Ive noticed my battery life depleting (more then usual) lately, and i had a look at the battery life on my phone, and it says the Android OS is using up 52% of my battery life. I checked out a buddys phone and his was only using 4% ... I hardly have any apps installed, and dont play alot of games on it.... any ideas as to what might be causing it???
nope nothing. I hardly use the phone during the day except for texting... i dont have any widgets running, hardly any services... It says Android OS ...... im not sure what it is..... battery is in the red after half a day....
well, that could be the reason why. someone who doesnt use the phone a lot, some of the smaller percentage things on one persons device will be higher on yours cause there is nothing else running. even though it might be using the same amount of battery, you don't use anything else, so the percentage could be higher.
I would check your settings on thewetherchannel widget. You may have your location set via GPS. (This uses lots of power). If you stay in one location for long amounts of time, I would see if you can choose your location by city name or zip-code.
You may have the same application polling at small increments like every minute. I would recommend every hour.
That is the only suspiceous item in your list that I can see.
