+1 Symbian and Nokia. Battery Life ..
I was on symbian for years, it took roughly 10 seconds to forget it when I got my first android phone. Even the iphone I had for a year was better than symbian. Good luck getting whatsapp on your N8.
A computer programmer is someone who, when told to "Go to Hell", sees
the "Go to", rather than the destination, as harmful."
This is how phone typically looks in the afternoon:
I pretty much have to charge it halfway through the day, otherwise it runs out during the evening. Luckily I have a spare charger next to my desk at work, and a charger in my car, so I'm generally okay.
Agreed that 6 days was a tad abnormal (Minimal use of about an hour a day), but it proves my point that the battery life is not because of the OS its because of the Hardware and how you use it.
On a side 6 hours? dude wtf are you doing to the phone? my HTC Desire HD can play 7 hours of movies none stop without a need to be plugged in. You have something seriously eating away at that battery.
.... and thanks for all the fish.
I don't think my usage is completely crazy:
- WiFi enabled
- 3G enabled
- Background syncing enabled
- Bluetooth disabled
- GPS disabled
- Screen brightness set to auto (Galaxy Nexus is very aggressive in dimming the screen - it actually kinda makes the screen look crap to be honest, but I put up with it for the sake of longer battery life)
- Receive 10-15 emails per day
- Receive/send 10-50 WhatsApp messages per day
- Check Twitter and/or forums every couple of hours
- Maybe some light web browsing, or read an article on Pocket or Flipboard
- Listen to music for maybe an hour or so
- No gaming
- No watching videos
That pretty much kills the battery in 7-8 hours.
