    Pearl battery life

    Advertisement



    Hi
    Just wondering how everone is doing re battery life on their pearls... mine does max about two days between charges running 4.2.0.67.

    I'm a fairly heavy user but was wondering how does that compare with other people's experiances.

    One thing that might effect this is the fact i didn't listen to the advice of the O2 salesman who sold it to me - he said i should not turn it on once i get home rather i should charge it fully for 10hrs before using it for the first time. sounded like voodoo ignorant advice they always mention in phone shops but I was wondering if he actually had a good point.

    The pearls uses a lithium ion battery so there is no need to prime the battery (Initial charge of 10 hours or so not needed).

    Read about it here:

    I believe this was posted by cp6169 before.

    Go down to advantages to read about the No priming part.

    SO... How often do you all run down the battery?
    Is that neccessary to keep the phone's battery in a healthy condition?
    I know it's good to turn the phone off once in a while to let it sync with the network, but does it help the battery?
