    Hello -Rocky

    Hello! I've been lurking through these forums for quite a bit the past few days and finally decided to make an account. I have a motorola droid which I find superb. The fact that it has a keyboard makes it much better than most other phones imo. Especially when flash is released. I do have a question though. Should I keep my backlight off most of the time or does it not use that much battery? I currently have it off but I'm not sure whether it makes a difference or not and would of course rather having it on.

    Welcome, I keep mine on Auto. Seems to do well...

    Welcome Rocky..glad you finally registered : )

    Yes leaving the backlight off will save some battery BUT to what extent I personally do not know. I haven't ran the device with it on then off to see the difference. Sorry I am not able to help you on that one.

    With that said I hope you enjoy your stay here. Make yourself at home.

    Enjoy

    check out some of the battery life threads for a real answer.. but basically, your screen is your biggest battery killer. choose a light background (so you can see your icons) and turn the brightness all the way down. there are also apps like screebl that will help.

    I use the power control widget that comes stock with the phone. When im in school I turn it off or if my battery is low. If I want to show off my droid I turn it up all the way or if im watching a video its all the way.

    To addjust brightness on power control it's the very far icon to the right that has a sun.

    Hmm... Power control... Not to sure where that is. I don't see it in settings either.
    Oh and almost forgot! While we're here, anyone know if there is an app somewhere that can run .mkv video's? I've had trouble converting them to .mp4's

    Sorry dude maybe I made that unclear...

    1. make a horizontal 1x4 space on one of your screens
    2. long press in that area
    3. select widgets
    4. scroll down and look for "power control"

    Its not an app it's a widget it's really helpful.

    Hopefully you find it, im not sure of a good video converter yet.
