Nokia Lumia :: 710 Battery Life Has Changed?

Oct 3, 2012

First of all I should say that i can't download anything from the market since August (or something like that), Zune's Team is trying to solve the problem since last week, but nothing worthy until now...

On the other hand since Monday but battery life has changed, and even with the full battery the prediction of time (displayed on settings menu) until it becomes empty is about 16 hours, nothing more. Before that I could see a prediction of more than 40 hours, and the phone used to last that long. Now, with the same applications, etc. it decreases drastically, should i send the phone for warranty?

Nokia Lumia :: 920 Battery Life Suddenly Changed?

Nov 30, 2012

I had my red 920 since 11/9 and it has been great until this Tuesday. Previously the battery was great and after full charge it usually showed battery life 1day or even longer. This Tuesday I used camera a lot. The handset did get warmer because of flash and focus assist lamp. After that night the battery darin rate became really fast. After one overnight charge 100% battery only shows 9hours and drain rate was like 10% per hour. why this occured suddently? Do I need to reset the phone to factory?

Nokia Lumia :: 800 Poor Battery Life?

Nov 18, 2011

battery run out very quickly. I had it charged last night and when I got up in the morning it was down to 35% from just sitting there. It might have been updating email but that shouldn't kill the battery like that. I don't use it that much during the day but it seems to go down really fast. I'm currently at 47% and it estimates 1 hour left....

Nokia Lumia :: 900 Poor Battery Life?

Apr 29, 2012

My Lumia 900 is getting really poor battery life and can barely last a full day with minimal use. Under moderate to heavy use the phone doesn't last more than 5 hours. I have done two hard resets already and its still the same. It appears others have the same problem.

Nokia Lumia :: 610 - Poor Battery Life?

Aug 2, 2012

I purchased my Lumia 610 about 2 weeks back, and I have not gotten a full day (24 hours) of work out of it yet. When charged to 100%, it shows 16-19 hours of battery life. My usage is typically around this:1 hour on the phone.15 minutes of Twitter. 15 minutes of browsing on 3G. No bluetooth/ WiFi/ Internet sharing on most days. Manual brightness setting. Battery Saver on. Dark backgroundLocation settings off. Email refresh after 1 hour. XBox signed out. I can't think of anything else I can do to reduce my power consumption. I'm using the firmware version 1066.0000.8779.12201, which according to my Customer care is the latest firmware version. Nokia claims a 720 hr standby time on 3G, which I am nowhere close to.

Nokia Lumia :: 710 Remaining Battery Life % Not Correct?

Oct 3, 2012

I've had my Lumia 710 for a few months now and over the past week the remaining battery life percentage is way wrong. For instance, one day I noticed my battery icon was really low so I went to check the % and it said it was -4%. I was even able to make a 10 minute call and it never died on me. A few days ago I had about 70% but when I checked the phone a few minutes later it was around 10%. A few times I've even had it die on me and it never gives me the critical battery warning.This morning it was dead when I woke up so I brought my charger to work. After charging only 30 minutes it said I had 57% battery. But now 4 hours later I'm sitting at 98% and it looks like it won't go past that. Is something wrong with my battery or could the battery life indicator just be way off?

Nokia Lumia :: 800 / WP 7.5 OS - Battery Life 12 Hours With Full Charge

May 24, 2012

I have just got my Lumia 800 and seems pretty fancy. But still one thing which really bothers me a lot. The battery life! I have update to WP7.5 on day 1. System information as below:

OS version 7.10.8107.79
Firmware version : 1600.2487.8107.12070

The thing is, I unplugged the charger at 9 in the morning and when it came to around 9 in the night. The battery is critical low. I just made few calls, text and no more than 10 mins twitter stuff and the battery is done? My iphone could even stand for 1 day with this usage. I tried everything, reset the fone. But seems not working.

Nokia Lumia :: Semi-scientific Test On Battery Life Post Portico?

Dec 24, 2012

I have a red 920.So I charged my battery to 100% and took it off the charger. This was in the middle of the night (yes, I'm a night owl). But I did it because I wanted to test it with absolutely no use. So I set the wifi to always on and left the phone. four hours later I checked the battery. It was down to 60%. This was after absolutely no use. The only thing I have is two email accounts set to fetch every hour.

i then recharged to 100% again, changed the wifi settings back to the original setting and left it for another 4 hours. The battery was down to 63%. Not that much different from setting wifi to always on.However, previously my phone would lose at most 1% after idle for even 8 hours. As I stated my battery life has always been very good.the only difference was the OS update, no new apps, no setting changes, etc. I have to assume it was the update. I know it's not really scientific and partially anecdotal but it is what it is.

BB Curve 8900 :: How To Increase Battery Life - With 6.5 - Hour Battery Life

Apr 30, 2010

Iíve got a BlackBerry Curve 8900 (ATT, running, and have had it since Oct. 2009. Battery life has always been OK - 24 to 48 hrs. between recharges.

Today though, after pulling it off the charger this morning around 8:00 a.m., Iíve noticed that Iím down to about 5% charge by 2:30 p.m. I have made no phone calls today, and have only sent/received a couple texts and recíd two emails. I've never used a holster, have downloaded no apps, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi are both off. No keys appear to be sticking. Absolutely nothing, to my knowledge, of any significance has changed on the phone since October, yet all of a sudden --literally, overnight --I am experiencing this greatly diminished battery life. The only even remotely precipitating factor I can think of is that I did a battery pull yesterday, after deleting some old photos and emails.

Iíve searched the forum, and most of the suggestions are along the lines of ďturn off bluetooth/wi-fi/update OS,Ē but as noted, I never used those anyhow, and the OS has always been good to me.

Lumia 950 :: Notifications (banner) On Lock Screen And Battery Life

Jan 6, 2016

I always use WhatsApp web. Before getting my Lumia 950 I used Android: when I received notifications on WhatsApp web the screen of the phone remained off so the battery wasn't suffering much.

On WP I first turned off the notifications on lock screen: then I realized it wasn't even making sounds nor vibrate! Then I turned the banner in WhatsApp notifications settings off: now the notifications are there without turning on the screen, but I have no banner even when the phone is unlocked.

Is there another way to prevent for every app the screen from turning on when locked and a notification arrives, and show normal banners when unlocked?

Nokia :: N900 Struggling To Save Battery - Not Get More Than 6 Hours Battery Life

May 14, 2010

So had my N900 for a little over a week now and overall I'm pretty impressed. Great phone, but still very much a work in progress. One of the main issues I have at the moment, other than no turn-by-turn navigation (sorry, had to mention it), is the battery life - or lack of!

On an average weekday I use the phone to send a few texts (no more than 10), scan the news sites (no more then 20-30mins total) and catch up on my RSS feeds (again, no more than 20-30 mins total). I'm not using the media player at all and I may make one or two short calls.

Bottom line is that I'm struggling to get more than 6 hours battery life out of it. I know smart phones are thirsty, but I don't even get to listen to music on my way to or from work!Here's what I've already done to reduce battery consumption:

Removed active widgets (such as ForcaWeather) from desktops and replaced with web shortcuts.Reduced screen brightness to 2 barsDisabled GPS & Network positioningDisabled IMDisabled BluetoothI've heard some mention reducing the amount of active desktops, but I think that kinda defeats the object of having a N900. May as well buy a lesser phone if you need to strip out all the functionality to get though the day. I'd be satisfied with 8-10 hours medium use. At the moment I'm getting around 6 hours at light use - got to be something I'm missing.

The only way I can keep it on is by leaving on the charger.

Nokia :: E72 - Battery Life - Optical Pad - Camera -

Jan 10, 2010

After having used the E72-1 (Made in Finland) for almost three weeks, I have the following observations. First I must note that though the list of positive points is shorter than the list of negative points, this should not scare one away from the E72! Positive experiences are more difficult to note than negative ones are. I am very happy with the E72, and most certainly don't regret it! Some people recommended to get the E71 (I expected the E72 to be available only in mid-January and at a much higher price, until I was suddenly informed it would be available in December already), but I didn't do so, primarily because of the following: HSUPA, 3.5mm audio connection, 5 MP camera. These are really significant improvements over the E71!


* Battery life is quite decent. Since I do tend to charge it both at home and at the office by default, I haven't really tested it extensively, except for one day: I used it very intensively during some 5 hours on a hiking trip in the forest. I took 70 pictures, made 4 videos totaling some 10 minute, sent 5 pictures through Gmail, had a 15-minute phone call, 10-minute Nimbuzz call, some 2 hours on GPS (Google Earth) with tens of position fixes, and some time chatting on Nimbuzz. After that, it was almost empty. I wouldn't expect anything else after such use. (Since I had my laptop with me as well with some 12 hours of power, I could have charged via USB sleep-and-charge from my laptop, if needed).

* I like the optical pad. I only use laptops (as opposed to desktop computers); it's similar to a laptop touchpad, which I use all day. If you use laptops a lot, you'll love this.

* Camera is excellent. Both video and pictures.

* Email client works fine. Both Exchange and Gmail work fine, without any problems. For Exchange, I get new mails on my phone, through 3G, even before I get them on my laptop (Outlook 2007), through company LAN!

* GPS is excellent. Works great with Google Maps.Gets GPS fix in seconds.

* Bluetooth to laptop works fine (heard some things about problems with Bluetooth, though one source said this is specifically regarding earpieces, which I don't use).

* Signal strength is quite good. Switches from EDGE to 3.5G *and back* without problems.


* I had the spacebar-not-working issue just once. Rebooting fixed it.

* When you connect the phone through USB, sometimes it will start charging, sometimes not. (No relation to USB port, nor to battery status). Sometimes you just have to plug it in three times before it will charge through USB.

* Built-in chat client is more or less useless.

* GPS trip distance barely seems to work; first it registered me as having had a 26 km/h max speed while walking (not running!), then after walking for an hour it told me I had walked 350 meters.

* Sometimes, there is no sound in both Nimbuzz and Fring on calls via Skype and Google Talk. Often, the other party can hear me, but I cannot hear them (sometimes, neither side heard anything). Since this happens both with Fring and with Nimbuzz, it must be something in the phone.

* The spacebar is small. It is manageable, but small. Takes some time to get used to.

* On my (Israeli) edition, Hebrew (and ciphers) are in white, and English is in dark orange, which is almost unreadable. This is very annoying, since I, as - I imagine - most users of a phone like this, use English more than Hebrew. If anything annoys me, this is it. After a while of course, I don't need to look at the keys any more - but it's still annoying.

* The battery cover comes off easily, but *only* if you want it to. It will never fall off during normal use - only if you're actively and consciously touching the battery cover. I cannot imagine walking on the street, calling, and the battery cover suddenly falling on the sidewalk (which is the impression you get from some comments I read).

* I want to have flash off by default on the camera. Haven't yet found a way to do that.

If anyone has more questions, feel free to ask! Also, if you want to see 70 pictures and 4 videos shot with my E72, let me know and I'll send you the link to download them (219 MB).

Nokia :: N97 Mini / Draining Battery Life

May 23, 2010

Has anyone else been having battery problems with their N97 mini battery recently.It started 7 days ago for me. I unplugged my phone mid charge, and noticed that on my phone the battery icon was still moving as if it was charging. I thought it was cute because maybe the atmosphere or my charisma were still charging my phone for me. I restarted my phone and it returned to normal. The following day my phone did the same thing, only this time I didn't restart it, but eventually my phone ran out of charge. Since then the battery life on my phone has been very poor, I only get about 8 hours max, and thats when I have not been on the net or made anything more than one 10 minute phone call. The battery icon has stopped moving when its unplugged, but the battery life is terrible.I have updated my software today so I will monitor it, but seriously is there something up with my battery? It has left me short two days now where I am in town and my phone has died. I am not happy.Any suggestions people?

Nokia :: E72 Battery Life Flight Mode And Wifi On / Off?

Jan 29, 2010

I've been testing the E72 for a client but we've now been through three of them because of poor battery life; battery life on limited usage (2 or 3 calls, 15 minutes of web browsing and business hours Exchange active sync) results in all examples struggling to make 8 hours before the battery dies - just 1.6% of the quoted ~500 hours standby figure - surely that's not right?There are no active wifi connections, which reminds me: on the E72, how do you enable 'flight mode' and separately, disable just the wifi?Current device software version is; it can't find any updates to it.

Nokia :: 6700 Classic Battery Life Became Short

Feb 21, 2010

The phone has been dropped accidentally (from no great height and everything appeared to working fine) but now I've noticed the battery life will barely last 4 hours. Initially I put this problem down to the battery itself but after buying a brand new battery the same thing has started.

The battery will suddenly jump from half full on the indicator to empty, it'll then beep a few times over 5 minutes and then it'll be dead. On average I'm not having to charge the phone three times a day to use it.
