But what do you do if you are using whatsapp? Imagine your boyfriend/girlfriend standing outside, texting you via whatsapp and then waiting....and you get the text 4 hours later!
Sound really great^^
Use Llama instead....it does the same and is free!
About those 1% per hour:
I get roughly 0.5% per hour in standby just by using wifi. When i'm home or at work, wifi is always on and that let's my 2G modem go into standby and save me a lot of juice (3G battery drain is much worst than 2G on my carrier)
If i'm not near a wifi hotspot or private network i can connect to, my phone automagically uses EDGE (2G Data). Llama activates it for me, so i don't have to worry about (de-)activating mobile data or wifi.
All in all i get two days out of the standard 1230mAh battery with around 20% screen on time and 70% wifi on time.
