: boost battery performance

I have had weird changes in battery life too, sometimes longer, sometimes shorter, by major amounts. Not sure why....
