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?
