    Has anyone noticed a drastic change in battery life by underclocking the droid x (such as with screen off and low battery)? I've read that the droid x already manages processor speeds natively so underclocking with something like SetCPU won't make a difference. Anyone care to chime in wtih experience?
    thanks

    This is correct with all major Android based phones at present. But to really see a difference, a custom Low Voltage kernel is probably the single largest way to get more battery life.

    You can undervolt your phone manually using the tools provided in the droid x overclock thread in this forum. I run stock frequency but undervolt by about half, to max 34vsel. I now see about 1.5-2x more battery life.

    not to be a whipper snapper, but most of the energy goes to display, so how could undervolting get you 50%+ batterylife? you mean 50%+ standby?

    I mean that under normal usage (I also keep the screen at min brightness), I can use the phone for twice as long without charging, i.e. uptime is doubled.
