Hi,
one query,
normally the battery counter resets back to zero after a restart or shut down, rite? (the one in the battery option inside settings which shows ..days..hours..mts..sec on battery)
mine is not resetting. it just stays the same even after shut down or restart.
could it be a reason for my strange battery behaviour after the ICS update?
thank you.

Unhappy Should I buy Samsung galaxy S2?

I am evaulating Samsung galaxy S2 for my sister. But it seems it has bugs? Should I buy it as a gift for my older sister now? Or, what other brand recommended?

I have problems with the battery as well.
I upgraded to ICS a while ago and all was working well until Monday. First it started acting up constantly trying to start voice control and I could not even switch that off.
Then the battery drained fast and would not charge at all. I finally could charge it and then over night it went from 100% to 0% in idle state and would not let me charge it again. When I put it on the charger the phone tries to restart but since the battery is 0% it turns itself off again. Then it tries to restart... etc.

I am not happy about that. My phone is only 6 months old. I had Samsung phones for the last 10 years and never had any problems. So I really hope there is a way to fix that problem. I cannot even backup my data or contacts and reset to factory settings...

Any help is appreciated. Thanks!

Try charging the phone while its off to 100%. Then try turning it on and do a factory reset. Press Power+Home+Vol Up to go into a menu that can allow you to do that.

Also try using another battery.

And if nothing works, bring it to the samsung service center.

Hopefully you manage to back up all your stuff before doing all this. If not, you probably have to try going into the phone to do that first.

Default Email service

I had the same battery problem after upgrade to new ICS version.

after checking the BetterBatteryStats I notice the Mail service is taking most of the enery of the battery.

in order to fix it , you can try the following:

1. enter main Mail application and deleteall the accounts completely
2. shut down the phone and power it on
3. configure the email account again (I recommend to use 15-min instead of Push and if not needed disable "contact sync" when not needed)

after doing this I didn't experiance battery problem anymore.


in addtion , application llike "what's up", "viber" and "skype" sometimes can also effect battery consumption,
if that happend try to uninstall then and then install again.

hope this will help you...
please keep all the friends here updated if it's help

Default Battery and display time out

After upgrading to 4.0.3 the display settings are switched inadvertently and frequently from 15 seconds to 10 minutes. One trigger for this change happens when you are charging the battery. Only solution I have so far is to go back into settings and change the screen display time from 10 minutes to 15 seconds, however there are other triggers that I have not fully verified yet because it seems like an intermittent problem.

This explains why the battery life is shortened. Is there a patch for this.

my galaxy note was having a battery life of 8-10 hours with ICS. The stock battery application was displaying ExchangeServices as the culprit since i had them in push mode. However i tried to remove the exchange account and follow CPU Spy BetterBatteryStats approach.(ie try to get the phone to go to deep sleep mode which is not happening otherwise)..... The phone was still not going to deep sleep. so i investigated and tried to get l2_hsic(rebooting phone after it has been removed from charging) and fuel_alerted(stop the power saving mode) out of mywakelogs.
The phone started showing an amazing battery life. I have today added exchange services account back in push mode and still have a battery of 65% after 11 hours of usage now (ie with exchange services synch in imm push mode). I think its a bug .. now what i need to do is just reboot the phone after i have removed from charger. (this is after i have followed CPU Spy... BetterBatteryStats approach to get my phone go to deep sleep mode... )

If this has been covered I would appreciate someone pointing me in the right direction.
Since I updated to ICS Ive had no major problem but as mentioned in a few of the threads the smilies are horendous. Is there a way to replace the current green ones with the old style ones. I have downloaded a few from Google Play but they dont seem to be much better. All I want to do is find the file with the smilies in and swap it for the old one.
Anyone help?
Thanks

Cool issue resolved for me..try this out

Folks:

I had exactly the same problems that several of you are describing...terrible battery after my automatic upgrade to ics 4 on my note. After several attempts at solving this, I read in a website somewhere that a factory reset should set this right..and it did.

So I'd strongly recommend a factory reset after the upgrade. I did not lose any data since my contacts, etc were backed up on exchange. I did lose my phone history, saved passwords, network settings, apps, etc, all of which are easier to reset on a phone with battery: I assure you! :-)

May the force of factory reset be with you.

Default 3 months or more since ICS and different problems that cant find anywhere

hi guys this is the first time i ever used a forum i always tend to find the same problems through other people and answers, or i just never give up to find a way i can fix it myself.

since upgrading to ICS through my network provider ive only encountered one problem and that is that my phone will always randomly be found switched off. or frozen on a black screen which holding the power button resets, either way thats how i know if tis one or both. if the battery comes up or just resets.

i have tried everything from the 3 ways to reset the phone searched all over google, i dont know how to use odin to revert back to gingerbread, but i dont want to, i love ics and the features on it put GB to shit.

the best thing i came up with was to have an app running always so the phone cant turn off (beside on rare occasion that it freezes on the app)

i leave an app called relax and sleep running al night while on charge so that way my phone wont die and then lose oppurtinity in receiving calls especially work related, and not knowing

if there is a solution to help me i wil be forever grateful!!


I also dont want to take it back to the store because the lady jsut said that they pretty much just reset it themselves, and that it wil probaly take like 3-4 times before they even consider replacing the phone, and jsut recently i cracked the slightly but nothing internally changed from what it was before to now.

either way i love the android and i dont want to lose it for like 3-4 months before being considered a replacement.

THANK you!!

When you mentioned the reset option, did you factory reset?

Does it do the same if there is nothing in there? And what apps have you put in the phone? If its misbehaving at stock (after factory reset), I say its a serious enough problem that the phone should be replaced. But if you already have apps, they will always blame those.

Angry Samsung Galaxy SII after after Android upgrade battery drains and has problems with connectivity (Ho

Hello.
I have a huge problem with my Samsung Galaxy S II since I upgraded to the Android 4.03. My battery is very quickly drained (lasts max. 6 hours with almost no use) and I have problems with connectivity, specially HiFi. My husband has the same phone model, but he has no problems. I have no idea what to do, but I feel I do not have a phone any more. What can I do? Please donít tell me to check the Apps, because I already did and actually have fewer then I had before when the phone could last up to 2 days. Thanks

I installed 4.03 on my AT&T SS G2 and had the drain issue. I took the advice on another thread and deleted all of my email accounts. Rebooted and then added them back. The issue has completely resolved. This also happened a few years ago on my iPhone and the same fix worked.

Hi guys,

The problem is with Samsungs Mail Client connecting to active sync accounts.
I had two exchange accounts linked in accounts.

I had the issue when upgrading to 4.0.3 from 2.3.4 and it it got so bad I would only get 6 hours from full charge to nothing.

This drove me nuts. Anyways a friend of mine helped me completely reload a new rom onto the phone from fresh, instead of using the upgrade route.

I used the UK/Ireland ROM (had the least amount of rubbish in it for my needs)
First I cleared the phones cache then re ROMed the phone with 4.0.3 then cleaned the cache again.

In essence I turned it back into a brand new phone again.
After this I noticed a massive improvement in battery life. But I was skepticle it would stay this way as in the past I tried deleting my accounts only a few weeks later for the problem to return.
I used 4.0.3 for a good 4 weeks with 0 issues. No slow leak of battery performace over that time period.

Now, here is the exciting news, the other day 4.0.4 became availible for the UK/Ireland ROM. So I updated, crossing my fingers the problem would come back as it did with the 2.3.4->4.0.3 upgrade .. Im happy to say its even better!

Today I can report with everyday usage I am seeing
1d 4h 55m 16s @ 40% battery with 2 x exchange active sync accounts and normal usage.

As an added bonus, Samsung have fixed all of the little bugs in the mail client. One of my exchange servers (work) is on an older version of exchange. Every time I would open an email and press 'Load more details' it would just hang there trying to download. This is now fixed in 4.0.4.
General 'smoothness' of scrolling through mail with combined view has been greatly improved.
Push email works flawlessly
A lot more options when an appointment comes in on how you can deal with it.
Contacts are easier to navigate

In summary, 4.0.4 feels and acts like 2.3.4 did when I got my phone. I have my battery back! And just in time for my trip to europe where im going to NEED it!

Anyways, I hope this helps some of the frustration out there.

Cheers

Default Factory reset restores battery life

I had the same problem on my Galaxy II Epic Touch: my battery life geatly decreased and some apps did not work after the automatic update. I called my phone company and they did a reset on the phone. It worked perfectly; the only problem is that you have to reload apps, reconfigure email, etc. But now the phone works perfectly again.

Hello and welcome to Android Forums Sjotta31!

To downgrade from Android 4.0.3 to Gingerbread you will need to flash the stock Samsung firmware for your CSC code via Odin. See post #1, here, for details of how to locate your CSC code and download and flash firmware via Odin.

Mine was draining at a rate of about 8% an hour, even when I wasn't using it. It's now down to around 2%. The biggest drain I found was the Google+ account. I believe the constant syncing prevents the phone entering deep sleep mode. Go in to setting and accounts and see what account syncs you have set up and are using. Signing out of, and disabling Google+ made a big difference to me. Google+ is a part of ICS and I think that it is this that is causing the battery drain issues.

Hi,

So it seems many of us have had the same problem. Since the upgrade to 4.0.3 my battery just drains. After 2 visits to Samsung and 2 new batteries I have isolated the problem to Exchange Activesync. If I disable my exchange account the phone runs normally. In fact if I sync contacts only with exchange it's fine. If I sync email and contacts it drains. Same problem for 4.0.3 and 4.0.4. I work for HP and our internal IT is telling us NOT to upgrade to 4.0.3.

So what is the consensus on the solution? Do I need to roll back to before 4.0.3? What's the best way to do that? Or is there a better solution than this?

Thanks,

Scott.

Reading this thread one wonders; how come so many solutions for one problem!
I had the same experience and after reading this thread I checked settings/battery and found out that one application, Deja, that I was hardly using depleting 30% of the battery power. I guess it was trying to sync in the background or something. Of course the battery drainage was more than 30% but that was probably because it was preventing the OS from going into sleep.
I clicked on Deja in my battery report then clicked the Force Stop and voila I gained 8 to 9 times standby time, charging is faster and the set is cooler.
The wierd thing, I don't see any change in Deja's functionality.

Default I thought is was Android 4.0.3_4.0.4 Draining my Battery - it was a tool within my antivirus app

Hi All,

I have a Galaxy S2 GT-i9100 International version and recently upgraded to Android 4.0.4. Around this time my Phone started draining the battery such that I barely lasted a working day. Before I could get 2 days out of the battery using Juice Defender Ultimate to meter it.

Going into Phone Settings/Battery and clicking on the graph that came up I could see that my phone was awake all the time and never entering sleep mode.

I thought it was the Samsung upgrade. When I found I couldn't go back I rooted my phone and tried a couple of ROMS until I found a good stock ROM from

S3Mods ICS ROM for Galaxy S2 i9100! [For Noobs] | Galaxy S2 Root

I had to search for a new ROM as when I rooted my phone I could not get a preview on Camera when taking Photos - so the original ROOT was not good, but the one above has returned good funtionality across the board and i still have ROOT access.

Yes Im a noob on rooting my phone, but not in using or resolving faults in Information Technology.

The new ROM initially fixed my Phone, but after all my Apps were back on; it was doing it again.

I then found an app called "BetterBatteryStatus" which has an option called "Alarms" (needs root access to work) which showed that my AVG "Antivirus & Security Pro" app was keeping the phone awake. I had set App Locker within the applications tool box to password lock some applications and this was causing the problem.

Answer: If you are using AVG the Applocker seems to have a bug where it is always checking stuff and keeps the phone awake (my view). Not using the app locker (clearing all the password protected apps) will fix it and give your battery life back.
