    Battery life is poor. I'm very disappointed with my Infuse 4G. I'm taking it back today. Going to another phone.

    Yea, I'm actually a bit dissapointed with the battery life. I've read countless reviews stating that the Infuse delivers good battery life, however I'm not experiencing it. I'm thinking maybe since all the other smartphones have crappy battery life, that in general, the standard for battery life on smartphones has been lowered. My bro has the Atrix, and he too is extremely dissapointed with the battery.

    What phone are you coming from? Ive had iphone, palm pre, hero, now evo. So I'm used to bad battery life. I do wish there was a standard test app for battery life. Like quadrant for processors.

    In my experience if u can get 15 hours of lite use then you are doing good.

    I'm sure an extended battery will be out soon. Since the phone is so thin adding a few mm's to it won't be a huge deal for the people that can't charge during the day.

    Before the infuse, I had an iphone 3G S and then the iphone 4. Honestly, I forgot how the battery life was on my 3G S, but I would definitly say that thus far my iphone 4's battery life exceeds the infuses.

    That being said, I think the smartphone manufacturers should start focusing on developing better batteries instead of making the phones more powerful.

    I agree. I came from an iPhone 4 and I remember the battery life being bettering on the iPhone. Maybe I was expecting too much after reading reviews, but they all talked about the good battery life. I guess my estimation of light/heavy use is not the same as the websites doing reviews.

    Miserable, unacceptable. it SUCKS! After charging the darn thang all nite it starts showing messages about 'low battery' by about 2pm - no heavy use of the phone or the web. That is plain old UNACCEPTABLE.

    Samsung screwed up badly and Infuse is not a phone I'd recommend. For a smart-phone that's pretty dumb.

    While researching Infuse before buying it I read somewhere that the battery had a stand-by time of 2-3 days and enough brawn/balls to last all day.

    I'd like kick that jack-ass who wrote that review - must be someone who either works for AT&T or Samsung.

    Battery life is not that good here either. I have tried to extend it by cutting "BOTH" map/gps's (At&T and Google's) also kicking the wifi off to only when I want it on. Google sync is always running and several At&T apps which you cannot disable or uninstall.

    I have no other phone to compare to since this is my first cell phone.

    I would like to hear from people that have other android phones to compare it to. I dont have an infuse yet. I'm still using my evo. But with the evo I learned very quickly to keep wifi, 4g,gps off unless I'm using them. I think with these things off you should be able to make it for the while day. I always keep my screen as bright as it can get. I won't look at a dark screen all day like some of my smart phone friends.

    I'm sure an extended battery will be out soon.

    I can from an iphone 4, and this phone is horrible. In the past 5hrs while I've been at work and the phone has been in my locker, I've dropped about 35-40% battery life, while sleeping. I don't know if its a crappy battery or if its some sort of power/memory leak. I am seriously considering returning the phone, only problem I'd that with att, there really isn't anything else good to go to. So im not sure whats going to happen.

    Had anyone contacted Samsung? I wonder if they're aware and admitting android issue and whether or not it can be fixed through a rom flash. Its a beautiful phone, but I am seriously dissatisfied.

    I lol'd at this thread it's either Samsung or all android phones, but going all the way back to the Moment I owned to the Evo to the Captivate the battery has always died faster than my iPhones. However, the battery life is not hopeless if you avoid wifi, 4g, gps, live wallpapers, high brightness, web browsing, playing games and watching videos.
  14. iPhone 4 owner here, still waiting on a droid phone to replace it with. Hate apple but iPhone is best phone I have used to date. Got up today my iPhone was at 97%, took off on my motorcycle at around 11ish used it all day to text buddies to ride with, make calls, gps while searching back roads to see the best routes etc. It's now 11:29pm and i have used it to update Facebook, read forums and surf the web. Still at 59%

    Whoever says the iPhone battery sucks I lol at. Was looking into infuse but like the atrix so far I've been let down. Booooooo

    I really hope this is a minor flaw

    How many of you experiencing poor battery life have some sort of lockscreen widget? I turned off widgetlocker, and my battery has been at 17% for the past hour and a half. Hasn't dropped 1%

    Not only does my battery run down ridiculously fast, but...

    (all setting tweaked to preserve battery and obsessively turning off active apps via task manager - no widgets, screen on lowest setting, wifi and data off when not absolutely necessary, location services/GPS always off, all syncing off, etc.),

    ...it takes roughly 3.5 hours to charge back up from a wall outlet while being turned off the whole time???!!!!!! WTF???!!!

    I cycled the battery at least 4 times and no sign of improvement. I'm pretty sure I'm not the only one. Has anybody seen any extended batteries, because I really want to like this phone, but I will go back to the tiny iphone 4 screen before my 30 days if this isn't remedied by then. :mad::(:thinking:

    I have the same problem too...Its taking a lot of time to get to 100% even with wall charger....car charging is useless, forget about it...When unplugged from wall, the charge is dropping fast even with the screen off..I observed that it is dropping fast from 100% to 30 % and it drops slower from 30% to 10%...There is some pattern that I am unable to find out...or am I having a defective battery because I heard some really good reviews about the battery..
  18. Uh, time to rehash some common info. Android has the weakest battery life of all popular phone OSes. That means BlackBerry, Apple, and Nokia all have better battery life. It's the pitfall of an open system which makes optimization harder. The reviews online only compare the Infuse to other Android phones, and especially against HTC which is known for having the weakest battery life, the battery life is considered much better.

    Well, I might not be getting the best battery life, but turning off the lockscreen Widgets has made a big difference. I still currently have a call blocker, cpu/battery monitor and juicedefender running in the background and have been pretty much all day since I unplugged the phone around noon. And I still have 83% battery life left. The phone hasn't been used heavily today, but yesterday, in a few hours, I lost over half the battery while in sleep mode. So at least for me, I found a major drain, which was widgetlocker.

    Its not perfect, but im happy. It is a great phone and I would have been disappointed to have to give it up because of a weak battery.

    what is this "widgetlocker" and how do I find it? I have disabled all widgets except for a battery percentage widget which doesn't seem to take up too much battery... any help would be appreciated!
  21. strodda

    well, im not too happy again. my battery today seems to be draining a little too fast.

    i unplugged it around 10am, and right now its at 78%. and all i did was a 20min run of angry birds. one thing i noticed, whenever you close out a program by hitting the home, button, the app stays open in the backgorund. if you go to the task manager, all the apps you had opened, are still running. when i tapped on angry birds, the game opened right up like i had paused it.

    i also read about a flaw in facebook causing a battery drain and the inability to turn off notifications. although this thread was 5mo old, but it was surrounding 2.2, which is what the infuse is running.

    im going to uninstall facebook and see if that makes a difference.

    I have been using my Inspire 4g for the past two months and have been frustrated with battery life as well. Found some really good tips, so would like to share.

    This app will plot the battery use (give it a day to gather data)

    Juice Plotter (FREE)

    This Widget allows you to kill apps with one click

    Android Booster

    This app will kill automatically tasks behind the scene, upon waking

    Automatic task killer

    Note: if you are an HTC user, stop syncing with the HTC Hub that was draining my battery the most.

    I fixed my sleep mode battery drain. A big thanks to the app systempanel and the dev for his help. Within the program I was able to see what was using the cpu the most, and with his help I found out one of my issues was an app constantly linked to the accelerometer.

    Just so happens I had installed screenshot it, which is activated by shaking the phone. I uninstalled it and the system process completely stopped. So I apologize to widgetlocker, it was never a problem. I misdiagnosed.

    But I suggest if you are having a big drain, install systempanel and let it follow your system to see were the usage is going.

    I found the problem even when charging the phone takes too long,
    The real problem was 4g always on, this suck battery so darn fast.
    So to charge the phone you need to turn off the 4g but of course you wont received any email and so, unless you are on wifi, heres how to do it easy just press and hold power button then deactivate "data network mode" and I even tried watching.movies on my memory card with the 4g off made hug, not tiny bit, but huge difference. Now we need to look for an App that will turn off 4g and only use 3g connection, as deactivating data network mode turn off data entirely including e edge. I'm going to call samsung 1800 samsung

    Doesn't juicedefender turn off the radio when the phone is in sleep mode?
