In 2hrs 30min the battery has gone from 100% to 50%. I've had Skype open and have been using Dolphin Browser from the get go. Screen mode is on dynamic and brightness goes to about 1/4 of the bar. I'm gonna reboot the phone, uninstall a few apps and if things don't get better over the next few days, I'm downgrading again, haha! Before my Desire S, I had the HTC Sensation and it was as bad as this!
I prefer battery levels over the overall device, tbh. I'm actually considering sticking with the Desire and making a couple hundred quid off the Galaxy if things don't improve over the next few days. I've heard good things about the S3. My uncle's colleague recently bought it and he really likes it. Also, gsmarena claims that the S3 has over 9hrs battery life whilst running on 3G, but the site also says that the S2 has over 8hrs on 3G, but at this rate, I'm barely getting 5hrs!
My parents bought it for £165 from my dad's cousin or friend.
Do you use the original charger? I used a dodgy one earlier and my Galaxy kept crashing, then when the battery was at 60% it suddenly turned off and when I turned it on again the battery levels were at 19%! I then turned the phone off again for about 30min and battery levels had risen to 21% and so I kept it off for a while longer, until it reached 31% and got pissed off then realised that it was the charger's fault - when I took the charger out earlier, I kept getting "voltage too high" messages so I tried my Desire's charger and that was a lot better!
Yes, widgets (amongst a load of other things seem to be draining the goddamn thing pretty badly. Like, in the last 10min, my battery went from 53% to 50% and I haven't even touched the phone!
I'm getting 5hrs if I'm lucky!
Do you guys find that your keyboard stops responding and makes the phone crash? Or does this just happen to me?
I've never had so many problems with a phone before!
