    I must have posted before I saw that. But thats good information also. I'll have to do some research on these batteries.

    large font might help but a beer and a deep sigh is more soothing

    Do you know how Android works? Does it look at current or voltage to determine the battery level? There might be some truth behind this depending how Android handles it.

    Methinks the OP had never fully charged his phone before. Hence the longer last battery after charging longer

    Batteries are batteries. The OS doesn't change the technology. Besides, for what the OP mentioned to be accurate even for old tech, it required the battery to be fully discharged, THEN fully charged.

    You are ABSOLUTELY INCORRECT.

    The battery does not have memory like the old batteries from several years ago ... it does, however, have circuitry (actually a processor for charging) that need to be calibrated.

    Then maybe you should be ABSOLUTELY CORRECT by discharging your battery, and THEN fully charging it. Otherwise, its NOT being calibrated.


    See? Caps are anoying.

    I find that not using my phone extends the battery life greatly

    seriously though, how can you charge it beyond what it accepts? The phone stops charging when it 'thinks' it's fully charged, no?
