    Does a 15 minute phone call really consume more power from my battery than having the screen on for over an hour?

    IMO here's how battery consumption goes, starting with the most battery-consuming feature:

    Screen

    Cellular Connection

    Wi-Fi

    Bluetooth

    Playing music with the screen off

    So basically, I highly doubt that's true.

    Then I wish I knew what is wrong with my phone. I have done just about everything and I still get crap for battery.

    My battery does really well with cell calls. It just hates when I'm using data. It eats it up.

    When I asked this question, my phone was down to 40% battery with only one 15 minute phone call, an hour of screen on and about 20 minutes of words with friends. I unplugged the phone at 11 in the morning and it was down to 40% by 6 at night :mad:
