Root Possible cause of sub par battery life on Liberty 1.5 related to the Dialer?

    I, like many others, had always noticed shorter battery life after switching to Liberty. Until now, I had no explanation for this. However, in my last few charge cycles, I have noticed that the Dialer has shown up consistantly as a large battery user. To follow this up, I checked on my Battery History in Spare Parts. My Partial Wake stats looked good, but I did notice that, under Sensors, the Dialer was shown to have had a total sensor usage of 14hrs (the exact amount of time that the phone has been off of the charger).

    Could this be responsible for draining the battery? Anyone else experience similar sensor behavior?

    the dialer is not eating my battery for me. in apex and the rest of the blurry roms, they had uid 1015 eat my battery after i placed a call (listed under sensor usage).

    hmmm, interesting, as my dialer shows 8 hrs of usage but it has been off of the charger for at least 16

    It seems to be mostly a sensor issue. I used Watchdog Lite to force close the dialer and battery has improved quite a bit. Maybe it was just "stuck" somehow?

    possibly; which dialer are you using?

    I believe that it's just the stock Cytown Phone that comes with the ROM.

    they did make some tweaks to wifi scanning time and a few other minor changes

    there is no "monitor" installed

    Could this tweak help my wifi problems? Specifically, I have a hard time accessing the Android Market when I'm on wifi. On 3G, Im fine.

    You are missing something. :D It DOES tweak settings that improve battery life.

    Correct, the only monitoring is when people post their battery screen shots.

    Probably not. I think the tweak changed the wifi scan interval.
