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.
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.
The HTC One X suffered a humiliation in the video playback part of our test. The Galaxy S III put the superior power efficiency of its screen to great use here and took a minute over 10 hours to deplete 90% of its battery.
As we all anxiously await the November 13th arrival of the Nexus 4, I’m sure a lot of you are concerned how the battery life will fare. Well, early results aren’t very good. Based on recent unbiased and fairly scientific test results from AnandTech, the battery life on one of the most anticipated devices this fall will leave something to be desired.
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).
I was wondering which rom you guys could recommend for better than stock battery life? Seems like a lot of the roms are tweaked for smoothness and speed not battery life. Currently on d3rpICS but the battery life isn't so great...barely getting 8 hours with 1 hour on screen time. If anyone could point me in the right direction I'd appreciate it. Thanks!
Hello everyone. I have a computer on which I have just installed ubuntu 13.04. I went from having a battery life of over 6 hours on Windows 7 to a maximum of 2.5 on ubuntu. I have used powertop as well as tlp to diagnose the problem. Powertop says that I have consistently over 1000 cpu wakeups per second, and my battery discharge is 37 W.
This is actually a copy of a (long) post reply I did in another thread a little while ago but heck, there are lots of posts and questions about battery life and I have 10 tips or things I do that maybe help to some so here it is...
( This was the original question:
What's a good figure for battery life on the GS3? The best I've got is about 31 hours using on demand and bfq.
