    my battery is absolutely horrible. I know there are battery issues but here are the stats my phone showed today... and I want to know if I can do anything to fix it....

    "13 hours 16min since last unplugged...

    34% cell standby
    31% phone idle
    15% android system
    8% wifi
    5% display
    3% camera
    2% calendar
    2% android.process.acore (with a picture of a phone)"

    I barely wrote/read any text messages, and I made 1 phone call which lasted about 3 minutes, and I don't turn the phone on often to check any of the messages or anything...

    Reading the stats on the phone, i'm showing battery life: 5.41 hours talk time, 146 hours (6 days) standby time. obviously I think 6 days would never ever happen but I am sick of the phone needing to be charged every 12 hours.

    Can anybody help me?

    Sometimes it comes to my mind, if some phones are defective that they would use up more battery than it should?

    The battery usage stats are a bit misleading as they really mean nothing at all. None of this percentages pertain to the question of why your battery is draining. It is probably an app that is constantly syncing and not letting your phone sleep.

    There are a few battery threads in the Tips and Tricks forum that contain some pretty good info, and I suggest you start there. After that, maybe you can provide a list of apps you have installed to see if there are any problematic ones. You can download Systempanel or Spare Parts just to monitor whats running as a service as well.

    woop, i'll read up on some tips and tricks and figure out if there is anything I can do. I have advanced task killer but that's it for system monitoring

    howarmat, showing those stats, my point is I basically didn't use the phone at all, it just sat idle with barely any use, and I only get 13 hours out of battery life. that is normal?? I was in full reception areas the whole time so it's not like I was searching for signal at all.

    13 hours on stock battery is more or less on the normal side for some people. Use wifi when you can to save battery. If you arent using the phone much i would say should get more though really. Depending on how much and often your syncs are set up for
