    Default Media server & battery

    I've seen a huge difference in my battery life. What is "media server" ? Also I signed out of you tube and closed it.... but it's still using battery?

    I had a currupt file (picture) on my SD card a while back. As a result I was showing a high battery use. I had to go through all of my pic to find the currupt one. Removed it and the phone was all good. The wife had the same issue only hers was a currupt music file. Try removing your SD card and see if the media server battery use goes down. If so a currupt file would be my guess. Good luck 🍀

    Yep I suspect it was something like that. I downloaded an app called battery doctor. I thought I had everything closed. Turns out there were many apps (including music app that was downloading album covers to my gallery) running in the background all the time! Facebook messenger & Pandora were also always open even though I would "quit" them. Huge difference in battery life now! Way better!!
