A: Smartphones operate on a sort of spectrum. On one end you could put battery life, on the other end all those options like wifi/3g/sync (among other things). If you want great battery life you can't have those on all the time. If you want those on all the time, you won't get great battery life.

Whenever my wife is using her Samsung Galaxy Centura, the screen shuts off and won't turn back on for her to hang up or use the touch buttons. Has anyone else had this problem?No, her phone isn't rooted and we never attempted to root her phone. She has had it for about a year now.
