Because when Wi – Fi is ON it drains the battery, so try to avoid the frequent use Wi – Fi setting. You can also use a function called Time – out, it is available in advanced Wi – Fi management screen in Android, you can accessed it  by navigating Wi – Fi Settings tab and then pressing the Menu button. From here, you’re able to manually select a timeout option for the Wi – Fi connection. After the given time it will automatically release the internet connection. By doing this you can also save the some amount of battery power. This feature is known as Wi – Fi sleep policy.
  • Avoid keeping brightness level at higher position. Major battery drain problem is the brightness level of the mobile. Maximum the phone brightness level drains the battery faster. So to avoid this major battery drain problem, keep the brightness level as low as viewable ideally.
  • HTC Inspire 4G Smartphone has GPS support. If the GPS is turned ON, it continuously searches for the location. Because of this it drain small amount battery power. By disabling the GPS you can save that small amount of battery power. Only turn ON the GPS when you require. It is recommended to use GPS only when you are outdoors.
  • In Android phones most of the applications have their check for updates setting as ON and they run in the background, which further drains the battery fast. So just disable these types of settings, which use frequent check for updates.
  • Whether or not you have limited applications that automatically check the internet, your HTC Inspire 4G is still active and checking almost all of the time. This is a part of the reason why you may see major battery drain even though the phone was idle for a while.
  • HTC Inspire 4G Smartphone comes with LED Flash light with autofocus facility. Only use the LED Flash when it is necessary. So mostly try to avoid LED Flash function when there is sufficient light available in the surroundings.

  1. Seriously, I wish they just made an upgraded battery you could buy!!!! That’s really what they need to do!

  2. I like my HTC Inspire 4G and definitely use it more that any of my past iPhones. Problem is I have to keep it plugged in 24/7 to have enough power to work this phone. I hate that my phone feels like the old time cord phone instead of feeling like a “smart” wireless one. Believe me I have tried all the tricks to save power but they don’t work. What’s the use of having all those features if you can have them fully operational at any given moment. HTC Inspire has the right idea but has many more years to perfect the “right’ phone!

    The Juice Defender Ultimate is the BEST APPLICATION I have EVER spent any money on. It has made a WORLD of difference in my battery life. Give it a try, you will NOT be sorry you did!

    • Wrong. I tried it on my HTC Inspire 4G. Every time my screen goes off, the internet does not work for a full 10 minutes. Any internet tabs I had opened go to “webpage cannot be displayed” and then won’t reload when the connection comes back. Stay away from Juice Defender — it does not work.

    I just went from the 2g flip phones to this phone, my wife choose an iphone 4.

  5. So you’re saying in order to get the battery to last longer, you basically have to turn everything off? What good is that? And remind me why this is better than an iPhone?

    • not everything needs to be turned Off but only the things which you don’t need can be turned Off!

      • But all those functions sound essential to what makes a Droid “smart” if you “don’t use it” and have to restart it when you do, what is the purpose?

  6. Despite all these tricks – my HTC survives barely a day – I’ve even tried Paid apps for cutting down on frivolous apps and background noise that eats up battery!! No use!!

    HTC needs to come up with more powerful babies to enjoy this baby!!
    Right now – I have a ferrari that behaves more like a Volkswagon because thats how Ive forced it to behave by turning off all the goodies!!!
