    They probably have data turned off and no email syncing, also I would not have anything set to auto end you are just wasting battery there.

    Its called fine print lol. The device used to make that reference didn't have data or any of the bloat junk weighing it down.

    I don't believe it either. This is like the car manufactures claim for gas mileage.

    Exactly they always use the highest number under the best possible case scenario that will more than likely never be duplicated out in a real world environment.

    how would auto end be wasting battery. I thought it was to save the battery by turning stuff off that does not need to be on?

    It depends on what you auto end. So many apps automatically start right back up immediately after they're turned off so the auto end keeps turning it off again just to have it restart again and this never ending process drains your battery.

    Ahhh, HELP! :-O

    Apps that are set to sync, many widgets, many depend on how you have them set up.

    Set everything to auto kill. It only kills after the screen goes off for two mins.

    Use smart actions battery extender. When the screen times out it will kill background data, therefore your phone won't be looking for updates all the time. However right after you wake it, it will pull down pic messages and emails if any are out there.

    Also, when active, delete the motion rule in battery extender, I also deleted the kill GPS rule.

    Turn down your screen brightness.
