    Running unrooted and not using any live wallpapers but it seems that if I have a brighter paper up, it really drains the battery. Anyone else have this issue?

    The brighter the display affects the battery more than running a live wall paper, live wallpaper does not use that much, but anything brighter than 25% seems to drain

    I have the brightness at less than 25%. Any time that I put a more vibrant paper up the battery starts draining quickly. I have the extended battery also.
