Re: battery life

because no matter whats on the screen, there are always processes running in the background. Thats the point of Palms Synergy, always updating in the background.

Re: battery life

It's odd i can go around three days sometimes but mostly i hit 50% by the end of the night but if i do a lot online all day i'm fine but if i make a few calls throughout the day it tears through mine somedays but never as bad as my diamond or tp

Re: battery life

Tonight I will be taking the subway to go see Monday Night RAW and will be away from a charger for approx 5 hours. Combine that with no service on the train and a congested network at the event and I should get a good battery test tonight

Re: battery life

LOL Carla, how can you not know what that is??

I was very pleased with the battery life tonight. Was at 66% after 4 hours off the charger. Took a couple pics and a little web surfing too.

Re: battery life

Battery life for me depends on what I'm doing. On a normal business day, I have no issues going 24 hours. Mostly because I'm just getting push exchange email and occasionally doing things with the calender but for the most part it just sits at my desk all day. Battery life is much shorter when I'm constantly using it. I can kill the battery in less than 5 hours playing music or videos, surfing the web, twittering, etc. Turning airplane mode on does help a ton when I'm reading ebooks and want the battery to last.
