Besides the fact that the percentages don't add up to 100%, I have never seen the Android OS be so high in battery usage. When I click on Android OS for further detail, it says CPU Total = 1h 15m 35s. My phone was fully charged and I have only been on battery 1h 42m 0s. If these stats are correct, that means the Android system has been using my CPU for almost the whole time my phone has been on. What would cause this? Its very frustrating that I am down to 50% battery after only having my phone on for less than 2 hours. In the time my phone has been on, I haven't done any processor intensive task like web browsing and have not run any apps at all other than Gmail.
I updated the software on my Droid 3 about a week ago. Ever since the battery life on my phone has been awful.Lucky to last 4-5 hours.I have noted that when I turn on to flight mode (but still use the GPS) the battery life remains reasonable. If I have any sort of network coverage the battery just drains. I get the feeling that the new software now polls all the time and the constant network traffic it is generating is draining the battery.
My Droid Turbo has had great battery life all the time. All of a sudden my battery can barely make it a few hours without dying. It had become ridiculous. When I look at the battery in my settings, its saying that email is draining the majority of my battery.
anyone else noticed this? what's up with that??when the battery fully dies and i plug it in to the charger-no lights or anything. won't charge. when i pull the battery and put it back in, it starts charging again.
I've had the Droid Turbo for a few months now, and the battery life has been great. It was the biggest reason I bought this phone in the first place. Over the past two days, however, the battery life has DRAMATICALLY downgraded. At 11 p.m. last night, I had 58% battery life with no apps running. The phone was in sleep mode. That much battery should have been able to get me through last night and ALL of TODAY. This morning, I check my phone, and I'm at 22% with the phone not in use for 8 hours.
All of the bells and whistles on this device are turned off. I don't have the reach out display thing turned on where it recognizes your movement. The screen is only taking up 30% of the battery draw. I have the bare minimum notifications turned on - the rest are off. My system did NOT update within the last two days. The battery simply seems to be freaking out.
Recently com.motorola.service.main has been draining my battery rapidly. The phone itself seems to be running hotter. My usage patterns have not changes, but my data usage has increased. I've used 1.6G in 6 days when last month I was hard pressed to use 2G total.
Since .893 I've seen the % of battery used by 'Android OS' to be significantly higher than before. Previously (after 12 or more hours of uptime) I'd typically always have Display as the highest %. Now it's always Android OS. Right now I'm at 16 hours on battery and my Android OS is 64% at 44 min. My Display is only 7 min.
All the same apps since before .893 and no new ones. Factory reset has made no difference in this. if this is something known and to be addressed in .901 ?
Android OS keeps using 35 to 45% of the battery. My droid, DroidX, and Thunderbolt never used that much. This is the culprit for such a horrible battery life. I have the wifi off now and gps off when im not using it and it still has issues holding the charge for awhile. I wish I could delete the motocast account to see if that is the issue but I cant. Could it be smart actions that is causing the thing to continually search for triggers and wear battery? Or is it motocast? I don't use motocast or the stock music app ever and my mac is off too. So I want to know why the android OS is eating this battery up. Is there some fix on the way? I deleted every app and it still will show that android OS as the main battery hog by a lot. I only have gmail I don't have facebook updating anything so I really don't know what's going on.. I do know that when i used cpu spy the 300 megahertz was used for longer than the phone was in deep sleep. So something is using the CPU in that range non stop it seems.
In the past 3 days this % of battery usage has gone up dramatically. Close to 50% on 3 different charge cycles. No new apps installed and nothing new under running apps that I'd normally have to manually kill. (I've disabled most all of what I can of bloatware)
Just got my upgraded XOOM back a few days ago, and I've noticed that the battery life is far, far worse than it was before I sent it away. I mainly use my XOOM for reading ebooks, so I nearly always have airplane mode on. Before the upgrade, I could go several days, sometimes even a week before having to charge the battery, even with occasional excursions outside airplane mode.
However, after the upgrade, I can have the XOOM fully charged, in airplane mode, read for an hour just before going to sleep, shut off the screen, and wake up the next day with 60% battery remaining, as opposed to being in the 90-95% range before the upgrade.
The battery usage app shows 87% screen, 11% idle, 3% drmserver. One strange thing I've noticed is that under Settings > About tablet > Status, I see this:
Network: Searching for service Signal strength: -120dBm 16 asu Mobile network type: Unknown:0 Service state: Radio off Roaming: Not roaming Mobile network state: Disconnected
Why would it be searching for service in airplane mode? Did something break in 3.2.2?
So my questions are:
1. Is anyone else experiencing the same symptoms as above (reduced battery life after upgrade, screen showing most usage)?
2. Is there any way for me to downgrade to 3.2 in order to see if that helps? I don't care if that disables 4G, since I'm not in a 4G coverage region.
The dreaded fast battery drain finally starting happening to me the past couple of days. Last night I checked the battery usage and noticed something called 'RILD' was using up 14% of my battery life. What is it? Can you get rid of it? Why was it appearing last night but today after power cycling my phone it's no longer on the list of battery uses?
In addition I noticed that it seems to be taking much longer to charge my battery now than it did before. My car charger seems to be ineffective at charging even though it appears to be working correctly. The light on the charger is lighting up and my phone's indicator is showing it as being charged. But after 30 minutes of charging it hasn't budged the battery meter one iota.
My battrery has been running low quickly . For instance, I charged it yesterday and when it was done charging I made a phone call. I was on the phone for about 11/2 minutes. After I got off I looked at my battery and it was down 1/2 a brick. I've tried removing the battery for awhile, but it doesn't seem to help. I talk on it a lot through the day so I can understand it needing charged at night, but 1 minute off the charger and it's already losing power? I don't use the internet that much, but I do play games. The phone is about a month old. Any advice?
Is there an Android phone that can be used for testing Android applications loaded directly to the phone from a development environment through a local wifi connection without signing up to a carrier network?
Do anybody have a problem with the android email not want to scroll right when you trying to look at a email? What it is do is not wanting to move around sometimes like it is stuck but I can't figure it out.
For the past several days for me. I just get "Loading..." and the perpetually rotating gear. Yet my notification bar is letting me know I have updates available. I just can't open the Market to DL them.
I got a notification for update to Android 4.0.4 for MotorolaXYBoard WiFi in the US.
I tried three time and the installation failed. Unit is well connected to his docking station and strong wifi signal. Download was OK.
After the ANDROID icom appear and install started, I got a yellow triangle and after then a message that the install failed. The fact that I'm not in the USA righ now, could be a problem for the dowload ? I tried 3 times.
When I look at the battery use in Settings/Battery Information it shows items such as WIFI at 4+% ( WIFI not even on) or a game I played (today Jewels Star at 25% - only was to make this one disappear is to uninstall the program, this is true with any game I play). My question is, is this information about what WAS running or information on what IS running. or both.
I see that ICS will allow you to take photos while recording video simultaneously. Might there be a future update that would allow you to take photos after the video is finished recording? Just in case you forgot to hit the snapshot button while you are holding your breath to steady your shot.
I installed onavo a few days ago and have noticed this process called «Android OS + others« using like 50 mb of data in just 3 days.....so what is my phone doing that its using that kind of data?? Can anyone help me figure this out? Im pretty sure all my social apps and stuff arent set up to auto sync and if thsy were it would be listed under the apps name not android os...
I apologize if this has been addressed already, but I've reached my limit of patience with search engines and forum web sites for one day. The issue: on a Motorola Droid pro, running 2.3.2, CompanionLink's Outlook sync ran reasonably well, although it required some odd steps which they claim are driven by the OS. After the Android 2.3.3 update, CompanionLink (AKA DejaOffice) fails consistently and without useful error output. The software on the PC side does not recognize that sync has started on the device side -- which is how it's supposed to work on a Droid -- and never runs to completion.
The PCs in question are running either Windows 7 Pro 64 or Windows XP. Both exhibit similar symptoms. CompanionLink tech support has been useless -- by definition, since they haven't solved my problem. They appear to be being slammed with a large number of cases reported and have no plan they're willing to discuss to address the problem. So: (The two most common, turning off bluetooth and turning off USB debugging, don't work for me, by the way. Already tried 'em.) Any other product for syncing at least Outlook contacts and calendar with Droid?

[URL]According to MSNBC Technology, vast majority of Motorola devices have no slated release date of ICS. This may or may not be true. I don't believe everything I read, but I figure its worth discussing anyway
I have a Droid Razr MAXX. USB Debugging is off; MTP is the USB setting. I've turned my phone off then on again. However, my Macbook Pro (currently running Lion) does not register the phone as a USB device, and AFT asks me to connect my phone with a USB cable to get started.
The wife and I both have Razrs. For some reason, I got the notification to update to ICS, she never did. So, when you go to system updates, you can download ICS, but when you procede to update, it gives the attached message.
I've triedusing the Android mp3 player, but it has a cute anal-retentive habit of compulsively storing - and playing - the songs alphabetically instead of the order in which they were downloaded from the CD. What's this about? This is particularly infuriating when trying to store and listen to anything that has a narrative order
