Extended Battery/Screen Time issues

    I've had the Gorilla Gadgets 4500 mAH extended battery for about 6 months now. It's worked very well for me up until the last month. I hardly get through the day and the battery drains so quickly even while on standby. I've recently checked the battery usage and it usually says that 70-80% of my battery is being used up by my screen. Just yesterday, it said that I used 2 hours of screen time, which consumed 70% of my battery. Any reason for this happening? I should be able to get much more screen time with my phone, and it shouldn't drain as much while on standby. Not sure why it started happening all of a sudden.

    Hello OSU.

    Well, most often when a sudden change in resource drain is seen, it'll match up with some change the user has made, either in usage or in addition of an app/widget or in configuration of the system or one of the apps/widgets, given that the battery stats are correct as displayed (clear those in the Application Manager and reboot to test that ;)).

    Having said that, some 3rd party extended batteries do seem to dry up in performance rather quickly. One year is supposed to be the average life of a battery for these smart phones, extended or stock. 6 Months seems a bit on the low quality side, unless, as mentioned, there's a configuration or app/widget or usage reason.

    Also, have you changed location? If so and it's farther from a tower/signal source, your device may be draining resources in an effort to keep polling for a strong signal.

    OP - can you post some screenshots of your battery usage, including cell signal strength?

    the screen at full brightness should draw 325-350 mA in my experience.
    so running the screen for 2 hours should draw up to 700 mAh, 1400 mAh over 4 hours and so on. plug this in to your calculations and you can see how big your phone thinks the battery is.
