How strong is N95 8GB’s battery?

The N95 8GB has a strong 1200 mAh battery. However, it has also a bigger and brighter screen. So, how strong is the battery? To answer this question I’ve made a batterylog showing all operation( like music), time and the battery level. To check how strong the battery is, I installed nSys on my N95 8GB which shows how much power the battery got. Before I started this batterylog, I charged the N95 8GB the whole night, choose GSM as my network mode and set light sensor to middle. Besides I deactivate Bluetooth and WLAN scanning to save more power.

    1. I can’t believe you actually turn your device off! Good log of but i’d like to see the performance with 3g activated, and the device constantly active.

    2. why do u turn your device off?
      but i think rly impressive, all in all one day of powerusing…

    3. please, do a test with the device always ON, instead of turning it off, just put it in silent mode,in school, during the night…and every time you don’t want to be disturbed..

    4. it would probally last even longer without turning it off and on so much as this uses power to boot up more so than just on stanby 😉

      nice log tho dude

    5. Mal eine frage nebenbei
      Warum zeigt der musik player meines N95 8GB keine Album Grafiken der Lieder die ich draufgezogen habe an und das N70 meines bruders zeigt die Album Grafiken an

    6. How do you think it compares to the n82’s battery life?

    7. Choose offline profi at night instead of shut down your phone. Battery will last a little bit longer, cause booting the phone drain the battery much more.

    8. Martin ur wrong, i talked with the producers of N-Series and they told me that when u boot a phone it will explode 😦
