Battery Left was the first thing I installed on my phone when I got it. My battery life has been terrible so I've been trying to track down the problem. I woke up today, unplugged my phone and didn't touch it for an hour. Battery Left says I have 70 percent left but the battery meter in the status bar showed full. I uninstalled battery left and installed Battstatt and it shows 90 percent (2 hours later). Anyone else have problems with battery left? I hope this fixes my battery problem.
yes, it is . I charged it up Sunday night. Monday evening I still had over 60%. Monday night I did not plug it in, I tuned off 3G though. This morning the battery status still showed ~60%. So what did I do (or what did I NOT do)?
(1) I did not do the battery discharge-recharge thingy. BTW, if you really *fully* discharge a Li-ion battery you will kill it. (2) I did not download any task killer/manager. This is supposed to be a smart phone to kill things when needed. (3) I do not use the Home button at all. I always use the back button. my awake time is about 10% (4) I do autosync, but my WiFi, Bluetooth and GPS is off.
I admit I am not a heavy user, though I have used up about 50 Mb data in 2 days. Peter
I guess I have my first major problem with the phone that I can't seem to figure out. As of last night, the battery icon on the top right of the screen has been showing a "?" symbol instead of the usual colored meter.
I tried charging it and the symbol doesn't change it either. Also, it does not seem to charge. I tried turning my phone on and off...and it doesn't do anything.
The thread listed here is pretty old and it does not apply to my Epic Tough running 2.3.6. I am trying to accomplish the same thing but can not seem to locate any proper info on how to do it. I am still new to reading code and messing with .smali files and xml's but I have no problem learning.
I have tried the lockscreen mods but they all seem to give me Hot Reboots since most of the framework and jar files seem to have errors in them. I can deal with out the lockscreen mod but I truly like the text based battery and CM is not a choice for me at this moment until they get it stable.
I am loving this phone, why did I ever go without a smart phone. I do have a question I have notice that after I fully charge my phone that my battery indicator goes from 100 percent to 90 percent in about an hr or so. Is that because the battery time is being rounded? So as soon as you start using it it goes to 90 percent.
Ive noticed on the phones status page the battery life percent only goes down in tens. Eg 90%, 80%, 70%.. etc Is it possible to narrow it down to single units like 76%? Ive tried some apps on the market but they all see the battery at 70% but i'd like to know if this is the upper or lower half of 70%!
I find my status bar is very cluttered and has some unnecessary icons that I'd rather not have (particularly bluetooth, alarm, and battery [I use Battery Status app]). I found this article on how to remove the stock battery icon but it's designed for the Samsung Moment. Anyone brave enough to try it on their Evo? [Mod] Remove Battery Icon from Status Bar
I used to be on a custom ROM called Cyanogenmod and really liked their circle battery icon in the status bar. I'm on a different ROM now that has no features and uses the stock android icon and I'm wondering if it's possible to get a white version of the cyanogenmod icon without having to change ROMs. I'm on an unlocked and rooted verizon galaxy nexus on 4.4.
When i check my battery usage its saying that Maps has been using 90 percent of the battery. Its been doing this the last couple days even with me charging it at night. I didnt use maps at all today and its not showing up in my app manager as running, or a newly downloaded task killer. Its not really affecting my battery life which is weird and doesnt make sense. So i was just wondering if anyone else was having this problem(sorta more like inconvienence)?
Has anyone recently seen ridiculous battery drain on their Eris? I know people are saying the new facebook is stuck on contact syncing and draining the battery, but it cant be draining it this much. Today when I was at work is where I noticed it the most. I started at 1 and when my group took a break at 2:42 I had lost 65% battery life!
I just got my Eris 2 weeks ago and all of a sudden my battery life is dieing very quickly and i looked to see why and it says that my camera has used like 80 percent of it..... and i don't even use it that often.
I had read that the froyo update helped battery life. Granted I have only had the phone 3 days, I am not noticing great battery life. I have everything shut off that I should, and I have done a factory reset right after the froyo update.
I don't understand what is root the phone , flash the phone using ODIN to save battery .
Also my phone rightnow when I check the battery information , it said " Android system 88% of battery" " Phone Standon 6% " , Is this because the new Android 1.6 making my battery drainning so fast because rightnow I am using with a little of playing around , WIFI , and then I turn off the WIFI again , the battery still didn't last for at least 24 hours . I didn't making too much calling also .
The battery status is horrible. Why does it look like it's at 50% when at 30%? I downloaded an app that puts the percentage in the status bar, but it's at the top left in notifications. Is there an app that replaces the current icon with one with a percentage or, at least, is more accurate? I doubt there is. I didn't find anything on Marketplace or through search.
I'm looking for an app that'll allow the default status bar on my Droid to show the battery life in percentages. I know I've seen a screenshot of this somewhere, but I can't seem to do a search here or find it on the Marketplace.
So earlier today I flashed cyanogen's rom and noticed that the battery icon on the notification bar had the battery % on the battery, the built in one not the on from the battery indicator app, and I thought that looked really slick. I was wondering if there was a way I could get that thru using metamorph or something.
