I have two suggestions:
1. Turn off the display while in work and listening to Pandora.
2. Stop killing tasks. That just takes more resources to restart them.
I am just coming off of a Blackberry storm and I used to use Pandora on it a lot. I never had a battery drain issue using it. As a matter of fact, I am finding the battery life on the storm to be much better than the droid. Maybe a few more firmware updates will fix this.
I could easily get 2 full days on the storm with heavy use. I am lucky to get a full day with the droid. The storm originally had a battery issue but was fixed with firware updates.
A little update.
I haven't been using Pandora, but when I do anything but text, my battery life is terrible
Today I took my phone off the charger at 10:30 am, listened to music for maybe an hour or so. Browsed the internet for a bit, and texted.
My phone was dead by 4:30pm.
I hardly do anything, and it dies. I'm afraid to play games on my phone.
But I just ordered another standard battery off amazon, thinking I should've splurged for the extended battery
This is weird. Back when i had my Motorola Droid i could go a full day of texting, calls, apps, radio and other things and still have a lot of battery left. Something you are doing is draining your battery like crazy.
Yea idk what it is.
3) Facebook/Twitter/Gaming widget
4) Beautiful Widget
5) random apps on my homescreens.
Nothing is constantly running.
Brightness at 25%
I keep Dolphin HD in the background but that's about it.
It boggles my mind that my battery dies in 6 hours with hardly any use.
