Facebook is draining my battery
Thursday 03rd of May 2012
Hello, I fully charged my phone's battery yesterday (it reached 100%), then I turned off WiFi and my data plan (ie, 3G was off). Basically the phone could only receive normal voice calls and SMS. I was going to sleep, so I put it on silent and left it. No one touched it, no calls were received and no SMS either. The phone was basically idle for about 8 hours. I woke up late today because for some reason, the battery was completely drained during the night. The alarm didn't go off. When I charged it, I went to the battery settings and saw that facebook used 65% of the battery. How can that be possible if no one touched my phone. there was no internet connection for it to use facebook in the first place ! What's going on here, something is very wrong. How can I stop facebook from draining my battery's phone? Why is it doing this in the first place? The refresh rate is set to 'never' and notification settings are set to 'inactive'. EDIT: just noticed there is a 'Google Galaxy Nexus' forum. My nexus is GSM so it may better fit in that forum, sorry for the mistake.
What is draining my battery?
Thursday 02nd of August 2012
Nothing but problems ever since the ICS "upgrade" Now my battery seems to drain for no apparent reason fairly rapidly. I have background data turned off the only way you seem to be able to via ICS. (Into Data usage then set limit then restrict background data.), but my phone eats the battery like there is no tomorrow now & it sits on my desk all day hardly being used. No, I have not added any new apps or programs. I am doing the same things I have always done. Anyone else have this problem?
Can I see what is draining my battery?
Wednesday 25th of May 2011
Over the weekend I noticed that my battery life took a sudden and dramatic turn for the worse. After the OTA I could go all day with light web surfing and 4G and still be at 40%-50% by the time I got home. Now suddenly, if I take the phone off the charger I am seeing a 15%-20% drop inside of an hour.There have been quite a few widgets/apps updated recently so I suspect one of them, but how to tell?I have a Widgetsoid indicator for my battery and tapping it only tells me in general what is using the power, I'd like to know specifically.Should I get something like JuiceDefender or is there something built into the phone that can tell me what I need to know?Thanks

How do you tell what is draining the battery the most?
Friday 22nd of January 2010
I have the application SpareParts. However, for usage it shows the application...but just because I use one application longer than another doesn't mean that's what's draining the battery (ie - using the video player for one hour is most likely going to drain more battery than using GMail for two hours).And then under battery usage, it doesn't break it down by application...But on the market I see people saying "50% of my usage was from this app" etc etc.
maps draining my battery
Wednesday 14th of August 2013
Can anyone say me what to do if maps are draining my battery? Its using 40% of the battery. I usually "force stop" the app. Any other ideas?P.s. gps is off, but google locations is ALWAYS on. Maps are draining my battery only after using navigationsystem. Posted from my Nexus 4

What is draining my Verizon S4's battery so fast?
Sunday 19th of April 2015
So i recently got a new S4 and I'm having issues with the battery life. I'm only getting 7-8 hours of life on a single charge with moderate use. Right now it's on 90% with 32 minutes of use. The only thing i noticed that's weird is sometimed android OS uses more battery than my screen and my phone heats up below the camera when i have my data on. Also GSam battery monitor is saying my battery is going up to around 96°F but this doesn't sound warm enough to cause issues. Anyone have any clue what could be going on? Thanks
