I had been using SmartActions to turn off Background Sync at night. I had Wifi turned on 24/7, but found out from Motorola that turning off background sync will not stop emails if Wifi is turned on.
Suggestion: Turn off Background Sync, Wifi, disable Cellular data, and Silent Ringtone to get a good night's sleep.
I was using smart actions to turn off background data and cell data when it was asleep and not charging. Worked perfectly on GB. Had to stop doing it on ics though because I noticed my data was not reactivating every time. Sure enough that wonderful new ics feature called Data limit would magically turn itself on and set a limit well under my unlimited usage. What a freaking pain in my a** ics has become.

turned off 4g and it helped alot stupid ics cant stop me from having good battery life. i havent turned the phone off yet at all not even in airplane or sleep mode oh and i turned off wifi (gotta love unlimited data) and my brightness is down and i am not using any smart suggestions.
ive noticed if i am not getting a good lock on GPS (cloudy, indoors, underground) my weather app will drain more battery. im doing nothing different, i just happen to be in a spot out of GPS satellites range. but my battery drain went from 80mA to 210mA. if a weather app doesn't get a good lock it will retry at a set interval until its gets a lock. some of those settings are not even visible to the end user.
there is if your do the code phone through the phone dialer for lte only. i would imaging it would be the same battery life only because its not looking for any other signal. as it would for 3g only as well its not looking for any other signal
Ok. Lately my battery hasn't been consistent. I'm a semi heavy user, internet, phone calls, streaming music, text. This weekend I was getting over 30 hours on a charge now it's anywhere between 10 - 12. Everything is stock. No real change as far as reception goes ( in Chicago area so strong 4G) was thinking about rooting. Would that help battery life? Besides what Braden thinks "porn" is not causing the issue!
