Everything has been great until the last few days.
Have been getting crazy battery usage by seemingly random services.
I havn't even opened maps. Here is a sample of my last couple of days.
Anyone else having problems with Maps and battery usage? All location services turned off, haven't even opened maps, and it is at the top of my baytery usage, saying GPS is constantly running in background when all location setting are off. Uninstalled and reinstalled to no avail. I've been getting fantastic battery life but still not sure why this is happening. Suggestions?
I have a Samsung Galaxy S2 that I upgraded to 4.4 a couple of days ago. Since upgrading, my battery longevity has dropped a crazy amount. Just this morning, it took about four hours to go from full charge all the way down to about 25%, and that's without much use.
I just got my first Android phone and its a Galaxy Nexus running Jelly Bean. The first two days I was getting around 4-5 hours of battery life and then started reading up on this forum and did a bunch of suggested changes like turning off NFC, location services etc. Also, downloaded Juice Defender and now the battery life is around 7 hours.
OK so my battery was amazing for the first two weeks. Starting this week my GPS is running constantly and maps is draining my battery. I will clear all the apps and turn off location services and the GPS still kicks back on and location Services gets re-enabled. I cleared the app data for maps and I've done a few resets nothing helps.
Hi. Ive had my galaxy for 3 months and always been great, never had a problem. Only the last 2 days the battery isnt holding hardly at all. I usually charge each evening but I charged 100% yesterday evening at 9pm and by midday today its completly dead. In that time ive send a few texts and took a couple of pics.
For the past couple of days, I've been noticing my GPS icon randomly popping up throughout the day. I know Google pings my location on occasion so it normally doesn't bother. But my battery has been really bad this week and today I checked the battery usage and it's showing Maps has used over 40%. This is weird because I've only used Maps once this week, and that was for all of 10 minutes.
so i normally get 2 days on my RAZR MAXX HD battery, or if i charge everynight i have 50-60% battery when i plug in....the last two days i have used my whole battery by 10pm and haven't changed my habits.
i am hoping to post this screenshot and you guys tell me what happened.
