    I renewed my Telus plan and got the LG-Shine model LGC710h.

    After fully charging the battery LGIP-400N, I noted it's strength diminshed quite rapidly.

    Yesterday after a full charge of battery, it died after 8 hours with minimal use and primarily in standy-by mode. :mad:

    I find this very unusual after being a cell phone user since 1994 with my very first phone a Motorola DPC 550 requiring an additional battery to be carried around with me.

    Now, 17 years later with the huge technological advance I find it inconceivable that I have virtually no stand by time instead of the some 3 days on my previous LG Shine flip phone.

    Could I have a disfunctional battery that requires replacement or is there a better battery available.:thinking:

    Hoping to hear from the moderators.

    Welcome to the Android Forums!

    Modern smartphones are basically handheld computers anymore. Lots of processes normally run on them and the screens also tend to use a lot of battery. Getting a day or two out of a phone is not uncommon for smartphone users.

    To squeeze some additional life out of the phone, try deleting any unused widgets from your multiple home screens. Widgets are active at all times and consume power even when not displayed or being actively used. Live wallpapers also tend to consume lots of battery. If your phone uses a live wallpaper you might consider changing to a static wallpaper. Auto brightness features on some phone also use additional power. Manually dimming the screen can help save additional battery.

    I will execute the suggestions you have outlined. For one I will be very happy with 2 day standby time. I do not believe I have any widgets activated and have static wallpaper. However 'auto brightness' is turned on, so on with the dimmer switch.

    Any suggestion as to a better battery?

    Thank you
