Support Should 80% of my battery power go towards the display?

    I have a black background, I keep the display settings at the lowest brightness settings, and I keep the screen off when I'm not using it, but my phone is dying after 8-10 hours if I don't use it very much and 4-5 hours if I use it regularly. Every time it indicates that it needs to be recharged, 65-80% of the power is going to the display. I...don't see how that can be.

    I'm using a Samsung Vibrant that I bought on July 30th.

    The JG4 firmware changed my power usage, but before the firmware update my display always used up 80% of the power, if not more.

    10 hrs is a bit short though. Are you keeping wifi connection on all the time? Also, have you tried using a task killer to kill non essential tasks?
