    who here likes windows vista? who also likes windows 7 using aero? you do realize aero using the processor causes battery life to die much quicker on notebooks then say windows xp. same with 1.3 and 1.4 . the app launching with that card flashes before its going to open and spikes the processor for longer period of time till the app is finally open full mode vs. just short interval of time opened fully.

    1.3= windows vista
    1.4=windows 7 64 bit with aero

    just sent my laptop to repair to have the battery replaced and hard ware problems but read a few days later people complained with windows 7 64 bit killing batterys much quicker then vista or xp


    thank you mytether

    I think it might be related to the new patches that automaticly check for updates, cause i'm pretty sure my battery life has slightly improved.

    My dad has one patch installed... and his battery has been dying like no other.
    So I doubt it's the patches constantly looking for updates.

    You comparison with windows 7 and windows vista sucks as windows 7 has better battery life in many cases.

    My battery lasts longer since the 1.4 update. Original Pre from June 09. No patches, no themes, no preware.

    wait so some people say battery life is good for them and some say it isn't? I'm surprised I haven't seen other post about this...

    My battery life has improved...and actually it's improved a lot.

    My office is in the middle of our building, and it might as well be a cave. I sit around 0-1 bar all day in here. Because of this, my phone gets worse battery life then normal. Since 1.4, I can make it through the whole work day before I need to plug it in. It wasn't like this before.

    And what proof do you have of the CPU spiking other than your assumption that it is? If you could show proof of this, I might buy it, but otherwise I don't.

    What new patches that automatically check for updates? Are you speaking of AUPT? If so, you are mistaken, they do not automatically search for updates. If you are not speaking of AUPT, I've never heard of patches automagically looking for updates and would like to hear more.

    Another vote for improved battery life with 1.4. I especially notice it during the rare times I leave the phone alone for a little bit. From about 6-8% on idle to 2% on idle.

    I don't understand why people complain about battery life on these smart phones. They're designed to use constant data wether your using it or not. How does your email magically appear w/o manual push? How does contacts, programs, calendar entries etc magically re-appear after doctoring? If you don't have an extended battery get used to always charging your device. I have 3 chargers, one at home, work and in the car.

    yea I agree! I don't buy it for a min when someone says I made a few texts a couple calls and email and no web and I'm down to 20% after a few hours.. Straight up bs, the way I use my pre now, it's like a netbook with a smaller screen. I'm on it right now, and use it for a lot of my surfing and reallyonly use my comp to streeam things to my xbox. Soi know my battery is going to get drained, I keep my charger with me always.

    I've actually seen this behavior on my phone. I figure its some app misbehaving so I reboot.
