Samsung t809 battery saving tips


Please visit our new website at Samsung t809 FAQ

I'm looking for some battery saving tips from other Samsung t809 users. So far, I have tested (and verified) the following ways to conserve the precious battery life:

* Turn down your LCD brightness to the very minimum. It is still VERY bright. You can adjust the brightness by going to Menu -> Settings -> Display settings -> Brightness control and set it to 1

* Turn down your Backlight timing so that the backlight turns of faster rather than slower. You can adjust the backlight by going to Menu -> Settings -> Display settings -> Backlight. I set my "On" time to 15 sec and my "Dim" time to 5 sec. I wish I could set my On time lower, but that is the minimum.

* Turn off Bluetooth if you're not using it. I connect to EDGE/GPRS at least 20 times per day, so I leave my Bluetooth ON all day, and my battery life definitely suffers for it. If I find myself unable to charge for a long time, I likely will toggle the Bluetooth on and off as I need it.

* Here's an odd one: use the most basic ring tone possible, don't use vibrate, and turn your ring tone volume down. I actually seem to have saved significant battery life by doing this. I'm testing it long term to prove it, but it seems to be the case.

A few things I will also test: battery life with the T-Flash in and out of the phone.

  • Thanks! I'm trying something new every day and have been on the phone with T-Mobile and Samsung a few times. Hope we can figure something out soon.
