Motorola Droid :: App That Show Battery Life In Hours And Minutes?
Dec 1, 2009
Is there an app that show battery life in terms of how many hours or mins left looking for something accurate and free of problems there is one i found called battery time but its got so so reviews If not what in your opinion is the best battery percentage app out there for features and accuracy
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?
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....
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.
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.
There was another thread about this posted already but it had no poll!! Here's another with an actual poll. I hope this helps all of us get an idea of what kind of battery life to expect with the STOCK 1300mah battery.
Is this happening to anyone else? sucks man...This is my second handset was flawless until this most recent update. After my phone comes off from a full charge it will die after 4 hours, no exaggeration! I have already tried closing the unwanted "syncing apps" still no good. What the heck should I do?
So I recently went back to my hero from my tour and the battery is just horrible. I'm getting on average 5-6 hours max as oppossed to the 8-10 I would before. Where do I start looking for leaks or figuring out what's going on.
I have terrible battery life with the 2.0d ROM. I don't really know why either as when I look at the battery usage, everything is pretty low except for the Cell Standby. On that note, has anyone else experienced terrible signal? Cause, I am.
I'm going to do a wipe and if it doesn't get better, i'll be returning it. My only widgets are sense weather which updates hourly, sportstap which updates hourly, Pandora, HTC calendar, and astrid. Am I missing something here?
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.
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..
Is this normal? That seems ridiculous. I have my screen on the lowest brightness, have all syncing off, have 3g, using a black background, GPS, Bluetooth off. Like wtf? Battery monitor says i have 290 hours remaining also. Im so confused
I have a new Xperia Mini which claims to be capable of 200+ hours standby time. I'm getting only 19 hours! I have disabled everything - Navigation, 3G, Wifi, GPS, Updates, but its still draining in less than 24 hours. Can this be right?
How long will the battery last if music is played continuously? I will be going on a very long bus ride from Brampton, Ontario to Boston. Thats around 8-10 hours. Will the battery last 10-12 hours atleast? that way i have some juice for any emergencies.
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.
I purchased my DX yesterday, used it for about 20 minutes then let it charge until about an hour after or more after it said it was done charging. Did I do this incorrectly? Because I only got about 14 hours worth of battery time. I was very data intensive last night.
My battery seems to do alright but one thing that has really been bugging me is that every time my battery gets to 30/20% it dies almost instantly lasting no more than 15 minutes from normal usage (texting, checking email). Is this normal or is mine a bad battery or a battery gone bad rather? Thing is the battery lasts a long except for the last quarter of the battery. I've never seen my battery hit any values below 20% except 5% which is when it turns off immediately after.Call for a replacement battery or is this normal? Do i have to reset my battery or something?
So i charged the extended battery, and unplugged it around 4Pm yesterday. I put it in the car dock to and from the Mann center last night, took some pics and played lightly online. forgot to plug it in before I went to bed last night, and now at 11am, im @ 15%.Do i have a battery drain app on here or something? Maybe it was my GPS? just noticed i forgot to turn that off after exiting the car?
My girlfriend and I both bought this phone from Verizon last Friday. We both let the battery run down completely before charging it up (which I was told by the Verizon rep was the "way to go"), and we have both been experiencing GOD AWFUL battery life. Strange battery behavior has included (but has not been limited to):
- Battery going from 100% to 5% after 5.5 hours straight of browsing, playing games, etc., followed by the Battery going from 100% to 5% after 5.5 hours of idle (with light texting and a few quick phone calls mixed in). Seemingly no consistency.
- Battery draining down to around 30% after about 8 hours off-charger with light to moderate use (a few web pages, a few apps downloaded, and about half a dozen texts). If this wasn't annoying enough, shortly after reaching 30%, the phone suddenly took a nosedive into the red, and warned me that I had 5% battery remaining.................
I manually installed the FRG01B update yesterday. And since doing so, I have noticed a ridiculously steep drop in battery life. Do I need to be running FRG22? Is that available to download manually, if so? I also know that I don't have the version of Facebook that was causing battery drainage. ATK didn't seem to help at all (it might have even made it worse). Is there anything I can do to vastly improve battery life? It would be great if I could get the phone's battery to last at least 24 hours. I already uninstalled ATK, by the way.
Does anyone else find that their battery does best at like 60%-70% charged and when it gets below 40 it moves a lot quicker? Also I've done 3 full drain and full recharges so far and my battery has improved sloightly each time, do you reccomend I do it again or is that just bad for the battery?
