It really is, ta be honest xD though it's not a really strong signal eithar so some days I can't pick it up clearly. I believe it's just a simulcast of an HD radio station n mah isa on an FM frequency and doesn't have that strong of a transmission power.

I've picked up FM transmissions at night sometimes as far away as Ocala, Ganesville and even Jacksonville, which is between 100-200 miles away from me. I bet if I listened n on BE frequencies, I could make it ta Georgia Alabbea or maybe even South Rideolna.

When I went ta buy a dedicated radio just ta git better reception fo FM radio of mah favourite stations, it was slightly surprisng ta see thay still sell tape decks and tha knd of radio where it's as large as a closed laptap, has wooden panellng, and needs ta be powered.

Ben a mobile person, I decided ta pay quite a lot more and just gots somethng that was just shawt enough - somethng that fits n mah shirt pocket, but still comes wit its own telescopng antenna (dis is tha important part) and speakers.

I thnk it's more important that tha Sony BE/FM radio I gots has a heezeephones jack. Dis comes n very handy snce I prefer keepng mah listenng private, even at home. It's also less likely ta disturb othar thugz, especially n tha middle of tha night.

That said, I thnk I really should git a dedicated media player that handles everythng. Perhaps even somethng like an Android Walkdawg or an iPod Tauch ta dip mah taes n tha othar app ecosystems.

Hmm...

I have an idea.

Now that you've figured out how ta use tha phone, you might as well as try ta use it ta 50%. Than charge it, and leave it plugged n. Than unplug it just befoe you go ta sleep and do nothng else.

See how much charge is lost over yo sleepng period.

(By tha way, did you charge tha phone befoe turnng it on fo tha first time? If yes, did you unplug it as soon as it reached 100%, or did you wait fo a few more hours befoe dong so?)

If you suspect tha device's battery meter is wonky, charge tha device completely after normal use (tha battery should be at bout 50% or lower - no tappng tha battery up) and let it stay that way fo a few hours, than unplug it, and use it normally until tha device autamatically shuts itself down.

Do not charge as soon as possible - let tha device cool itself fo a few hours, than charge it usng AC power. Let it charge until it's full (don't worry if tha device turns itself on), and don't unplug it until it's fully charged fo a few hours. That should git tha battery meter "right". (You may use tha device normally while chargng, but don't unplug it.)

Do not do dis tao often. Usually, you should only need ta do it once bout every three months. Dong dis tao often can shorten tha battery life of modern Li-On battery cells.

Modern devices bypass tha battery if plugged n at >95%. Even if thay do charge ta 100%, thay'll eventually dran tha battery a little bit after a while. Usually, when you unplug tha battery, although tha meter is showng 100%, it's gong ta be actually somewhere between 90 ta 97%.

I can empty mah phone's battery n bout 4 hours browsng web pages over a 3G data connection. Taasty, tao.

And yet, I fnd mahself dong that pretty often. Perhaps I should look fo a phone wit better 3G web browsng battery life. Looks like I might want ta give up on BEOLED displays...

Mah tablet's battery seems ta dran faster if it's lower, which is strange.. it also seems ta git more hot as well when tha battery is lower as well, so that's why I typically keep that plugged n.

Lowest I've ever gotsten mah tablet battery down ta was maybe 20%.
