    What could be draining my battery??

    It seems like my battery is draining more quickly than normal. Is there a way to kill all apps that are running in the background? I mean apps that could be draining battery.

    This is the one thing that is driving me nuts about this phone...I even have the extended battery.

    I need to know how to fix this or I am going back to the iphone.

    What apps do you have that are draining your battery? What does your screen on times say? What are your expectations of battery life on a 4.65" high resolution Android device?






    Before you flash anything can you get back to stock? How to get back to stock using Odin



    Have you backed up your files and pictures? I see too many desperate cries for help recovering deleted priceless pictures with no solution.

    That is my question...what apps could be draining my battery??? gmail? exchange? I have 4 email accounts.

    It's 2012, I expect a phone to last a whole day with decent use. I have the extended battery as well, so I expect a lot.

    I admit that I am android newbee, but this seems crazy to me.

    Have you tried using an app like Elixir 2 that monitors all aspects of your phone usher and processes?

    Wow, you have alot of awake time. The first thing I would try is a battery pull(leave the power on and pull the battery) and leave the battery out for a minute. If that doesnt fix it get better battery stats and see what is keeping your phone awake. I had a problem that Google sync got stuck on and the battery pull fixed it. I am on stock 4.02, rooted and unlocked and I find that android OS is my second biggest drain, behind on screen time.

    That is horrendous battery life dude.
    Did u load a kernel? What rom r u on?

    I would flash James bond kernal. It works great and will allow ur phone to sleep.
    That's unless u have a rogue app crushing ur battery. It could be a bad flash of either ur rom or theme as well. Make sure to check the md5sum of the things u flashed.

    I am a relative novice when it comes to phone modding. My buddy helps me with it. I am going to show him this past tomorrow.

    Here is my phone data:

    It's hard to tell what is draining your battery. As Ray stated try badass battery monitor and that should narrow it down to certain apps or widgets. What is your screen on time?
