Galaxy S3 Battery Drain (please read...I've done A LOT)
First off, save your breath. I'm not one of those people who don't understand why their battery is dying when their brightness is all the way up and they're running every app possible.
For the last three days or so my phone's battery has been draining, except it isn't the batteries fault. Yes, I know this is a common issue, but I've tried a lot and nothing is working.
Right now I am losing 1% of battery every 4 minutes, and this is when my phone is on standby the whole time and nothing is on, data isn't off, I'm not connected to wifi, I don't have Facebook on, literally all my apps are off. So my battery life for my phone, without even using it, is roughly 6 hours when it used to be around 20 or so.
I've tried everything, if you notice I said it's been doing this for 3 days. I purposely held off posting to do research and see if I could fix it, no dice.
Factory reset? Nothing
JuiceDefender (free)? No dice.
WakeLock Detector? Isn't telling me anything.
Hell, I even went to Verizon, and since it's a replacement phone I got a month ago through Asurion they basically told me to **** off, it's not their problem since they didn't give me the phone.
I still have the battery from my old phone and even when I use this battery it's still draining.
So I'm guessing it has to be some software update or some app that's running, but I don't know what! There hasn't been any app I've recently downloaded and if there is, the factory reset should have taken care of it.
Here's a picture of my WakeLock and battery usage.
So, does anyone know what the hell is going on?
