Google Nexus 5 :: How To Share Content With Samsung TV

Aug 4, 2014

After having had a hard time with a very crappy SG3, I am a very happy user of the Nexus 5 for two months now.
The only thing I miss a little bit is the easy way in which I could share my pics, movies etc to my Samsung TV (I have got a UE55ES8080 at home).

I tried to find apps like Samsung Allshare Play or something like it in the Playstore, but most of them are very badly rated and users recommend you to keep your fingers off them.

I definitely won't spend even more money on a Cromecast stick. Hey, I already got a TV that's supposed to be "Smart".

Google Nexus 5 :: Photos App (not Gallery) Doesn't Share To Facebook

It appears that the Photos app (not the Gallery app) doesn't share to Facebook properly. I select a photo (or photos) and hit the share button, select Facebook. It thinks about it for a few seconds, then the Facebook post screen appears but with no photos attached.

If i do it from the Gallery app then everything works fine.

Google Nexus 5 :: Google Update Caused Rapid Battery Drain

Feb 27, 2015

Yesterday I did an update to several programs including Google and noticed major battery drain. I was not sure which program did it but checked Battery in Settings and saw it was the screen causing the drain. Apparently when the Google program updated, it changed the setting for automatic brightness adjustment to ON. I turned it off and the battery is fine. I keep brightness set to about one quarter to one third brightness. I think the battery life is great and I can easily get thru the day.

Google Nexus 5 :: Google Play Services Battery Drain

Ever since the android 6 update I have noticed that Google play services is always top of my battery drain stats.

Also the mobile radio active figure is always going up and up!

I do have a android wear device synced but I always have and never noticed this is lollipop.

What could be causing this? I don't have Google now or location services on ...

Google Nexus 5 :: Battery Monitor Do Not Add Up To Total Battery Drain?

Nov 29, 2015

Nexus 5, 16GB, MRA58N (stock, not rooted). Sometimes the power percentages shown for each process in the battery monitor do not add up to the total battery drain? I am finding that sometimes they add up to within 1% of the total shown.... and sometimes they are WAY off with as much as 30% of the displayed battery drain unaccounted for. Since I don''t have access to the battery terminals, I can't determine independently whether the percentages shown are simply inaccurate, or whether there are missing processes (ie., processes not shown at all in the battery monitor).

Galaxy S6 :: Android OS Killing Battery Life

Nov 5, 2015

I had my Samsung Galaxy s6 G920F one week ago, nothing to say about the phone, amazing battery life. I always plug my phone to charger when I'm home after work, I don't leave it plugged while I'm sleeping. During the night the phone consumes like 1 to 2% battery. I shut down wifi, bluetooth and data during the night. Two days ago I installed Adobe acrobat reader, and disabled some built-in apps which I don't use (Google play music, google newsstand, chrome, hangouts, google+ and skype). Before I go to sleep my phone was 82% battery. When I woke up, my phone was 64% battery. I thought that the issues with Samsung/Android battery life are over with android 5.1.1 and galaxy s6, but in fact no.

I found that a clear cache can solve my issue. I did this and battery drain stopped. Yesterday night, I decided to make a full wipe/clear data, and clear cache. I reinstalled same apps that were on the mobile before, and disabled the same built-in apps. Phone was at 74% when I went to sleep. This morning, my phone was at 52%!!! So I uninstalled Adobe Reader, and activated all the apps that I disabled before, restarted into recovery and cleared cache. Now the issue disappeared again, but I wonder if this will not appear again when I charge my phone to 100%.

Motorola Photon 4G :: Its Idle Killing My Battery

Feb 21, 2012

the last few days my battery has not even come close to getting me through the day. No new apps. I look at my battery usage and find that Phone Idle is the largest user of my battery. While researching this I find tons of folks who are like "that's normal", but it is almost always even with cell standby. My usage is as follows right now (and this is what it's been like for the past 3 days): phone idle: 37%. Display: 23%, Voice calls: 15%, android OS 10%, Cell standby: 8%. Those are not the numbers anyone else I've spoken to that is running android is seeing. They are seeing phone idle running even or just below cell standby. I'm off battery for 8 hours and down to 25%. I won't make it home before I have to plug in the phone, and for the last 6 months my battery has been making it all day.

Galaxy S6 :: Screen Randomly Coming On And Going Off - Killing Battery

Nov 10, 2015

A co worker of mine has a S6 and is having trouble with the screen randomly coming on and going off. As a result I think it's killing his battery. If I look at his battery stats the screen is sitting on 32%, Messenger is at 16% and Facebook is 13%. That's the three biggest readings and all others look normal. What's happening is that the screen will just pop on by itself, stay for 4 or 5 seconds, turn off for about 5 seconds, then come right back on and stay for 4 or 5 seconds. The cycle keeps repeating itself. He says that it will do this sometimes for 4 or 5 days in a row, then not do it for maybe close to a week, then it comes back.

I thought he might be getting some sort of reminder from something that is turning the screen on but then it doesn't make sense that it goes right back off again. Since it's not my phone I can't get any screen grabs or anything.

Galaxy S5 :: Media Server Is Killing Battery - How To Stop

Feb 16, 2015

Media server is killing my battery, and fast. I mean a 40% drop in 2 hours yesterday while phone was on sleep with wifi and mobile data disabled. I'm in the UK using S5 900F standard model on kitkat 4.4.2.

Since then I have:
- unmounted Samsung SD card (it only had a few photos and apps on it, had it a week)
- force stopped all "media apps" despite dire warnings as to world ending if I do so etc, and cleared data
- repeatedly cleared cache
- rebooted phone in safe mode and am monitoring. Battery drain is better but media server is still the main culprit at 27% (down from 51% but still..)

I can't keep it on safe mode all day as it's highly inconvenient.

Phone is unrooted, 3 months old so warranty is important. I can't download mediaserver killer etc

I am unable to isolate which media files are causing this or why. I thought it was the SD card which I added recently but it's a Samsung and should work, plus the problem hasn't disappeared after removing it.

I haven't downloaded any apps since the problem started, or downloaded any media files. I have no games on the phone. A little music, Spotify premium (force stop and now disabled by safe mode), 50 photos. Before the mediaserver problem started about a week ago, battery lasted 1 1/2 days at least. I'm not a heavy user of online media (bit of YouTube but never download or watch movies on my phone).

Motorola :: Phone Pouch Killing Battery On Milestone

Jul 29, 2010

I recently bought this generic phone pouch with a belt clip and every once in a while the battery and phone will be completely dead. The pouch covers the phone entirely except for the top which is open and I can slide the phone into the pouch from the top. I am sure that the pouch does not have a magnet ie the phone is not coming out of sleep while in the pouch. Even in Airplane mode and all wireless devices turned off the phone dies. I cannot understand and believe this. The pouch is relatively tight and the only thing I can think of is that somehow the side camera button and/or rocker volume switch combination is being "pressed" while in the pouch and causes the phone to turn on and die.

If the phone battery doesn't die the battery is down by 40% with no use at all during the day ie I always use the phone in Airplane mode while at work. I do not answer the phone while working.What could be causing this? I can just go buy a new pouch but this totally does not make any sense to me.

Xperia Ray :: GPS Runs Non-stop -  Killing Battery Life

Feb 12, 2012

I've been having a problem the last few days. My GPS icon stays on continuously and ***** the battery dry. I've seen issues where it will stay on for 12 hours. Even though I thought that was abnormal, it would eventually turn off and resume normal function.

Now it is just running non-stop and the only way for me to stop it is to manually turn off the GPS.

Samsung Galaxy S II :: After ICS Update Android OS Killing Battery

Jul 20, 2012

I've been noticing my battery draining pretty fast. I've had the phone just over a month and days when I'm at work all day, maybe do some surfing on my lunch or breaks, but nothing to excessive and my battery is down to like 35% when I get home. Before I was going under Settings->Battery and I noticed "Screen" was the number one offender for draining my battery. Which makes sense, it's a bright display and powering it takes a lot of juice. I don't know if it's coincidence or not, however, it's when I started noticing it after installing ICS. Now "Android OS" has replaced it at the top, by a LOT. Here is a list of my top five

Android OS: 58%
Screen: 18%
Cell Standby: 10%
Phone Idle: 7%
Android System: 2%

BB Storm2 9550/9520 :: Replacement / Applications Killing Battery

Jan 24, 2010

Just got my S2 replacement and upgraded to .428 before I even did the swap devices with the DM, and now this phone is set up just like my last one with all the same apps and it is absolutely killing the battery. I dont know what it could be, I have went through and checked the obvious to make sure it was all good( brightness, 1XEV only, no apps running in the background or updating, wifi off etc). I've lost 10% in less than 20 mins after a full charge. Maybe delete all the apps and reload them one by one again?

Google Nexus 5 :: Cannot Turn Bluetooth On

Dec 4, 2015

Rooted Nexus 5 running stock 4.4.4 . Until now I've had Bluetooth turned off to save battery but I now want to use it in my car. However it is grayed out in the phone settings and will not turn on. If I select to turn it on in settings, it switches to a grayed out "on" (see screenshot) and 2 seconds later goes back to off. I've checked my apps such as xprivacy, etc. and cannot find a reason for this.

Google Nexus 5 :: Bluetooth Turned On

Sep 18, 2015

It seems like all of a sudden my Nexus 5 has decided that whenever I have Bluetooth turned on that it is holding the device awake. Even when no devices are connected (connects to my car and a BT speaker).

I'm sure it didn't used to do this.

Because of the hold awake battery life is down compared to normal.

Then from GSAM:

You can see that BT sharing takes up a non-trivial amount of power. I'd like to get this thing back to normal.

Fully patched firmware, including today's Security patch.

I'm currently working around this by turning BT on only when I want to use it. That is difficult....

IPhone :: Killing Apps In Multitasking Menu Decreasing Battery Life In IP 4?

Jul 5, 2010

I was super satisfied w battery life of my new iPhone 4 the first two days and until it ran down to 1%. After that I think it decrease too much and almost 1% per minute when surfing. But one thing I might be wrong is killing apps in the multitasking menu. Will that increase or decrease battery life? I am thinking maybe it will decrease rather since it is more of an effort to reload the program then having it idle in memory. Am I wrong and what else could affect battery life? I have fixed usual suspects, brightness, location services and push services.
