    So it appears the camera app and media server like to use a lot of my battery. Last night I took a few pictures. This morning when I woke up my phone used 30% battery while I was sleeping. I looked to see what used the most battery and it was the camera and media sever. It also appears my phone was waking itself up many times through the night, but I had sync turned off (Only wifi and mobile were on).

    Any ideas why this is happening? Also, I've not found anything where you can tell the phone about when you sleep. On my Droid X I could say 11pm-6pm was sleepy time.

    Finally, how come we can't see screen on, display time, battery used by display on the DNA. I thought in screen captures from others I had seen this.

    the sleep from 11 to 6 is automatic now (according to HTC)

    And JB doesn't show you screen on time anymore.

    Earlymon just turned me onto a really comprehensive battery monitor app called, GSam Battery Monitor: http://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.gsamlabs.bbm
    If should show/tell you everything you need

    Trying that app. It seems to use WAY more ram though than my Batter Widget Reborn.

    Wow, great app Nightangel! It even shows the percentage of screen time on bright/medium/dim, very cool!

    Jelly bean does show screen on time. Why did HTC remove it?

    I figured that was a JB thing. Makes no sense for HTC to remove that...

    Just checked on my JB tablet... I'll be darned.

    What gives HTC?

    Over how much run time. If you start say netflix from a full charge, you'll get great screen on-tim.

    If you hunt and peck all day, the cumulative may not be as much. Regardless, that's an impressive number for that screen imho!

    Curious since I'm here, Netflix isn't really "HD", what's it running at? And if it's HD, is this a different blend of Netflix that might be much better on other phones that use hdmi out?
