    tune bluetooth etc off, turn screen backlight to auto or dark, use few 'constantly online' gadgets, widgets or applets.

    ICS so far adds some settings, some screens, not much more. Not faster. I enabled GPU forced accelleration and some app(lication)s would hang, not sure if it was that setting or not. Back to defaults.

    Turn off 4g or mobile data completely. Turn off background and auto sync if data is a must to be on all the time.

    When I'm in class/at work, I leave data and WiFi off. I can't check my phone anyway, so why do I care about new emails? I turn data back on after class/work and go about my day.

    Depends if you want applications fully backed up (usefull for payed ones, I suppose) or your DATA.
    I did a whipe and reinstalled a previous android firmware and later ICS, and all my data (on SD card) was there, plus Supernote was reinstalled automatically (?) and my notes were there...

    So there are backup programms for data only, and also for applications.

    The Backside IHO works fine with my LG Optimus V. Finally 2.3.7 on my phone. Virgin Mobile haven't release the 2.3.X updates yet.

    Well my phone is showing its age and that its on its way out. After a long weekend for crashes and hard freezes, I decided to go back to the original stock rom with only root. So far is running OK but only time will tell now. :(

    Apart from some better menu options, ICS is not better on my Transformer, Android3.21 was as stable as it could be.

    Edit: or maybe it the 'apps' that are not ready for ICS...

    My Motorola Atrix arrived today, paid £150 second hand. The screen is in great condition and thats what i was looking for, back cover has some minor surface scratches from general use but overall was well looked after.

    This is my first experience with Android, powerful wee phone has a Tegra 2 dual core and 1gb of ram.

    Just waiting on my new Giff Gaff sim card; 250mins unlimited data and texts (no limits at all, no 1gb of data or 3000 text limit) all for £10 a month on pay as you go, i also get to spend the £10 top up. If one month i decide i dont need to top up or want a new sim i can just do that as im not locked into a contract. Can also top up £15 or £20 for the same deal but with more mins. They let you top up on their website or set up a rolling payment, can also just old fashioned go to a shop and buy a voucher.

    Is that in the USA? Because I have Virgin Mobile and I pay $35 every month no contract, I have 300 minutes and unlimited text and data.

    No that carrier is in the UK, interestingly my phone is an AT&T mobile (although rooted and unlocked). In the UK at least when offered unlimted texts or data it has a limit, its usually 3000 or 5000 texts with some sort of down/upload data limit, now to me that is a lot for any one user but Giff Gaff do offer totally unlimited texts and data. The data interests me texts not so much.

    Been using the Atrix for a while its a nice mobile but sucks for battery useage. Im using the darkside rom that came preinstalled probably will upgrade to the Nottachtrix rom which is also based on official OTA updates.

    VLC Beta doesn't work with the Atrix which is rubbish but eventually i guess it'll get fixed.

    Ok, since my droids erratic behavior as of late, I wanted to test the new SD 10 gingerbread with CM7 stock kernel and I must say that it has fixed a lot of issues. The speed is awesome and since flashing I have only had one hard lock that required a battery pull but otherwise it has been smooth.

    I've been using a Galaxy SII since October and my contract is coming up for renewal so I'm going to wait for the Galaxy SIII, I'll have to try and get the money first lol. I can't really think of much to improve on the SII. A wider field of view on the camera and 720p60 would be nice. Stereo speakers, or a louder/clearer mono speaker would be nice too.

    I'll be happy once I can get a vanilla ICS Rom on it, I just dislike TouchWiz. It would be cool if users were given a choice of a Vanilla or manufacturer Rom.

    Pretty sweet deal there on the phone! Looks nice.

    Can anyone tell me when (if) ICS is going to come to the HTC Desire?

    I look and there are Root methods but the camera doesn't work on a lot of them. I really hope HTC don't bend over the desire AGAIN, though I'm not holding out on much.

    Damn HTC. Never again.
