    My battery is draining much faster than I would assume it should. In just under an hour, the battery has dropped 39% and the weird thing is the usage isn't from games and movies and the like, but rather 2 apps called "Android System" and "HTC Sense." This is my first HTC phone so I don't know what either of these apps are or how I can prevent them from using so much power. Attached is a screenshot of my usage after only 52 minutes of usage from the last charge.

    I have all my auto-syncing turned off. The last 2 apps I downloaded were one to show my battery percentage (Battery) and one to wake up the phone when I get a text message (Screen Notifications). Would either one of these suck my battery dry? Other than that, the only apps I have are those two games that are shown in the usage picture as well as Facebook/twitter/Instagram/etc, none of which sync or send me notifications. Any help would be much appreciated.

    Also, is there a standard for charging a battery to full, watching a certain video, and seeing how far the battery drops during that time span? Thanks

    Edit: Sorry for the HUGE picture, I don't know how to resize it.

    Double Edit: As the picture shows, this is with power saver mode on as well.

    Download Wakelock Detector and a Battery Monitor. Try using them for a day and see what you find out. If there isn't anything it's probably a faulty unit or battery. You can try to reset your phone to factory if you would like to.

    Yeah you have to download wakelock detector. Apps like Facebook cause lots of wakelocks in the background even if it's not syncing.

    Sweet, I'll definitely try wakelock detector. Also, is there a benchmark for testing battery life? EG watch a certain video for a certain amount of time and see how much battery is drained? Thanks for the replies

    Interesting... I've been busy surfing fb about 45 min. Nothing else and am on wifi. Battery has dropped about 20% that seems a little much

    Haven't used chrome.. FB, twitter, instagram.. Why would chrome be sucking this much juice?
