battery

A few weeks ago, I received a comment on one of my posts stating that a good way to improve battery life is to change your current background image to a black background. Naturally, I immediately... changed my background to a small black image I found on the web. In addition, I made sure I tracked my daily battery life changes through screen shots. Furthermore, I ran these tests using the Galaxy Nexus...

Since I could not take my hands off my new Galaxy Nexus, its battery life has been tanking. In my last article I had explained how calibrating your battery could solve your problems. However,... for most Galaxy Nexus users, calibration isn’t the problem. It’s your beautiful 720p 4.65″ display. But why limit your phone right?

Calibration

With great power comes great responsibility! And in the Android Community, with great power comes great loss of battery life. If you’re like most smart phone addicts, the battery meter... is often half empty (or less). And to make matters even worse, over time, your battery life will probably get worse and worse due to the degrading health of the battery itself. Therefore, I have two s...
