sean76....I could not have said this better myself. I don't want to screw with my "developer settings"...I'm not a developer. I am a techie, but i dont want to spend all day trying to find a way to stop my phone from dying within 3 hours of being unplugged. I have went through so many threads here and on xda, i've killed everything I possibly can. I have a flippin black background, my mobile data is off, no widgets running, basically nothing running at all....and yet, i can unplug it at 100% and 2 hours later its half dead. I've owned an iphone, so it's not like i have unrealistic expectations of an awesome smartphone that will last for days without a charge. I just want to get through an entire day without a dead phone or being chained to the wall charger. This is with no email syncing, no browsing, screen off, all tasks/apps closed, excellent coverage. The phone also gets very VERY warm. I've tried disabling wifi, mobile data, but there is no difference in the rate of battery depletion. Please no flames....just looking to vent really as I have tried so many different things at this point I just want it to be done....I am either going to smash it and use my insurance to get something else or just be a seriously unhappy samsung user. also like sean said....really does suck. when the phone isn't dead, it really is awesome.
