arif, 02 Feb 2011this phone bad battryTo prolong BATTERY life:
1) Disable WI-FI ( not unless you need it)
3) Avoid using LIVE WALLPAPER
4) Select GSM instead of 3G (not unless you need 3G)
5) Disable BLUETOOTH
6) Download the application called QUICK SETTINGS - to manage your connections easily

Everything will be sweet.

Have fun ... Goodluck!

Hi Guys,

I recently just got the Desire HD and I was wanting to know how do I stop applications (multi-tasking) running in the background so there not draining the battery. I know I can restart the phone and kill apps but I don't want to be doing that everytime I"m finished using the phone.

I'm having problem with auto rotate screen. When I tick the option, my screen will be landscape and no longer portrait even if I put my phone portrait. How to solve it? If i untick it, the phone definitely will stay portrait even if I put it on landscape. Kindly help.

Tried today both Desire HD and Galaxy S. Galaxy is like a cheap plastic, not bad, but don`t give me a feeling of holding a flagship phone. HTC is way better, solid, bit heavy, but ok. Another bad thing about Samsung is that it started to lag when I tried it.

felicia, 02 Feb 2011Hi all. Need your great help here. I just got my HDH yesterday. ... moreIt'll take a few days for your battery to reach normal batterytime. Just keep using it. Apps that aren't active and doesn't show up in the statusbar aren't using the battery even though they might appear in the running apps list. There are task killers on Android Market but I would avoid those.

  • 0v0

The battery is great with me. 3 days of normal use with wi-fi when needed & playing around...very happy with the device...
