When I used Sygic with MMI on my Galaxy Ace in 2011, I remember it gave the summary. I used that feature on my roadtrips many times.

No: it is a classic method of removing moisture from wet electronics.

Many circuits and components are not actually damaged by water, but if current is flowing then the short circuits may well destroy stuff.

Even I can vouch for 2 days life on Atrix 2 with 2G. After I shifted to 3G it has come down to 1 to 1.5 days at max.

Query !
I have 10+ Gigs of music in my lappy. I just love rating my songs so that its convenient to find them at the right time.

Now the problem is that practically its impossible to sit hooked my laptop all the time and rate each and every song.

I am looking for an app for android or s/w for windows which can sync back ratings and play count from my phone to laptop.
I dont want any paid stuff. Please suggest some suitable app. I just want to sync back ratings from android to laptop. Thanks

What's wrong with Motorola?

Else, go for Samsung Galaxy Nexus. At 1750 mah, that should suffice your purpose well. Not to forget that it's the ultimate Android device with the added guarantee of always having the latest update first in world. At 23k, it is definitely a steal!

Any app available in android that changes settings of wifi, bluetooth, profiles according to time?

please let me know if anybody uses such an app. I don't want one that does it by location as that would use data or GPS. I want something that can do according to the time.

thanks

I am using an app called Smart Profiles (Free). It has options to manually change the profile, automatically change as per the set time or change as per location. Free app. Does the job well.

You could try Tasker. Its a paid app but gives you fantastic amounts of control over launching apps, based on time or whatever event. Practically lets you make mini apps yourself to control your phone as you like.

Its a little complicated at first but once you get the basics of it, its brilliant.

Consider Green Power. Most imp. advantage is that it has a pretty small footprint. However, for what you require, I guess you'll need the paid version.

And doing it by location does not necessarily require GPS. It can be done thru cell location (coarse). That would also mean battery saving. I don't know if GP works this way though. Please check it out if interested.

Thank you guys,

I will give all of above try. Will keep the best one. Will update soon. I don't mind paying for an app if it gets my job done.

thanks

Atrix 2 is a value for money purchase at 20K. I won't say the same about Razr Maxx. Other than the 3300Mah battery, it feels handicapped to competition.

I guess your Atrix 2 is the Indian version. Am I right? I've another friend of mine who got an unlocked AT&T version of the same and his battery life on 3G seems to go for a toss. With pretty average usage, he says he can't last 12hrs. On 2G, its not an issue. He's getting more than 2 days. I guess its something related to the baseband. Anyone else having the same issue?

I used to use an app called Llama which does a lot of things based on location. It does not use GPS but uses cell tower information to do this.
