Where is motocast located and how to do turn it off?These are things to keep in mind.
1. We just had a major overhaul between 2 software versions. A clean fdr with apps freshly installed back on with out their backed up settings in place, will get your phone to quit fighting itself over settings within your apps of 2 software versions, which results in the phone finally running smoothly and the lag goes away.
2. Once the software end of it has been corrected then it's time to test your battery and see how it last. Our phones batteries today don't need conditioning like older phones did. You have to train the battery in the phone to sync up with your battery meter. This is where FoxKat's expertise comes in. Read up on his battery life literature, it works.
3. If you have implemented both these steps after your upgrade to Ics and still haven't seen battery times improve, then 90% of the time it's services on apps running in the background. Constantly waking your phone up while its trying to sleep to search for updates. Learn how to turn off basic fetching services in apps or set longer refresh interval search times such as in facebook and other apps to keep your phone from waking up constantly looking for updates. The less your phone gets woke up while it's trying to sleep results in better battery life.
Now keep in mind when you do the fdr and with a fresh clean installation of your apps, your phone needs to retrain itself all over again. So better battery times right out the gate wont be instant. I noticed with mine, my battery times started showing significant improvements after about the 3rd or 4th day. By then my phone had settled in and since I finally had everything running right and set up and I was back to my normal usage of my phone, and so far it's showing rewarding on and off screen time results.
From what I gathered here,verizon,and motorola support forums, if you already know battery meter training and have already used it and do it to a schedule, fixing the software conflicts issues is of course the 1st point of attack, then exploring and turning off services and background data & setting rules for longer search interval times in apps and adjusting location services, fixing these 2 issues should come first, with a quick battery meter training cycle session to top it off, it is showing good results.
If you have never done battery meter training before, Then the order should be as I've stated above, it's showing better results with that way and method. So...
1. A clean fdr
2. Battery meter training.
3. Fix and set apps retrieval times that search for updates. Example-Facebook. In Ics if you use motocast for example, by default Ics has motocast running right off the bat and searching after a fdr. You have to go toggle it off manually in motocast itself to get it to stop searching constantly for your computer...Big battery hog.
