Help Battery Life

Use SetCPU and nothing else to underclock your phone given your on snapdragon regardless of set you will still retain full speed unless you UC too much obviously.Also do not use task killers they actually kill bat faster by running on top of whats already running in the background.Also move all downloaded apps possible to SD to free up RAM more stress on this puts more stress on CPU simultaneously higher batt drain

Good Morning ~

I've lurked a few times trying to figure out how to prolong my battery life and all I found is how to 'root' your phone and other things I don't understand, I am a techy idiot! LOL!

Anyway, before my friend told me this trick I had to charge my phone up to 3 times a day and I'm only a light to average user. Completely unacceptable. My friend told me to keep the 'recent apps' screens clear. Now every time I use my phone, I touch the recent apps (double box hard key) and swipe any open screen to the left or right. Since I've done this, I can go almost 2 full days without a charge.

I really hope this helps someone. :)

I'm a newbie...can you tell me what is the app screen? I've chgd my phone twice already & I just got it. I don't even have my contacts added yet...Thanks

It is the double boxes soft key at the bottom right of your phone. Tap it and you recently used apps will show up, like gmail, messaging, etc. Swipe each one to either the left or the right to shut them down
