How To Get Longer Battery Life On The HTC Desire Google Android Smartphone
OK, so to get a usable amount of battery life out of your HTC Desire, try the following:
1) Use a plain wall-paper. ("Menu" then "Wallpaper", then choose "HTC Wallpapers".)
2) Add the Android Power Control Widget to your Home-Screen, so YOU control when apps sync, wi-fi is on, blue-tooth is on, and GPS is activated. (Press the + button on any home-screen, "widget", "Power Control").
3) (This is the most important!) When you don't need the Internet, turn it off! (Hold the Power Button, then tap the bottom option "Mobile Network". You'll still be able to make and receive calls, and send and receive text-messages, but the phone won't be using 3g, so you'll save loads of power. Just tap it again to turn the internet back on, it works in seconds).
