4.0 out of 5 stars Battery?, 9 Mar 2010
This review is from: Nokia N900 Sim Free Mobile Computer with Maemo 5 Software (Wireless Phone Accessory)
I do agree on all accounts given here... but no one really talks about battery life...

I have been using this phone since last 4 days... a call or two during the day but the battery drains very rapidly... By afternoon I have one fourth of it left... come evening there is about one bar euivalent left...! I do have the AP news and the Facebook widget on... but nothing else...!!!

Is anyone else here having similar problems?

Most 3G phones hog the battery especially if the coverage is bad like in elevators, underground etc. When this happens the phone goes into a constant search and this hogs the battery. I switched off the 3G mode to GSM mode in my N900 and battery now lasts 18-20 hours with an always ON data plan on 2.5G (edge). I have gtalk, skype and an exchange server sync every 15 minutes. The phone does not search for the 3G network and therefore saves battery. I had faced similar issues on the iphone and also my HTC devices. This is a common problem with most 3G devices.

I tried to find 3G mode to switch it off, I cannot find it, can you please help? I have problems with the battery, luckily not at his extent, but I would like to prolong the usage if I can.

Thanks

you can download an app from application manager that allows you to turn 3g off,very easy.

Get a free or Cheap Task Manager from the Ovi Store saves system memory and battery, saves crashes, turn off bluetooth, turn off wifi and gps, go from 3G to GSM, upgrade firmware regularly, for best advice and How To's goto http://discussions.nokia.co.uk
