So I Rooted my wife's DInc the other day and then used Root Explorer to rename and move Bloatware to the SD Card. I don't have the full list of programs that I removed, but it had to be close to 90%, if not 100% of the removable Bloat from her phone. She doesn't have a ton loaded onto her phone as far as widgets. She's not a heavy user, but likes to text. Only one email account (POP) that I think is set to poll every 30 minutes for email. I asked her how her battery was after root and bloat removal and she said that she didn't notice any change for the better. When I get home, I will post the list of programs I removed, but until then, anyone have any idea why with the same use and less/no bloat, why the battery didn't improve?
