Hello to all. I'm new here so if this topic has already been opened I apologize...

I would like to know some things about the battery... I got my desire on 21. December 2010 and I haven't worried about the battery life till now.
But I was wondering if it drains too much or not ...and etc.
It's been 19 days since I've got it ...should I give it more time like you guys said?
The first days were ...13 h of battery life but I was really really checking it out Smiley...like everyone I guess?
And so now I decided to tell you some things about my Desire:

I’m at 80 % now …time since unplugged is 5 h 59 min and 2,3,4 sec Grin …ummm I’ve been editing my widgets for a combined total of time around 30 min… turning wifi on and off, also 3G on and off…had about 10 calls …around 10 texts, brightness: custom…less than medium I think, all the animations on, I sinc weather every idk…2 h … …etc.

This is kinda old so this is new now:
 
UPDATE! … …ummm my phone is now at 78 % … time is 7 h 29 min and 34,35,36 sec …I didn't use it much …maybe a little so and so …
So it dropped 2 % in and hour and a half …so what do you guys think?
And I wrote 2-4 more sms now and I dropped another 3 %...

Still I think it’s quite relative. Not all users have the same widgets, brightness set …and so on …I’ve heard that htc is investing quite some cash into battery research…so I’m hoping for new better batteries compatible with the Desire...

And I have also tried the so called battery calibration today before I started to use my phone and I don't know if it worked or not ...

thank you Wink

Hello,
The battery calibration is more useful for new phones.
The first days, even if you don't calibrate your phone, your battery performance will increase. If you didn't calibrate you phone at first, it's normal that your battery performance increased more now.
The most amazing standy time I saw in this forum was about 9 days. But I read a lot of topics and everywhere with a normal use, most people have to charge their phone every 1 or 2 days, no more !

I did indeed get more than 9 days and a half out of one of my phones, but that was purely standby.  With normal use I charge it every 2 days, maybe 3 if I didn't use it much.

With normal use, 40-50 hours seems to be the ballpark figure for the Desire.  So your 1 or 2 days aren't bad.

Depending on how intensively you use the phone, it could take between 10 and 15 days before your battery reaches its normal potential, so yours should have reached that now.  13h on the first day is very good actually.  Most people don't get half as much from their first 2 or 3 charges.

Hello!

I also charge it daily, altough I'm pretty happy with it. The phone is 1 month old, so already calibrated.

What is my daily use? Around 3 hours of music, 0,5-1 hour call, browsing regularily, gtalk, FB updates, and my sister also plays on it for like 1 hour evenings. The battery is around 30% when I start to charge for next day's challenge Smiley

I pretty much use it the whole day, so for me, the battery is enough (besides, the USB charger doesn't take too much space in my bag Smiley )

I'm not saying I wouldn't be happy with twice the battery life, but I'm not sad with this one either Smiley

There are companies that can make little scratches and cracks disappear from car windows.  Never heard about such a procedure on a mobile phone tho.  Not even sure where you'd have to start looking for it.

A soft pouch is no guarantee for safety.  IMO the best solution is a screen protector.  Once you put that on, you don't really have to worry about scratches anymore.  If the protector gets too damaged, just remove it and put a new one on the phone.  Costs a few euros (literally), but replacing the glass every month is more expensive.

how much would a new screen cost? Smiley just for info hehe if you know :p

and ...if I put a scree shield on ...do you think the scratches would be less visible? :p

also my friend told me he once saw a paste that you apply to the screen and all the little scratches disappear... and that maybe his cousin still has it!
hmmm should I try this if he really has it? Smiley

if it works I will latter on buy the invisible shield ^^

+1 for the screen protector

I bought mine on ebay for 0.99 $ included international shipping. I'll got it within 3 weeks and I will tell you what I think about it when I get it if you want.

About the less visible scratches, I don't know but you can try : it's cheap !

You can also find some screen protectors in any store for about 15 bucks.

If I were you, I wouldn't put any paste on my screen until I find the (real) proof that this can't damage it. Don't believe advertisements ^^

I have sent an email to the "tech team" which is cooperating with our operator... and still no response...I even tried to call them but the lines were busy.
That paste that I was talking about is only for resistive touch screens so ..NO GO. And yeah, I will just have to deal with this in my mind and forget about it I guess...and ofc buy a screen shield ...I'm a bit sad though...

I'm thinking that maybe if I place an invisible shield on that the...glue? ...that sticks the protector to the screen will fill up the little scratches and maybe they will not be visible anymore :p ...ummm still they are visible only under a certain angle ^^ so when the screen is turned on you hardly see the little colored lines ...and even if you do look up close you see only 2 reeeeeally small ones.

Still I shall wait on the reply of the tech team ...if there is nothing that I can do I will try the invisible shield glue theory xD ...fingers crossed for tomorrow guys :p

I have another question guys...is it possible that these scratches cause the display to work harder on those spots ...and for the battery to be drained quicker? This is my only concerne now :/

Normmally those scratches shouldn't affect the screen's performance.  As for glue, my CrocFol protector uses static kling to stick to the screen.  No glue involved.  Not too sure about other protectors tho.  Mine is about 10 times as expensive as most regular protectors.
