Android :: Battery Life Is So So Poor / Dead Between To 6 Hours

Aug 16, 2010

I have HTC desire and find my battery life from fully charged to dead is between 4 hours to 6 hours.
Is anybody else having this problem or do you think the battery is faulty ?
I've only had the phone 4 months and find it annoying that i have to turn phone off to save battery. What's point having it as a phone if you have to turn it off..

Android :: Battery Dead After 12 Hours

Oct 4, 2010

I just bought a second hand Samsung Galaxy Portal, and it's a great phone and works fine, but the battery is dead 12 hours after a full charge. I had a task killer installed at first but I removed it after reading about how it drains the battery, so I'm wondering what else it could be? I know it might just be an old battery that's lost it's will to hold charge, but what can I check on the phone before I have to splash out on a battery or take the phone back? I know it has some decent tools for monitoring battery usage so what should I be looking for?

Motorola Droid :: Battery Dead In Four Hours

Sep 22, 2010

For 2 days my battery has been draining quickly. This morning it is dead in less than 4 hours. I sent four texts. Checking battery usage, this is what I found: com.android.launcher - 46%, Beautiful Widget (just uninstalled) - 37%. I have never noticed these processes taking up so much battery. Background: I have been receiving a low storage notice so I deleted some apps, texts and pictures and plugged in for the night. The next morning the severe battery drain began. I was concerned about shorter battery life after the latest update so I have recently changed my settings to lower frequency for refreshing email, etc.

HTC EVO 4G :: Just Got To Play With An Evo For A Few Hours - Battery Life

May 18, 2010

Screen resolution was incredible (no pun intended), but the phone would get really washed out fast if viewed at an angle. My Hero's display is sharp at any angle, the Evo's screen must not have an IPS display, straight on is the only way to see well.

I did the multitouch test on the screen (the one that the Nexus One and other HTC devices didn't do so well on). It worked very well and didn't lose track of my fingers like the N1/Hero would.

4G in the city I'm in, except, driving around, it was almost not worth it. It's hilly and the signal would go in and out like mad, eating up battery and making applications stop while the phone figured itself out. At a stand-still the phone did fine, driving around, leave it on 3G, I would say. I literally felt like I had an original iPhone 3G on AT&T all of the sudden. I was just staring at the bars waiting for the signal to drop and my phone sit there like I had no signal. And btw, Clear's site shows my house to have FULL 4G, and I do not have a usable signal in my house and barely outside... Not enough of a gain in bandwidth to warrant even trying 4G at home. I'll just stick to 3G. They've REALLY got to work on that network. 6mbps? I am one of the only Evo's out there and I only got around 2.5mbps with a full 4G signal (yes, I know, Clear is used for other things than phones). That's 3G speed, not 4G. Can't wait to see how much switching between 3G and 4G eats up battery life...

Speedtest.net gave up to 2.5mbps download, and around 1mbps upload (capped). This is so-so fast, not really what I would call "4G" as my friend's Verizon Droid consistently gets 2mbps download, and he has a signal everywhere, unlike 2500mhz Sprint/Clear 4G. Also, 4G seemed to just turn off every now and then. I'd have to hit the 4G Widget off/on to get it to reconnect. Didn't happen but once, but still...

The User Interface is very nice, and that large screen makes browsing easy. The keyboard is FABULOUS. Used stock and Smart Keyboard Pro and I could type like the freaking wind. Love it.

The phone doesn't feel slim like the N1 or Incredible. It's a big manly phone. I wouldn't say the proportions are bad. It's all black and thinner than my Hero (pictures to come), but I certainly don't think 'oh my god how thin' when I look at it, like I do with the N1 or Incredible. It is very handsome. All black, very nice front area and very simple, nice back. Innards are red as all get out, of course.

2.1 Update 1 is running on the phone. No 2.2 here.

The camera seems really decent, from my minor use. Flash is BRIGHT for LED, and the sensitivity is impressive with low-light video.

Reception (3G) seems stellar. You won't have any issues here compared to other phones. It has great 3G reception. As for 4G, as mentioned above, we'll see....

HTC EVO 4G :: Shooting For 50 Hours Battery Life

Jun 12, 2010

Update:
40 hours and it finally died!!
36 hours and 16%!!
33 hours and 27%
28 hours and 48% I'm rooted (unrevoked) BUT I'm not running this over/under-clocking widget, nor do I run ATK or any other task killer! In fact, here's some of my pertinent settings:
- Disabled 4G (can't get it where I live anyways)
- WiFi HotSpot (android-wifi-tether) is obviously OFF most of the time
- WiFi is ON, weak signal to boot (AP in back of house)
- BlueTooth is ON, but not active/paired
- GPS is ON
- HTC Weather/Time Widget is on
- Turned off FriendStream widget
- Not running any silly MySpace/FaceBook/Twitter widgets
- Push Email (ActiveSync from Exchange, average about 100 emails and 5 appts per day)
- Calendar alerts were on vibrate most of the past 2 days but I turned that off as I don't need it
- Also have K-9 running IMAP with a 5 min poll
- I use speakerphone at least 50% of the time, and I had about 30 calls over the past 2 days
- I've installed a bunch of apps, but nothing to manage the system/cpu
- I'm running a pre-alpha of the security/anti-malware software I'm building
- All of the Sprint/factory/HTC apps continue to run, but I seldom use them
- I turned of all haptic feedback (uses vibrate) but phone/sms still vibrate
- All other settings are factory, I'm "keeping it simple"

I've had the phone a week basically, and let the phone die COMPLETELY on Thursday morningish, and I charged it up and used it that day and let it charge to 100% that night. I unplugged the phone around 1:30am, this was Thursday night.It was never this good though, I'm really surprised to be honest! Ok, here's the pics. You'll note a whopping 11 hours of Awake time too. Below is from early this morning when I woke up - 1 day 4 hours unplugged: This is from just a moment ago (10am Saturday) - 1 day 8 hours unplugged: Oh and this morning I did some texts, took a couple of short calls, and 2 videos of my daughter's swim meet races.. Oh I also checked all of my work emails, and I had to send these pics to other email so I could get them onto my computer because I didn't want to plug the phone in yet. I'm going to see how long it makes it before it dies.. Shooting for ~50 hours Again, this was from a full charge and includes 1 day, 2 nights, and now another morning thus far. I plan to do but have not yet done the CDMA-GSM trick, the battery green charge on/off trick, and also monitor my TWS at some point - that will be for the next test though, as I don't want to muck with this test (normal every day use test)Edit: I see now if I disabled BlueTooth I'd save the battery even more, as it looks like it's sucking up a lot of battery and for no reason right now since nothing is paired or has been for the past ~24 hours.

HTC Incredible :: Poor Battery Life Due To GPS Bug

I'm trying to decide between the Droid X and the Incredible. I found this link in the Droid X forum, regarding a potential cause for poor battery life. Could this issue be plaguing the Incredible as well?

HTC Incredible :: Bad Battery Or Poor Battery Life

Jun 23, 2010

My battery life was bad, but it was OK, but in the past few days my battery life is 10% per 30minutes(Just over 5 hours on a charge).I used to get 8-10 hours on a charge.I noticed last week that while it was charging the status of the battery was "Overheat".I think I somehow cooked the battery?I use TaskKiller and kill 95% of apps automatically, I have bluetooth,wireless,GPS disabled and the screen dimmed.I have not changed or installed any new apps.I have not changed the way I use the phone at all.My battery was dead, 0%, and it charged to 95% in about 45 minutes.Is this even possible?In fact in the past two days I have not gotten the charge above 95% at all.

HTC Desire :: Getting 3 Hours Of Battery Life With Normal Use

May 31, 2010

I've been using my Desire for three days now, and been quite happy with it. Except for the fact that I can barely get three hours of battery life out of it, with "normal" use. (A couple of text messages/MSN conversations, quick web browsing every now and then). I've tried everything, turning syncs to 6 hours intervals, switching off 3G and WiFi, reducing screen brightness etc.

But the battery still loses about 1% per 1 minute. This can't be normal, right? Is this something that will improve over time? Could I have a faulty battery that needs replacing? I don't have unrealistic expectations for the battery life, just lasting for a full working day is enough for me, and I assume that should be possible.

Motorola Droid :: 0 For 2 / Still Only 8-12 Hours Battery Life

Aug 1, 2010

I've tried BB 0.4 with two different kernels no good and kangerade 5.0.9 think. Still no good. Display is always on lowest setting possible but battery usage for display is well over 50. Only lasting 8-12 hours. First 10% drains in 10 minutes. Wtf!!! Overclock widget hasn't helped. And haven't tried setcpu. No credit card. So does setcpu improve battery life dramatically? Never had a problem with battery life before rooted Froyo. Ne suggestions? I just saw a new SS rom and new Chevy kernel. Anyone have any luck with them yet?

Motorola Droid X :: Poor Battery Life With 2.2?

Oct 24, 2010

Has anyone else noticed much poorer battery life on the Droid X since updating to 2.2? I find my phone running low on juice much quicker now than it ever was with 2.1, even after rooting and installing SetCPU. I typically leave bluetooth, wifi, and GPS all turned off unless I am specifically using them, so I am not sure what is causing this battery drain.

Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 :: Battery Life - Not Getting More Than 12 Hours

Apr 8, 2010

Is anyone else having serious problems with the battery life? After fully charging the phone, I can't get more than 12 hours usage out of it, even if it's on standby for 95% of the time. I'm guessing something is seriously using up the battery somewhere but I'm not sure what. I've been to Settings --> About --> Phone Usage and it says where the battery has been used, but 40%+ is on Phone idle, and 40%+ is on cell idle (I'm guessing signal), but surely this shouldn't be happening, the figures on the Sony website give standby hours in the hundreds not less than 10.

Samsung Captivate :: Battery Life Pretty Poor

Aug 5, 2010

My battery life has been pretty poor to this point, so I have been going from full charge to completely empty. I was doing that today when my phone shut off because it was out of battery. I then went and plugged it in for about four minutes, then realized I needed something so I unplugged and turned it back on, and now am showing 43% battery! I figured it was a glitch with the stock battery display, so downloaded the BatteryLife widget, which confirms I have 43%. Does this mean I need to complain to AT&T to get a new battery, or a new phone? Update: I rebooted the phone again and was at critically low battery life. I reseated the battery and rebooted again, and now I'm at 5%.

Motorola Droid :: Poor Battery Life - Signal

Nov 26, 2009

I'm sure many of the "poor battery life" reports were pre-mature, as people didn't realize their new rechargable has to condition itself, but today I ran into a new situation. This is my second Droid, since replacing original, due to wanting to confirm a faulty antenna, and trying to solve the 3G->1x issue.

Reception at my house is a crap shoot, where moving my phone 6 inches on my desk make speed tests go from 1.5Mb to 300k. So today I'm at mom's, 2 miles away, and we are both equidistant from the VZ store, which is also 2 miles away. However at her house, I pretty much get (0) bars. I left my house with about a 95% charge, pulling it from the plug before I left. I used it maybe 15min to try to resolve her router issue. After 6 days, my battery was good for a at least 18-24hrs of light browsing and mail checking. Well today, It was down to 50% after 3 hours, while flipping back and forth from 3G ->1x. I had (0) bars most of the time and noticed that the battery was warmer than usual. Signal strength was between -95dBM and -110dBm. Now "almost" 5 hours after pulling from the plug, I'm down to 20%. If my hypothesis is correct, I bet the charge will last the night now that the channels have stabilized.

For those that suffer from poor battery life or high awake times, I was given a code to enter that will give you all kinds of hidden info about the battery and what programs are running in the background keeping the phone from sleeping. Hit phone, as if you were dialing a number to call, enter *#*#4636#*#*, then talk. You will seee a menu come up that you can change to show you all kinds of hidden info on the phone and battery. Hope this helps some of you that are suffering poor battery performance and high awake times.

Motorola Droid X :: Poor Reception Area - Killing Battery Life - Disable 3G?

Aug 2, 2010

I am currently on a new client where it's constantly on 1X and occasionally switches back to 3G with 0 bars, then back to 1X. I got in to work at 8:30 am and by 5:00 the battery was at 30%. Battery Manager shows Cell Standby as 21% of the battery usage. I had about a 15 minute call this morning (presumably on 1X, I didn't check) and have not used the Internet at all for the rest of the day. This is obviously unacceptable. On my Droid Eris, there was a way to turn off the Mobile Network and use only 2G/1X for calls. I have researched and not found a similar option for the Droid X (Why would Motorola leave this out?) Does anyone know what my options are? I've heard you can go into the #*#*INFO*#*# menu and set it to 2G only, then restart, but that would be a pain to do every morning.

Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 :: Call Volume Low Fixed Asap2 / Battery Life Very Poor

Aug 10, 2010

so what if each of uses this thread to clearly state the problems that they are having with the X10, please don't go on about firmware updates etc as this isn't an actual problem, we all knew the firmware the phone was running when we bought it, so therefore I feel we have to accept that is down to us as we made the choice to buy the phone. Please be polite and concise and hopefully Jeff or someone from SE will take the time to read the thread and answer in due course, remember though it may take a little time for people to post the problems they are having and also for Jeff and co to find the answers for us.

please pop in and acknoledge the posts every now and then, just so we know our complaints aren't falling on deaf ears. I am hving problems with 1/ In call volume is very low and needs to be fixed asap 2/ Battery Life is very poor, I mainly only send texts at the moment as I cant hear calls and also use the ebook reader for maybe an hour or two a day, yet I have to charge the phone halfway through the day, even though I fully chatge it at night.....
