Plugged in my earphones to test and the menu is now gone. It seems that Page Buddy was also used for other things but nothing useful in my eyes.
Great but will this service start up the next time the phone is rebooted mate?

Cheers,

Just tested it there and it didn't start up. As long as you disable it, it won't start up again till you enable it again.

If you want to enable it, it moves to the very bottom of the application list after disabling it.

Putting it on manual rather than network time seems to have sped up the time change once you turn the screen on - I've always noticed a fraction of a second of lag when the time updates on my old SGS2.

Mine dropped 25% over night and that was with killing all apps etc before going to sleep. Not sure what could be causing such a drain when it's not in use.

Dunno what apps you have running/settings on but my phone has been on for 17 hours: a 7 hour chunk of that on a poor data signal, wifi for a bit, decent signal for a bit and screen on for an hour and it's lost 34% battery - no idea how you lost 40% in half that time with no interaction?

It could be that you had your phone at wrong temperature or you're running too many apps or that you battery is faulty. Go into setting > more> battery and start looking at the stats. If they're not detailed enough there's probably an app you could get (I used to use BatteryBot) that may show more, but you'd have to run it for a few days.


I haven't really been using my phone at all today. Received one or two calls and watched an episode of Archer on Netflix, that's about it. It's been 16 hours+ since I last charged it. There's still apparently 64% remaining. Something definitely sounds amiss if you're leaving your phone idle and it's draining like that.

Wifi/4G, Air view, smart pause and data sync have been on all day.

Also, I'd highly recommend the automateIt app. You can set up customs rules for when you're phone is idle. So battery may be conserved.

I charged my phone Saturday night, didn't use the phone much on Sunday, used it all day yesterday (calls and 3G), was at 17% going to bed last night, I find the battery life great in it. I've also installed the Cerebus security app, oh my am I impressed with that, I now have a reason to root my phone so I can hide the app to stop would-be theives from disabling it.
