HTC Incredible :: Poor Battery Life Due To GPS Bug

Aug 5, 2010

I'm trying to decide between the Droid X and the Incredible. I found this link in the Droid X forum, regarding a potential cause for poor battery life. Could this issue be plaguing the Incredible as well?

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.

Motorola Droid X :: Poor Battery Life With 2.2?

Oct 24, 2010

Has anyone else noticed much poorer battery life on the Droid X since updating to 2.2? I find my phone running low on juice much quicker now than it ever was with 2.1, even after rooting and installing SetCPU. I typically leave bluetooth, wifi, and GPS all turned off unless I am specifically using them, so I am not sure what is causing this battery drain.

Samsung Captivate :: Battery Life Pretty Poor

Aug 5, 2010

My battery life has been pretty poor to this point, so I have been going from full charge to completely empty. I was doing that today when my phone shut off because it was out of battery. I then went and plugged it in for about four minutes, then realized I needed something so I unplugged and turned it back on, and now am showing 43% battery! I figured it was a glitch with the stock battery display, so downloaded the BatteryLife widget, which confirms I have 43%. Does this mean I need to complain to AT&T to get a new battery, or a new phone? Update: I rebooted the phone again and was at critically low battery life. I reseated the battery and rebooted again, and now I'm at 5%.

Motorola Droid :: Poor Battery Life - Signal

Nov 26, 2009

I'm sure many of the "poor battery life" reports were pre-mature, as people didn't realize their new rechargable has to condition itself, but today I ran into a new situation. This is my second Droid, since replacing original, due to wanting to confirm a faulty antenna, and trying to solve the 3G->1x issue.

Reception at my house is a crap shoot, where moving my phone 6 inches on my desk make speed tests go from 1.5Mb to 300k. So today I'm at mom's, 2 miles away, and we are both equidistant from the VZ store, which is also 2 miles away. However at her house, I pretty much get (0) bars. I left my house with about a 95% charge, pulling it from the plug before I left. I used it maybe 15min to try to resolve her router issue. After 6 days, my battery was good for a at least 18-24hrs of light browsing and mail checking. Well today, It was down to 50% after 3 hours, while flipping back and forth from 3G ->1x. I had (0) bars most of the time and noticed that the battery was warmer than usual. Signal strength was between -95dBM and -110dBm. Now "almost" 5 hours after pulling from the plug, I'm down to 20%. If my hypothesis is correct, I bet the charge will last the night now that the channels have stabilized.

Sprint HTC Hero :: Poor Battery Life Or High Awake Times

Jul 12, 2010

For those that suffer from poor battery life or high awake times, I was given a code to enter that will give you all kinds of hidden info about the battery and what programs are running in the background keeping the phone from sleeping. Hit phone, as if you were dialing a number to call, enter *#*#4636#*#*, then talk. You will seee a menu come up that you can change to show you all kinds of hidden info on the phone and battery. Hope this helps some of you that are suffering poor battery performance and high awake times.

Motorola Droid X :: Poor Reception Area - Killing Battery Life - Disable 3G?

Aug 2, 2010

I am currently on a new client where it's constantly on 1X and occasionally switches back to 3G with 0 bars, then back to 1X. I got in to work at 8:30 am and by 5:00 the battery was at 30%. Battery Manager shows Cell Standby as 21% of the battery usage. I had about a 15 minute call this morning (presumably on 1X, I didn't check) and have not used the Internet at all for the rest of the day. This is obviously unacceptable. On my Droid Eris, there was a way to turn off the Mobile Network and use only 2G/1X for calls. I have researched and not found a similar option for the Droid X (Why would Motorola leave this out?) Does anyone know what my options are? I've heard you can go into the #*#*INFO*#*# menu and set it to 2G only, then restart, but that would be a pain to do every morning.

Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 :: Call Volume Low Fixed Asap2 / Battery Life Very Poor

Aug 10, 2010

so what if each of uses this thread to clearly state the problems that they are having with the X10, please don't go on about firmware updates etc as this isn't an actual problem, we all knew the firmware the phone was running when we bought it, so therefore I feel we have to accept that is down to us as we made the choice to buy the phone. Please be polite and concise and hopefully Jeff or someone from SE will take the time to read the thread and answer in due course, remember though it may take a little time for people to post the problems they are having and also for Jeff and co to find the answers for us.

please pop in and acknoledge the posts every now and then, just so we know our complaints aren't falling on deaf ears. I am hving problems with 1/ In call volume is very low and needs to be fixed asap 2/ Battery Life is very poor, I mainly only send texts at the moment as I cant hear calls and also use the ebook reader for maybe an hour or two a day, yet I have to charge the phone halfway through the day, even though I fully chatge it at night.....

HTC Magic :: Sluggish Performance / Poor Battery

Sep 12, 2009

I just got an HTC Magic from Rogers a few days ago and I'm noticing that it's running REALLY slow. The lag is unreal when I text and the battery dies very quickly. I have TWO widgets open (calendar and Google search) and the transition from sliding screens is sluggish. I rooted my phone a few days ago. Could this be the problem? Has anyone else experienced this? I heard that Sense UI is supposed to cause problems, but I haven't heard anything regarding Cupcake.

Android :: AsyncTask Preformance Issue On Many AsyncTasks Spawning

Sep 19, 2010

I'm about to create a lazy image loader for images both from device and from the web for a ListView. I'm thinking of what to use and how, on one hand i can use a thread that pools my request (always running, and i can attach a view and an adapter and it will handle the image loading for me), cache my allready loaded images and checks for the visibility of the images before i load so i wont do unneeded job.

I had another thought of using the AsyncTask like many suggest in the forum. Terhe is one drawback though.I see that many use new MyTask().execute(urls); this presents a problem if i want to start loading and stop loading images on demand. If i use the async task per image then i need new async task for each image, that's a lot of 'new' to make, i can use a pool, but if too many async tasks are stuck, i will still create about 150-200 asyc tasks, too many for my taste...

What do you guys think ? i think a thread will do a nicer job here:
1. keep on running till killed
2. try to get a job from the queue, if not jobs, wait.
3. if a job is available, get it and start processing.
4. each request is processed alone,serially and blocks the thread.
5. once does goes on with '2'.
6. each enqueue that is done by the adapter using startLoadingImage() for views that need to be displayed will create anew job and call notify on the wait lock.

I can optimize this code with a pool of threads if i want several GETPOST requests in parallel. Also I'm caching the images i already downloaded loaded for fast load on next access. the idea is to minimize GC and list's slagging.

Samsung EPIC 4G :: Poor Battery Charging Time

Sep 23, 2010

I am coming to the conclusion that the poor battery charge time is a result of the batteries and not the phone. The reason I believe this to be true is: I purchased the charger that comes with a spare battery and it takes a good 3-4 hours to charge in that, with no phone attached. Batteries in my previous phones would take an hour to fully charge in a dedicated charger. I bet when Seidio comes out with batteries for this phone, we will see much better charge times and possibly better battery life.

Motorola Droid :: People With Poor Battery Performance

Dec 10, 2009

I see some people in the forums bragging about how great their batteries are and i am jealous I took mine of the charger at 7:00 this morning and at 3:00 my phone was already down to 40 percent. My question for the users that also seem to have poor battery life is, once your phone reaches 40% does a reboot give you more battery life? Every time my phone reaches 40% a reboot brings mine back up to 60%. This happens every time so it is not a coincidence or a onetime thing. I am curios if the reporting is off because it is almost 5:00 and i just did a reboot and now I have 60% left. I can live with 40% usage from 7:00 to 5:00 but I can't live with 60% usage from 7:00 to 3:00

HTC EVO 4G : Battery Dies Faster - Caused By Poor Reception - Network

Jul 14, 2010

I used to get my battery to last from 8am to about 10pm at night with it in the red zone. Recently though I have been working more from home and now have an airave and connect to the wifi network. Now all of a sudden when I go to bed I'm over half maybe even 3/4 of the battery is left.

My thinking is some of the battery drain may be caused by poor reception. For those of you with battery issues or issues on some days and not others, look at how much reception your getting in addition to use and radios and all that. Maybe the problem is sprints network.

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?)

Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 :: Poor Battery Charge / Can't Add Contacts To Address Book?

Jul 2, 2010

I was aware of the poor customer reviews of the x10's battery life, but it's turned out to be much worse than expected.

I will take the phone off of charge at 8am and ensure that no tasks or apps are running, not use the phone throughout the day, then by 3pm the charge level is around 30%. Often, if I don't start charging the phone at that point at work, the phone will run out of charge completely by around 4pm. I check throughout the day and tasks are not running, so how is the charge being lost so quick?!

This problem is not getting better: I read customer reviews saying that the battery problem improves after around the first month, but my case is the opposite - it started to get even worse after the first month!

I am also having a problem with adding contacts to the address book - all of a sudden it seems that I cannot add new contacts. I will add one contact, go back to the address book and see the new contact being displayed in the list, but when adding a second new contact both the first and second new contacts disappear. I do not have a problem with phone memory, I have tried saving to both SIM and memory, have tried backing up my address book in case that makes a difference, have switched the phone off/on again, but all to no avail. I have tried adding a new number to an existing contact and the new contact seems to disappear. It goes without saying that I have read the x10 instructions on this subject (and it goes without saying that I make sure to press save/done when adding the new entry).

It's got to the point where I am starting to regret choosing the X10. On the face of it, this is an excellent phone, but two relatively simple problems are ensuring that I feel like I own the poor man's smartphone (dare I say it, I wish I chose an iPhone now).

I checked with both my network operator and the shop I bought it from - unfortunately I am outside the 28 day initial period (I am in the UK), so the only recourse offered to me by the shop is to give me 20 to buy either a new battery or to buy a new cheap pay as you go phone so that I can return the handset/battery to SE. The problem with both options is that I am not confident that it will resolve the problem.

Anyone else had any issues like this?

HTC EVO 4G :: HTC EVO Poor Picture And Poor Sound Quality

Jul 23, 2010

I use to own a palm pre before I switched to HTC EVO. I think the evo is a great phone but the two things I missed so much about my palm pre is the camera and the sound qualities.

The EVO is said to use 8MP for its camera but honestly the camera quality is nothing compare to the palm pre. Simply put, the camera and the sound output on the evo sucks.

You can clearly notice the difference between the pictures I took using the pre and the evo. The pre gives far better picture quality and also better sound output. I always enjoy plays my sounds or using pandora on my pre, but with the evo the different is the case. The sound quality with the evo is horrible even when plugged to good speakers.

I bearly take picture with the evo because I am used to good picture quality with my pre.

I have had the evo for less than two weeks and i am seriously thinking of returning it because of these two issues.

I really want to know, is this poor picture and poor sound qualities a thing with the evo in general or is it just with the particular evo that I got.

HTC Incredible :: Poor Incredible Sound Quality - Poor Verizon Customer Service

May 26, 2010

I (like hundreds of others) have had a call quality problem with the two Droid Incredibles I purchased for my wife and myself when they were released on April 30th. Verizon recognized that there was a problem and replaced both devices with ones manufactured about a month later (5/02) and the same issue with poor voice quality continued.

We love the device EXCEPT for the lack of ability to understand callers. So, I asked Verizon to extend our 30-day opt out to give them an opportunity to work out the issues with this device. I just received a call from Verizon customer service (which I could barely understand) and was told they would not extend the 30 day period and my option was to live with the poor sound quality or switch to another device. Verizon has no other devices that were interested in at this time so well be canceling these two lines (and one other) and returning to T-Mobile. T-Mobile may not have the best coverage, but they do have great customer service, unlike Verizon.

HTC Desire :: Battery Life In 2.2

Jul 25, 2010

I rooted and put "Official Froyo HTC Sense ROM". Seems to work fine, however, I have a feeling that battery life is worse, especially when using the net. However, maybe it's just in my head. What are your experiences with battery life after upgrading to 2.2? And please, don't make silly "I surfed the web for 12 hours and still have 25% left" claims Also, I'm not interested in other ROMs, as I want a clean sense experience with no modifications (as close as possible to the way HTC made it)So - 2.2 and battery life: same, worse or better than on 2.1 that came with your Desire?
