Motorola Droid X :: Security - Access Setting ?

Sep 24, 2010

I often share my phone with the family while at home because I don't have a land line. Is there a way to setup some kind of security so when others use the phone to make/receive calls they cannot access my email, sms, etc.? Something similar to user accounts on a Windows computer?

HTC Incredible :: Use WiFi / GPS For Location Setting? (Battery Life)

May 3, 2010

Do you use "Use wireless networks" or "use GPS" for your location setting, with an eye towards preserving battery life? I've heard that using GPS can be better on battery life because it only draws power when an application needs to use the GPS (which shouldn't be too often). I also heard that the wireless network setting uses more power because it is constantly using power.

Motorola Droid :: LWP Show In Battery Usage?

Mar 26, 2010

When hitting battery usage, would the LWP show up under display? I loaded in a new LWP from the market and checked battery usage and display was off the chart % wise compared to my normal use. And that was with some pretty decent phone activity. I disabled the LWP to check, but does anyone know if it will show here? Or anywhere?

Motorola Droid X :: Application For Usage Of Battery?

Jul 29, 2010

Is there an app that shows what is using the battery? On my Droid it would actually show what was using the battery: Display, slacker, dolphin, live wallpapers, etc. On my X when I check battery usage the only thing it ever says is: display, cell standby, phone idle. It never shows live wallpaper, slacker, or anything else I run. I am wondering how much battery these other apps are using, particularly the live wallpaper. Any suggestions for a 3rd party app I can run for a couple days to see what is really using my battery.

Motorola Droid X :: 100% CPU Usage - Performance - Battery Life

Nov 5, 2010

My X recently (within the last week) started having extremely poor battery performance under the same usage conditions as the previous week (K-9 syncs every 15 min, maybe 2 texts per hour, 2-3 emails per hour, maybe 5 total minutes of phone use). After 4 hours, the battery would be at 20-30%

To make matters worse, most functions were extremely slow to respond (contact loading, test message loading, recent calls, bookmarks, any scrolling was choppy, etc.) The delay when trying the most basic things (opening the browser, making a call) was getting unbearable.

I started backtracking the changes in the last week. Although I started tinkering with Google's App Inventor over three weeks ago, that's where I focused. I uninstalled all App Inventor programs, including the Eyes-Free Text to Speech engine. This engine was recommended by Google to do things like read text messages in the Apps you create.

Still no luck.

I decided to investigate the battery use a little more. In Battery Manager, I found that "Android System" was using about 70% of my battery. I was typically used to seeing things like "display" at the top.

I have an app called Android System Info. This showed my CPU usage pegged at 100% (even after a reboot). It never got lower than 99%. The biggest CPU hog was "Android System" at 75-80%, consistently.

This App has a tab to view the log, and I noticed several recurring error messages in the log. They were occurring at the rate of about 180 times per second! The error? "Invalid TTS Engine" Well, the TTS is controlled by the "Android System". The "Android System" was constantly trying to load the uninstalled TTS engine.

I went into "Settings...Voice input and output", and, although the Eyes Free TTS engine wasn't available, the default TTS was not set. I checked the box to have the native TTS as the default, and checked the box for "Always use my settings".

Everything immediately went back to normal. CPU usage is now around 10-20%, and "Display" is back at the top of my battery hogging functions.

Battery life is back to over 10 hours, and the delays are gone.

Motorola Droid X :: Android System Sensor Usage - Possible Battery Hog

Aug 5, 2010

I just got my droid x about 2 days ago, and I've gone through about 2 full cycles. So far I haven't been able to squeeze more than 6 hrs of use on it, so I installed spare parts to see if the GPS bug was affecting it.

Going through some usage information, I found that the "Android System" sensor usage was huge! Since 1hr 29min unplugged the Sensor has been on for 1hr 36min...weird.

Checking the total time since boot the sensor has been on 19 hrs. I have autobrightness turned off and I haven't come across any other posts that explain what uses the sensor.

Motorola Droid :: Texting - Downloading Youtube Videos - To Much Battery Usage?

Mar 24, 2010

12-1:30 "texting, downloading youtube videos and listing to music on droid live" dropped from 100% to 60%
from 1:30-6:45 "listening to droid live but probably lost connection half way through the night" 60%-0%

i also have wifi and gps on all the time, settings for brightness is automatic. cpu set 550min to 880max. and have juicy defender free running. also tons of widgets "about 3 screens full of widgets. and lookout defender/set cpu/ nimbuzz/ battery status running in the notification bar. to me it looks like its fine, but what i noticed after really looking at the plot is the battery power drops 10% almost every 30 minutes during heavy use. and a hour between 10% drops and its almost on the dot to.

Motorola Droid :: Android System And Partial Wake Usage - Battery

Nov 29, 2009

There are a bunch of threads out there talking about battery usage and how to figure out what's draining your battery.

Almost all of them say to go get Spare Parts app from the market and check you "partial wake usage".

I did that and 95% of my partial wake usage is from "Android System".

Is that normal? Anyone who is getting good battery life (20+ hours) - what do you see in the partial wake usage?

I just checked my phone:

13h 10m 23s since unplugged
Partial Wakelock:Android System Total time: 13h 1m 44s

Is this normal?

The only widgets I have are:

Stock power control widget
Ringer Toggle Widget

I am running GDE in the background (not my default home screen).

HTC Droid Eris :: Google Navigator - Battery Usage Tip

May 16, 2010

I did some testing with the Navigator yesterday and I have to say it's absolutely awesome. I'm not sure if anyone has posted this, couldn't find any mention of it, but I want to share my battery usage experience with it as well as some other cool things I noticed.

Very cool battery saver:
I used it for a 15-minute drive, keeping it only in the Notification Bar. When you are in the Navigation app, you can press the Home softkey to go back to your home screen. This keeps Navigator working in the background, but it is not drawing the maps and using the screen. You can press the Power button to put your phone to sleep, and the voice actually still talks to you and tells you when to turn. And even better, I started this trip with 76% battery and ended with 76% battery.

Now, the not-so-cool.
I used it for a 30-minute drive, keeping the screen on and letting it show me the map the entire way. I started the drive with 54% battery ended with 34% battery. So definitely keep it on the charger if you are using it for a long drive. But another awesome thing I noticed. I made a phone call toward the end of my destination, just to see what would happen. I used the Home key to back out of the Navigator (but keeping it in the background, as I said above), then made my call as normal. The Navigator still gave me directions while I was on the phone. It came through the earpiece now, so the other person doesn't hear it. How freaking cool is that?

Jan 13, 2010

Motorola CLIQ :: >> Battery Specs - Setting

Nov 26, 2009

From the Motorola site:

POWER up to 360 min / 6 hrs

USAGE TIME (CONTINUOUS)2

BATTERY TYPE
1420 mAh lithium polymer
STANDBY TIME2
up to 325 hrs / 13.5 days

I did away with all the motoblur stuff but I've been having problems with my battery life still.... I've been running a bunch of apps, IMing, emails, wifi etc.... and it's been lasting about 6 hours.

Today I cut everything back using "advanced task manager free" and after about 6 or 7 hours I still only had like 40% left...... no where near anything like the specs.

Six hours continuous talk time? 325 hours standby? Certainly not the way it comes out of the box! Who are they trying to kid? Is anyone getting anything near this? Is there even any way to get close to that? WTF? Does anyone find these specifications deceptive?

My battery might not be the best but it seems to be at least average from what I hear. Please tell me what setting I need to get this kid of battery life!

Some people here have said deep cycling the battery helps but that's supposed to be bad for lipo batteries

Some people also say you need to charge the battery fully before first use or you can ruin it but no other sites mention that.

I want to be able to use gps and apps and wifi and email and IM during the day w/o being tied to a charger all day. I was a dedicated sidekick user but now love the cliq.... except for the battery life.

I thought of getting a spare battery but don't want to lug an extra battery around...... I've seen apps (APNdroid) that shut off the data to conserve battery life but I want to use the features of the phone... that's why I have it....... what's the answer?

Btw: "battery graph" and "spare parts" are great apps to monitor battery usage.

Also, in some places it says the bp6x battery is rated at 1300 mAh and in other is says 1420 mAh but it's the same battery! What's up with that?

Question: What kind of battery life do you experience with "normal" usage? Does anyone know what settings to use to approximate the times noted in the Cliq specifications?

Android :: Location Device And Information Usage

May 8, 2010

I have a few questions regarding the usage of localization in android applications: Are there any interfaces available to find out when an application uses location information? Is it possible to know if the application is using coarse or fine grained location information? Is it possible to detect which type of localization is being provided, i.e. gps vs. wifi? And if the answer to any of the above question is yes, how? You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "Android Developers" group.

Motorola Droid :: Website Security Certificates

Nov 28, 2009

My work has free Wifi available for patients and whoever but you must first sign in on a main page it redirects to if your not already. Here to sign in you must accept a security certificate to be able to do this. It worked on my Droid the first day I did this and now I cannot get it to work, says it cannot redirect with no connection. Now this has happened before with my laptop and I just remove the certificate and it gets a new one and off I go. My question is where can I find these so I can delete it on the droid?

Motorola Droid :: Security On Rooted Phones?

Jun 5, 2010

I remember all the ruckus about security concerns for jailbroken iPhones, and after talking to a friend with one of these devices, I began to wonder if there were any similar concerns I should have with a rooted Droid?

1) Is it more important now to have a "pattern-protected" lock screen?
2) Do I need to create a unique password for SU access?
3) Do I need to be more concerned malware or data swiping from market apps?

I love my recently rooted Droid but assume that "with great power, comes great responsibility." Is my assumption correct, or do I need not be concerned?
