Samsung Behold 2 :: Phone Lag And Battery Life

Mar 1, 2010

I know this phone isn't know for blinding speed (at least running it stock), but lately it's having trouble keeping up with text input from the keyboard. Is this normal? I am using taskiller to kill any not needed background apps and normally have over 120mb left in RAM. Any tips on what I can do to fix this? I'm trying to hold off rooting until I get the t-mobile update. Also, does the phone normally give inaccurate battery readings to the widgets? Because I am literally looking at the phone and watching the percentage go up... up 6 percent in the last hour. lol anyone else getting this?

Samsung Behold 2 :: How To Save Battery Life With Android 1.6?

May 15, 2010

As I just got my phone with installed rom 1.6 for the Behold 2, I am frustrating when the battery life drains so fast after last night. I was playing a bit with the WiFi and the battery status bar was still less then half bar. After I woke up today, the battery has shown that the battery is less than 5%. I did turn off my WiFi and using only 2g network to save battery life. I clicked on "why", it showed the Green Bar with the word Android System 95%. What does this mean and how can I save more battery life since I don't use it the whole night. So the phone suppose to be less than half bar battery life at least.

1.Putting the phone in sleep can save battery life or not on the Behold II?
2.What are some ways that can save the battery life on the Behold II?
3.Does the charging technique can at least save some part the of the battery life? If so , How do I charge my Behold II ? Leaving it all drain out, turning off the phone and then charge it ?

Here are some ways that I have read in android forums
1. use spare app
2. use task manager
I didn't try these two.

Samsung Behold 2 :: Meter Reporting Values / Battery Life?

Jan 1, 2010

So i am working on the m900 battery issue right now and we know exactly what is wrong with the meter reporting values (samsung set 15% to = 3.74V while the nominal voltage is 3.7 so it reports 15% when it is really more like 60-40% somewhere in that region).Does the behold 2 suffer from this same problem or is there really a battery life from full charge to phone wont turn on?If you dont have this issue, and have access to the open source files for it please let me know.. i need the battery.c and .h since these phones use the same battery

HTC Incredible :: Please Stop With Battery Life Speculation?

May 10, 2010

I have many devices, Archos 5, Gmini 402, Ngage, Dash, G1, Moto Droid (for two weeks), N900, Zen 32gb, Dingoo, DS, M11X and other devices (too many- I admit).The one common thing with all of these devices is they use basically the same battery technology. What do some folks expect out of a 1300mah battery having to do all this:

1. 3.7" hi res screen

2. Mulit-tasking in OS

3. Social apps

4. 3G

5. Wifi

6. GPS

7. Flash vids

8. Games

9. Audio & video decoding

10. 1ghz snapdragon

The device needs a bigger battery, or access to the chipset, so people use an app like SetCPU to set profiles for more relative dynamic clocking (for how user, uses the device).Perhaps rooting the device just for SetCPU would be worth the effort to to root? Maybe so.

OK so the reason im posting this here is because I'm confused.

HTC Desire : Extremely Bad Battery Life - Running Froyo

Aug 22, 2010

After the 2.2 update, my battery has been starting to be extremely bad. I recharged it yesterday until it was 100% charged. Now, 18 hours later, the battery is at 15%.

I only used my HTC Desire to do this:

1. Listening to offline songs through Wimp, a Spotify-clone, for about an hour.

2. Texting 3-4 sms.

3. Doing 1 call.

4. Having it on while I was asleep.

My battery was usually lasting 3-4 days with this kind of use, but now it's so bad.

Here are the running apps (if that is of anyones interest):
com.fd.httpd - 2.9MB
net.rgruet.android.g3watchdog - 2.9MB
com.metago.astro - 2.8MB
com.aspiro.wamp - 10MB
com.lookout - 4.4MB
com.htc.bgp - 12MB
com.google.process.gapps - 7.6MB
com.facebook.katana - 14MB
com.swype.android.inputmethod - 15MB

Does anyone suffer from something similar?

HTC Eris : Running Several Settings On SetCPU But Still Low Battery Life

Aug 16, 2010

I have tried several different Froyo Roms over the past very weeks. I still can't get any good battery life out of them compaired to running EE3.0. Yet everyone tells me they get better battery life while running Froyo. My phone has currently been unplugged for 9hrs 13 mins. It has a total of 50 mins talk time and I have sent 30+ text messages. My battery level is @ %73 running EE3.0

I can't get a total of 11hrs out of my phone when running any of the Froyo Roms. Ive tried running several different settings on SetCPU but nothing noticable. Only thing I notice is that when running Froyo the largest use of my battery is my Display. Yet when running EE3.0 the largest use is Cell Standby and Display is the lowest. But I have tried turning the brightness almost all the way down on the Froyo ROM but it doesn't make any difference.

Motorola Droid 2 :: Running Applications List And Battery Life

Nov 15, 2010

Just got a Droid 2 and I'm tinkering around. I saw the "Running Apps" list and its pretty useful if I say so myself. However is it necessary to go in there and stop apps that I'm not using all the time to save battery life? Do apps still run after their closed, because Facebook was running after use. And when stopping apps my phone tells me that "this can have undesired consequences on the app" which scared me a bit. I haven't even done my first charge yet, but my battery went down about 40% in about 2 and a half hours.

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 ?

Since I upgraded my Desire to Froyo I am having trouble closing the apps. I use 'advanced task killer' to kill the apps.

Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 :: How To Stop Apps From Auto-starting / Running?

Aug 23, 2010

I have the kill app program, but that doesn't work automatically. The best way is to kill the unnecessary apps that load when the phone starts and persistently load themselves at intervals.Is there a way or an apk to download to select the apps that we allow to auto-run? All without rooting, if at all possible.

Motorola Droid :: GPS Apps And Battery Life

Apr 22, 2010

I'm going on a hike this weekend and thought it'd be a good time to test out either Google Tracks or CardioTrainer to see elevation gain, time, speed, etc. The hike should last about 4 hours. How will my battery hold up with the GPS on the whole time? Assuming these apps have the GPS constantly draining the battery, which I imagine they do.

Samsung Behold 2 :: Running Stock Android 2.0

Dec 28, 2009

I am looking at getting the behold 2. I really like the form factor and screen. What I don't like, is how sluggish it seems to be. From what I have heard, this is due to the fact that samsung has totally messed up the UI with that damn useless cube and other things.

Can this phone be wiped and then install a stock android 1.5, 1.6 or even 2.0? I am going to get it anyway regardless because I am still stuck in the dumb phone world, and can't even come close to upgrading. I'd wait for the nexus one, but without an upgrade I won't be able to afford it. SO I will stick with this one for a while.

Samsung Behold 2 :: Strange Processes Running

Jan 2, 2010

Well, I decided to keep my Behold and let the ol' 2g iPhone go.Most of my stuff on this phone seems to be working fairly well. Decent battery life, nothing hangs up too bad.But, I just installed ATK and it's weird.I kill all the processes, then they mysteriously come back a little while later without being open by me.Why? Yet the available memory seems damn decent, 100 available most of the time.Also I installed LockBot And every once in a while it just wont be on my screen. It will just go back to it's original hit unlock to unlock screen.
