Droid X: Battery Life Tips – Don’t Use WiFi Hotspot Feature

So far the Droid X has received pretty impressive reviews, however there have been some complaints regarding battery life, especially when configuring the smartphone as a WiFi hotspot.

The problem is that high-end smartphones are becoming more and more advanced, the high-performance components require more power, therefore the Droid X’s 8 megapixel camera, 1GHz processor and built-in WiFi results in power draining more and more rapidly.

A recent article posted on ZNew24 looks into the handset’s WiFi hotspot functionality, this functionality basically allows you to use the Droid X as a modem/router, you can then connect wirelessly to your Droid X’s internet connection from laptops or PCs.

ZNews24 suggest that this feature noticeably drains the Droid X’s battery life, therefore my recommendation is to only use this feature when you are desperate, or perhaps make sure you carry your charger around with you at all times. There is a chance that this battery consumption will be improved when a firmware update is released, lets hope so.
