I have a new Galaxy Ace and am finding the battery life not so good. I have disables wifi and GPS and turned the brightness down to try and save some battery life. I've been reading about an app called Juice Defender. Could someone please help me? Many thanks

Out of the box, should be about a day long charge.

But a new user tends to have the screen on for more time than later and may need to top up the charge during the day.

Is this your first Ace?

Hi Bob, thanks for your reply. Yes it's my first Ace and my first Android.. I got it a couple of days ago and charged it until it told me it was fully charged then I unplugged it. I think I should have left it on charge longer. What do you advise I do now? I had to charge it yesterday and again today.

My android phones (let me explain later) all go on the charger when I get home or at the office. If you got home and charged it then unplugged it, overnight it will eat away at the time you would get the next day.

I'm a little lucky as the office is working on apps so I always want a full charge when I'm testing. So when I'm done, back onto the charger it goes.

So have I left it too late to give it a full 24 hour charge? (many thanks for all your help with this)

As I read your post above.

It sounds as if you unplugged it when the charge finished rather than leave it on the charger overnight so you start the day with a less than full charge.

Try plugging it in overnight and take it off as you leave in the morning.

I found such apps to actually use more power.

I use the old KISS method. Uninstall what ever I don't use and then set the screen time out lower than what I really wanted.
