With QtEI I am currently recharging every other day (except when it
occasionally fails to autosuspend, which a reboot fixes) so remembering to
charge during the day would be a pain (and not always possible). :-(
Talking to a friend of mine at work who has an Android dev phone from the US
he reckons he's got better battery life out of it since running cupcake, but I
don't know if the same will apply with it on a FR.

Perhaps it's because I'm in Australia but I've never experienced the buzz
problem (yet), so maybe I'm just lucky..
