HTC HD2 'need not run flat'
26 March 2010 — 6:04 PM
Consumers could be tempted to recycle their old mobile phone for cash to put towards a new smartphone handset and could do so with Envirofone.
However, some people may be concerned that their new phone will not be as reliable in terms of battery life.
Phones such as the HTC HD2 have a large screen and a number of features, all of which could be having an impact on how long it is until the device runs flat.
Website Know Your Mobile has suggested that users of the HTC HD2 that would like to save battery power should turn off Wi-Fi when it is not in use and said "if you're not connected to the internet or you're out of range - if you're using 3G, there's no need to have it on".
It added the same applies for Bluetooth as it is "massively power consuming" and will be searching for a connection even when you do not need it to.
Another phone to consider could be the HTC Desire, as the website 3G.co.uk recently suggested it is "virtually the same smartphone as the Google Nexus One and features the Android Eclair operating system and HTC Sense".
