1) Go to settings/applications/manage applications to kill apps. If you are lazy, find some tasker apps & set to auto-kill apps.

2) Press & hold your app in the app list to move it to the home screen.

3) Download some battery indicator app if you want to see the battery percentage. Im using batterybar becos its cute.

4) Somebody can help you, no experience with the fruit phone.

Well, for 4) you can either first sync all your contacts to gmail account then setup the gmail account. Android will auto sync from gmail to your contacts.

Or if fruit phone can save contacts in vcard format .vcf file, you can load the vcf file into XS then import into contacts I think.

I find out thru USB charging, it takes a long long time to fully charge the phone. Will using a usb3 port speed up this process?? Or standard USB2.0 highspeed will do?

hi

hmm good input dude u talking about the quick charger
with usb connection right?
or just micro US to USB port..- If yes, i dont think 3.0 will boost up the charging speed. USb charging is always much slower than power charging .. i do have a USB 3.0 port in my company pc - can try but dont think it will be faster. )
standard usb charging 500mA. whereas

the quick charger inside - let me try plug in the USB connection and try the charge too...
question is - will it really be much faster?

the quick charger is @ 1500mAh.

i am using my iPad 2 charger @ 2000mAh to charge my XS now. Charge Faster and Battery Lifespan dies also faster

oh 1500mAH? ic.. it means offically Xperia S batterypack can be charged safely via this 1500mAh charger.

i always think the battery specifications have to check first.
if u use a 2000mAH charger - it will shortterm the battery life...
anyway how long for a full chargeas per u 2000mAh charger? 1 hour? thks
