I have a Droid 2 with the extended life battery. I'm not as smart as many of you and haven't done anything fancy with my Droid, and for the most part, I don't have any issues with it.
Until recently... On Monday, I unplugged it from the charger at 7:30 a.m. and by 10:30 a.m., it had 5% battery left, was running painfully SLOWLY, and was very hot! I sent probably 5 text messages in those 3 hours, and nothing else.
I charged my Droid back to a full charge and it still drained the battery super fast, ran slowly, and got really hot, so I powered it off and turned it back on. Then it was back to normal.
Until today... I browsed the web for a few minutes at lunch. During those 5 minutes, it started running super-slow, the battery went from 50% to 30% in a matter of minutes, and the top rear part of the phone got really hot. Once again, I turned it off, then back on and now it's fine and consuming battery at a regular pace.
Other things that I've seen mentioned in discussions similar to this that I think bear mentioning: GPS is off, display is quite dim and only for 30 seconds. I use Spare Parts, and it looks like what's consumes the battery the most is "Motorola Services". Ironically, when I looked at what was running during the time when it got hot and slowed down, Motorola Services had just started.
Ummm, what do Motorola Services do? And is it normal for them to make my Droid behave in this manner? Could it possibly be something wrong with my Droid? (Somehow I suspect the problem is me, but I've learned quite a lot on here, so I hope that it's not). Is there ANYTHING I can do to solve this problem?
