No luck on search. What's the difference in Awake Time and Up Time?
up time: total time your phone has been on without being powered off
awake time: total time of phone use.
apps that don't let your phone sleep will cause your awake time to rise, which will have a negative impact on your battery.
like the text messaging bug when the hero first came out.
Thanks. Right now it's showing Up Time as 47:45 and Awake Times as
8:45 (18%). Is that good? I uninstalled taskiller a week ago, have the htc battery widget installed, and use the bluetooth widget to turn off bluetooth when not in use. TC
18% is decent, I hovered anywhere between 13% and 18% when I used to look at it.
It all depends on your usage, really. Along with how long your phone has been up w/o being powered off.
But yeah, I would say yours seems normal IMO.
I really appreciate your help. TC
It definitely depends on your usage. Mine got to 14% tonight after I was browsing and downloading wallpapers for like a half hour. Guarantee tomorrow morning when I take it off of the charger it will be at 9-11%.
Do you have Spare Parts app? It will show you any potential apps that keep the phone away, and it will also give you other battery information about your phone.
I don't think awake time is a good indicator of battery usage -- at least it's not in my case.
My awake time used to hang in the 10-14% range. About 3 or 4 weeks ago, I installed Good Technologies Exchange Cliient and ever since then, my awake time has been 100%. If there's been any change in battery life, it's been too small to notice.
In a typical day, I still use 65 to 75% of the battery charge between 7:30 am and 5:30 am when I put it on the charger for 2 hours. That's the same performance I was getting back when the awake time was in the low teens.
I have one showing for 6 minutes call coremobility.app.vnotes? Any one know what that is?
People get nervous with this information... (Awake/Uptime) and many over react... begin to use Task Killers, etc., which is no necessary. (See: Task Killer Thread)
I have had 30%+ awake time with no noticeable difference in battery performance than with 12%... But some apps will use loads of battery, like ANY of the IM apps. Basically anything that Polls Data Info. I also had my phone (intentionally) going for over 500 hours of uptime to see any issues and experienced none... that run had about 30%+ awake time and I was averaging 13+ hours of Battery life, heavy WEB use, moderate texting, audio listening and games.
So... Moral is... unless there is some negative performance issues... Awake/Uptime are great to look at, but not worry about.
If I am correct, that is the Visual Voicemail. This is definitely essential if you use that service, and it completley normal to be at the top.
Yes I do use the visual voice mail allot! Just wanted to make sure it wasn't something leaking through that I don't need.
