09-13-2009, 11:27 PM #1Battery life with Animated Wallpapers
my first post in this forum. As im not getting helped on my country's board i decided to try the international version
I have a question concerning battery life in connection with anim. wP and VWP.
It seems that when i use an animated background (without vwallpaper just a .mp4 video) this video keeps on running even though i set the phone in sleep mode - (u remember the button on top right ggg ) which i think is the reason why its draining the very life out of the battery...
is there an app or somethin else i can do wich stops the video during sleep mode? that would anim. backgrounds make a lot more attractive to me ...
Anyway what is Vwallpaper all about ? If im able to use anim. backgrounds without it why should i use it theN?
sorry for my noob questions
thx in advance Patrick

oh sorry i forgot! im Using 3.0.1 on a 3gs and i dont have problem with normal battery life. but when im running a mp4 video in the background as a wallpaper i can almost watch the battery getting squeezed though the phone is in sleeping mode.
maybe i should try vwallpaper cuz i never tried it before
