    So what’s the real difference between Performance Mode, Smart Mode and Battery Saver Mode? Im set on the default Smart Mode. I was curious to what really was going on behind the scenes (technically) if I selected one of the other modes.

    Thanks all!

    Smart mode just allows for the data time out whenever you choose, and does the auto dim on screen. I thought that was the way to go but I run performance mode all the time and my battery is the same as when I tried the other modes.

    The other modes allow you to disable the 3G connection after a designated period of time (you choose how long with Smart mode, and 15 minutes with Battery Saver)

    Performance forces the 3G connection to stay active 24/7.

    So if you can't put your phone down for more than 10 seconds, you wouldn't see a difference and may as well run it in Performance mode. However if you maybe keep yourself occupied for say 30-60 minutes without touching your phone, stick with Smart mode and Data off after 15 minutes. It really makes a big difference over the course of a day if you can't reach a charger for hours on end.

    I don't mess with the brightness thing as I prefer to manually keep my brightness on under the bare minimum anyways lol.
