Hah, speaking of battery life, i was reading the other day that Moto reckon this thing will get THIRTY DAYS standby.
And its not just moto, seriously, how do manufacturers get away with quoting such rediculous numbers for standby times of mobile handsets? When has anyone had more than 5 or maybe 6 days? The only time i see HTC handsets get more than a day or two is with the radio off and not touching it!
Just a pet peeve of mine
Well, the standby time means how long the battery lasts when it's only
in standby (which actually does
make sense given its name, right?).
Actually, I once did a test on my C500, that is listed as having a standby time of 140 hours. With very few calls and texts (and not tweaking the screen to turn off quickly or any other optimization) it lasted 130 hours. Haven't tested other phones, though, and I doubt the Q9h will keep up for thirty days, even if it is indeed listed as being able to do that.
