    Best Touchscreen Smartphone for battery life??

    Hi all,

    Can anyone recommend a good touchscreen smartphone that has a good battery? Below £200 if poss, on 3 network.

    I have a Desire which I end up charging every other day.

    Cheers,

    Steveo.

    How do you get a Desire to last two days?

    Do you ever look at it?

    Mine lasted 16 hours at most and my Galaxy S2 is about the same.

    what would you suggest? I can't do balackberry as my fingers are too big for a quertypad.

    Turn off GPS and Wifi unless you need it and set the screen brightness to the slightly dimmed setting.
