    So, I'm using Conservative, all the default settings. But I don't know which setting is better. How much would the extra +50 increase hamper my battery?

    Anyone use these settings? Lemme know!

    I'm running 250/720 with screenstate. That seems to be doing well. At 500, the phone had a tendency to get hot.

    Im pretty sure conservative requires a lot more battery than constant frequencies, like screenstate.

    Just a theory I don't really know, I'm guessing it makes it check if it needs to overclock every second (or whatever you set it at).

    I really think screenstate is the best. I like knowing chances of overheating while in my pocket is slimmer and that it will mitigate some of the damage to the life of my cpu

    I believe you are correct. From my experience any scaling governor that is set with a minimum below 500Mhz seems to put more strain on the CPU, which also causes the overheating problem that people have been experiencing. In screenstate or performance with the minimum set at 500 or 550Mhz my Pre rarely goes over 42C.

    Heat really isn't an issue for me, even in Texas. I just want good battery life, with a splash of speed. hence the 720 and not 800. I really only use messaging, email, facebook, and the occasional browser session. throw in a phone call here and there, and that's my pre plus!

    just want the best daily battery life

    Like the others, I've tried several different settings and use Screenstate 500/720 right now (was 800 before). This setting has seemed to give me the best battery performance so far. When I play games or video, I change it to Performance settings instead - seems to help with TMC issues (but still trying to confirm that).

    Really? About how long on a full charge?

    Pretty tough to say since it's a very subjective thing. I use mine heavily through the day for work and end up putting it on my TC at my desk during the day. But I usually see around a 2% drain overnight with 2 exchange accounts set to deliver mail immediately, and 3 other home accounts checking mail hourly. Today I used it for work (a few calls, and checking email) and it is at 30% right now (started at 7 am)

    There are days I make it all day with no issues, but there are other days I've got to charge it once (twice in HEAVY use days). It's normal. Remember that once you get your device you will want to let the battery drain way down before charging for the first few cycles. Your battery performance will gradually increase as your device settles and battery breaks in.

    Yes, this is what I have found to be the best also. And the battery seems to last a little better.
