I am so frustrated right now, i don't even know what to type. So im going to just ramble on and hope someone can offer a solution! So i have received my 3500 from hong kong (the $10 one off ebay) and did a full charge with phone off last night. Today i turned it on and turned on gps, turned on trillian, turned on mp3 player, and read newsrob for about 40min. Screen is on 50%. Not a single phone call, and never opened the browser! Im down to 71%! The phone isnt even unplugged for 3 friggin hours!! uptime 2:57, awake time: 2:05 (it didnt sleep because i had music playing from mp3 player, not streaming though) I also have SetCPU with screen-off profile to 455/245 .. shouldnt this by itself offer insane battery benefit? Why is it not working as it logically should? Okay granted, for half of the time i was underground in a subway with no signal, and i purposely did not turn on airplane mode just to test this battery out. I also left data ON (as apposed to turning it off with Juicedefender when i shut the screen). But the entire reason i rooted, and keep testing all these apps and batteries is because i don't want to turn things on and off!! I want to just pick up my phone and go without having to worry about my settings at all. So i bought this battery because i saw many people (not just 1 or 2) bragging about multiple day uptime, and insane awake time when using a 3500. I thought if they can do 3 or 4 days uptime, and like 24hrs awake, i can surely do 18hrs uptime, 8-10hrs awake with heavy heavy use! My expectation was less than half of what other people were reporting, i thought that was realistic. So now i have vented. Do i have a faulty device? Faulty battery? Am i just a moron?? Will this battery shape up after a few charge cycles maybe? Im sorry about this stupid post, i know it sounds ridiculous "omgz i left everything on and my batteryz is died" ... but i really am at the point of wanting to strap a car battery on my back just so i can forget about settings altogether. Hopefully someone can relate, or offer an answer. And hopefully i dont get flamed too bad lol SkyRaider 3.2 Sense, with Kings #5, stock radio PS, no i dont want to switch to a dumb phone, or an iphone, or any other such solution. I love my DI to death.
