    Is there any way that i can go in and see what programs are constantly connecting to the internet? I took my phone off the charger at 6:30 this morning and am already at a half battery. Can someone walk me through the .215 so i can try that and see if that helps me. I am getting desperate. I had two extended batteries for my thunderbolt so i never had to worry now i feel like i do constantly.

    Can you screenshot your battery screen and screen time for us? (hold power and volume down buttons until you hear the shutter sound)

    If you barely have any use out of it your battery is defective.

    If you have significant use smart actions and some setting changes could probably fix your issue.

    Gsam battery monitor will probably give you the best information on which app is using the battery.

    If you have done the above steps, other things you can do are to have anything that auto checks/auto updates set to longer intervals:

    *Email accounts set to check for email every 4 hours. It will automatically pull your email when you open it anyway.

    *Facebook, twitter, etc do the same.

    *Play store go into settings and make sure auto update is not checked. Updating a bunch of apps at random times can kill your battery.

    *go into the phone settings, Accounts and sync and turn it off. You can get a toggle switch from play store to toggle it to sync periodically. I use widgetsoid but there are lots.

    *go through the previous posts and make sure you have done those things (except FDR and .215).

    When you get home and have at least a 50% charge you can install the 215. Go to this thread: http://www.droidforums.net/forum/droid-razr-support/217843-mattyps-215-leak-classroom.html and follow course 1 steps. It is pretty easy.

    You have "media" using almost half of your battery. Also, as shown by the very thin blue line below your hours/minutes graph, you have something constantly running. I'm not exactly sure how to turn off the "media" because I'm not sure which media it is. I can bet that once you figure it out, your battery life will increase a lot.

    Try doing this to reset your cache:

    1. Power down the phone
    2. Press and hold down power and both volume buttons
    3. A menu will pop up. Use volume down to highlight Recovery.
    4. Press volume up to select Revovery
    5. You will see an android on it's back with a red triangle
    6. New menu will pop up.
    7. Use volume down to highlight "Wipe Partition Cache"
    8. Press power button to select
    9. After complete, use volume down/up button to highlight "Reboot"
    10. Press power button to select

    The wording may be a little different on the menus, but these are the steps.

    You should be able to press on Media from there and do a force stop (to save what battery you have left for the day). I had an issue with this as well. I had a bad app. I wasn't sure which one it was. I did a FDR and then loaded back in the apps that I really wanted to keep and haven't had an issue since.

    Try this.

    Go to apps and look for "My Gallery". tap on it then tap the menu button on the bottom left and choose settings. In the settings menu uncheck "display friends activities". That setting, when checked downloads pictures from facebook and if you have friends that like to upload a lot of pictures, it will be constantly downloading them to your gallery.

    Also, in the screenshot you posted above, you can click on the "media" icon and then tap on "force close" to shut it down. Chances are though it will reactivate.

    Other things that may be using that app are music streaming apps.

    Just some thoughts.

    Cleave and Xfactor are both correct. Media should not be that high. Something is still running in the background where your phone is never resting. Gsam would probably tell you exactly what that is but don't do that now (because it will use battery to download and install). Follow Cleaves suggestions because it will stop whatever is running. Xfactors will also work but it may start back up again and like Xfactor mentioned an fdr along with the battery saving suggestions, when you have the time, will solve all your issues.

    The other thing I noticed is that your 4g looks weak. 4g will also drain alot of battery. For now, use your toggle switch to turn off the data/4g and only turn it on when you really need it.

    ****UPDATE**** I went ahead and downloaded the gsam app and immediately was able to force close the media app. I completely charged it and took it off the charger at approx. 4pm and still have 82% remaining right now (currently 9pm). I also started the battery saver. I will try this for the next couple of days and let you all know how it goes. Thanks for all of the input. I may still need some help later with the .215 but will see how this does for now. Thanks again.

    Ok so here is another update. The last two days have been great with my battery. This morning i pulled my phone off the charger and was at 81% by 8:30am i went in and again had media running. When i go into it it says download 4.0.4-37 could this be a hardware update? I force stopped it again but if its my update should i let it go and charge it while its doing its thing?
