I changed my home screen from Orange 2 to Full, and I swear my battery life has now improved dramatically.

In addition, the phone has DEFINITELY sped up.

This is not logical, but seems to be the case.

Can anyone else try this and see if they have similar results?

I've read elsewhere several reports of people saying changing from one of the Orange layouts to the generic MS ones speeds the phone up a lot.

Hi,

I tried this after your suggestion in the thread I started.

Does seem faster.. I'll agree

Not tested battery life though

Just as an aside on the thread, I charged my phone up about 18 hours ago - and after a few phone calls, probably 15 mins in all and some SMS's it's still showing 3 bars!

Hopefully this might mean that battery life improves after a few charges.

Strange thing, i live a long ways from an Orange station and when a home my phone changes network very often and as far as i can tell the phone light up the backlight when it changes network, it could explain when my battry life at home is worse than at work.

Oh, and battery life also seem shorter when i keep the phone in the beltpouch

anyone else noticed that ?

I think you'll find that the button's press against the case, which keeps the backlight on so you end up with a drained battery
