Re: Battery life

Silly question: have you switched your phone off since first starting it when you got it? Some people never switch off their phone (like me).

Some people have reported that switching off and restarting can fix a few minor bugs.

Re: Battery life

Yes I switch off every night and have charged every night as battery is pretty low.  Seems this morning that maybe the indication was just messed up after the first charge as it is back to showing 100% now and I did not charge again

Re: Battery life

Here is what I got yesterday:

 

Full charge at 11am.

 

WIFI connected, Bluetooth on (connected to PB)

 

Several BBMs, Text msgs, Emails etc.

No phone calls

 

Played for about an hour with hotspot which drains power pretty good.

 

Downloaded an app.

 

Briefly left WIFI and onto 4G network (30 minutes). Activated maps during this for about 5 min.

 

Set to night mode at about 10pm

 

Up at about 6am

 

Left WIFI connection, onto LTE network

Bluetooth connected to car

 

several messages (BBM,txt, email)

 

Battery showed 0% at about 10am (phone still running, but I shut it off)

 

So about 23 hours.

Re: Battery life

Ok so if you drag down from the top and go into settings > network connections - can you tell me what if says next to each of the connections please. 

 

I have another test for you for later when your phone is fully charged.
