Power save function on N8

Hey people,

Been doing a few tests recently with power save and I've come to a conclusion that it's rubbish and shouldn't be used. Sorry if this is old news but I had a quick search and couldn't find anything.

My phone basically lasted just under 2 days with light usage activating power save when I went to sleep. Went to bed with a full battery, woke up with 1 bar gone!

I then did another full charge and didn't use power save at night. I have just charged my phone after almost 6 days, again with light usage. 5-10 texts a day, checking email, football results etc a few short phone calls and a bit of camera use plus watching video's I have recorded!

So what's up with that then? Power save my a**e.

At first I thought it was nokia battery monitor doing it so I un-insatalled it. I have just re-installed it and am going to test now to see if can last another 5-6 days. I guess it depends on my usage. Battery monitor is quoting me just over 2 days usage time.

5-6 days usage time for a smart phone though is awesome. I have to congratulate Nokia for that.
