RE: Battery life
2/16/2013 10:26:01 AM
I also own a HTC Desire. My first and currently only smartphone. And with moderate usage (like on a boring weekend at home, occasional checking mails, checking time, short web surfing), with Wifi on, mobile data off, I can get 3 days or more of usage, with the 2.5 years old battery I used from day one. With normal usage, talking, browsing, mobile data on, it lasts over one day, up to max. two. With heavy usage, playing games, full brightness, it's empty in less than half a day.
Most probably it's because I use a custom ROM based on CM, or maybe it's because you have mobile data, GPS or other devices turned on?
But your point is valid, the battery life of the HTC Desire in default configuration is nothing spectacular, but also remember it was one of the first Android smartphones and is far from perfect.
