Smart phone battery life – the lesson I learned from a tech newbie

Normally I don’t think anything of charging my phone every day, of having it die by 6pm. And that’s what happened day one of my new Windows 8 Nokia Lumia 822. However, in that same period my husband’s new smart phone went through very little battery. Why did his last so much longer? The only difference between mine and his usage is that I have many email accounts synced. Oh…

So this morning I adjusted it so my emails would only update every two hours. I’m happy to say that it worked! I should have done this a year ago! In fact I might set some email accounts to only manual downloading. Then I can sync every few days. I still have plenty of power left for my car ride home tonight.

I’ll tell you about my new phone soon.
