I have wifi enabled, gps enabled (no apps requiring it however), and things that my Iphone also had available, and it would depend drop 0.5 to 1% every hour.
Is this normal? I really hate to see my battery waste away like this. I calculated that when playing modern combat 4 , as intensive as it is, I would maybe get an hour to an hour 30 minutes off a 100% charge.
Once again the question - is this normal?
P. S. Loving android. Much better phone than apple garbage.
You need to download the following two apps NQ Android Booster and DS Battery Saver. I know the stock ROM requires more battery then my AOKP rom but you should still be able to pull another 10 hours if you were to use the two apps I have mentioned on the top. Play around with the settings and see what battery times you get. One thing that drains the most battery is Facebook widget on the home screens try to not use widget that require constant sync and you will see great results. If not pm me ill tell you which ROM to use for better results.
