I dont quite understand what expected 10% additional battery life (when sound disabled). means; Are there any ways to completely disable the speaker? I have read on these forums that there is a slight hissing sound continuously coming out of the speaker.
Or are they reffering to disabeling the 'clicking' sound when the buttons are pressed?
