u can use power toggles to switch off data connection and others to save battery when u r not using em.
use a task manager(i use all in one toolbox) to close running apps.

'Using Data connection consumes more charge than even doing a normal call. So if your phone says that it can do 6 hours of TalkTime on full charge then browsing net (downloading mostly) will drain the battery in just 4-5 hours'
So if you are getting to 50% charge even after 3 hours, then you are actually experiencing good battery backup.

I purchased Xperia P few days ago thru souq.com in UAE.
I charged the phone to 100% and watched youtube, downloaded softwr thru play store and within 3 hrs the battery charge came below 50%. I'm deeply worried.
Please give ur suggestion to improve battery life

Any kind of material between Your skin and screen will prevent accidental screen activation, and it cannot do any harm to your touchscreen, it can only protect it (less or more depanding on how hard protection is).

ICS is way better, and more responsive than GB, so it is highly recommended to upgrade to ICS.

If you have some issues after upgrading, then it's not ICS related but rather specific to your smartphone. Do full backup, repair your phone through SUS, restore data only and install programs manually (avoid battery and task utilities).

And next time don't blame OS for your specific troubles.

I bought my Xperia P 4days back, and it's a fantastic choice. Beautiful Design, ICS OS, and reasonable price are major positives. Battery life is good enough for an average user like myself. Highly recommended.

Beside, different (higher) firmware numbers doesn't necessarily means newer firmware because there are dozen different numbered firmwares with same OS version (different numbers means different region, or something specific to certain provider etc.)

P.S. Any kind of screen protection (hard case, sleeve...) will prevent accidental activation of your screen when you put it in your pocket with thin fibre (during summer).

i recommend everyone to upgrade to 6.1.1.B.1.75 as it made my phone run more smoothly with improved battery life. for those who have problems with battery life, aside from those already mentioned (i.e. widgets), you can try to limit background processes to 4 in the developer options. others set it to 1-2. multitasking will be limited once this is set but battery life does improve (well it did for me). i prefer 4 since 1-2 is extremely limited, i can still multitask appropriately with 4 set.
