Okay, I have the first Droid. From November till August I was getting about 24 hours of battery use (perfect). Recently my phone has been dying very rapidly. It started it's decline to about 12 hours of battery use then dying, now it seems I'm lucky to get 12 hours out of the thing.
I've searched and searched and searched looking for answers, tips, suggestions. I've tried just about everything and nothing has worked.
Here's some tidbits about my phone:
- Using Froyo 2.2.
- Use Launcher Pro (3 home screens)
On Home Screens I use:
Beautiful Widgets, Facebook Widget, Music Widget, Pandora Widget, Google Search Widget.
I do not have an extreme amount of applications... some of the apps I have include:
ScoreCenter, Fantasy Guru, TIKL, Go! Chat, Zedge, MP3 Music Downloader, IMDB, Wikipedia.
I don't do much on the phone other then text and browse the web occasionally. I rarely talk on the phone.
I'm truly stumped... I've done all the things like turn off Wifi, Turn off GPS. I've read all the "Save Battery Life Tips" Articles and just about tried everything they've had to offer.
I recently downloaded HomeSwitcher and took all the widgets and icons off the standard Launcher program due to the fact that I use Launcher Pro.
Battery readings right now: 8h, 38m, 12s since unplugged.
Android System 10%
Phone idle 10%
Cell Standby 9%
Android OS 5%
Launcher Pro 3%
Voice Calls 3%
Handcent SMS 2%
Battery Level 30% - On pace to die right about the normal 12 hours now.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Once again, I've really tried a lot of the suggestions I've read on the internet. None of the "easy" solutions have had any effect.
