    RMHD battery life getting worse

    Is this a common problem with this device? Suddenly, battery is dead after 5 hours of normal use, which used to take 20 hours. I have had it for a year. Should I ask for a replacement phone?

    Sounds like a rogue app to me. Download a battery/app monitor such as GSam battery monitor and see if anything abnormal shows up.

    Mine is still great after a year. I am with the above poster that you have a bad app sucking it dry.

    Tried the Gsam app and unless my display is drawing more current than it used to, it must be the battery. 5 hours to 15% is not what it was just last week. Thinking about an upgrade, anyway. The battery life is the only reason I have this phone. Now that is gone, as well.

    thanks for all the help guys. It looks like the media scanner is running all the time . I am still trying to find out why it is doing this. Any ideas? this is a new problem that hasn't happened before.

    I'm having the same problem. Seemingly overnight my battery won't make it 8 hours even with minimal use. Google Play services is constantly running and using 50-70%of the battery. When I look at running apps it is open three times. I can force stop them but they come right back. Restarting the phone stops it, but only temporarily. Phone has major lag while this is going on too. May try a factory reset.

    I ran into the same problem last fall. Never could figure out which specific app went haywire, but FDR got me back to normal ops again.
