    My battery life has been bad since jb. Like it was when I first got my sg3. I'm below 20% in the evenings when I was averaging in the 30's.

    The minute GN showed up, I shut it all down. Serves no purpose for me and it's an obvious battery killer.

    Google Now is not a battery killer. I have it and this is my battery and this is my new battery.

    Think there is a problem with it. I went to App Manager, All, uninstalled updates and think I disabled it after that. I'm still getting over 24 hours with each battery charge and I USE my phone,

    Battery life is phenomenal. Running JB. I'm on my phone constantly. Facebook YouTube Pandora. Twitter. Battery life is better after I disabled AT&T's garbage apps.

    Last week, how to geek ran a short piece on pixels in amoled screens and battery life.

    Bottom line: black on amoled screens don't illuminate pixels and therefore don't use any battery juice. White or any other color does illuminate pixels and, hence, uses up battery power.

    I tried it. Unfortunately, it works. Switching from my gorgeous and grey monochrome wallpaper back to a black background has returned my battery to its previously long-lived self. No, I didn't use a meter, so no screenshots, but try it yourself and see what happens.

    I say unfortunately because I love visually arresting home screens. At least now, I can make an informed choice.

    Strangely enough though, the screen still lights up a little bit when it is on a black screen. But so little so, that I can only notice it if I am in a very dark room. I wonder why this is.

    Hey gang. My Android Systems has been equal or more to my screen time 20% or greater. I think that is eating my battery. Can anyone explain or help me?

    My Nexus 7s android system remains below 10% constantly.

    I mostly use my phones calendar, ever note, a to do app, Gmail, touchdown, that's about it during the day...

    Thank you.

    If you had a Falcons logo as an avatar, I would help you. Lol. J/k. Try using "Better Battery Stats". Its the best app I have found for figuring out my battery problems.

    can you post the screen on time, just hour didn't mean anything.

    Does anyone know know what the different colors of the bar graph mobile network signal represent? I figure that green means that the signal is full, but there's a beige and olive color. Does the beige and olive indicate a lower strength? I'm working on battery plummeting issues. Even when I turn off wifi and data, the battery drains rapidly, which is corrected by a soft reset. I'm trying to determine if this is a 4GLTE issue.

    I have a new battery sent by AT&T, and for 2 out of 3 days that I've been using it, the battery drain issue hasn't occurred like the original one that came with the phone. I'm still trying to pin down the problem.

    I've had a number of issues with battery periodically including:

    - Charging to 100% overnight only to unplug and have the battery life drop to 60% within five minutes on standby. I drove out and the battery tanked out to 2% that same day.

    - Today, used Pandora from 100% and it dropped to 40% in 35 minutes.

    I have JuiceDefender, MobileCare to kill apps by the hour, running on WiFi when at home...and sometimes still get drain or phone feels hot. I have AT&T with 4.1.1. Right now it is off and charging. I will take my microSD card out and see how it goes because I've also had Media sucking up much battery use rates too.

    I would try a factory reset and see what that does for you.
    I'm running JD and mobile care on AT&T with 4.1 and get about 24-26 hours with moderate-heavy use.

    Did the factory reset and LOST ALL MY PICS AND MUSIC (not bad since Google Plus instant upload has all my pics, in addition to Facebook, Photobucket, etc.; music was on my laptop originally.... so yeah, no loss LOL).

    Got Juice Defender and Mobile Care running... ran on battery with fair to heavy use for 14 hours. Phone has never felt cooler to the touch too. Thanks.

    Just for future reference, you can back your phone up to Kies and do the factory reset and then restore your phone with Kies and it will bring back pics, texts, even your call log.
