    Default Internet draining battery




    I'm not exactly sure what this is about because I seldom use the Internet Explorer app but for some reason its using a lot of my battery(phone was heating up randomly earlier as well) so I'm wondering if anyone can tell me what was causing this.

    Yes. Use Google Chrome....It eats less battery. I am using Google Chrome in my Note 3.

    Contrary to the post above, the Internet app does not eat more battery than Google Chrome, from my experience. You may have an issue with your setup or a site that it was stuck on. It's possible you were on a site that was refreshing the page every few seconds.

    Have you rebooted the phone or done a battery pull?

    Is this a one-time issue with your battery, or does it happen often?

    How long have you had the phone and since when have you had the problem?

    BTW, it's not Internet Explorer; that's a WIndows browser. It's just called "Internet".

    One time thing. It only happened today honestly but I was wondering if I had done something to do with some setting I may have triggered accidentally. After my battery has charged completely I'll reboot.

    Hah yeah. I know it's not IE but calling it just "Internet" was sort of plain

    Probably the site it was stuck on that was causing the issue.

    I'm experiencing the same issue! The thing is that I continually force close the stock Internet app and it comes back to life and immediately begins consuming my battery. I've tried everything, cleared the data, turned off plugins and java, but it is a zombie that comes back to life. Without rooting, what should I do???

    Rebooting worked for me. Have you tried closing all the tabs in the browser and then restarting?

    I solved the issue, here is what helped me out. Turns out at it's a sync problem with your google account. Disable browser sync under your Google account in settings and the problem is solved!
