    Question Photon Specific Battery Tips/Tricks/Problems

    We all have had our Photons for a week to 10 days so I wanted to see what is/isn't working in terms of battery life. A lot of people are talking about 2-3% per hour (I wish I'm closer to 5-10 depending on what I do). I don't have a lot running:
    Two Widgets - Weather (Fancy Widget Pro) and Sound Hound
    GMail - 3 accounts synching one with a few emails a day, the other 2 accounts don't get much mail.
    No Social Network integration (I do have the standalone Facebook app) with very infrequent updates
    Plume for Twitter - 3 Hour auto refresh
    4G WiFi and GPS are all turned off - BT is on and connected about 2 hours a day.

    I'm not inclined to think its a rouge app since nothing is captured in the battery use (80% of my battery use is Display and Phone Idle) another 8-10 is Cell Standby. If I play Angry Birds for 25-30 minutes my battery is just destroyed (but only represents 4%).

    Any thoughts, concerns, similar experiences, etc?

    I've been borderline addicting to getting new cell phones since 1998

    If you changed launcher, clear out BLUR, it still runs in the background.

    Also, disable the Facebook notifications, that run every hour. A lot of the account syncing is way too frequent.

    Turn ON wifi if you have a connection. (Disables 3G if it finds it)

    Disable push. Change it to sync like every 4 hours.

    DISABLE PUSH. And check all running services. And switch to the Maximum Saver profile.

    My best tip is at night or during the day when your sleeping set the battery mode to the maximim saver. Ive had it on that every night and it depletes mayne 1 or 2% during during the night
