Awful battery life after Jelly Bean update.
05-14-2013 08:41 AM
- I updated to Jelly Bean manually via Kies and my battery took a turn for the worst. I probably get 3-4 hours max out of it with normal use. I've only had the phone for a week. Is there a way to revert back to Ice Cream sandwich? Have any of you had this problem?12-16-2012 03:15 PMLike 2
As far as I'm concerned this was a half-baked JB update. More con than pro. Maybe this is because all of these issues have been fixed with 4.2 and Sammy is just behind the ball with giving us a proper JB update? I'm quite sure I've just about had it with this "official" JB update. Once I find some spare time I'll root this bad boy and flash a custom recovery where I *KNOW* it'll wipe everything properly and not just hiccup along because of corrupt files that got left behind.12-18-2012 03:04 AM
- I have seen quite a few threads regarding $H*TTY battery life after the update. I recall you relaying this same information to me as a friendly suggestion in another thread and I do appreciate the insight. How ever, I'm just getting through my 3rd factory data reset because of outrageous battery drain. At times it can be random and caused either by 1) the media scan or 2) google maps hogging up the percentage. With ICS, the highest percentage was always phone idle or screen (because either my phone sits or I'm using it for SMS/Gtalk/Facebook/Email). Also, when I do a reboot or a battery pull the phone always reverts back to the samsung keyboard as the default and not SwiftKey. WTF is that all about?

- Me too, you need to turn off all of Google's location reporting and the cause of the biggest drain is Samsung Push. I disabled it and now enjoy normal battery life. If you use the Samsung app it will enable it again but who needs that app anyhow. My wife still has ICS and after 1 day 12 hours she still had 73 percent battery after lite use. Tell people about Samsung Push as the battery life is really annoying everyone.01-03-2013 01:27 AM
- I too was experiencing very poor battery life after the JB update but my battery life was pretty poor w/ ICS too. I installed Juice Defender and immediately thereafter the battery life was still poor. Maybe 3-4 days after installing Juice Defender the battery life improved considerably and remains that way. I'm guessing maybe it takes a while for Juice Defender to adapt itself to your particular usage habits. While I still don't experience what I'd call exceptional battery life it is much better. I've never done a factory reset or removed my battery. I recommend installing Juice Defender and waiting for a few days to see if that helps you.01-03-2013 07:12 AM
- In settings -> Battery, it will show what is eating your battery. If it is the screen, that means the brightness is doing it, and you can easily lower brightness. If it is Media, then you should remove the MicroSD card and see if that solves the problem(corrupted file on the card can cause this).01-03-2013 10:12 AM
- I would also recommend you install the Advanced Mobile Care app: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...bit.mobilecare On some days when I'm not using the phone much I am getting over 2 days on a single charge since adding it along with Juice Defender.. .The ONLY two gripes I have with the JB update are the bug with the default keyboard and the slower responding home button. Other than that I like all the new features and Google Now rocks! Hope that helps01-03-2013 01:11 PM
- FWIW, I also had poor battery life after the JB update, media was the culprit. Pulled my SD card, pulled the battery and restarted, and problem seems to be fixed. I upgraded to a 64GB card around the same time I upgraded to JB, so not sure if that card specifically is the problem or not, I will need to do some more testing, but at least the immediate problem is fixed for me.01-04-2013 02:45 PM
- if you are using exchange, its the culprit. i can't believe this bug exists. Issue 31246 - android - 'com.android.email' Alarm count high connecting to Exchange Server (shows as 'AndroidOS' in Battery Stats) - Android - An Open Handset Alliance Project - Google Project Hosting01-09-2013 11:21 PM
- I found the following link in another forum, but wanted to post it here for anyone having poor battery life. I was able to leave my Samsung Galaxy S3 on overnight, uncharged, for the first time since I got it and still have half a charge left in the morning. The fix is located in the sixth post on the thread.

- How likely is it that the battery issue isn't just a result of the battery itself? I have been on JB since it came out (granted, I got the phone and updated on the same day, so it was running JB on a brand new phone) and it has ran great until about 5 days ago. No changes to apps, settings, and now I am lucky to get 6 hours out of the phone. As of this morning with responding to 1 text message, and viewing/clearing my notifications, I'm down to 52% battery after 2hrs 16min of use.01-22-2013 11:50 AM
- So after my post on the 52% after 2:16, I let my battery drain to dead overnight (sat dead most of the night). I plugged it in to a full charge this morning, and now after approx 2hrs off the charger, I'm only down to 91%. Is it a case of a "battery reset" via drain to dead? Not sure, but it's worked for me. I'll have to try this again the next time I have an issue to see if it holds true.01-23-2013 03:44 PM
- I've had my S3 for just a week. I did an OTA update to Jelly Bean. The battery seemed to be doing pretty well. However, last night, I charged the phone to 100% prior to going to sleep ~ 1 am. When I woke up @ 7 am, the battery was @ 40%. WTF?? I didn't do anything differently. I didn't have any processes running overnite. My phone is connected to my wireless router. My prior iPhone 3G never experienced such a rapid battery drain. I charged it up to 100% @ work ~ 1000 am. Now it's 6 3/4 hrs later and the battery is @ 75%. My phone connects to my workplace wireless. I keep bluetooth on all the time (as I did with my prior phone). I did also notice that when I got home around 6:30 last nite, the phone was @ 40%, but within a couple hours, it drained to 7%.
I hope last nite was just an abberation. I'm going to see what happens tonite and the next few days.
When I got home ~ 740 pm, battery @ 64%. There was a rapid drain to where the battery was dead ~ 1 am (6 hr later). This only happened the last couple nites. Here is a screenshot:
Where it says "14 h 5 m..... battery", right above the "e" in "battery" is probably when I arrived home. You can see the more steep downward decline. I disabled Samsung push as someone suggested above. Tomorrow, I will take the battery out and reseat it.01-23-2013 04:46 PM
- It because the new update so many running on the bg all you need it spend time try to disable some of then asap. also check what it running on the app application.
one more thing make sure you in deep sleep mode, my it close 98% try to dw app call cpu spy plus.and let it sit for 5-10 minutes and check how many % at deep sleep01-31-2013 08:38 AM
