I got a new Lumia 900 recently and have noticed that the battery hardly lasts half a day.I have emails configured as push, whatsapp running and the weather flow app. I have turned off all other background tasks.1. Does the people hub sync in the background? The feeds update only when I open the app, so I am not sure.2. Does the me hub sync in the background?3. Will removing their tiles from the start screen, will they stop syncing? Or do I have to unlink my Facebook, twitter and linked accounts completely?4. If I turn in background tasks for a program like flickr/imdb, will they sync even if they dont have live tiles on the home screen? What do they sync? I have always seen them start from scratch when I open he apps.
I have the Lumia 820 with the Navigon navigation app installed. I went on a trip this past weekend and noticed a strange battery drain while driving to my destination. The drive was a little over 2 hours and I was charging the phone the whole time. I figured I would test it on the drive home. I charged the phone completely before starting the drive home. I was camping so I had to use the lighter jack in the car which is always on and charged the phone from less then 10% to 100% overnight. Again the drive was a little over 2 hours, had the Navigon app open and running the whole time and the phone was plugged into the lighter and the charging icon was registering a charge the whole time. The only other thing running was cellular data. NFC, Bluetooth, Wifi, Nokia Drive, all off. When I arrived home the phone was at 45% and was very hot.
I upgraded from the Samsung Focus and using the Navigon app in the same car never ever had less power when I I ended a trip to when I started a trip. I use the Navigon app all time so this is a real issue. I am also going to post this on the Navigon website.
The Nokia Lumia 900 got BRICKED within a week of getting it....Here is what happened, last night I could not get my phone recharged on time and as I was doing something the phone suddenly froze and died as it had ran out of juice. I left it there in that state for awhile and then plugged into wall...first the bottom three buttons lit up, a white screen, then a big battery showed up with with a bit of red charge, then a nokia page and then finally an att page with the words "rethink possible".....and it shuts off and starts this loop.
My batterytime is now down to half a day. I thought it may the the battery who was bad, and got my self a new, original battery. But it's the same story. I have the last software version, and yes, I'm running bluetooth, -but only half a day? I had that Voip (Gizmo or somthing) installed for a while, and I suspected that it drained the battery, but I think I managed to uninstall it.
The phone was working fine 1.5 days with moderate use .. suddenly it only lasts 6 hours ( stand by) while iam sleeping.. it had more than 70% battery and after 6 hours its empty !! how do i fix that ? without installing 100 programs to reflash the stupid phone
After I update to V22 it seems that the battery it drain much quickly and another problem is that sometimes if i close the phone and then start again sometimes it's starts,appear nokia logo and then it close ,I push again the power button and then it starts (sometimes I must try 2-3 times until it starts).
I got to say that before it doesn't happened and before update to V22 I hard reset my phone including my mass memory and memory card sow the phone was like new.
I recently received my N8 (1-1.5 weeks ago) and have been having a lot of fun with it however my biggest gripe is that the battery would require charging far too soon (once or twice a day depending on use)I was a little dumbfounded as reviews have been praising the N8s battery life. However I thought perhaps my usage was a little more extreme than the common user/reviewer.
Until the other night, before bed, my battery indicator showed roughly 50% battery life; I had turned my widgets and apps off (my bluetooth and gps were also off the only thing on was my wifi) I locked my screen, leaving the clock screensaver on, and proceeded to sleep not 4 hours later I awoke and wanted to check what time it was but my phone had shut off, the battery was drained!
This doesn't seem normal to me and I posed the question to the aforementioned blog and the replies I received also found the situation odd.I have proceeded with a test after charging my battery to full. This time I have insured everything is turned off, that is the: widgets are in offline mode; apps; wlan; gps; bluetooth; FM transmitter. I have left the clock screensaver on and am waiting to see how long the battery lasts.
Since the latest firmware update ive noticed my phone battery isnt lasting that long at all. was fully charged when i went to bed, 8 hrs later without use its a 1/4 down. now through the day at work using it everynow n again for text message im down to 1/4 left.
I recently got the 5800 xpress music and I noticed that when I have bluetooth enabled it drinks up the battery charge like crazy certanly a lot faster then my last phone a 5610 xpress music. Now I think this is because the WIFI is always on as well, I don't have need of the WIFI always being on but I can't find a way to switch it off.
Connected my 5800 up to my PC last night, with a full battery. Set it to x-fer loads of music, came back in the morning. battery dead! Im wondering if.
a. Is this normal? All of my other phones have been "charge via USB" so i guess you dont see the high drain.
b. Phones with really poor battery life.. is there some sort of software glitch causing the USB connection to stay active even though the cable is out? Might explain a few problems I have read on the boards here!
I have a 6220 Classic and recently a new indicator has appeared in the top right corner of the homescreen (alongside battery strength indicator). At the same time I'm noticing that my battery is not holding any charge, as in I have to charge it daily or more often, even when I'm not making calls and have bluetooth turned off.I can't identify the indicator in my manual but I think it might be something to do with GPS? It looks a bit like a satellite - a sort of coke can with oblong wings coming off at an angle!Interestingly I just went into Nokia Maps (as a test) and when I exited the indicator disappeared from my homescreen.Any advice gratefully received.
I have used this App for years now and just upgraded a few weeks ago to the new 3.01(0) (S60 5.0) from Sports Tracker Technologies for the N97 Mini. I have noticed a major problem with the new application which pretty much drains my N97 battery within a couple of hours from full charge, and if you like to cycle for more than 2 hours this is a real pain in the neck.
I have tested every other app, on standby, the old Nokia beta version and no problem with the battery (I even bought a new battery!). I reported the problem to the new company in Mid July (twice) and have still to even get an acknowledgement that they received my email. I also reported a more minor issue at the same time where by all screens do not show up in the selected unit of measure (e.g. if you select miles/imperial as the default) the month summary screen still shows Kms.
I have a Nokia 5800 xpressmusic mobile and its about 7 months old , I charge up the phone and the batery lasts between 6-8 hours with very little use ? the phone is just draining the power from the batery . At first I thought batery dyeing so I put another one in , charged it up and the same happened again,About a 2 weeks ago it did get wet fell in the sink and I dried it out and waited a few days befor I switched it on and it worked perfect no problems until a couple of days ago. I can put batery in and charge it switch phone on with no problems , I even took the batery out to see if the batery was dyeing on its own with no problems put it in my friends phone and it lasted as it should , so is this a software problem in the phone or is it earthing or something to cause a drain?
Since upgrading to firmware v50.0.005 my 5800xm started to run out of battery after 10-12 hours. After some tests, uninstalling programs, deleting all WLAN Connections etc I found out that this is caused by unwanted WLAN connections to known WLANs. How can i solve this?This happens only at home or in my office (where I use wlan) , there are no applications running and nothing is allowed to sync automatically. But after some minutes when I unlock my 5800, I can see the wlan antenna - but when I want to check the connection, it disappears.I never had battery or WLAn issues, but since upgrading to v50 when i forget to connect it to the charger overnight the battery has drained and is empty.For finding open WLAn and for easy connections I use WeFi since I own my 5800. This never caused me any problem. But I have read through the Support Discussion and some other boards on the web: There are many others that suffer from battery drain after upgrading to Firmware v50.So please check whether this may also be related to unwanted WLAN traffic on your 5800:I stayed a few days in a hotel where there was no WLAN. I tried to upgrade again to Firmware v50 again via PC and cable, not OTA again. The battery lasted for three days as before (but remeber there was no WLAn available!)As soon as I was back home, the 5800 begain to connect again in standby estimated every 10 minutes to my home WLAN. I can see this in the router´s connected devices. When I unlock the 5800 I see that WLAN is active and connected, a second later, or if I click on the icon, the connection disappears Simply bad, because when I forget my phone charger in the evening to hang on in the morning it is empty.Perhaps these guys have the same problem: /t5/Connectivity/5800-Wifi-Bug/m-p/410781 but I never ever had photo exchange, skype, fringe or else installed. I have changed nothing before or after the upgrade to v50, I have not installed new software or else.
Anyone have any good suggestions on how to quicly drain my batteries so that I can re-cycle them? I have a total of 2 batteried, and an external AC charger. I also have a charging pod, or the AC USB charger, or the PC USB charger.
I did an update using DM for MAC twice, and after each my phone remained on for a couple of hours. I then turned it off overnight and when I tried to start it up in the morning, nothing happened. No action at all. I knew the battery was charged the night before so I immediately discounted that. I eventually connected the phone to my car charger and it eventually started after a few minutes. Happened againg last night, but this time instead of re-charging it I did a battery pull. It started up after a few seconds. Has anyone else experienced this problem?
Have a replacement Storm for the past 6 weeks. Not having any problems. Running OS .75. No new apps the past several weeks. Yesterday battery drained completely in < 2 hours (went to make a call and phone was dead). Charged it half way (so I could use it again) and noticed last night after 2 hours the battery area was hot and charge went from 50% to 15% without use. Ran it for another hour and battery was no longer hot and battery percentage stayed at 15%. Checked to make sure there was nothing else running in the background other than my usual 6 apps. Keep my Storm in a holster and lock it before placing it in there. Did a battery pull and charged it completely last night. So far the past 3 hours this morning having no problems.
I don't understand what is happening with my 4 month old XPERIA RAY..I've changed the battery with the new one, switch off my phone and full charged it and when i've starded the phone the state of the battery was 96%. After 5-6 hours with data activated, no GPS, no WiFi, no Bluetooth the phones turn off (0%) Can't believe that's normal.When i've bought the XPERIA RAY, i've 2 days before my battery goes empty... And now the phone is heater than before.Is XPERIA RAY a big s**t like my first ps3?
I use my phone all the time so I charge it everynight to ensure a full battery. However I don't want to hurt the overall lifespan of the battery. How often should I let it drain completely to guarantee a good life cycle?
Previous smart phones I owned turned wifi off when the screen went dead. So essentially wifi didn't really drain any battery and wifi was easier on the battery then 3g when actively pulling down data.
So now I am on a 2gb plan (previously on unlimited) and sensitive to this I keep my wifi on all the times to use my home connection when possible.My battery however is barely getting through a full day. My wife was getting solid days but she had wifi off.Do you think that this is effecting it? I use my phone quite a bit throughout the day.
I bought a 3GS running 3.1.3 from a friend of mine. Brought it home, used jailbreakme.com to jailbreak it and Cydia. Worked fine, put my Tmobile SIM in, made calls, downloaded apps, ect. Plugged it in overnight, got up this morning and took it off the charger at 100%. Leave it sitting and 5hrs later the battery is down to 30%! Wifi, 3g, push, ect ect are all off. Someone please help, I was so excited to get this working and now the battery doesn't even last half a day with no use!
My iPhone 4S had been working great, but after upgrading to 5.1.1 OS it is draining the battery by the afternoon every day without any or very little use. I rely on my phone for business and it can't even make it through a work day! It is draining about 4 times faster than normal. I found a post referencing to 'Reset All Settings' which I tried yesterday, but it still is draining fast. I tried resetting, rebooting, shutting down all apps, but nothing helps.
my battery been draining really badly without even using it a lot during day facebook twitter etc its dead by time comes on which is 7am tilll 6pm and i got to charge it every night, i am checked to see if any apps working in the background but looks like there isnt unless its hidden somewhere running in the background, can anyone help me on this as its doing my nut in now battery draining every day is there some kind off battery app out there on the store so i can find this hidden app draining my battery down?
I live in an area w/o 3G right now, so I'm just experiencing 3G on my 9700 on a weekend getaway. My battery drains MUCH faster now, with UberTwitter being the only app I have open. Are there any tips|tricks or anything in the settings I can tweak to reduce the drain, or is this just the price of the speed boost?
I plugged in my ip4 last night a couple hours before going to bed, and noticed that it was up to 100% when I went to bed. I woke up and, still plugged in, was at 97%...?Is this normal by any means? I mean, I know my MBP which I always have plugged in will drop charge while plugged in to such %'s (97,98,99).however my ip4 has never done this before.
UPS dropped off my phone a little bit ago and I love it so far but two things struck me as odd. The first is that my battery drained fron 100% to 72% in roughly half an hour. In that time all I did with the phone was turn it on, start a few apps and ran a speed test on the 3G network.
It should not drain that fast. At this rate it will last a few hours with no usage. Is anyone else having this issue? Another strange thing is that the speed test I ran came in at 600kb down/100up. That is slower then my 3G phone (I tested it at the same time)
I purchased my 9300 in Feb 2011 and till last week , the battery charged stayed for two and a half to three days on an average. Suddenly from last Sunday, the battery is is going dead in 5 to 6 hrs time. Why is this and is there any thing I can do to stop this pls... Blue tooth, wi fi are all switched off.
