Does your cell phone act weird on low - very low power?

Every single phone I've owned does this, from the simple, efficient, one charge lasts me 5days, to the annoying smartphones. For example, my current phone Sony Ericsson Equinox (TM 717) becomes very very slow if the battery is anywhere near ~10% and below. When I get a call, the ring tone gets interrupted abruptly.

Does your phone do this?

Re: Does your cell phone act weird on low - very low power?

I've never noticed anything that weird, but it probably goes into a "power saving" mode like most phones when the battery gets low. My phone forces the backlight to a low setting and disables the keypad illumination when the battery gets low, but i haven't noticed sluggish performance or anything else annoying.
