a900.jpgI just got a Samsung “Blade” MM-A900 (and a 2-year service contract) from Sprint. (How I “bought” the phone is an amazing story of luck and savings. But, that’s a future article in this blog.) When I read a couple of the phone’s reviews in magazines and forums, I noticed a common complaint: the battery life sucks. The first day I used the phone I said to myself, “No Kidding!” I used up two of my bars in the first half of the day!



Extended Battery

The Sprint Store saleslady told me that Samsung was releasing an extended battery for the A900. But, after looking everywhere on Google, electronics news venues, and even the Samsung site, I could not find a single evidence that indicated Samsung was planning to release such a product.

Unnecessary Features
Then I came across some ideas from fellow a900 users. Just like saving battery power on any other device, they suggested turning off some unnecessary features, primarily the Bluetooth, Internet, and GPS. I never use the Bluetooth, the Internet (PCS Vision and Power Vision) costs too much, and I don’t own any GPS applications!

Turn Off Sequences

One More Suggestion
Of course, the no-brainer way to save battery power is to go in battery save mode. This primarily changes the display (Example: Dimming the LCD). Unfortunately, this setting is hard to find.

Use these tips until they actually come with an extended battery!

    An interesting discussion is worth comment. I do believe that you should publish
    more about this subject, it might not be a taboo subject but typically folks don’t speak about
    these issues. To the next! Many thanks!!
