    The battery on my D3 is dying a faster than it should. After a little digging I found that android.process.media is eating up CPU time for some reason. I tried clearing data from the Media Storage program but this only helps until I reboot the phone. Any suggestions on how to fix this?

    The problem seems to be gone now after I have moved everything from the SD card to internal storage. For a short time after booting the process will consume a lot of cpu time but it falls off after a minute or two.
    I know that there was a problem before but it is possible that I simply had too much media (pictures, videos, and music) on the SD card and it was taking the process more time than normal to index it all.

    Why not just let it run the index and then see if it settles down?

    So there was a problem but after clearing the data for android.process.media the problem is gone. Battery life is much improved and most things are working great now.
