In the past few weeks i noticed that i cant make it through the day without charging.. this wasnt the case when i first got it...battery usuage shows 25-30% for android os.. anyone else having this issue ?
Have you checked to see what is running on your phone? I have gotten better battery life after a few charges.
Now with moderate use I get anywhere from 16 to 18 hrs.,with light use more then that ,,,,lightest use I ever had I got over 24 hrs .
1) Make sure your Word for Friends isn't set to check every 5 minutes
2) Upgrade to v4.04, it makes a HUGE DIFFERENCE
3) Run on WIFI instead of 4G during the day if possible, its much kinder to the battery life
Using WIFI + v4.04 I can go 40-48 hours on a Charge!!! I'm at 75% battery life left with 12 hours on battery so far (20 minutes of voice talk, lots of data stuff).
Hey thanks for all the tips... I finally figured it out... I downloaded avast and ran the virus scan... It identified Brightest Flashlight Free by goldenshores tech as malware... It's in the market with tons of positive feedback.. Has to be bogus... I got rid it and now have 50% battery after work where I used to have to charge on my way home... my android os battery usage is at around have of what it was too.
