Why oh why do they not allow complete turn off of the screen after taking a call for example? That would be a huge saving.
The other thing I was thinking was that since most of the time (when not cycling for example) I use the BB indoors, allow even lower screen brightnesses. Mine is set to 10% for 99.9% of the time. Why not allow even lower brightness for (I guess) even lower battery usage?
