    So my display seems to use the most of my battery power. What can I do to keep it from consuming so much? Thanks!

    Display takes up the most battery power. What you can do is not check it every couple seconds:) Turning off automatic brightness and manually adjusting it yourself is the second best thing to do.

    Exactly what phone model do you have?

    yea what dezymond said is correct. put a power widget on your homescreen and make sure that display is off all the way, the widget makes it easy to turn up when your outside and you cant see your droid screen AT ALL:D.

    As a fellow Inc owner, I can attest to the horrible battery life.

    The best advice is to not look at your phone every 5 minutes. The good thing is we have a notification LED, very helpful, so I only look at it when that is on or if I have something to do. To save even more battery for texting, while I'm at home I use MightyText. The app lets you text from your computer without even turning the phone screen on so that saves a ton of battery as well.

    Other than getting an extended battery and not looking at your phone every couple minutes, it's quite a challenge to maximize the battery of our phones. And yes it's normal to see the display usages hovering around 60%, mine is consistently 57% or higher
