Thread: Battery drain - Galaxy S

  1. #1

    Default Battery drain - Galaxy S

    This past week my battery hasn't lasted past 3pm. Been running 2.3.3 for over a month now with no problems. No heavy phone calls. Wifi / GPS / Bluetooth is off. Screen on 1% brightness. I've always managed to reach 10pm each night with 10% left.
    Has anyone else experienced this?

    Might be a rogue app that's causing this.

    Check your battery settings to see what's been draining it.

    I know I struggle with battery life, but never that bad.

    N00b question... how do I check which version of Android I am running on my SGS?

    I refer you to this page. I've had massive battery drain issues while using 2.3.3 (Darky 10.1)

    Thank you. Perhaps it is time to flash again. Was hoping of going through one month without flashing.

    Well like I said in the other thread, if you already have Darky 10.1 then just flash through CWM Dark Core, no mess no fuss.

    Common issue on 2.3.3, especially with Darky. Sitting at 58% right now with hardly any usage. By 10pm it'll be empty.

    The best solution (after flashing to 2.3.4) is to simply reboot, this resets the suspend process that causes this.
