    Default GSAM Battery Monitor Question

    In Time Remaining, I assume Average is the likely time remaining based on my typical use. Talk Time is if I just talked, I guess. What is Last 15m??

    It's just an estimation, I wouldn't read much into it

    How do I do that? It says Last 1m now. Maybe it said 1m before. What does it mean?

    That app is a little weird. It doesn't have a clear explanation of that.

    There are three things under Time Remaining. Average, 1m (or 15m, it changes) and Talk Time. I'm asking what 1m/15m means. What does that mean?

    I've understood that to mean based on your last 15 minutes of use, this is the amount of time your battery has remaining. Sometimes the time will also vary, like Last 1M, 6M, 9M...but it just means based on your usage in the last whatever minutes that's posted, that's the amount of time your battery has remaining.

    I tent to pay more attention to the average time remaining.

    To take a screenshot hold down the power button and then press home.

    Trojanman is correct--the "last 15 minutes" estimates your remaining battery life based on your usage in the last 15 minutes. This may be important, because if your device has been on standby for a while, then the estimated remaining battery life based on the last few hours may be grossly overestimated if you started using the device more intensely in the last 15 minutes, and intend to continue doing so.
