    Howdy folks.

    I have been reading the forums since i got my phone, and it has been invaluable. Thanks for all the knowledgeable contributors.

    One thing that was recommended by several people was to download "spare parts", so I did. That being said, I have no idea what the results mean! For example, if I look under battery history, and other usage, it reads "running (100%) and screen time (100%) I have no idea what that means!

    Also people state you can tell which applications are sucking the life of your battery, and I have no idea how to do that.

    Sorry if this is a stupid question, but I am not a techie type!

    Well i had the same question and i think i figured it out. Running is the amount of time the phone is awake. screen time is the amount of time the screen is turned on. and if you go to partial wake usage it shows which apps are using the most battery
