I don't see any reasons why people are telling about how they're battery doesn't last as long as it used to do. I've been almost 14 hours on battery now. 74% left and I would count myself as a heavy user. Music at least 3 hours a day, Web browsing, gaming, phone calls, texting and stuff. Seems my battery lasts just the same 2 days easily on battery..

People install all these funky apps like Google+, Foursquare and other GPS, Wifi, Bluetooth, etc. using apps... Batt discharge should only be tested on stock ROMs without any apps...

SO this GP{U driver is NOT responsible for my battery drain last night

Thank you (name of topic starter)

Just changed drivers, have no idea what was my result with stock driver, but now it is 284/1144 2D/3D, so it works.

Tryed Asphalt (the one Market gives away for 0,10$) hour ago - it was a bit lagy, now it runs smoother without any lags. GoLauncher home screen performance increased, too. Maybe that is just.placebo effect, but i really see the difference.

Just bought Asphalt 6 for 10p and the Bistards charged me £4.99 so its been refunded.....lol

ive just been playing NFS:Hot Pursuit for 1 hour and 20mins my battery was at 78% its now at 55% so im well impressed that was an hour and 20mins solid gaming.

Thank you :0)

I find it quite weird that there are lots of people saying this affects battery life. Meanwhile I myself and many other say this doesn't have an effect. I'll post a screenshot with my battery stats later when I get home.

We should make a test with completely stock ROM before and after installing the drivers. Just like nikagl said before.
