Just Registered here and hoping I can get some help. First off I'm sure many of you are tired of reading battery posts but I just can't stand it anymore. I've googled, probably read about 50 different threads on the topic and tried different things but my battery on this phone is unacceptable.
I have three regular batteries and an extended battery, multiple chargers around the house, a car charger, and a portable charger.
On average for the regular battery I feel like I get 3-4 hours out of it. For the extended maybe 5-6. Sometimes those numbers are higher but I feel like that's a fair average. And I'm not even a heavy user! I'll check facebook maybe a few times, I'll text, but that's about it, don't watch movies off my phone, play games occassionally but usually plugged in when I do. I went in to Verizon very early on to see if they'd switch the battery but the guy pretty much said battery is junk and I should play with my settings.
Here's what I've tried:
--Disabled 4G: I live in a 3G area anyway so when I'm at home it's not like it matters, the 4G speed is awesome if I'm out in town and using the phone but then I know every time I look at the phone it's going to be draining by like 1% every minute or so.
--Screen Brightness: I run it at about 25% on average, I have a toggle that will max it to 100 if I need but I'd say I only do that maybe once or twice a week for a period of about a minute.
--Launchers: I was running Go Launcher for a while but it was starting to go slow at times and I felt like that might be the battery hog. I switched to 360 launcher which I really like but I think it might be even more of a battery hog or equal, might try Zeam which is one of the simplest launchers I've found on the market and doesn't have anything fancy.
--Syncing: I've went without syncing and that does seem to help a little but I want my phone to sync with my gmail otherwise it throws me off, one minute I'm used to having emails to my phone, the next minute I'm apologizing to someone for not seeing their email for a few days.
My previous phone was an HTC Incredible and I loved it. I love the Rezound but can't stand this battery already, it's seriously ridiculous unless I can squeeze more life out of it. I literally feel like I'm on my laptop which has to be plugged in most of the time and gets about 90 minutes of usage time off the charger. When my brother rooted my incredible everything ran better including the battery life so I'm thinking that may be the way to go with the Rezound? It kills me to come on here and here people say they get 6-8 hours on the normal battery and all day on the extended I would be in heaven if I could get that right now. Any help? suggestions?
