Yesterday I let my battery drop to below 5% for the first time, just to see how long it would take. I noticed that as soon as the phone hit 5% it dropped the screen brightness down so dark I could barely see that it was on. When I opened the notification bar, the brightness control was gone. Plugging in the phone immediately brought it back to a usable brightness and the control returned. Is there a way to disable this?
Since this morning, my iPhone 6+ does not get the screen to full brightness. Even when setting full brightness and taking attesting off it is not full. You can see that when changing from portrait to landscape mode there is an area at the bottom that quickly appears on full brightness. How to get it back to normal?
I notice in some screen shots that people post that they have a Battery Level Indicator. I have seen these on the graphs from settings/about phone/battery usage.I don't have this indicator. The only time I see a battery level is when charging.
is it possible to switch off or almost switch of the backlight when using a GPS navigation? I do not need to watch the display as I follow the voice instructions from OVI maps and I think it could increase the battery life of my phone. Is there any way to use something like profiles using different backlight levels and only switch them easily by demand?
I just registered on the forum because i have a weird problem. My GSII first shows 'no network service' and it won't change unless i do a reboot. after the reboot my battery went from 40% to 9% It happened 3-4 times in the last 5 days. I already did the latest ics update via kies. the phone is not rooted. I did the hard restart. nothing helped. Here is the picture from the last drop [URL]
I recently got a brand new Galaxy S II with a new contract and have been using with a lot of joy. However, recently a problem occurred with the battery in a sense that it sometimes suddenly goes from 30-ish % to 0 instantly, therefore causing my phone to shut down with no warning. Also, after this happened, I cannot just plug in the phone to the charger, because for some reason it does not charge. I have to remove the battery and then put it back in again before I can charge it. This has been happening almost daily and I don't know what the cause is. The phone is not rooted or tampered with in any way.
I generally don't have trouble getting through a work day with my S6, but I do wonder whether the Android utilization is high. During a typical day (1 - 2 hours SOT, 14-15 hours off charger), I'm burning about 60%-70% of total battery, 30% of which is Android System (~22%) and Android Kernel (~8%). Google Play and other apps are all typically < 5%. Is this normal, or does this indicate that a factory reset might be a good idea? On previous phones I don't recall core Android being this high (usually <10%).
My S6 keeps randomly changing brightness even though auto brightness is off. And so I found this option via search within settings, which may very well be exactly what I was looking for but couldn't seem find it in the settings menu in developer option(which has already been enabled).....
The problem is that my battery indicator stays full all the time. Battery life is OK (2-3 days) but is very annoying cause I don't know the battery level. It pass from max level directly to 1line and shortly the phone switch off.I tried 3 kind of firmwares (including last one 410.21.010), charging phone in different ways, different chargers, hard reset etc. and nothing.The phone is new (2 weeks of use) but no warranty.Any solution?
So, I opted to do a restore on the new iPhone 4 from a 3G running iOS4 image. Everything seems to have restored just fine but I've noticed that the battery level percentage isn't being reported on the top of the screen. I've crawled through the settings and can't find anything on changing this.Was wondering if anyone else had run into this or if I'm going to need to bite the bullet and build the phone up from scratch. To be honest this shouldn't be necessary, but could be my only option.
BTW, my reason for doing the restore is simply a matter of data. I have several apps that contain 2 or more years of information. Most have a "save/restore" feature but several don't. Even those that do have their own unique way of saving which will add time to building the new phone.
My battery level was around the 50% mark, and then I went to lok at my gallery and whilst I was viewing pics it dropped straight away to 1% and told me to charge my phone..........So I plug in the charger and it goes straight back to 47%. It has done this twice, why?
I purchased a second hand nexus 5 to find out that the battery indicator is always showing 42% and never updates, regardless of the actual battery charge level. I tried replacing the battery with the one from my brother`s nexus 5, then replaced the usb port board. Also tried:
- rooting - installing twrp 220.127.116.11 - elemenalX 6.0 kernel - Android 6.0.1 - Cache and dalvik wipe - Use the battery until phone shuts down
Although the indicator jumped to 83% and to 54% after some actions which I dont remember. Maybe after cache wipe, not sure.
My observation is that REBOOT issue some how related to battery level reader s/w or something. because as soon as battery level goes below 80%(approx), device start rebooting and after some reboots it shows battery level in "red'.
Remove battery put back and 80% cases reboot cycle stops and battery level is normal. However it remains for some time only. try to make/recv call and it starts rebooting again.
The battery level often drops while charging. For example, it was 30% when I began to charge it. It reached 80% 20 hours later. I continue to charge it. 8 more hours later it became 0%. A few days ago I started at 15%, went up to 68%, then down to 11% in 30 hours of continuous charging. What is the cause of it? I just deleted many apps hoping to save the battery.
I used HTC 4g Amaze before and loved it. Then I had iPhone 6 for a couple of months, Samsung Note 4 another couple of months. I waited to get M9 believing it to be great due to my past experience with HTC. However, the problems with this new M9 are insurmountable.
my battery level drops suddenly from 15% to 1%.but when i connect to the charger it starts from 15%.did everything i can.reinstalled firmware 3 time.2 time with SEUS and one with the pc companion.went to the SE shop and changed the battery and got a new battery too, coz i had warranty. but the problem is still there since 5 months back?
I am facing a strange issue my Xperia neo is powering off the phone when battery level falls below 30%. First I thought its my oversight seeing the battery level but today again as I was typing a msg, the phone gave me warning battery level 1% and just got off. When I connected it to charnger and turned it on the battery level was indicating 28% power left. Can it be because of any application? I am using Juice defender as well.
Not too sure why but recently my battery life on my iPhone 5 has been awful! Firstly, I noticed the battery slowly starting to get worse at first, where I would barely make it through an evening and just about keep my phone alive. I then bought a charging case to use on nights out, which soon enough seemed to not be enough to keep the phone on.Â
Now, on a daily basis my phone switches off and I have to charge it throughout the day, I turns off sometimes just suddenly at 40% battery, other times at 20% and others it quickly jumps down to 1% and turns off shortly after. Earlier today I left my office with 86% battery. Went outside to make a phone call for maximum 15 minutes and my phone had quicky reduced to 10% low battery by the end of the conversation and 1% between my walk of 3 mins to then turn off before I was back in my seat.Â
I have experienced bad battery life on my previous Iphone but nothing like this. I did, however take it into Apple and where they backed up the phone and replaced it with a brand new one, however this iPhone is not still in my warranty (not entirely sure if the previous one was either to be honest).Â
I have done all of the recent updates, I close any existing apps and am not constantly on my phone anyway.
I purchased this z2 just this december and its acting weird for a month now.. It took me awhile figuring out why the unit just shuts down even if the battery percentage was considerably high. The true percentage level only shows up after i press the little thingy on the side for reset..
I've observed my N97 mini's battery level dropping abruptly from 4 bars to 1 bar (with low battery alarm). The phone's slightly more than a month old and using the latest 11.x.x firmware. Did a bit of googling, and found several suggestions on how to save battery (turn off everything 'smart' on ur phone). That's not the point anyways. I need to find out why the battery level drops suddenly (like what happens when ur battery's dying out), and *not* why the battery lasts X hrs. I'm not sure about this, but I think this mostly happens when the battery level is slightly below max, and I use any app that needs the GPS functionality. But then, there doesn't seem to be any problem with the GPS hardware in the phone, 'coz it usually gets a GPS lock in less than a minute (mostly within seconds). Could it be related to the algo used to show the battery level, or is it that its my battery that's faulty? Any others out there having the same problem?
the indicated battery level is often incorrect. Today again the battery icon was approximatively 40% (the same value is displayed in the Settings) and shortly after, the phone goes off, the battery completely empty. I know that the 40% value shown was incorrect because the last time i charged it was more than 24 hours ago.
Is there any way or any app that will display the battery level as a percentage? I've installed battery watch but I need to open the app in order to see the info. Also is there any apps that turn off the shutter sound?
The battery level indicator is faulty from day one. It shows sufficient balance but suddenly I find the phone switches off. When I try to switch on the phone, I get a message"battery drained out"This has to be a software problem like in iPhone 4 and RIM must address it by bringing a software update.
I Bought a new Xperia mini pro about 3 weeks back and it was so cool and I had no problems up till last week. The prblem of the phone is, the battery level drops to 1% suddenly from 20%. And it says battey is 1% and it'll shut down. I didn't do anything, no rooting nothing. it is same as new. It happened about 4 times during this last week. all 4 times it dropped from 20% or 17% or something to 1%. I'm really scared about that and somebody please help me what can i do regarding that. and when i connect it to the charger following that.
I am finding very strange thing happening with my Neo V - 1254 2586 which I purchased just 2 months back. Once a battery level comes down to 20% and if i try to do something after that, then it just shows me a warning for battery low and pressing OK makes mobile getting switched off automatically. It wont get restart again until and unless I wont put it for charging. When the phone get restarted then the charging level will start charging from 20% which is quite strange. I already removed the battery, cleaned the points many time but problem didn't get resolve.
No sooner did I get rid of my e-mail problem than another one cropped up. The last time I charged my phone, after I unplugged it, the battery level stayed at 100% for more than five hours. Then, when it got down to 30%, the phone warned about low battery level and shut down. Afterwards, it was impossible to turn back on.
Now, I've plugged it in and it still displays 30% battery. It looks like the indicator is out of whack. How can I reset it?
