Default Samsung Galaxy Apollo battery problem

hi everybody,
I recently bought a samsung galaxy i5801 smartphone and on the first day I encountered a strange problem.

First, I charged the battery completely. Then by the end of the day, the battery charge fell upto 60% and then suddenly when i checked back, it showed me a battery charge of 15% only. so i put it for charging and guess what, the battery charged popped to 60% instantly.

This has happened for 2-3 times now. Hence, if anyone is facing the same problem, please post the problem and the possible solution so that we can try to overcome this glitch.

Yes! I am having the EXACT same problem. Restarting the phone also puts the charge to 60%. Its super irritating. Because if you let it continue, then the phone switches off after it reaches 0. Is this a problem with the firmware or with the battery?

Can someone help us out please?

Hello everyone,

Anyone facing issue with Battery with Samsung 3 / I5801
Here is the solution, i got from Samsung Helpline....

1. Let your phone drain out whole of battery (try using it till it switch off automatically)
2. Put it on charging for 8-9 hours, be it in OFF mode only. (you can do this in night)
3. Remove the charger after it, and Power it ON...

Let me know your feedbacks...


Thanks
Sumit

@Sumitqa: I tried that and it did not work. I gave my phone for service and they replied saying that there is a problem with the battery and are in the process of replacing it. So maybe some builds have issues and you can maybe get it replaced if the calibration dosent solve the issue.

hey everybody,

I use quick settings app to disable mobile data connection and this has led to significant increase in the battery life.

Mobile data connection:
Enabled: Battery life is around 16 hrs.
Disabled: Battery life is around 26-27 hrs.

Can the Samsung Galaxy i5801 users post their battery life?

@mohankarthik: I was also thinking of visiting samsung service station but before i do so, can you please post your battery life for the faulty battery?

@XXX313030: I had about 12 - 15 hours with disabling every app and using just for about 20 - 30 min voice calls, and making sure my mobile was in sleep mode for most of the time. If I ended up using a high profile app like adobe reader, wifi, video player and so on, then it drastically reduced. At full usage (I was continously listening to music, and reading a pdf document), i got 5 hours.

Another reason of the battery draining out so soon is because the installed apps keep trying to connect to the net, either via Wifi, 3G or Edge. Try disabling these softwares and dont forget to disable your Wifi, 3G, Edge & Bluetooth when not required.

Hey everybody
In my previous post, I had stated that I got battery life of around 26-27 hrs.
Since then i have rooted my phone and i am using auto killer memory optimizer and trust me I have started getting a battery life of 52 hrs.

I know it would be hard to grasp but i have tested it 2 times and it does give around 52 hrs. It is baffling that first it started with 16-17 hrs, then went upto 26-27 hrs and now upto 52 hrs.

I guess the battery life depends on the number of apps running and efficiently killing such apps.

Hope it stays the same way.

The sudden drops are probably because of a crap battery driver in the firmware, it doesn't take measurements often enough. Pretty much nothing to do here but beg samsung for an update.

Hey friends

I think we all should send emails and contact Samsung and let them know about the battery problem and the GPS problem we all are facing so that they release a firmware upgrade for Galaxy 3 GT-I5801 as soon as possible and rectify the problem.That's the only solution at the moment.I am definitely sending a mail to Samsung and hope others also do the same.

Cry My New Samsung i5801 Apollo - battery drains faster - very sad!

I recently bought a Samsung i5801 Apollo on 7th October 2010 (352337041056318). The performance and speed is great. When browsing the pages it runs like anything amazing. The camera output is not pleasing. OK let me come to the main point. Right from the first day, i felt like the battery is not withstanding as it should be. I thought, as i am a curious new-buyer and searching every applications incessantly the battery is getting drained. At last yesterday, i downloaded from 'android market' the 'battery monitor' and 'battery booster' to check my battery performance. I switched off everything working inside, like, wi-fi, bluetooth, GPS, vibration etc.( only doubt is, i recently downloaded the 'Advanced Task killer' from android market and it should have been running inside) Night, at about 11 pm i went to sleep, and i consciously checked my battery level too and found it was 60%. Alas! in the morning at 6 'o' clock when i wake up, i found my mobile was switched off automatically. I do not know why! I put it in the charger and found shockingly it was only Zero percent !!! I was totally disappointed and getting fear as to how can i rely upon this mobile at least from morning to evening. Every time i can not take the charger along with me for a short half day 12 hours trip too. Just kindly help me what i should do and should not.

Mine is working in gprs without wi-fi support. Only thing is Battery drains so fastly and disappointing. To switch off gps just swipe your finger from Samsung to heart-shaped switch. Then, a metal grey colour screen will open. You can see wi-fi, bluetooth, gps, and vibration icons in 4 numbers. You can switch on-off there. Its easy to check and activate/deactivate every time.

1) Auto killer memory optimizer is just like any other task killer but its more advanced.

you can find the app at:

AutoKiller Memory Optimizer - Android app on AppBrain

2) auto killer mem optimizer automatically kills the apps which have higher oom value. Just check out their official site. they have explained it perfectly.

Three main things to stop battery draining

1 - Advanced Task Killer (or another similar app, downloadable from Market for free)

2 - turn off 3G, 2G is perfectly fine, and wont be searching consistently for signals

3 - turn off GPS and Wireless

My phone now lasts at least 2 days, with high use

None of these worked for me on Samsung Galaxy 3 and I was pretty frustrated with Android and regretted my decision. Ultimately found following solution that works, but my question is why Android has hidden this solution so deep and in difficult to reach area.

Open dialer.
Dial *#*#4636#*#* to open “Testing” screen.
Tap on Phone Information.
Press the Menu key or button.
Tap on More.
Tap on Disable data connection to disconnect and make inactive any data connection immediately.
Tap on Disable data on boot to disable data connection on next boot up.

It's something that will be fixed in 2.2 ... But for now, just edit your mobile access point name, and rename it to something non-existent... like: apn.yourprovider.com to apn.yourprovider.comdoesnotexist or something.. :-)

Or, use the "*#*#4636#*#*" feature.cheers

Default Trying it out

Well I tried the *#*#4936#*#* code and the 'E' icon for EDGE connection disappeared. I hope this solves the call drop problem. Will let you all know if it really works.

Guyz i dont know how much this solution would help evry1 but it helped me a lot...i almost got more den 20hrs on an average a day on a full charge....

1) Download LauncherPro from Android Market.

2) After full Installation Push the Home button & select LauncherPro as the default action
-Home Screens= 3

3) Install Advanced Task Killer & in its settings select
-Auto Start
-Show Notification
-Ignore List (Advanced Task Killer,Voice Dialler & all those Apps u dont want task killer to auto kill)
-Auto Kill Level=Safe
-Auto Kill Frequency=Every Half Hour* (this is the main key to conserving battery)
-Security level=High.

4) Also Keep a widget of the task killer on the Home screen to manually kill unwanted apps

5)keep WiFi,Bluetooth,GPS & Google Sync off whenver nt in use.

6)brightness = low

7) Settings > Wireless and Network settings > Mobile Networks > Network Mode > GSM only. (UMTS/HSDPA is 3G).


Note:The samsung's default TWlauncher is so boring slow & battery consuming that it is 1 of the main reasons of battery consumption
secondly Android tasks dont wish to die on their own so mercy killing them is d best option.So Advanced Task Killer is the best assassin for them (do not forget to select the ignore list in its settings or else ATK will go on killing them)

Hope this will help most of them...

Default Increased battery life

As i said earlier, i tired the *#*#4636#*#* code to disable data connection.
And yes, it was a boon. NO MORE CALL DROPS. Battery life did increase. Actually without using wifi or gps or gprs my phone worked for more than 2 days with 2 major calls(1/2 hr each) and other minor calls.

Default Funny Battery Indicator

Another funny thing that i noticed is that as stated by many people the indicator drops to 15% or 10% from 50% or so. But i tried this: As soon as the indicator drops or tells to connect to power(which is usually due to a call when indicator is at 50% or 40%), just connect for say 10 seconds and the indicator again shoots up to original count. I don't know why this happens but seems to be a problem with the way the indicator measures battery life.

Having the same problem on my Galaxy 3. The battery suddenly drops from 60 to 15% and then dies. Have missed morning wake ups because of that. GPS also not working properly. Otherwise a sexy little phone. Shame really... Tried the battery calibration routine (drain the battery completely and then charge overnight to 100%). Not much help. Hope the 2.2 update is happening at some point. All though they are taking their sweet time. If the update does not happen within January then I thin I should think about demanding my money back. Can't trust a device like that.

Default Galaxy Apollo Battery issues

I am a middle-aged woman completely new to Smart Phones and Android. I am using the Galaxy Apollo on the Telus network in British Columbia Canada. I have had my service provider block data to prevent any costly accidents, since I use my phone primarily as a phone and thought I could use Wi-Fi when I needed more. I wanted to try to improve battery usage by following the suggestions here - to disable Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and change the network settings to GSM only. Now I find that my phone has the no service sign for the short periods of time I have had it on since changing the settings. Would anyone know why that might be?

1. Let your phone drain out whole of battery (try using it till it switch off automatically)
2. Put it on charging for 8-9 hours, be it in OFF mode only. (you can do this in night)
3. Remove the charger after it, and Power it ON...

Let me know your feedbacks...


Thanks

The above procedure didnot solve my problem. so I took it to samsung service center ans strangely, they are less aware of the firmware upgrades and they even don't know that samsung had a new Froyo update I5801DDJP6.
They were still in Eclair 2.1, so I gave the info of the new firmware upgrade and they were still not able to solve the issue and as my mobile was under warranty they opted for a board change to check if the problem was resolved.
Froyo 2.2 I5801DDJP6
thanks,
Subrahmanyam
