Out of curiosity, would you find that unacceptable? (Honestly just wondering...)

Yes...I hate opened stuff! I know some people don't care, as for me, I'm nuts and would just rather have something sealed and never touched except for the person or machine that sealed it.

Here's my usage for the day:

11% left - Unplugged for 19 hours and 34 minutes
Voice calls = 40% (Time = 39 minutes)
Display 34% (3 hours 16 minutes)
Cell Standby 14% (Time on = 19 hours 35 minutes, time without a signal 35%)
Phone Idle 8% (16 hours 20 minutes)
Android System 2% (CPU usage = 17 minutes)

The only thing that bothers me is 40% of my battery use going to 40 minutes of talk time. Can that be right?

Sounds off. Usually it takes 3-4minutes to use 1% battery so worst case scenario 39 minutes should be 13%

I just got this phone 01/08/2011 and after an initial drain & full charge I'm lucky if I get a full WORK day out of this phone (mind you I use the term work lightly....because it's slow so I'm on my phone all day). I can't use wifi @ the office because they block it for email/chat. So I'm using my 3G signal. Everything else is shut off - including the screen, I turn it on, check my notifications then shut the screen back off..
I've only tried like 2 or so apps to manage battery but realize it's 6 of one-1/2 a dozen of another regarding the whole app running to manage battery but using more @ the same time.

I guess my question is - how the **** do some of you get 2 + days out of it? I listen to music on the way to and from the office (lucky if I can get home w/ 5% or so). From 6 am I'm out the door and home only 12 hours later running in the door to plug mine in

I currently have a droid x and samsung fascinate. I read the reviews on how the Droid X is ranked best battery life and how the SuperAmoLEd actually used more battery....

From my experience the Sammy kills the X is battery life. I always make it a full day of work and sometimes leave it overnight. When the phone sits overnight does'nt seem to kill battery very much. I am stuck on Galaxy S for now....just waiting for Froyo. Anyone want to buy a Droid X?

having had both as well...id give a slight advantage to the droid x in battery life...not much but noticable to me

but the battery on the fascinate is rock solid as well

Really? Guess it just depends on the user lol. I didn't even think it was close. Im texting all day and the droid x usually needs to charge by 430 or so ( off charger at 730 am). the fascinate usually can go till late that night. I sometimes don't charge it till the following morning. I think that the X with the screen on texting constantly kills the battery life. However....they are both far superior to my old incredible.

how long did you have the droid x for? it took me a good 2 weeks before the battery finally broke in and it was magic...before that it was absolutely miserable

my fascinate was good within 3 or 4 charging cycles though

That could be it. Only gave it 3 days maybe 4 days.....it was in the yellow by 230 or 3 pm sometimes. maybe didn't give it long enough. But either way the thing that really wins me over is the size of the Sammy. So light and thin.

That's ultimately what won me over, too, as a previous Droid X owner. I made big strides in battery life by always using night mode on my eReaders, turning off all the automatic syncing crap, rooting and uninstalling all the crap and bloat I could, and running AutoKiller (don't run Automatic Task Killer or other variants. AutoKiller for root users is the only one I've tested that doesn't create a noticeable drain on battery life, personally.) If you don't want to root, turning off the autosyncing stuff, using a non-live wallpaper, and using night mode while using eReaders helps a lot. I tried using night mode on DolphinHD browser, but it only works so-so. Decent for text only pages, but there's a slight conversion delay.

The darker you can make things on a SuperAMOLED phone the better. If you put an eReader on auto-scroll in night mode on both the Droid X and the Samsung Fascinate the battery life tables flip flop. Just the way the tech works.

Oh, and I installed an undervolted kernel as well. That probably helps, too.

Battery life and performance are probably my, and everyone else's main concerns. I made big strides to save on battery and usually get a full day on it. I also leave on at night without a charge.

I'm no expert, but I learn pretty fast. My tips on saving battery life for the Fascinate:

1. Your system. If you're rooted, use a undervolted kernel. It saves you big if your screen isn't always on.
2. Your screen. You need to turn the brightness down. Mine's almost all the way down and still looks more vibrant than my friend's Incredible. (If you don't mind putting it all the way down, put it down)
3. Your wallpaper. Don't use live ones. If you want a bright wallpaper that uses 80% of your battery, go for it. I use an almost black wallpaper that generally seems to save that backlit screen from working as hard.
4. Your apps. When you're not using them, don't run them. I use an app called Autokiller Memory Optimizer that, go figure...automatically kills them when it notices I'm not using them.
5. Your data connection. When you need to use the internet, use WiFi. When you don't, turn that WiFi off. It's better to use for data, but also consumes battery if left on.
Also, if you don't need emails syncing on time, I suggest you use an app called Juicedefender i (if you're rooted). I stopped using this because of the email thing, but it saved me battery by controlling when my 3G was on and off intelligently.
6. Don't always charge your phone. Let your phone run until it's almost dead, then charge it back up to 100%. Smartphones are like little laptops. If you have them plugged in constantly, you'll see a drop in battery life.

That's really all I can think of right now

Not shooting down your list to bad but auto killers are bigger battery killers unless you take the time to actually set them up properly, not saying you didn't just stating the fact. And constant charging of the batteries in this phone is not harmful. Actually letting these batteries fall all the way to empty is bad, I know I'll start a battle with someone on this one, so I'm going to say that is my opinion about battery.

But thanks for putting together a list its really a great thing for everyone giving each other a hand

So you talk on the phone all day and listen to music on the way to/from work? and want to know why battery only lasts 12 hours?

On your cell phone all day? do you have bad signal at "work"? GPS turned on?

I finally gave up and just carry a car/wall charger everywhere I go. Now I let my Fascinate run like it should live wallpaper, etc. with no worries.

I play on my phone all day long. Music, Web browsing. You tube. I text alot. Use the cam corder. BUT.. When i get in my vehicle i always plug the phone in. So i never have gone a full day without some kind of a charge. Its always been the way i use my phone.

So when i go to bed at night i am usually at 50 to 60 percent. Even then, I plug it in and screw around with it until i am tired. In the AM it is fully charged and ready for the day. I did order a 3000mAh battery off Ebay for $13.00. Why? I dont know.

AutoKiller specifically is the one anomaly, and seems to work great on the Fascinate when set to "Optimum." It won't aggressively close things out unless they're incessantly wasting CPU or you're running low on memory. It's pretty lax on phones like the Fascinate that have quite a bit of memory. That way it's not creating unnecessary demand on the CPU always closing out apps like many of the other auto task killers do.

Nice post. Im inclined to agree with just about everything you said. Wont split hairs on small differences either. I will say Auto Killer is a try and see app. I tried it and now Im off it.

Yeah AutoKiller is more of a memory manager than a task killer. It claims to save battery and many see this. I tried it for a month when I first got my SF, been off it since October though I dont miss it. UV kernel is way better for me and the way I use my SF.

Speaking of people who stole my avatar and turned me onto AutoKiller, even though I moved off said avatar and AutoKiller

I'm pretty much double what Optimum would be right now :P I think I'm set at 110, 120, 130 haha but I started at 70, 80, 90 and kept pushing until I found the perfect settings; for myself anyway.

i find that auto killer (or mini free manager which is a less feature rich but same thing app) is fine if you know what your doing with it....many people put it on extreme or ultimate and its counterproductive to battery life as its killing everything left and right...personally after much experimenting found that moderate or optimum works well for me on touchwiz based roms...its pointless in aosp though as so much is free at boot

Yea thats what I was trying to get at. That it can be ok if you take the time to set it up. There are just so many ppl that put apps on expecting that they are set up to make their phone better without tinkering with them.

Hmm - since this has AMOLED screen... would using a black background and smaller/darker icons significantly extend battery life? ("Display" is always the largest consumer of battery on mine) How about some kind of universal default setting to use black backgrounds with light text instead of light backgrounds with dark text on apps like email?

No, it is no longer a new phone, it's used - you used it. The price should be reduced accordingly and it should not be sold as "new". You could call it "like new" since it's probably not damaged in any way.

Absolutely true. I have an eReader app on mine that can make all the text white, and everything else black, even eliminating the status bar at top. I get an astounding amount of hours reading with that app. It literally sips battery. If more websites and browsers had more black and less white, it would affect any amoled based screen tremendously.

And I promise I'm not trying to be racist.

Mine says 16 hours in my Battery Left widget and it gets close to that, but sometimes when I take it off the charger early morning the drain is ridiculous. It will drop 10% in under an hour even if I don't do anything.

It charges up quickly too, which also doesn't feel right.

Well after having great battery life the last few months, I have to say after the recent update, my battery is TERRIBLE! Needless to say, I'm not a happy camper right now.

Make sure you dial the *22899

Also make sure it didn't inadvertently turn on any background or syncing stuff that you didn't want on. In addition, check backlight and power saving settings to make sure those are where you want them. And finally, I think that having the touch sensitive buttons on always with the screen, while minimal, will still have a slight affect on battery life, just as NoLED or something similar would.

Yup...I did a double check on everything! I finally just picked up the phone and called vzw, they're sending me out a replacement today with a new battery! Between the battery life and non working GPS, a replacement was needed. Hopefully the new one is spot on!

My dad just got his fascinate replaced too. He would drop the signal, drop calls, and occasionally not have enough signal to call out in places he thought he should. Eagle Pass, for example, is a good benchmark. It's not surprising for a phone to drop a call there occasionally, or even two thirds of the time, but my Fascinate has never dropped a call on Eagle Pass. I always make it a point to test it. My dad's dropped it every time. Since he had it replaced, however, he has strong signal now, even at home, and has also not dropped a single call when passing over Eagle Pass.

Hopefully your new one brings you improvements in all those areas as well.

I'm having a strange issue with battery life. I've had the phone a few months, and have always gotten through the entire day with a little data and text usage, and barely any phone usage.

For the past week or so, one day I'll get through 18 hours and have 50% left. The next day, with almost the same exact usage, I'll have a dead battery in 3 hours.

I run Advanced Task Killer on Safe with kill on screen blank. Other than that, I play about 15 minutes of word feud and send about 30 texts on average per day. That's it. Why would almost identical usage kill it in 3 hours one day, and the next I'll have a marathon day.

Driving me nuts. Please any ideas?

Get rid of ATK it makes battery worse promise. The other factor could be fluctuating signal. Hard to diagnosis though since so many variables are involved. Merely saying you more or less use it the same daily isnt really enough to go on

I'm thinking my bad battery life is attributable to there being a very weak signal at work, and maybe it's constantly looking for a signal. Is there a way to turn off 3g, or data, so when I want to check for texts or voice mail I can just switch it on? The only other way I can see is to turn off my phone during the day until I want to use it.

Yep, there are widgets that do that. I don't use them on my Fascinate, and I haven't had much luck getting them to work on my wife's Eris, but I know there are at least widgets on the market that claim to turn just 3G on and off. You can certainly do it via settings, but that's not as easy as using a widget. I haven't tested them all. There are several free ones you can test to see if they actually work or not.

Would that be the equivalent of turning on airplane mode, or that's different? I'm thinking airplane mode would sever all communication, while turning off 3g would still allow me to receive texts and calls, but just on a slower network?

You are correct, but now that I'm searching for it, I can't find the same setting on the Fascinate that I can find on my wife's Eris. When I turn off mobile data on my wife's Eris, calls and texts still work, but it uses absolutely NO 3G data. I can't seem to find this same setting on my Fascinate. I would try some of the widgets on the market and see what happens. My testing methodology would be to toggle the 3G off. Place a call, receive a call, send a text receive a text, then attempt to browse the web.

If everything works except the website browsing, then you've found the widget you need. Obviously a bit of a drawn out trial/error process, but in the market, you could scan for reviews that tout the widget as working on Galaxy S phones, and that would narrow it down a bit.

That's not good. There are lots of suggestions in this thread to drastically improve your battery life. If you'd tried them all and your battery still craps out in 4 hrs, then you need to get it replaced, likely still under warranty. I would have to try really really hard to kill my battery in 4 hrs. I know web browsing wouldn't do it, nor would 4 hrs of voice calls alone. Maybe NFS shift would kill it that fast.

Airplane mode turns off ALL data. I don't know if there is a way to turn off just 3G on SF.

I don't know if it's been posted here but here's an interesting post:

Fix for poor battery life on dj05/dl09 (rooted) - xda-developers

Quote:
1. Dial *22899 and let it do its thing(This initiates an OTA (over the air) installation of the latest PRL (Preferred Routing List) which determines the order in which your device searches for carrier signals.). This helped my battery drain while in standby. Now drains about 1% every 3 hours of standby.
2. Charge phone to 100% (phone on)
3. When the charge hits 100% power down the phone
4. A green battery will show on screen and show its not fully charged. Leave it on the charger until it shows 100% (phone will vibrate to let you know and state 100%, do not unplug phone)
5. Once it reaches 100% boot into recovery by holding both volume keys and power until the Samsung logo appears.
6. Choose "apply update.zip" (use the home key for selection)
7. You are now in Clockwork. Use the volume keys to navigate to "advanced" and the back softkey to select it.
8. In the advanced menu select "wipe battery stats" (there will be no conformation)
9. Back in the advanced menu select "wipe dalvik cache"
10. Now back into the main menu and select 'wipe cache"
11. Select "reboot phone" and wait for it to reboot (will take longer than normal)
12. Once fully loaded unplug the charger and run the phone until the 5% warning then plug back in
This other guy just did this:

Quote:
Totally drained battery, dialed the reset number, charged phone to 100% while off, unplugged and replugged until fully charged, wiped battery stats and caches, and I'm still draining. At 43% after 19 hours of lighter use.
Some reported better battery life after just calling that number.

Default Screen Timeout!

Hey all,

I just made one simple, underestimated change to my settings that has dramatically improved my battery life. I changed the Screen Timeout setting from 2min. to 30sec. Now my phone has been unplugged with moderate use for 12 hrs., and the battery looks like it's at 85%. When I check the battery status, the screen used up 34% of the battery life. Before I made the Screen Timeout change, the display used more like 60% of my battery life.

I recommend trying it out if your screen timeout setting is set really long.

I got my Fascinate back in December and I would say I've been averaging between 12 and 16 hours per day with moderate to heavy use. That, however, is when I'm NOT at work. In my cube at the office, my battery life plummets. This is obviously because of the weak 3g signal and because I can't use the wireless at work.

I bought a Samsung OEM charger on Amazon for less than $5, and just keep that at my desk. I charge at the office most days and don't have to plug in at night. I also stopped using the Battery Indicator app, because I was starting to become so obsessed with monitoring the battery percentage that I'm pretty sure I was using more battery tracking my battery stats than if I just forgot about it and charge when needed.

One last thing...I tend to think that the battery conditioning process, especially with the latest lithium ion batteries, is largely a figment of our imaginations. I know when I first unboxed my Fascinate, I used it for several hours straight while I was downloading apps, setting up sync, getting my screens just right, etc. After a few days or weeks, I settled in to my phone and wasn't messing with it as much. Presto. Instantly better battery life.

I just got my Samsung Facinate two days ago, and I've had to charge it both night. I just deleated wheather bug from it because people said that could drain the battery, but my phone is at 30% and its been off the charger for about 10 and a half hours. The only time its been off is when it died the first time. I believe i use it heavaly. Am I getting good battery life from it? i do not have a moving background

though i havent used that much, but usual 20-30 calls per day, data usage as well as on wifi still lefts some battery on second day, this is not on heavy side.
I use the method of complete drain out and fully charge with handset switched off which improves battery life, even on all my previous handsets and my friends as well.

I have had my Fascinate for a couple of weeks (my previous phone, an LG Voyager, took a dip in the Atlantic Ocean). There were some issues in the first few days, but since the 2.2.2 updated, it has been stable. I have a couple of occasions with "screen break up". What I do then is power it off, pull the battery for 5 seconds, and then power it back on and it seems to be fine.
I haven't had any call missed issues.
If I had better resources, I probably would have gone Droid 2 or Droid 2 Global. I had an upgrade coming through Verizon, I have limited resources right now, and the fascinate was free and the shipping was free too. So I am plugging along. And I will keep you guys updated!

I'm still rocking my Fascinate, and I got it pretty much on release date last September. It's been a great ride. There have been some things about it that drove me crazy, but 2.2 really helped make life better, especially using some of the developer ROMs you can get on XDA. I've had a LOT of fun tweaking and customizing this thing, and as a result I get great battery life and performance.

Even stock, 2.2 was a huge help to this phone. I wish you well with it, and hope you enjoy your Fascinate as much as I've enjoyed mine! The screen is gorgeous.

I'm sure people won't believe me but I am currently getting GREAT battery life from my stock Fascinate. All I did was to change my account sync schedules. I set Yahoo mail sync frequency to be every 30 minutes and my corporate exchange sync schedule to have a more limited peak time schedule and and make the off-peak time schedule 1-hour.

Before doing this I HAD to tether the phone during the day for a while or else it would be dead by early evening (7pm). Now when I go to bed 10 or 11pm the phone is still at 60-70% battery life.

To me this is a perfect compromise! I was SOOOO close to rooting and messing with my phone to attempt getting better battery life. I'm very, very glad that I did not root. Aside from the hit-or-miss GPS it's a great phone.
