Re: Smartphones run for days, no need for "ancient Nokia" for better standby time

Unfortunately smartphones' batteries don't last as long in standby, mainly because they're usually doing things (like checking emails, checking for social network updates, uploading your photos) when they're not actively being used.

Turn off background sync and it can last quite a few days.
