    So is there anyway to get good battery life without restoring as new Phone? I need all my gamesaves, pictures, texts, etc...

    Can someone help me out?

    Thanks

    Turn down the brightness and turn off the wifi?

    you don't have to turn off wi-fi, but if you want BETTER battery life, switch it off. and the brightness, what didn't work??? just lower the brightness level, pretty straightforward. these 2 things will help battery very much. also switch off bluetooth, gps, and 3g.

    -Restore from backup, then:

    -Settings- General- Reset All Settings

    That's it. Just like restoring your phone, without losing your call logs, gamesaves, text messages, etc

    No, the reason people say restoring from new helps, is normally because a app file went rogue and uses up battery life. If you restore from backup the app file is still there.
