    So i've just updated my Inspire to Android 2.3.3 this past weekend, and everything works fanstastic.

    Although there is something weird that i have noticed.
    The Battery Use menu (the menu that shows how many hours your current charge has lasted you and what apps/processes use up the battery the most) is a bit off in showing what apps are draining my battery the most.
    The top 3 things that used to drain my battery were usually the Display, Android OS and WiFi.
    that list seems incomplete now, showing only 4-5 things that drain my battery, even though i am sure i used more than those apps. And most noticable my Dialer is #2 in my battery drain, taking up more that 20%.
    i've tried restarting, and even going into my Watchdog task manager app and killing the phone app. both of which are of no avail.

    anyone have any idea what might be going on and what i can do to fix this?
    sorry for the long read :p

    Well the dialer logs your calls also. So anytime you answer or make a call its added up onto the dialer column of battery consumption.
    My apps usually only use about 2%, and thats over a long time os usage.
    Gingerbread manages battery much better then Froyo. Maybe its doing a heck of a job... hehe

    that's the thing.. i think my dialer is logging too much (if thats possible?)

    i'll use today as an example:
    Battery Use Screen

    11h 58m 20s on battery
    68% Display
    21% Dialer :/
    7% Android System
    4% Internet

    i'm not sure why dialer is even taking up that much battery.

    btw my battery life is also doing much better post GB update. and it doesn't seem to be affect performance but it just bugs me quite a bit..
