General :: How Do Running Services Effect Battery Life And Responsiveness

May 8, 2013

I have been using HTC Desire S for about 2 yrs now, but since I am not a power user, I just use it as it came. Now considering to root it and was looking more closely at things and I see there are many services running in the background under "Running".

I don't know the inner workings of Android system, so would like to know if more services are running (especially from apps which I don't regularly use) then does it effect battery life and does it make the phone slower ?

For example under Calendar, 4 services are running - AutoSettingService, ImmediateModeService, DashboardService,ConnecttoPcService.

Google Maps has TrafficAppWidgetUpdateService and PrefetcherService ( I rarely use Google maps because I use offline rmaps)

Another thing is I have a prepaid connection without a data plan so I would like to control which apps connect to the net when i switch on 3G - i mean I would prefer if only the app which I want to use the data should use it, while others should not.

And there are some things taking data, which i don't really understand - but since they are related to Android system I am not sure whether to try to restrict them (Android System, HTC Function test, HTC Checkin service, Settings storage, VPN, Status bar, Bluetooth, Google backpp transport, etc, Phone, Dialer Storage, SIM toolkit)

Any general idea about these services - battery and network usage and effect on responsiveness ?

General :: LAN And Mobile Data Active Simultaneously?

May 17, 2013

Any way for keeping LAN via WIFI and Mobile data active simultaneously ?

I ask this because I need to use both networks at the same time, my 3G for internet and wifi for my local network, i need to connect my phone to check a PC via VNC, but the internet where the PC is connected is very slow, so I want to connect my phone. But when i connect my phone to the wifi all the data tries to flow for the wifi which is slower than 3G (in this case).

My phone is a GS3 International, running ParanoidAndroid

Android :: T-Mobile G1 Won't Appear In Adb Devices List

Aug 27, 2010

I'm trying to connect to connect to my T-Mobile G1 to test a simple android app I an creating. I cannot get it to show up in the list of connected android devices. Here are the details: - 32-bit Windows XP - I have enabled USB Debugging on my device - I am not prompted with the New Hardware Wizard when I plug my device in, it is merely seen as a new removable drive. It does not appear under any other categories in Device Manager, nor is there a new "Unknown Device" entry anywhere to be found - I have tried "Update Driver" and select the driver that Google provides for their official developer devices, but it says "this driver does not match your device" or something to that effect. Probably because it is expected a device type other than "Disk Drive" - I have tried uninstalling the device under "Disk Drives" and plugging it in again but it always gets reinstalled automatically as a "Disk Drive" - I have tried uninstalling the device, manually installing the Google driver from the INF file and plugging in the device and it is still only recognized as a "Disk Drive" - Most importantly, I get a blank device list when I run "adb devices" from the Android SDK tools directory before and after each step I tried After hours of scouring the web I get the distinct impression that a new device category should be popping up in Device Manager if the driver is installed correctly, but I have not been able to get the device to come up as anything other than a new "Disk Drive"

Android :: Why Would Hulu Block Mobile Devices?

Aug 4, 2010

I don't see the logic behind this. The more people who watch hulu means more people who are looking at ads. And the more people who look at ads, the more money hulu makes. The only logic I could see behind this is that a Hulu Plus app is coming to the Android market, but I haven't heard anything about that.What's your take on this?

I have been using LibTomCrypt to use SHA1 encryption ( for data integrity checking ) on mobile devices (iPhone OS and Android for the moment ).

HTC Incredible :: Battery Icon - Hour Glass Effect

Jul 15, 2010

Does anyone else's battery go as such - full for a bit, then nothing but the nipple gone for half the day, then suddenly what looks like half left out of no where? No matter how much I use my phone. Like I guess I am looking for an "hour-glass" effect here, it should slowly drain until it's empty. I have never seen my battery icon look 3/4 of the way full, it just skips right over that look on my phone.

Motorola Droid :: Battery Life - Or Battery Widget

Mar 16, 2010

Background info:

- I'm running the "Battery Left" widget and I have it displaying "estimated percentage left", "system percentage", and "estimated time left until dead".

- I listen to A LOT of Slacker Radio.

My issues:

- I was previously getting about 19+ hours out of a fully charged battery. 2-3 days ago I started having issues with the widget (I think it may have started when I installed an update to the widget) so I recalibrated it to no avail. Then I uninstalled it and reinstalled it. Within a few hours it claimed that it was getting accurate readings (when I first installed the widget weeks ago, it took days to get accurate) and now says that I should be getting 9 hours out of a fully charged battery. I know that can't be right so I'll see how the widget adjusts itself over the next few days, but, any thoughts? (I know a lot of you guys use the same widget and know how it works...)

- Also, In the first two hours of my phone being unplugged this morning, it went from 100% to 70%. I did run Slacker for about an hour and a half of that time, but could it really drain the battery that much that quickly? And I noticed that when I close Slacker, if I go into phone settings, applications, running services - there's still a Slacker update thing running in there. Could that be draining the battery too, even if it's only checking for updates?

- I really don't run a lot of stuff on this phone. I keep wifi and gps turned off. I use bluetooth only a few hours each night. Minimal web browsing. Although, my POP email gets checked every 5 mins (but I just changed it to every 10) and I do use gchat and text a decent amount, but I'd say overall, it's "light" use (except for Slacker which could be a huge drain, right?)

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.

Android :: How To Manage Battery Health Of Development Devices When Always Plugged In

May 27, 2010

I know this question is not programming related, so for this I made community wiki. Developers are the best guys to answer the question.

I am addressed to those that do development on devices that runs on batteries, like phones, gadgets etc. Probably you are constantly develop for them, and therefor they are always plugged in and charged at 100%. We develop mainly for smartphones and we have devices that were always above 90% charged in the last month or so.

If a battery is always charged, it degrades it life cycle, so what steps you do to ensure decent battery drain to maximize the life of the batteries.
