Must be something wrong with my battery... I shouldn't be losing 20% every 2 hours in standby, it's crazy. I would love to get the extended battery but for some reason I don't want to get rid of my Sprint back plate.

 

Currently I have 83% and my screen hasn't be on since I charged it about two hours ago..

Well, I am having difficulties uploading pictures, but I found this video on how to mod your existing case to work with the extended battery.

My signal is -76 dBm 4 asu / EvDo-rev.A:8.

 

I empty my multi-tasking screen and I have even used apps like Advanced Task Killer to free up memory so nothing is being used. My phone just loses battery massively in idle mode.

 

I am currently considering buying the extended battery, considering college starts very soon, I need it.

What are the battery stats. 20% in 2 hours on idle is not even close to normal

Are you on stock unrooted?

Stock and unrooted, I dream of battery life like that.

 

I was in the car on my way to Nashville I used my phone on and off and had to recharge about 6 times that day. (Car Charger)

 

Another weird fact, I can put my phone on the charger for about 20 minutes and gain 30%. Not sure if that is normal..

I highly doubt it's reading it wrong.

Yeah, it seems to charge really quickly at first when the battery is dead. Have you tried a factory reset?

I've done so many factory resets in my life, and they have never done anything. If you mention a factory reset to a person who owned a G2X you would get the same response... lol.

 

This is older but it was around the 2 hour mark the other day. It shows 81 on charger...

Well, I would say that the problem lies in corrupted firmware, an app or apps that are not allowing the processor to idle, bad battery, or hardware problems. If you reset the firmware, and observe the battery life when it is not running apps, it can eliminate software issues if the battery life is the same or similar.

I've already looked into resetting it, however I keep saying that the previous times I've never been successful. I also keep holding off saying... oh Jelly Bean will be out soon anyways...

Well, good luck to you then...

 

Actually, this battery problem occured when I bought the phone and I reset it the very next day to no avail. The only choice is to go to Sprint and ask for a new Battery or wait for Jelly Bean or custom rom it. My last experience at Sprint for a battery was a simple "Just reset your firmware".

 

Well anyways thanks for your help

I had some major battery life issues with my og evo a couple yeas ago and it turned out the battery was bad after they tested it. Sprint can test the battery to make sure there aren't any weird anomalies going with it and if there is then they will give you a new one.

    • Yet another "Carrier" move: T-Mobile users have only now discovered sneaky change made in May
    • Went to Hurricane Harbor again this past weekend, this time testing Verizon and T-Mobile. In my testing, Verizon is now the fastest carrier, at least on the Hurricane Harbor sector. Despite it being pretty overcast on Saturday with temperatures in the mid-80's the park was at full capacity.  Verizon had 160MHz of n77 and T-Mobile now has 160MHz of n41. On LTE I was seeing speeds in the range of 50-100Mbps while T-Mobile's LTE on was completely swamped, barely crossing 3Mbps. While both carriers only have a single high capacity sector (facing Great Adventure, Verizon benefits from having CBRS deployed on all sectors. This is an extra 60-100MHz of capacity that T-Mobile doesn't have. Maybe when T-Mobile gets around to deploying their C-band we'll see a boost in speeds again to be more competitive with Verizon. On the 5G side of things, T-Mobile's speeds were just over half that of Verizon.  That said, neither carrier was slow and I had zero issue using Xbox Cloud Gaming on T-Mobile despite their weaker upload speeds and higher ping.  
    • I think the newer ones have signal bars on them. I took a photo of one in Red Hook a month or two ago that had the same design.
    • Well well, looks like we found one of the two Link5G towers that might actually have 5G. Notice anything different? This one has the same signal bars icon that the pole mounted 5G oDAS units have. It’s in Chinatown at East Broadway and Forsyth St. It’s impossible to tell what carrier it is, though.
