    Short battery life?

    RJ__ 3 years ago

    How many hours standby can you realistically get from this phone? It is on a 3G network but even with minimal calls (and very little WiFi/Bluetooth use), I can't get 24 hours out of it. Surely it should be better than this?

    Same here I can only get 12 to 24 hours batt life, and it keeps dropping out of 3G all the time and the only way to get it back is turning the phone off then on again which of course wastes the battery with all it's start up rubbish!!! Not happy with this phone and my provider won't let me change it for a better one, it's taken me nine months just to get them to send it back to manufacturer to see why it keeps going wrong with 3G etc!!!! btw I don't use apps only the ones that came with the phone and I don't know what most of them are for!!!

    i tried downloading the juice defender as Southernboogie suggested however, there is a charge for this app

    Go onto the Android Market and download "Juice Defender." I did this with my Europa, and it was the first thing i did when i got my SII. It's a brilliant app, and i can't recommend it highly enough. Your battery life will improve massively.

    its a smartphone for god sake.. all smart phones are power hungry.. switch off the wifi, bluetooth, gps, reduce screen brightness, disable the apps... basically make your smartphone to a call.text phone.. you will have loads of battery life..

    It could be something to do with your GPS and screen brightness as well, mine is exactly the same, rubbish battery life if you ask me!

    Hello, the 'pc internet on your phone' is still not available on the Samsung Galaxy Europa yet but will do when the Android 2.2 update comes around for the phone. This is because only on Android 2.2 + later Android versions will have that option. I hoped this helped!

    I had to download another Android keyboard from the market. When I went into settings for keyboard style it asked me to pick my default keyboard style. Samsung 3x4 keyboard seems to work the best for me.

    memory sd card

    mansar 3 years ago

    I have replaced the Micro SD card with an 8GB in my Europa, but it does not see it and I can not mount it. I formated it with FAT32 on my pc and it works ok. but my Galaxy Europa does not see it. If I eject it after 2minutes, I get a error msg on the top status bar with memory removed. Every time I access the set-up to mount it, the "mount SD" is grayed out and I canot mount or format it. Help please. Thanks.

    Hi, yes: Menu > Settings > Location Security> Untick GPS. This will allow you turn the GPS off permanently.
