I know we have a lot of battery life threads and I absolutely love this phone but mine is not getting good battery life. I'm an advanced android user, I know it well and I do know that some devices just have bugs which kill battery life.
My upgrade is coming and I have seen all about the s3 and messed around with the one at best buy, but with all its awesome features, how good is its battery life? Since its school season, I will basically use it for music and texting with the wifi and 3g off if that helps.
First, here's the constants: I keep wifi/BT/GPS on 100% of the time. This was true when battery life was good, and now that battery life is bad. Disabling these will improve battery life, but will not fix my problem.
When the phone is sleeping overnight, I used to get 8-12% battery usage over about 8 hours.
All my songs and videos are present in NTFS partition, as a result whenever i search for music in dash it results nothing. So how do i tell dash to look for content in specific folder rather than looking only in home folder.
I've seen lots of battery life forums, and most of them show great battery life (over 12 hours) with lots of screen time. I'm not even in an LTE area, but I get very good signal. My screen brightness is at about 30% and I have two e-mail accounts (Exchange push and Gmail sync).
This may be a stupid question but i would like to see what everyone has to say. Right now i'm rooted and unlocked and still on odexed stock rom. My battery life is wonderful, way better than my last moto q. Now if i flash deodexed rom i know the initial batt life won't be good b/c of writing caches but will my normal batt life return?
