    Default My battery life has been below expectations

    Hey guys, I got my G2 in January, and haven't really had any complaints about it, except for one. Seems like everyone was praising the battery life, and while it has been good, it hasn't been as good as I had hoped. Sometimes it will be solid, but recently it just has been draining constantly. If I look at Twitter for about 10 minutes and have full bars, with brightness at 25% or below, and it goes down 2-4 percent. My phone also heats up quite often, which I don't seem to recall it doing early on in my phone's life.

    I just don't know why it is so bad, any help would be appreciated.

    Hi, did you change your charger recently? I've heard samsung device are sensitive and requires a original charger. I'm using a old charger with low amps and my battery goes low even while charging and being used.

    In the screenshot it says "app usage 75%." That's very unusual.

    I'd say my battery life is a little below my expectations, but that's just because many people say the phone's battery life is "amazing" while I'd just call it solid.

    Some apps destroy battery. Try to unistall as many app as possible and turn as many things as possible off. 4g usage kills the fastest along with video. Also make sure you have brightness on auto.

    If 75% of his battery use is from apps, I really doubt his charger is the problem.
