Not even in airplane mode this phone won't last 18 days 🙂

 

I know this is not standby time but:

 

I have a Rogers X10 and with the original firmware the battery lasted around 16h with less than 10min + 10 SMS/day and wifi on.

With the Rogers R2BA020 and wifi/gps/bluetooth off and data on the battery is drained in about 2 days... max. 3 days if i don't listen music or browse the net.

I'd suggest downloading Advanced Task Killer, works great just ensure to run it frequently.

 

Hopefully Rogers publically launches the R2BA023 firmware soon as it really does help battery life quite a bit.

The X10 gets nowhere near its advertised talk and standby time. I'm not sure how they arrived at those outlandish numbers. I got about 12 hours of battery life out of the phone with normal use, which was pretty pitiful. However, I installed some monitoring software on the phone and it seemed that the problem (mainly) was the phone was being prevented from going into standby mode from an application on the phone.

 

That application happened to be the Launcher that comes on the phone (Rachel) and if you replace it with ADW Launcher or my personal favourite, Helix Launcher (Donut version) you will notice a fair improvement in your battery life. I now receive 25-30 hours of battery life from a single charge with normal use.

 

It also helps to update to the R2*20 firmware rather than the stock R1*14, but even then if you're still running Rachel you're not going to notice a really big improvement. Replacing the launcher is your best bet.

You are suggesting something wrong.

Android is doing is own memory management.
Killing apps with ATK won't improve the batter because those apps will be restated again and again by the system.

Also, even if you root your phone and install a software to stop this applications at boot, won't help much because you have to pay attention what apps you stop/kill.

If you kill apps you use daily, you do more damage by killing them.

What helps is: keep wifi off but as i said, not even in airplane mode this phone won't last 18 days 🙂

If you have your X10 rooted, you can simply uninstall the programs always running (moxier, etc), so that should solve the issue. Otherwise, even if you run ATK once every few hours, it will help, even if just a little.

Re: Sony Ericsson Xperia X10

Owning the X10 for a bit i found the best solution was changing you luncher,

switching to ADW doubled my battery life.

still sold the phone though, it was slow, buggy, and the keyboard was brutal, no multi touch, and the fact that everything had to be done through time scapre for contacts, and all media through media scape was super annoying.



if your in the market for an Android device i do not suggest this phone,

i am very happy wtih the Acer Liquid E

bonus that it already has android 2.1 and scheduled to get 2.2 by october

no set date or time except for 4th quarter for the X10 to get 2.1

You do realize that you don't have to use either Timescape or Mediascape, correct? I haven't touched either app and I can play music and look at my contacts just fine.

 

2.1 on Xperia X10 in Q3 of this year. Your info is outdated.

Please rogers update the x10 to at least 2.1, pleeaaasseee....

You will probably start to see most droid phones getting OS updates at the end of sept/oct after all the new driod phones are released for the back to school phase.  I believe the Spica update to 2.1 is dropping at the end of this month so its just a matter of time before old devices are updated.

Re: Sony Ericsson Xperia X10

Sony Ericsson has stated that 2.1 will be released in Q3 2010 which means either this month or next. With Sony, that usually means right near the end of the deadline, so most likely September.

 

There are a few videos of 2.1 running on the Xperia X10 on youtube which look pretty nice. The curved slide to unlock has been replaced with a more traditional lock screen. Other than that there don't seem to be many cosmetic changes.

 

The problem with the update process is that even with SE releasing 2.1 in September or even this month (not likely) is that Rogers has to be the one to actually give it the stamp of approval and roll it out. To put this into perspective, since the last update to the 020 firmware, SE has released 6 additional patches which we have not seen. We'll see how they handle a major update, but so far I'm not too optimistic.

Every major update has its problems, I remember a couple with the iPhone that were usually fixed within a day or two, at first there will be some reliability issues but it should be fine.

Re: Sony Ericsson Xperia X10

Rogers has zero say in the availability of iOS patches. Those are released by Apple and not through a carrier or with the carriers approval, which is the proper way to do things.

Im not sure when you got the X10, but there was a patch released back in July for the X10 that helps with battery life and otherwise general performance. You can go to www.sonyericsson.com/updateservice for the latest software and updates, but be sure to back up anything you cant afford to lose. Here is a walkthrough http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SdlT4VHim0c for doing it right over the phone.

Last we heard from SE, the 2.1 patch should be coming in September to all X10 devices.

It is unlikely that Rogers prevent any release of this patch longer than needed since it has major updates, both on features but also battery life....especially if most people are on R2BA016 or even R2BA020 as opposed to the current R2BA026 firmware versions.

Generally, companies do not release dates (including specific months) unless they are dead certain they can make it, so I do believe 2.1 will be here sometime in Sept.

Re: Sony Ericsson Xperia X10

My money is on SE to release it late September and for Rogers to push it out late October. Keep in mind that we never received the R2BA016 update and we received the R2BA020 update weeks after European and Asian providers.

Re: Sony Ericsson Xperia X10

You never recieved the 016 update? Hmm, mine came with it already installed. So you updated right to 020?

Anywho, i guess time will tell what happens with the 2.1 update. My real question is if we'll get Froyo (2.2).

Re: Sony Ericsson Xperia X10

steveh

014 -> 020

 

As far as I can tell this is how it was for all Rogers devices. Perhaps SE shipped some more recent devices with 016 installed by default, but I never had the option to update to that.

 

SE has already stated that the X10 will be updated to 2.2 on their product blog. I'm hoping that 3.0 will also be supported. After this Google should be implementing their one major update a year scheme so it will give these phones a pretty long support life.

Re: Sony Ericsson Xperia X10

James

Its very unlikely we'll get 3.0.

Once SE gets around to getting us 2.2, it wont be until mid 2011, 3.0 i can't guess will be until late 2011 at earliest. By that time, they will push 3.0 onto their newest phones.

Rumor has it they are in late development stages of a new phone that will have 3.0 built right into it. Its a hybrid of a Samsung Galaxy and a PSP. No lie.

I'm certain it's not a hybrid including a Samsung Galaxy phone. 🙂
