    and I have done about 4 factory resets, even tried a different Rom based on the same Kernel, it was better, but not great.

    on standby with a few text messages and a 15 minute phone call today, it lasted 5 hours...

    I don't want to S-OFF just yet to go back, I will try to see if I can get it swapped
    They already sent me a new battery (I had 3.8, they sent me a 3.7) and it made no difference at all.
    I am not sure why your phone is so odd, 3 hours of screen time is about correct with a standard battery, that is about what I get normally over a full day, but sitting in my pocket with only a few short phone calls I still have 50%+ battery life at the end of the day.

    Most people have noted that battery life is significantly IMPROVED with the global mode RUU, not gotten worse.

    I would wonder what GSAM says is using your battery, with those short standby times it appears something is holding the wakelock and keeping the phone from sleeping correctly.

    thanks for the reply

    Well, it wasn't 3 hours of screen ON time...

    it was actually about 2.5 hours total use, not Screen ON:
    30 minutes on the phone (2 calls, screen off)
    about 40 text messages total
    15 minutes of web browsing
    Screen brightness set to about 25%

    I have added to screen shots to show you something.
    This is the 2:30 hours life... it points most of the power went to the screen.

    Another thing I forgot to add was that on Standby, AND plugged in to the computer for charge, IT STILL drains faster than what it is charging from the USB Port on the computer...

    ~~~~~~~~~~
    The first 2 are repeated by accident... that was 100% - 14% in 2:30 hours, and 5 minutes after it died
    the chart from the 12, if you see the battery icon, that was on standby while plugged in to the computer charging and it was still draining..
    the final chart for today, was standby without any charge, at 7am it was 100% and by like 12:45pm it was dead completely.

    ok, the phone gets hot with MINIMAL use, with like 5 text messages it goes to like 120 F

    ~~~~
    What is GSAM ??

    GSAM is GSam Battery Monitor, it does a pretty good job of breaking down what is REALLY using your battery and helps to catch those culprit apps that are holding the wakelock or something and draining the battery.

    I suspect something more going on behind the scenes, with a decent ROM (like the global RUU) and a good battery, your phone should still charge even if the screen is on and all radios are active, not discharge. Does it charge better with the factory charger?

    I have a few suggestions: Factory Reset, reflash the RUU twice, and replace the battery, in that order, not all at once and try each step for a while without reinstalling any non-essential apps too. And do not restore apps from a backup, that can cause you more headaches and then by just reinstalling and setting up manually.

    Something is definitely not right, the global RUU is very stable and relatively easy on battery compared to most stock Rezound ROMs, time to drill down and figure out what's wrong because I doubt the ROM is at fault here, unless the flash didn't take properly.

    Yes, with AC charger (original or non original) it charges very well and fast... something is def wrong, can you believe that after my last post, I left work at 4:30 and battery was fully charged... I rebooted the phone and only used it to receive 2 text messages, and send 2 text messages. the temp went up to 115 degrees, and by 6PM, the phone died at while the battery was at 2%

    1 and a half hour of fully standby
    ok, I'll reflash RUU twice like suggested...

    do I do factory reset even though Im flashing RUU?

    Just to clear up any confusion, I used the RUU to revert back to stock GB without doing S-Off no problem. I was unlocked and rooted, and after relocking used this RUU to unroot. Returned to Verizon and haven't heard anything since.

    Not sure if this is what you referring to Tha...

    Charging from a PC will be MUCH slower than charging from the adapter, that part is normal.

    Something is chewing up battery, did you install or change anything after installing the RUU (it should have done a factory default in the process)?

    Did you install GSam Battery Monitor to see what was using the battery? With that kind of standby drain the culprit app should stand out like a sore thumb, In GSam select App Usage, then change the drop down to display "View Time Held Awake" to see what is keeping the from sleeping.

    Think it is possible you have a bad battery?

    Yeah thanks, that's actually what i did and backfired lol however I went to the latest Stock RUU which is the global, and without S-OFF I cannot go to an older one but I think Im back up and running.

    Yeah I know that, but I dont think the phone being on idle should drain faster than what the USB Port charges it... either way, damn, I paid for an app that i thought did what GSAM does, GSAM is GREATTTTT Thanks for the recommendation...

    I should have installed it just to know what was going on, but I had a long day today and I didnt want to be without a phone, so last night I wiped the CRAP out of everything, even removed SD card (though irrelevant) and I didn't use the RUU, I loaded RUU_ICS_Global_Plus_4.03.605.2_v.1.2_odexed
    and check this out
    not the best but amazing compared to how it was before... and by the way, remember I had VZW send me a new battery, but it was the same with either one



    Thanks again for all the tips. I'll be adding apps back little by little.

    That actually seems semi-normal, perhaps a little low, but it is depending on signal strength (can make a HUGE difference) and app usage, you can tap into each of the categories and see what's up, for example, tap into Phone Radio to see how good your signal reception is, or pop into Screen and see how much power the screen takes on what settings, etc. I am typically in areas of excellent signal strength and I use a Task Manager to keep stale tasks closed, and I get about 2-3 hours screen time and 20-22 hours of life on a standard battery. Although if I am working in area with poor signal, the battery doesn't make it through the day at times.

    Might want to consider an extended battery, or a second standard battery to carry around.
