the more email accounts, live tiles, info and apps the phone has to sync in real time, the more it will consume battery. minimize the live tile apps on your phone and log off from facebook/windows live when you don't need to use it.

I found after upgrading to Mango on my Trophy the battery life seemed to plummet, but after a few charge / discharge cycles its seems to be back to what it was pre-Mango. I'd have to agree with the comments about IE9 too...the scrolling and zooming is so smooth, one of the best features IMO.

Ropenuts: Also Zune does not see my phone anymore.. I downloaded Zune ver 4.8 and all. Doesn't get seen....


I have this on my laptop but my home PC is fine and see's and syncs with my focus correctly. I read a post somewhere saying it is to do with the zune driver and uninstalling zune completly and reinstalling may fix it, Another person said they had to reset their phone to get their pc and beta zune to recognise the phone O_o

One of my biggest peeves with WP7 still exists which is that we only have a single volume :( so if im playing a game for instance and I turn the volume down low if I forget to turn it back up I may miss my alarm going off or a phone call etc :/ imo ring/text/games/media should be seperate volumes like android.

^ The single volume is prob my biggest peeve as well with wp7. They really need to fix that issue. Every night, I put my phone on silent because of this cause I don't want to be woken up by my work emails or personal emails sound.

Damn I don't want to reset my phone. Gutted. I might just have to live with it until Mango is available. Shouldn't be too hard really.


The volume thing is a pain in the ass. I find the volume on my Omnia way too loud to begin with. I can't like lay in bed with my gf tryin to sleep and have any volume on my phone cos it's just way too loud! The jump from silent to the lowest volume is crazy!!

I don't think a reset is needed though, as I said it works on my home pc but not my laptop which indicates its a pc driver issue rather than a phone issue otherwise it shouldnt work on either of my computers.
