yes... I was laugh....
That era, I was use my old N70. But now, when I hold my Android phone and do the same thing, i realize that...
..all the fancier phones seem to never hold enough juice to last more than a couple of days even just a whole day at a time. Some phones might even die midday despite just hanging there on your pocket in the class.That's frustrating...
But thx again for all the genius-head Android developer. They have some tips to increase battery life on Android device. You can give it a try too...
1. Control Auto Sync
Go to setting > Accounts and sync and untick Auto-sync. This will stop phone to sync calender, contact, etc and connect to internet without our permission. I think I can see my email my self by clicking Gmail Apps. Don’t worry, you can still sync those account manually if you need to, like Facebook, Twitter, Gmail, etc. By default, it checks for new messages every 15 minutes which can be quite a strain on your battery. Make it check every hour instead or even better, let it update manually.
Then go to Settings > Location and security > Use wireless networks and untick. This will disable Google anonymous data.
Another auto sync is Samsung Apps and auto backup. Disabled it by go to...
- Settings > Applications > Samsung Apps > "OFF"
- Settings > Privacy > Back up my data > [UNTICK]
2. Control Display Usage
You may know it (by see graph on setting > about phone > battery usage) sceen is the the most voracious battery eater. Try lowering the brightness when indoors. More often than not, the light inside will be bright enough to see your phone’s screen clearly even with the backlight turned way down. Adjust it to a comfortable level though since you still want your phone to be useable. Turn off automatic brightness as well.
Hand-in-hand with lowering the brightness of your phone, you can also reduce the time until the screen turns off when not in use. Unless you plan to use your phone very often (for checking incoming mails for instance), try to put this at the lowest setting possible.
Another thing that helps is to use a dark, static wallpaper. Stay away from live wallpapers and choose a wallpaper that’s mostly black or just use a black background altogether. That’s part of the reason Android menus have a black background: it consumes the least amount of power and resources.
- Settings > Display > Brightness : Set it to Minimum
- Settings > Display > Touch key light duration : "set as minimum as you can"
- Settings > Display > Auto adjust screen power : [TICK]
3. Disable Fast Dormancy
I don't know much 'bout this, but every one said that. I try on my phone and I feel some difference.
Phone > Keypad > *#9900# > "Disable fast dormancy" > Quit
4. Use "Juice Defender" or "Green Power"

5. Wise with Display
It is a major problem of killing battery, so keep your brightness less which is acceptable by you. Today maximum android phones have LED screen and they use more energy for brightness and colors so use nice and dark blackish walls and themes.
Head into Settings –> Display –> Brightness too hard for you? Use widget, "Brightness Level", you can find it in Android Market. It help you to change brightness setting one click on your homescreen.
