Hi, please dont buy this phone.. Horrible battery backup and it restarts again and again, actually gets into a restart loop. Tough to manage, one cant rely, battery drains out in 15 minutes at times. Top of that service center guys are least bothered to solve the problem. They will just reload the software every time you go there. Honest review: Phone : 8/10, Company 5/10, after sales services 1/10.
What can I do so that my battery can hold longer? It's battery life does not hold so long!

ryan17, 19 Oct 2012the phone is good but the battery lets it down battery doesnt even last a day and this is the ... moreTurn DOWN the backlight brightness to 10% and turn OFF the automatic backlight dim/adjust function. The screen will look the same as the defaulted battery hogging 50% bright and auto dim on.
Doing this improved my battery life. Also upgrade to 7.1 and turn ON application manager which closes unused apps that run permanently in the background. Also some apps automatically turn back on after you close them so keep checking to see what apps are running and close them. Also the way your Cellular Carrier may have your phone device set up or registered may hog your battery resources since the phone may have chatter between it and your cell service provider. I know with T-Mobile service in the USA something they use or have always 'chatter' with my devices.
7.1 offers application management and wifi hotspot to the 9790. the application management when switched on will improve you battery life substantially since it will automatically monitor and close background apps to help battery life. I had 7.0 for the day I picked up my phone and the lastest fall 2012 7.1 bundle was worth the upgrade. Older versions of 7.1 are buggy so look for the recent 7.1 that Rim released sept/oct 2012.
