Looks like my earlier post didn't work or something, so here it is again. I've been having the issue with the dialer using a seemingly abnormal amount of power. I did a quick test. Yesterday I went all day without making or receiving any calls. I used the phone lightly otherwise: GPS for a couple minutes, texting, posting a couple pics to Evernote, etc. The dialer never showed up under battery usage. Today I made a five second call right away in the morning. "dialer" quickly showed up as using 2% battery. Without doing anything with the phone, the dialer continued to use a larger and larger percentage of the battery, maxing out at 17%. When I used the phone for something else, the apps started to catch up in the battery % list, but as soon as I was done with them, the dialer started going up in % again. My problem isn't as bad as some I've heard of though. My battery went from 100% to 53% in 9.5 hours yesterday. Today it took around 7 hours to drain that far. One day isn't a great sample, but it looks like there is an actual effect on overall battery life. I'm losing a few hours by the time the day is done.
I'll do more testing, but I was wondering if any of you TB users have had, and corrected this problem. Maybe with a third party dialer app, or fast reboot type app. Are there a lot of TB users with this problem?
I didn't try a factory reset because I've read other places that for other phones it didn't work. Of course it's possible that it will work for me, so I may go for it. I did try turning off dialing assist, pocket mode, flip for speaker, and quiet on pick up. I am stock GB. I'm not sure if this started with GB or not. I just noticed it three days ago.
