    Hey all new to the forum. Had a quick question about battery usage.

    My up time is significantly higher than my awake time (over 4x). I have read that this can be a huge issue with battery usage. Are there any ways to significantly reduce this?

    Thanks

    Up time is the time since last reboot. Awake time should be significantly lower...thats a GOOD thing!

    up time is how long the thing has been ON, it will always be higher, awake time is when your USING it.

    if your up time is 4x your awake time that means your using it about 15 minutes of every hour... not too bad sir, not too bad

    No, it's since you last booted the phone up.

    Ex...I'm plugged up right now, so according to you it would be zero.

    This morning my uptime and awake time were exactly the same ... I restarted and it was fine after that.

    Right now my awake time is half of the up time. I'm thinking 50% isn't all that good b/c I was hardly on it today. Any thoughts?

    Something probably running in the background. Get a task killer and see what apps are running. I've been noticing the Sprint bloatware likes to open itself up and run in the background several times a day!

    Why do you need a task killer when you can manage and kill apps in the software provided with the phone?

    Personal choice, both accomplish the same thing. If you know how to do it, then why ask the question to begin with?

    hmmmm

    my stats
    71 uptime
    52 awake time.

    its at least off for ~7hrs when i sleep. so thats 21hours when the display should be off which doesnt add up. and obviously i dont use it straight when im awake.

    Pull up

    Settings>About Phone>Battery>Battery Use

    And see what's keeping it awake.

    but thats only useful for the last time i charged my phone.
    but here it is nonetheless
    [​IMG]


    im not gonna worry about it yet as i get decent battery life so far (10-12hrs; 50-100 texts, receiving ~75-125 emails, send about 5-10, casual browsing. though mostly on wifi. i had a vacation day today so ill know tomorrow how it will last on a work day on 3g).

    seems like wifi keeps the device awake when i charge it overnight

    I would definitely start by shutting off the wifi off when not in use at night, the camera too. I use my camera a lot and I've never seen it even at 1%. Are you leaving it open?

    I didn't ask about task killers, I was asking if anyone could shed some light on the situation with personal experience. Maybe someone had the same issue that got resolved. That's all.

    Calm down lol.

    i occasionally close tasks with system panel (to which i occasionally monitor my cpu activity). i prefer not to close anything and let android do its thing.

    im used to having my pre with bluetooth (only active when its in my car) and wifi (since its actually better than 3g when it comes to battery life) on all the time
