Samsung Captivate :: Way To Maximize Battery Life?

Jul 20, 2010

I have been having some battery issues on my Captivate and can only seem to get through 12 or so hours with minimal use and it is quite bothersome. The main reason I bought the phone was because of its battery life and so far, I am disappointed. For instance, I charged my phone all night, woke up and made a less than one minute phone call, looked at my status and I was at 96%. As the day went on with minimal use, it seems to drain without me even touching it. As of now (13 hours later), my battery icon is blue and showing halfway full, but the battery status says 36% which does not add up to me. I also don't have a live wallpaper and have Advanced Task Manager that kills all apps as well as GPS and Wifi turned off. Any tips? Should I take it back and get a new one or see if I can get a new battery?

Motorola Droid :: Battery Power With Phone Off

Nov 19, 2009

I turn my droid off overnight, and the next morning it is completely dead. I turned it off with 50% battery left on it. Anyone else seeing their battery dead the next morning if they turn it off ?Thinking I have a bad battery here. Didn't do this when I first got it. But then again..battery life has not been that great.

Motorola Droid :: Power Off And On Instead Pull Battery To Reset?

Jan 18, 2010

I'm coming from a blackberry where a "power off then back on" is different than a "battery pull" to soft reset the phone. But whats the deal with the Droid? Can I really just get away with "powering off then back on" instead of having to pull the battery to reset?

Aug 25, 2010

I am trying to maximize the battery life of my phone. I keep coming across an app refereed to as AUTOKILLER?

Just what is this app, and what are the benefits? If I am running SetCPU, do I need to run both? Do I need Advanced Task Killer too?

(FYI, I am running Cyanogen Tazz 1.0, and besided not having the trackball light up, I am loving it. I just want to get optimized battery life)

HTC Droid Eris :: Battery Killer - Google Talk Service

May 20, 2010

Thought it would be a prudent thread to list all of the battery killing apps and processes (ie don't shut down right)that have been found in 2.1. The one that I found, the hard way after 3 straight days of only getting 10 hours of battery life, is the Google Talk service. I accidentally opened it and System Panel didn't kill it. I only found it by looking at Battery Uses>Running Services.

HTC Eris :: Undervaluing / Battery Save Without CPU Killer

May 4, 2010

Ok, so im not really as concerned about overclocking the CPU, but since the phone is basically a computer. I am curious if anyone knows how to undervolt the CPU? This can easily be done on laptops with the help of apps like rightmark CPU. Basically you keep the clock speed the same (or overclock it) but you reduce the voltage at each cpu cycle. You do this on a laptop with an application such as rightmark and you continue to undervolt until your system crashes. Which basically means your CPU has become unstable. Then you raise the voltage a few notches back up to the point before the crash and run it for a few days.why would anyone care? Well the effect is you keep the same speed (or faster) BUT you use less energy.... which means longer battery times. I've undervalued the last 3 laptops I've had two half the voltage. Now my hunt begins for an undervolt app for Android. The semiconductor manufactures leave a "generic" setting. But, each piece of silicon is different, and came from relatively different parts of a wafer. So some parts can hold up to less voltage without becoming unstable. Hence why one cpu can be undervalued dramatically and others (of the exact same chip set) can barely get undervalued without crashing right away. This is why they leave it at a generic safer voltage.

HTC Incredible :: Cell Standby - Battery Killer

Apr 30, 2010

I was just wondering if anyone had the same issue as I do, with about 44% of my battery use coming from the notorious call standby.

I heard some speculation that this is akin to the issue with the Eris 2.1, so it would be solved by the Airplane Mode trick, but I have not found any results favoring that remedy.

HTC Incredible :: AppBrain Market A Battery Killer?

Jul 2, 2010

I just installed AppBrain Market yesterday. I have done one phone power off since then. I was just looking in at apps in my System Panel app and noticed that the AppBrain market is listed as cached but is still hitting the cpu like every couple seconds. Anyone else noticed this behavior? Is this normal? I'm going to try manually killing the app.

Motorola Droid :: Application Killer Not Working

May 27, 2010

This is irritating the hell out of me. I have Advanced App Killer (free). It kills apps for about 30 seconds. Then as soon as I do ANYTHING besides a phone call, let's say open the web browser, I have multitudes of open apps running. Some of the real pain in the asses are: Gallery, Voice search, Alarm clock,Corporate Calendar, and Voice Dialer. I don't open them. They just reappear like a relative that just can't stay home. Is there any kind of Start Up manager for Android 2.1? Advanced App Killer just isn't doing the job.

Motorola Droid X :: Task Killer Not Install?

Jul 17, 2010

I've read a few users on here saying to NOT install task killer on Droid X (or any phones running 2.1 or higher). Wanted to know the reason for this? Or if any of you disagree with this? I currently have it running on my X cause it seems there are constantly unwanted apps running.

Which actually leads to my next question :Why does it seem apps on my phone are constantly running by themselves? Im new to android phones, but on my previous phone (blackberry) no apps would start by themselves after the phone was running?

Anyway should I be running app killer or should I not be concerned with the apps running in the background on their own? What will hurt my battery and/or performance more?

Motorola Droid :: GPS Vs Task Killer Vs Camcorder

May 28, 2010

I had a task killer, and life was good. Then I noticed that my GPS was acting up, and after reading this thread ( I tried uninstalling my task killer, and lo and behold, my GPS starting working great.

And the people rejoiced.

But then I noticed when I took video, I'd get this video pixelation followed by my video and audio being totally out of sync. I followed this thread (Occasional Video Pixelation and Audio/Video Sync Issues - Droid Forum - Verizon Droid & the Motorola Droid Forum) and realized it was basically the phone not having enough free memory off the bat, then getting mucked up in the middle of recording. There's a workaround listed in the thread about taking a dummy video, backing out of the camera app, then going back in, but honestly, that just means I'll stop taking video.

So it looks like it would be great if I could just clear the memory before taking the video, everything would be fine. Unfortunately, this means installing a task manager, and messing up my GPS.

So you see the problem.

I tried managing the apps through Settings > Applications > Running Services but I have no idea what I'm doing in there, and "25mb + 12mb in 4 Other: 62mb in 4" is Greek to me.

To sum up:

Task Killer = No GPS, Yes Video Camcorder
No Task Killer = GPS, No Video Camcorder

Thoughts on how I can get GPS and Video Camcorder to work without a hitch without installing a task manager?

Motorola Droid X :: Slick Task Manager And App Killer

Jul 27, 2010

So I have read all the comments on ATK and task killers in general, and have decided I don't want to mess with one. BUT, on, they have a weekly app roundup where they review a few apps every week. I came across one today called MultiTask Manager. When you open it, it basicallly lists what apps are running in a scrolling ribbon at the bottom of the screen. Tap to open one, or long press to get the option to kill it. EXACTLY what I was looking for. And let me tell you, being new to Android, I had no idea how many apps keep running in the background if not closed properly. I can't wait to see how my battery life is now. If you want, here is the article to get the app or scan below!

I am new to android, I have been spending the past 2 weeks on the forum scanning through all the posts trying to pick up some off the tricks and other things I am gonna need to not break my phone and get the most out of it. One thing I haven't found a clear answer on though is task killer apps on froyo. I've read that with froyo, you don't need a task killer because it does it well enough on its own and might bug the os out by closing apps that should be closed, and ive read other wise. So does anyone have the definite answer?

Motorola Droid X :: Didn't Install Task Killer

I've had my DX for about a week now. At first the battery life was just terrible. Now it seems to be improving a little bit more every day. I didn't install a task killer or anything either.I saw some threads where some have experienced this with other phones but didn't see any with the DX. Anyone else have a similar experience with the DX? Sorry if this has already been discussed. I looked but didn't see it.

Motorola Droid :: Standard Task Killer Response

Feb 24, 2010

just venting, but i am sick of the standard "task killer" response for any problem with the droid. i have all of 4 apps installed outside of the default apps my droid comes with. i am on droid number 3 due to poor mic performance and horrible sound. my wife is on droid number 4 due to mic just cutting out in the beginning of every call. service at the store and on the phone is ridiculously bad. if you have any problem, their standard response is to make it your fault for downloading apps. on a smartphone. argh. and, by the by, i have run my phone vanilla (only default apps) and run into same problem for every call.
