Hi, I am a new andorid user and I would appreciate anyones help regarding battery life. I do fully understand that these smartphones are going to be more power hungry than other mobiles but I do feel that i am getting significantly less life than others post on here. I have usually 12 -16 hours which is considerably less than others suggesting thay can get up to 36 hours. Of course I have been looking around this forum for any solutions and have started doing my own test. Last night went to bed on a full charge, unplugged the phone, turned off wifi, 3g, gps, sync and brightness and then decided to put it in airplane mode anyway. After just 6 hours, this morning phone has just 85% showing - this cant be right right? I follwed the suggestion from tuatha Quote: Originally Posted by tuatha Also, dial *#*#4636#*#* and select battery history. Under 'other usage' check the figure for 'running'. A normal figure should be less than 30% (give or take 5%) If it's abnormally high, you have a program preventing your phone from sleeping. ! and the fiugure for running is 98% so I guess this is the cullprit...what do I now do to find out what is causing phone to not sleep? appologies if I shouldnt have made this a new thread, as Im know there are lots of threads about battery life - please let me know if I should have done this dirfferently to get the support I need. all help appreciated.
