    Guys, I own a Sony Xperia S. I've attached pictures here, which are pretty self explanatory. Please help! :-(

    28% after 13 hours is about 16 hours, or 2 work days on a charge. As the screen says, reduce your screen brightness and reduce the timeout and you'll get more. But 2 days on a charge isn't terrible.

    Actually, it was on standby for around 7 hours. That's the problem. The screen stats show its been on for 3-4 hours, that's the actual time I've used the phone. Cpu has been awake for 6-7 hours for some unknown reason. :-/ ans brightness is down to 25% always.

    Thank you for the replies! I installed wakelock detector and noticed backup is sucking my battery. What do I do? I have it disabled, yet it drains my battery :-S
    EDIT : Okay I just noticed back up was enabled. I have no idea how it was enabled. I disabled it now, I'll see how it goes and let you guys now! Thanks again :)

    And about the media server, I don't have any corrupted image files.. Why would it still run in the background? :|

    Try disabling apps you don't use... Go to settings and make sure nothing is set to synch (if you want to do it, do it manually).

    Install a task killer and set it to terminate apps you don't use at regular intervals automatically.

    Finally let the battery run out and then. charge it all the way to 100% without turning it on. Download a battery recalibrating app from play store.
