    Thanks for this post techcredo. I too have found that since I got my android mobile compared to older models that the battery life was poor… This was by trying to limit and be conservative with my phone customizations for various permissions. I got a couple more tips :) (Having said that though, it has been the one phone I have enjoyed using the most). I only launch my Facebook app when I want to look at it, rather than continually syncing, but still find it is still the biggest drain on my battery using 45% of total battery through the display. (HTC Sensation Android 2.3.4). I have recently downloaded the HTC’s latest software/security update which is supposed to improve battery life a bit more. here’s for hoping!! Cheers.

    i will to try your tips in my android phone, but is not any besides effect???

    • techcredo

      No, there are no drawbacks in my opinion, except for the minor inconveniences mentioned in the article.

      I personally don’t need to be notified of new tweets, Facebook messages and so forth, so for me there’s no disadvantages at all.

    Getting push email with data turned off????? Are you kidding! That’s dumb! How can you get push email without an internet connection? It’s like trying to get the same on a computer without data!!!!

    • techcredo

      No, I’m not kidding. Turning off “always-on mobile data” doesn’t mean that there’s no Internet connection at all – you simply prevent your Android from being online non-stop. See? Most apps running in the background will still be able to handle their online tasks.

    Suprisingly i found that turning the usb-debug mode on has improved my batterylife

    • edward

      Yes. It works. If u turn the usb debugging off, the /init process run at background will be more than 70%. This will kill your battery life and also make your device lag.

    Thanks for the tip! Are you sure it actually works? I’ve read about that method on various sites on the interwebs, but it has always seemed like mumbo jumbo to me. I guess it’s worth a try, though.
