Anyone else getting horrible battery life with Gingerbread 595?

    I came from the stock build of 2.2, and I'm getting about half of the battery life now. I have it set up the same way I did before (Nighttime Saver), but it just kills the battery. I did notice that the phone idle and standby are using much more of the battery than they were before (40% of the overall battery usage in 23 hours).

    Does anyone have any ideas to increase battery life with the 595 build?

    Seems about the same to me but I have the extended battery. I run ULV too.

    I have the extended battery, and it barely got me through a day with moderate usage. I was able to go 2 days easily with FroYo

    I have excellent battery life on GB, just like I did on Froyo. I am running the .595 deoxed leak stock rom and I am still at 60 - 70% each night when I plug my X up. I do have vzw extended battery.

    I have extended and I'm doing ok as well. Lots of widgets? Post your home screens to see what's running.

    I'm a heavy user, especially with Google voice as my main texting app (uses a lot of 3g), and I can get well over a day's use on the extended battery

    I get pretty good battery life on .595. Not as good as some others get but decent. You have to realize battery life is contingent on what you're doing with your phone. How many, if any, games you play, apps you have running, how often you browse the net, whether you're overclocked, under volted, etc.

    You can of course come here and ask for advise on how to save battery life but at the end of the day it all depends on what you do with your phone and the only one that can make tweaks to your phone is you. Try various methods of saving battery life and see what works the best for you given your usage.

    I'm no Android genius but I like to throw my 2 cents at ya from time to time.......:D

    Things are better for me. Cleared battery stats and set the DX/2 overclocker to ULV and turn down the CPU all the way when the screen is off.

    Same here. Also you need to wipe your battery stats when you flash a new ROM. And even a stock ROM as well.

    Try this app from the market. I love it and its super easy to reset your bat stats with it (must be rooted, but heck, this is the "all things root" section)

    Running 595 themed with Stealth. I run JuiceDefender Ultimate (which helps incredibly) watch about 1 tv show on Netfilx a day, stream my music over Google Music now ( yayyyy) and maybe play 20 min of gaming a day.

    With all of that I get about 30-38 hours of battery life a charge on stock battery. As the person said above, it is all about how you use your phone.

    I have google voice as my texting option and tweetdeck as my social media option. While at home texts come into my computer's google voice extension in chrome about 5-20 sec before they reach my phone, so i usually keep my phone inactive for texts while home (which helps). I also do the same with tweetdeck extension for chrome.

    A few days ago I was home sick, and using the practices above over a long weekend, I got 49 hours battery life. Granted, I used my phone only for a few calls, texts that snuck by, and just to turn it on and flip through the screens. Can't compare that to the 'bolt though..... Some people get 20% battery drops per hour with the phone on a desk.

    Why am I so obsessed with the best battery life? I have a charger everywhere I go (car, home and work), so even if my battery died, I could charge it. Is it just because I want to be able to say "my battery lasted x number of hours"?

    I think most people are obsessed with battery life because every damn cell phone that comes out claims to have this great battery life and every one of them die in like 4 hours(talk time).

    I'm waiting for them to invent a cell battery that does what it claims. Which is what? something like 9 hours talk time and 24 hours in standby? Yeah, O'k.

    obviously it was fairly light usage over these two days...but i was still at 40% when i tool this screen shot...


    its more a problem with phone design than battery capability...there are batteries out there...but companies are always looking to make the thinnest phones possible...for instance...if Moto had not gone with the "camera bulge" and just gone straight back from there, yes the phone would be thicker...but they probably could have put a battery twice the size of a stock X battery in there...
