Motorola Droid :: Way To Close Out Browser / It Doesn't Continue Sucking Battery Dry

Jan 12, 2010

Ok, I have had a Motorola Droid since they released the phone and my battery has been great. I could charge it overnight and take it off the charger around 6:30 am and when I put it back on the charger around 9 - 10 pm at night I would still have anywhere from 50% to higher battery life and this is after very heavy usage.

Beginning a few days ago I noticed that my Droid battery indicator is showing almost completely drained out by 6 pm and I really used my phone lightly yesterday and today. Today and yesterday both, the red LED was blinking and the battery indicator was showing almost completely dead by 6 pm. I pulled up the battery usage on the phone and it is showing the 'browser' as the biggest battery hog for some reason. Today it was showing 81% of the battery usage was from the browser. I hardly, if at all, used the browser today. I also checked the firmware version and it is showing 2.0.1, which I never updated it myself.

Are there any suggestions about why the browser would be draining the battery down so bad, when the browser has not even been used? Is there a way to close out the browser so it doesn't continue sucking the battery dry, besides using an app killer program?I did search the forum and did not see a specific question/answer to my question. I know I had read that some people were seeing battery issues after upgrading to 2.0.1, but I did not upgrade my phone, it must have done it.

Samsung Captivate :: Battery Sucking Apps

Jul 29, 2010

when I first got my captivate, I was pretty impressed with battery life. I got 7.5hrs of in-n-out of service, taking pics, playing a bit and it cost 15-20% of my battery. I played for 1hr solid and it took 10%. Not bad. I then had myself a marketplace orgy and downloaded a shit-load of apps figuring I would check them all out later. Most I knew I would want eventually. I think I found a bug in photo bucket this way. I noticed my phone would *idle* using 10%/hr of battery. That is horrible. I found through process of elimination it was the photo bucket app, and the battery usage? not CPU, no, it was the 3G radio. It was probably attempting to login (w/o credentials as I had not confided it yet) repeatedly. Once I uninstalled it (it would auto-start even after being killed) my battery went back to staying almost flat while idle. Far, photo bucket (at least configured) is a problem app for battery usage. everything else I've tried seems ok so far.

Motorola Droid X : Dolphin Hd Browser - Doesn't Always Open Bookmarks

Sep 17, 2010

So everyone LOVES dolphin hd...the verdict is out for me...it runs very slow and sluggish..doesn't always feel clicks, doesn't always open bookmarks, and doesn't always recognize text fields. Now by always i mean 95% of the time.

My phone itself is running slow lately period. Launcherpro is maggy, widget locker acts up, swype doesn't always give me the red search dot, and other fun problems.

I am rooted with 2.2. No themes.

KitKat 4.4 :: (Chrome Browser) Make Tabs Continue Loading When Not Active Window?

Apr 11, 2014

I'd like to make my browser continue loading homepages, even when I'm not starring at the respective tab. Hardware-wise this should be entirely possible with a Quad-Core CPU.

Right now, there is no root or custom ROM on my device which I'm willing to change in favor of the above improvement.

edit: 4.4.2 OS installed

Motorola Droid :: Default Web Browser - When Click Links In Non-default Browser It Doesn't Send Links To Default One

Dec 15, 2009

I have installed Dolphin and like it, and I've made it my default browser, which is great. However, it is not only the system default, but it even opens links I click on in the Android provided browser (sometimes I both open). On your computer, when you click links in your non-default browser it doesn't send the links to the default one, and it shouldn't on this OS, either. Any ideas how to keep Dolphin as my system default browser, but not have it open links I click on in the Android web browser?

Motorola Droid X :: Data Synchronization Doesn't Appear To Stop - Battery Dying

Sep 20, 2010

I don't know what I did, but it seems that my data synch is on non-stop. Maybe I never noticed before but in the notification bar, I see the recycle arrow icon just to the left of 3G and I can't seem to turn it off and my battery is running out faster than normal and the phone is very hot. I have used the Power Widget to power cycle (turn on/off) the data sync to no avail...

HTC Droid Eris :: Stock Browser Force Close With 2.1?

Jun 21, 2010

Sometimes, after the phone has been in sleep mode for awhile, when I hit the power button to wake it back up and then the menu button (or swipe) to open the screen, I get that circular bar pattern followed by what look like the browser trying to launch. The screen is white, with a white address bar area, too. Then that screen goes back to the circular bar pattern, followed by the white browser screen again, after which it just closes. Very odd. Doesn't do it all the time. Seems to be random. And after a hard reset, sometimes the first time or two I use the browser, it just force closes on me. Again, doesn't do it all the time. (At first I thought I accidentally hit the home button, or something, but I didn't.)

HTC Droid Eris :: Camera Eating Battery After Close

May 25, 2010

Since receiving the 2.1 OTA it seems that the camera is not closing properly after exiting. I first noticed this after I received the OTA update and just assumed I needed to do a factory reset, which i did yesterday.I checked it again this morning, took a pic, waited an hour and a half, and voila it's still eating battery at a prodigious rate as compared to other apps and systems currently consuming battery. The only thing I've found that works to date is rebooting the phone.Any ideas? anyone else experiencing this? My 1.5 ran beautifully and 2.1 is too, (I'm in the Frisco camp) with the exception of this camera glitch.

General :: Kill App Doesn't Close It Completely

Aug 26, 2012

I'm having problem using "Kill App" from Tasker.

I'm trying to kill apps like Google Music and Navigation (while GPS connected and Navigating).
Tasker can kill it for a moment (~3 seconds) but the app relauches.

I'm using the workaround:

Google Music:
- Disconnect BT (which pauses the music)
- Goto Home

Nav: - Macro (it messes all up when Nav is not running, i.e. I've closed manually)

Android : Button On An AlertDialog That Doesn't Automatically Close Dialog / Fix It?

Apr 8, 2010

I have a simple list view with some check boxes in an alert dialog. I need to option to add a select all/none but you can't bring up the menu in an alert dialog, and I want to do this function from a button. From what I've seen any kind of button (positive, neutral, and negative) all close the dialog regardless.

So, is this possible? If no, what alternatives do I have? My last mitigation is to simply create a new view and recreate everything. Is a new view the best solution?

Android :: Close Browser And User Back To App Programatically?

May 12, 2010

I need to launch the Browser from my application (cannot do the WebView - it has to be browser), and once I'm done with the browser, is there a way to close the Browser and the user back to the application programatically?

The problem is that user will probably press back or home keys to get out of the browser - back key will not work, and home key will put Browser and my app in the background.

I hopped that a button in the HTML displayed would close the browser but it seems like the Android seems to ignore that. Can anyone help?

Android :: Best Battery Indicator (which Doesn't Drain Battery Itself)

May 7, 2010

I have a Motorola Milestone with Android 2.1. I'd like an app which shows the battery level in the notification bar. Nothing fancy, no estimation of remaining battery life nor fancy eye candy. If it can show a more precise reading than the Milestone built-in one, which only decreases in 10% intervals, fine, but only if this isn't a drain on the battery. I know there are several such apps, but which do you think is the best for my needs? There are so many it's hard to try them all and choose. I just want something basic and simple which doesn't drain the battery. I tried "battery indicator" and "battery status pro"; they both do what I need, but I'm afraid they might be an additional drain on the battery.
