This question has been asked a million times, and believe me I have read and read the replies on various websites and blogs. I am new to Android and most 'smart phones' but I am not computer illiterate. I have attempted to remedy the problem myself, but I must not be doing something correct. My battery situation hasn't improved too much. Here is my situation! I am using the LG KH5200. LINK I have not found much concerning this phone. That may be because the phone is rather new (one or two months old since release). I have found info about the LG Eve (it's considered a similar model, and maybe even a brother or sister phone). I don't want to sound too picky, but please try to read through my setup before replying with advice like 'try a task manager.' I am grateful for all advice, but please try to read through-- I understand it's a mess and not easy to read through. If you can read through it, I believe you can provide much better advice! I live and work in Korea. I am using it in Korea on the KT network. My phone setup: Spoiler Is messaging a potential battery killer? I read 1.5 had a kind of memory or battery leak on messaging. My usual day: I charge my phone while I sleep. I wake up and unplug it at 6:30. I shower and do my morning stuff. I only send a message or two, or call my significant other for a minute or two. I relax until about 10:30. Then I leave home and I use my headphones and my default music player. I listen to music and do a little gmail, facebook for about 5 minutes. I keep listening to music until about 12. I may skim the market for apps, but nothing much. I may also send a few texts. I always end tasks when I am done using them, and advanced task cleaner kills all running apps (except music, alarm and messaging) when my screen times out (30 seconds). I use 0% brightness the whole morning. When I arrive at work (at 12), my battery is usually around 87% or less. Is it just me or is that obsessive battery use with only minimal phone use? My phone itself seems to get drained even if I don't listen to music. It will usually drop 10% or so even without listening to music. Spare Parts doesn't display any strange battery drain. There you go-- ask any questions you have, and provide any tips you may have. Thanks a lot for reading!
