    Battery life sucks

    I have had this phone for about a month, love it over all how ever the battery life is bad. Not even with much use by the end of the day its almost dead. Like 10 hours. Durning that time I am ruining it in power saving mode. Ideas? I am rooted. Would one of the custom roms help you think? Bad battery?

    Try putting it into Power Saving Mode when you aren't using it much, and try to reduce the number of processes in Task Manager. If you're rooted, then you can try underclocking when the battery is low.

    mine is totally opposite to that my battery seems to last forever.. i go two days without charging.It should last about 6 to 7 hours constant use.. about 3-4 hours media/games..

    try running it until battery is totally DEAD... keep turning it on and off until it will die before it reaches the home screen.. THEN LEAVE IT OFF FULLY CHARGE IT.. unplug it turn it back on. Fully run it TOTALLY DEAD AGAIN AS ABOVE.. if you did not do this when you bought it . the battery may think it cant hold more then a few hours charge. LI Batteries have a computer chip in them it can sometimes get out of sync with the actual charge in the battery. This will cause it to to STOP CHARGING When its not fully charged. The above will get it back in sync with the power capability of the battery.
    Hope this is not to complicated and that it works for you...

    lithium batteries

    This procedure about running batteries dead really applies more to nicad and nimh batteries. Running lithium ion and polymer batteries completely dead is actually harmful.
