How to improve battery life on the HTC Surround Empty How to improve battery life on the HTC Surround

Smartphones are well-known for their limited battery life and although the HTC Surround features an impressive 1500mAh battery, it won't last forever.

Here are our top tips for maximizing battery life.
Reduce the time before the screen turns off

You can set your HTC Surround to have a shorter screen time-out duration and set your phone to lock automatically so that large 4-inch screen doesn't drain power. To do this, swipe left to the app list and then settings. Select Lock & wallpaper to set up a lock password. Select Screen time-out from the same menu to extend the time-out duration.
Lower the screen brightness setting

The brighter you have your screen, the quicker you'll find power drains from your phone. Select Settings from the Apps list and navigate to Brightness. Turn off Automatically adjust and select the level you want the screen brightness to stay on.
Use a dark background theme

The lighter the background image is, the more power the screen will use. Select a background image with darker colours to prevent battery power draining too fast.
Sync music and pictures on your computer

Use the Zune software or Windows Phone 7 Connect for Mac to sync your images and music with your computer. Doing this over the air can reduce battery life.
Listen to music with the screen turned off

You can do this by pressing the power button when your music is playing.
Turn connections you're not using off

You only need to have Bluetooth and Wi-Fi on when you're using the features. You can turn them off in the Settings menu.
Be careful what you're synching

Having push email turned on permanently can use up a lot of power, especially if you're downloading large files. Change the sync settings for your email accounts to a longer interval. To do this, select Settings from the Apps list and choose Email & accounts. Tap the account you want to change, select Download new content, select a longer interval, followed by Done.
Me and People Tiles

Each time you visit the Me and People tiles, your phone will use power to update the streams. Try to limit how often you open these tiles.
