20% drain in an hour? Really?
Hi everyone. I love my Nexus, but I am just wondering - is the battery life on this phone pretty bad?
Sleep is fine. I don't see any drain. But the minute I turn it on, the battery drain is enormous. I've done the reading, I've lowered brightness to 20%, disabled location services, disabled tap sounds, and even flashed Franco's kernel.
Currently as of this writing, my battery usage is at 17%, at 58 minutes. This includes me opening up a few webpages, going through the phone's settings, taking 4 screenshots and uploading them. That is all - I didn't open up any other programs. At this rate, I will go through the phone in under 4 hours, and this is considered low-moderate usage, right?
I am wondering if anyone thinks this is bad battery drain, or if its pretty normal. I would really like to be able to use my phone without having to constantly watch and monitor the battery drain, because this is ridiculous. I know people are telling to shut off all of the sync, the location services - but if I do, then whats the point of having an android in the first place if you cant use these amazing services?
Remember, this is with Franco's kernel, which is supposed to give better battery life.
Will there be updates that improve battery life? Noticeably? At least 30+ minutes of extra screen time?
