It’s been more than 1 –2 months I use this Xperia X10 mini pro. I am satisfied already with all the specifications given in this device. As their motto “mini but mighty”. The only thing left behind from enjoying the X10 mini pro from the best mini android phone is the limited battery life.
On normal usage with medium application usage and low backlight, X10 mini pro will stands about 24 hours max, you can improve it by not using some of the full-featured in this phone like “Accelerometer” – auto rotate, vibrate, auto-update for facebook, twitter, and most importantly Timescape (Battery eater).
I use so many recommended feature and settings on my Xperia X10 Mini Pro to improve it’s battery life. My first things to be done is :
1. Reducing the backlight to lowest
2.Turn off Accelerometer –> Settings | Sound & Display | set Orientation (OFF) and set Animation (OFF)
3. Turn off all the data coverage ( Use only 2G / GSM ONLY )
a. Settings | Data Synchronization | Background Data (OFF)
b. Settings | Wireless Control | Mobile Networks | Data Traffic (OFF) & set Network Mode (GSM ONLY)
c. Turn off all the wifi, GPS and bluetooth, use as needed.
4. Installing “ADW LAUNCHER” –> UI Replacement for Xperia default battery eater one. After Installing, You should make it be default launcher to see the best performance of it.
5. Installing “System Panel Lite” –> System management, Best things to have on your Xperia X10 Mini Pro. (BATTERY BOOST)
With these settings, I found it very nice for my Xperia X10 Mini Pro. I use it for normal, the device stands for about 1 day 20 hours, very impressive. You can’t find any application that would made your phone better. When you use for high performance, I believe it will stands about 1 day, despite the normal Sony Ericsson Launcher will eat your battery life. Be careful with the Timescape, You can monitor the running applications that use most of your CPU performance (Battery eater). With System Panel, You should not have to close everything. Just leave it there and let the System panel handle it. I hope it will be useful, Any better Ideas will be accepted though. Thanks
