    My battery life is amazing. I don't even use Smart Actions. All I did was freeze the bloatware using Titanium Backup.

    I've got the same problem. Here are screenshots. This is coming from a fully charged battery. Something is wrong.

    I wanted to get more life out of my battery. I rooted the phone, froze the bloatware. Then I went into task manager and killed anything that was running that I did not want to. Then I let juice defender do the rest at the balanced setting. It was a very light day
    But did make calls, text family, read the epaper and check out df. I leave my phone set to LTE even though I have spotty coverage at home.

    I am still showing 100% after 15.5 hours.

    There is a collection of videos on YouTube that are Bionice specific but have enough general info to help snyone get better battery life. Search for "[Temping Guides] doid bionic battery life part 1" to get started. There are 6 parts each lasting 5-7 minutes.
    Definitely helped me!

    By power save features do you mean the Smart Actions? I have found that the "extend battery life" Smart Action drains my phone's battery faster than anything. I have one set up for work that I may have to modify a bit because it seems like it is also a bit of a battery waster.

    You obviously had juice defender disabling all connections and didn't use your phone at all for 15 hours in a dark drawer or you edited the screenshot/faked the OS some how into thinking it's been running that long on battery (I've had this happen before). Either way, neither helps battery life.

    Yeah, I meant Smart Actions. They're useless as far as battery life management is concerned. I use them now solely to make sure my phone is set to silent during class time and loud when I'm at home (except when I'm asleep). I froze bloatware and habitually disable the 4G (LTE) whenever I'm not actively using my data connection. It helped a great deal.
