Great Idea! - An Always Lit Status Bar RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • With touchscreen phones becoming increasingly popular, they should have a separate status bar that is always lit showing network status, battery life, time, and notifications. 

    Why turn on the backlight completely just to check these?  I think battery life on our phones would increase if we didn't have to keep turning it on just for that.  All you would need is a little strip that uses very little power maybe seperate from the actual touchscreen.

    Personally I check my phone all the time just to see what time it is, if I have a text, or have received an email.

    Do you think this would help save battery life?
