nice article but you made a mistake... Ni-Cd has no memory and Li-Ion and Polymer has memory. This is the advantage, you can recharge them whenever you want.

Li-ion has no memory while Ni-cd does. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/L

The problem is no one ever charges their smartphone battery fully before use....even me and then you all complain...your supposed to charge it at least 12 hours before use...i did 8 and my droid x lasts me about 8 hours on super heavy use..games...texts...data.....crapp loads so i think its pretty good but my next phone...im going to charge it tons!

And if your phone is WiFi capable, connect it to WiFi where available. My Droid used to run out of battery power in 8 hours at my workplace until I connected it to the WiFi and then I would get a full day of use out of it.

Not always true. If your WiFi is on, and you're not connected to it, it's just like leaving your Bluetooth on, and it'l drain your battery faster than normal.

mmmm I didn't bother reading the article just because when my phone has less then %15 and it does the little fart noise I just turn everything off and make the screen as dim as it can get without going black. It usually lasts about 4 to 5 hours with that.

I have an Android app that intelligently disables devices if no app is running to use them or if the screen goes off.
