HTC Eris :: Battery Life Sucks After Root

Nov 27, 2010

I rooted my HTC Eris a couple of nights ago. The battery life sucks now. It was on the USB charger all night last night. This morning I have checked maybe 4 emails, received 5 text messages and my batter is down to 25%. I have an app killer and have everything killed.

Samsung Vibrant :: Why Battery Life Sucks

Sep 15, 2010

Well after trying evereything under the sun to get better battery life out of this vibrant, including atk, turning 3G off, installing battery apps, rooting, setcpu, lag fixes, now custom roms today. I finally know why the battery blows. I simply can't stop messing with this thing that is why! It's always in my hand like a nice comfort toy. Reminds of when the iPhone came out and I was hacking that thing to pieces updating unlocking jail breaking selling buying.

HTC EVO 4G :: Why Camcorder Sucks / Battery Life Ultra Dismal?

Jun 29, 2010

I think it's due to the battery. I recorded a video last night for all of 7 minutes and went from 80% charge to 35% charge. From what I've read from some of our bright EVO owners here I've gathered that better video quality inevitably means more battery drain. I think the phone has been handicapped in these areas because of this. I don't think the EVO could take more battery drain and still be considered functional. I doubt it would make it to 15 minutes of continuous recording on a single charge. Phone would not be good for very much after that. Between FPS and the Camera I think the EVO wouldn't be useable with improvements in those areas, the battery life would be ultra dismal. I think some of the early phones that were having battery problems wouldn't have lasted a couple of hours. I think HTC made them that way to make the battery life acceptable.

Samsung Epic 4G :: Battery Life SUCKS / Need 100% Charged

Nov 16, 2010

New user here. My battery life sucks and I seriously need help. I've had the phone for about 4 days, and I don't think I am doing too much to drain my battery at all. I connect WiFi and 4g only when available.After being unplugged for 2 hours, I am down to 85%. I have plugged in through USB and watched about 5 minutes of video, then disconnected. I've noticed that while plugged in USB in charge mode and doing anything on the phone, it charges only when the phone is on standby. It will stay at same percentage if I am doing something as little as navigating around the phone. I have 5 hours of life left according to Juice Plotter (free). I have Juice Defender (free) on and it says it has increased my battery life by x1.52. I have 4g off and bluetooth on. I updated my PRL. I toggled on/off Airplane Mode. Quit DRM. I also kill applications that I am no longer using so I never have more than 3 apps running in a short period of time.

Android :: Flash Sucks - Kills Battery Life And Heats Up

Jun 27, 2010

I have not had one good experience with Flash so far. Its laggy. The rollover stuff really is a pain. It slows down the whole phone. Kills battery life and heats up my phone enough to fry an egg. Its deja vu. I hate Apple and I hate Steve Jobs, and I was a huge supporter of Flash coming to Android, but frankly, its terribly disappointing. The tap to interact thing is really annoying and doesn't work. I tried to watch the World Cup game and it was off center in full screen mode and very laggy. since we already have youtube and hulu won't let us watch their stuff, it seems that 95% percent of Flash really is ads. Also, I tried to watch a video in a flash player and i couldn't change the volume or pause it. And when scrolling, any flash content lags in movement and slows down the whole page. Am I the only one disappointed? I mean, I know its only a beta but they have a long way to go for me to consider keeping it installed on a regular basis.

HTC Incredible :: Battery Life Decreases After Root

Sep 23, 2010

I just rooted my 2.2 phone with S_OFF and flashed it with virtuous 2.7 rom. Ever since my battery life is terrible, I have removed all the bloatware, and do not have any extra apps. This is the most trimmed down phone. I was at 100% and all I did was go to a website (yahoo.com) and within 10 secs, my battery is down to 96%. 4% drainage within 20 seconds! That is awful. Is there any advice? I tried wiping stats, bump charging. I do not have gps/bluetooth/wifi or anything that is soaking up the resources running.

Sprint HTC Hero :: Drastically Improved Battery Life / Another Good Reason To Root

Jul 23, 2010

If you're like a lot of Android users, you're obsessed with battery life and probably require a percentage widget. If you don't use a battery life widget, this probably isn't for you. I used to use Curve Fish's battery life widget which, in my initial testing months ago, didn't seem to affect battery life so I kept it and didn't think much about it.

My brother-in-law showed me a percentage indication that goes over the battery icon in the status bar on his Evo 4G. I found this hack for the Hero:
[PORT] Display Percent Battery Left within Battery Icon - Fresh 2.1.2+ - xda-developers

It adds the percentage remaining on top of your existing battery gauge in the status bar. Yes, root is required for this. At the time of writing this, I am at 14h 20m since unplugged and have 69% remaining. I would typically be between 47-53% remaining by this time. That equates to 3.5% drain per hour improved to 2.2% drain per hour. Which then comes out to around 60% increase in battery life without the loss of any features.

HTC Eris :: Which ROM Get Best Battery Life?

Aug 22, 2010

Can anybody advise me on which ROM's they run and the battery life that may get? Or, how to set SetCPU to get optimized battery life? Yes, I have read the SetCPU guide, but it doesn't really make any recommendations to actual profiles.I am currently running Ivans Official, and for me, with heavy usage, I may get a a day. I tried Plain Jane, but would only get about 8 hours. Should I consider a Froyo based ROM? From what I have read, they don't seem to be much better in terms of battery life.

HTC Eris :: Battery Life On XtrRom

Aug 18, 2010

I was curious as to what settings people were using on their phone and home launchers (pro or otherwise) to extend battery life on xtrROM. Right now I'm getting pretty crappy battery life, but I'm pretty sure the culprits are all animations and live wall papers. Just want to get a feel for what other things I can give up to keep the things that I enjoy (and yes I enjoy the LWP and animations).

Unrelated question, is any harm done to the phone by keeping USB debugging off? I had to turn it on to use SetCPU.

HTC Droid Eris :: Improve The Battery Life?

Feb 23, 2010

how to improve the battery life on my Eris, but much of it didn't seem to apply or help much. All I really got out of it was "if you turn off all of the cool features of this new smartphone, your battery will last longer". What's the point? Anyway, the problem that I'm having with my battery is that is seem to drain very, very fast. For example: I took it off of the charger today @ 7:10am. It is now 8:35am and I'm down to 85%. I'll have to put it on the charger again by 2pm. That's really terrible. I don't sit and put a heavy load on it all day with tons of surfing, etc. I have it check my email accounts once per hour, and its doing the normal smartphone things in the background (weather, etc). I'm running the GDE home app with the iDroid theme. I used to have Advanced Task Killer and would periodically kill off any running apps, but I got the impression that it drained the battery so I uninstalled it.

I'm just trying to figure out how to tell what could be going on that is running the battery down so quickly (in my mind that is). I think that something must be running that's doing it, because as a side effect, I notice that at times, the phone is very slow to respond. For instance, when I go into my email, it takes between 5 and 10 minutes to bring it up, click Menu->Delete->Mark All->Delete, then go back to main screen. Not acceptable

HTC Droid Eris :: Anyone With Improved Battery Life On 2.1?

Jun 2, 2010

I didn't at first, but I have been for at least the last week. I'm not entirely certain why, though. I used to be below 30% at the end of every day (1.5 and 2.1 OTA), regardless of how much/little I used the phone. Often having to put it on the charger when I got home from work just to make it through the evening. Lately, I've been ending my day (15+ hours off the charger) at 50-60% remaining, consistently. I'm curious to know if others have experienced this, or if it's just something weird with my phone. AFAIK, most of the data sync settings are exactly the same as they were.

Interestingly, I am leaving 3g and GPS on always, now, where I used to turn them on only when needed. Also, it seems that my mail and weather widgets are not updating as consistently, which could be leading to some increases. I have used the "end all" in System Panel a few times when the battery seemed to be draining extra fast, but I have my mail, weather, sms, etc. Excluded, so I don't know if that's it.

HTC Eris :: Battery Life Improves - Cpu Speed 19.2

Sep 16, 2010

First and foremost, I fully advocate setting your CPU speed (via SetCPU, Gscripts, or otherwise) to 19.2 MHz Minimum, On Demand, across all profiles. This will greatly improve your battery life and you will not see a decrease in performance. (NOTE: Do NOT adjust your CPU minimum to 19.2 MHz if you are running the BFS or CFS kernels.) Now, follow these steps to optimize and calibrate your actual battery: With your phone powered ON, plug it into the charger. Charge until the LED is Green, showing the phone as being fully charged. Disconnect the phone from the charger and power it OFF as quickly as possible. Once the screen and your menu lights are completely dark, showing your phone as being completely OFF, reconnect the phone to the charger. Charge until the LED is Green, showing the phone as being fully charged. Disconnect your phone from the charger. Power your phone ON and, as quickly as possible, power it back OFF. Reconnect your phone to the charger. Once the LED is Green, boot into Recovery by holding Power On + Vol Up simultaneously. In Recovery, go to Wipe > Battery Stats. Go back and Power Off your phone from Recovery. Ensure that your phone is now completely OFF and that the LED is Green. Disconnect your phone and Power On. Use as normal.

HTC Eris : Set For Balance Between Performance And Battery Life?

Aug 15, 2010

Got some great help last night getting setcpu up and running and there is some difference, mostly because I'm using LWP. I just had some questions on setting it up correctly. On the main page, you have the two scroll bars (I have both set to 710 and haven't had any problems) , under that is the Scaling option, What exactly does that do, and how should it be set for the balance between performance and battery life?

Follow up question, under profiles, is there any recommended profiles I should set up? Currently I have Screen off: 528/528 on demand with priority 50 (not sure what all of this means though). Are there any others that should be established?

HTC Eris :: Froyo ROMs Increase Your Battery Life (XDA)

Aug 26, 2010

So I'm not sure if any of you have been reading or trying out some of the SetCPU values a fellow over at XDA is suggesting. Froyo ROMs increase your battery life! try this (UPDATE 08/26/2010) - xda-developers. Basically, whatever you want your max to be (700+ish) and setting the min down to 19 (lowest it can go).

I remember reading something about it not being good to have your CPU jumping 300+ Mhz, which it clearly would be doing with these values. I would ask over there, but that place kind of scares me Just wondering if any of the fine, intelligent folks over here have any advice on this. I would love for my eris to idle at 19200 but not at the cost of my battery and/or the phone itself.

HTC Droid Eris :: Battery Life And Awake Time

Feb 28, 2010

I've read up on the battery life sticky and various other threads pertaining to battery life and awake time. But my phone seems to still be around 50-60 percent. I don't use my phone all too much, and neither do I have any programs set to auto do anything except for mail to go and do its thing. But I remembered I do have various Sense widgets... could those be draining my battery? I have the Facebook, Mail, Calender, Sense Clock, Music, Weather, A Calender reminder, and Bookmarks. I can't afford a better battery. Making 8.25 an hour really suckz. On a side note, I know that 8.25 is more than last year, and the year before that

HTC Droid Eris :: Battery Life Leaving Wi-Fi On All Time?

Mar 23, 2010

This is kind of a detailed question, but basically, I have been reading through some threads and came across someone who wrote that keeping the wifi turned on to 'never sleep' optimizes your battery life by a lot (instead of using mobile connection). So I set this up, but I also have the app Advanced Task Killer and I am trying to figure out if I need to set the wifi to the ignore list (so that it doesn't get killed everytime) or if Advanced Task Killer doesn't effect this.I am just trying to optimize my battery so I can actually use the internet without it dying on me so quickly. I charged it all night and literally 5 minutes after I unplugged it, my phone was down to 90% life.

HTC Droid Eris :: Massively Saving Battery Life

May 18, 2010

I found that really saved my battery life was either during off 3G or installing Juicedefender, which helped, but it was still draining a ton.

What I did was I checked when facebook updated my contacts to once a day instead of the default. Which I believe the default setting was Every hour, because honestly I don't need it to check every hour for a profile picture change or a few things that I normally check on my own with the facebook app.

The way you do that is

Menu->Settings->Accounts and Sync->Facebook for HTC Sense->Account Settings->Change it to Once a day.

Also I recently found out that you can use your gmail account to have it check a work e-mail or another e-mail, by using pop e-mail, so I didn't have to leave my phone set to check my work e-mail every 15 minutes and drain battery life that way, and that works really well too so your just using your gmail account for e-mail, plus your gmail account pushes to your phone every time a new e-mail comes, which it can do for a work e-mail or your gmail e-mail.

The way you set that up is,

Login to your gmail->Settings->Accounts and Imports->Under Check mail using POP3->Click add POP3 account->Then start adding your work e-mail in there

You can also select Send mail as and add your work e-mail in there, so you can just use your gmail account to send e-mail, I would prefer to use IMAP, but since I am usually in front of a computer, cleaning up my e-mail isn't too much of a job to do.

But this is a great way to use less data and to save a TON on your battery, by the time I was done with work today, I was at 80% battery, when I am normally around 40% to 50%, and after a few short phone calls and showing my mom about 100+ phones from the 3D photo gallery I am still at around 60% on my battery.
