    My battery sucks on 232. Any ideas on improving battery life?

    I'm on 232 with phenomenal battery life. I use two smart actions. One kills wifi from 7a to 7p M-F (commute and work) the other kills everything from midnight to 5am Sun-Thurs. (sleep time)

    Can you determine what exactly is using all of your power? There might be a rogue app or something.

    How long does your battery last now as compared to with 905?
