    Another thought, Fastboot is enabled by default. You can try disabling fastboot, as, some apps don't play nice with fastboot.

    dude the battery life is amazing.

    I have instagram, Facebook, twitter and all other services on. My battery life at work lasted 12 hours and then when i got home I was looking for wallpaper the entire time while watching the Giants vs Redskins game. The standby time is also amazing. I haven't been happier. If this batter was 2500, it would be even more amazing

    you seem to have hit the tri-fecta of crappy battery life devices the the Dinc, T-bolt and Gnex. everything is relative.

    Not sure if anyone has posted this yet, but the camera issue you are having is a "feature" of the phone, if you leave the camera app running then power off the screen or if you open the camera and not exit the application it will continue to run which is why you are seeing 22% of your battery going to camera. Its a "never miss a picture" feature. Try killing the camera with the app switcher ( not a task killer as they will actually cause more harm then good)

    Great tips overall. I just wanted to note that while using a dark wallpaper on SAMOLED screens saves battery (as it turns off those individual black pixels), it won't do anything for LCD displays like on the DNA, which are backlit.

    Great points indeed! Only disagreement I have is some of the Google services. At least in my testing Gtalk, G+ and Google Now all used very little battery life across many of my devices. I also typically leave NFC on and it's completely dormant during non-use. Don't see it being a problem either.

    I set mine to 4. I set it to 4 on my gs3 also. Seems to work well. No adverse effects. Beats having 20-30 processes cooking in the background

    It's good to see that some things about HTC don't change. This is how it is with the Thunderbolt. Some phones use the power button and home button to take a screen shot, while others, like mine, use the power button and volume down. I'd love to know why it's different.

    You have to click the power and volume down at the same time and hold for 2 sec. However, this power and home is easy as well, thanks for sharing that!

    The both work, however the Power + Home Button method does not show the saved screenshot in the notification area, nor does it allow for quick sharing of it. The Power + Volume Down method does, so I prefer that way.
