    Default Battery use

    My phone was fully charged before I went to bed and when I woke up I noticed that Android System has drained my battery overnight again. Is this normal?
    Phone isn't rooted btw.

    Screenshot of battery use attached.

    20% over 8hours seems right to me bud.
    android system is at the top coz its a percentage and u werent usin anythin else so something has to be at top.
    i usualy charge overnight.. overcharging does nae harm :beer:

    EDIT youve obv had screen on for a wee bit too
    p.s, see wen u tap the bottom of that graph, it takes u to another screen incase u didnt know... maybe ur signal was dodgy durin the night n it will show that

    Not convinced, phone was idle and used 20% battery. My other Android phones and tablets don't use that much power on idle.

    Damn that seems pretty good to me! It only used up 20% over 8 hours? That's incredible in my book. I'm not sure how that is for the S3 but that would be considered great for my S2 Skyrocket on a 1,850 mah battery. What size battery does the S3 have?

    what did you leave running m8.. wifi/data? to me that seems average or good for a phone sat on standby.
    its not like it was switched off eh :thumbup:

    G1, Desire, Galaxy S, Desire HD, GS3 and a couple of Tablets. GS3 is going on eBay/ Gumtree next week as after using stock android on my N7, it's the way forward mate. N4 for me as the price is a no brainer and you get software updates first :-)

    I've got unlimited data data I'm never more then arms length away from a charger in the office, car or house so the fixed battery isn't an issue.

    The GS3 is the new LTE version with 2GB of RAM, should have a few quid left over when I buy the N4 on Tuesday as I hope to get about 375 for this, it's only 3 weeks old and mint
