Samsung Galaxy S3 - Page 41

post #401 of 2113
My battery life is pretty damn near awful on mine (Sprint S3 on Blazer ROM 1.5)... I know it's definitely my fault anyway, forgot to deplete my battery and full recharge upon receiving it... If I'm using it, playing games with my email sync on and wifi on, starting at 7:30am, It will be dead around 1pm if I listen a little bit of music in between as well... I gotta have some app in the background really messing with me, haven't found it yet -___-

Still in love with the phone, regardless of having to charge it mid day so that I can still talk to people by 8pm on the weekends rolleyes.gif

I haven't had any apps drain my battery besides Steam. That was the only one that was really noticeable.

I think it's Facebook, but I'm not 100% positive.

Haven't used it so I have no clue. Seems like that would though if its sitting in the background updating itself all day.

Depleteing your battery is bad for it anyway. YOu shouldn't let these things get to 0% battery at all as it damanges them. You should charge as often as possible.

You get, say, 1000 cycles with these batteries, one full cycle is 100% to 0%. So if you charge at 50%, it counts as half a cycle.

There's some information out there about all this.

As for your battery life it's likely it's a software problem wink.gif Before LFB (for i9330 at least) I had a pretty bad drain on idle. Now that's gone and I get pretty decent battery on idle (3-4% overnight with Wi-fi and stuff syncing).

Thanks for that! Someone on XDA was suggesting the depletion to some people and I thought to myself, well crap I've never done that on any device...

Guess I'll go back to my normal charging ways thumb.gif

as for facebook, I found the setting where it constantly updated me in the background and turned that off in a heartbeat.

Over-discharging Lithium-ion

Li-ion should never be discharged too low, and there are several safeguards to prevent this from happening. The equipment cuts off when the battery discharges to about 3.0V/cell, stopping the current flow. If the discharge continues to about 2.70V/cell or lower, the battery’s protection circuit puts the battery into a sleep mode. This renders the pack unserviceable and a recharge with most chargers is not possible. To prevent a battery from falling asleep, apply a partial charge before a long storage period.
Battery manufacturers ship batteries with a 40 percent charge. The low charge state reduces aging-related stress while allowing some self-discharge during storage. To minimize the current flow for the protection circuit before the battery is sold, advanced Li-ion packs feature a sleep mode that disables the protection circuit until activated by a brief charge or discharge. Once engaged, the battery remains operational and the on state can no longer be switched back to the standby mode.
Do not recharge lithium-ion if a cell has stayed at or below 1.5V for more than a week. Copper shunts may have formed inside the cells that can lead to a partial or total electrical short. If recharged, the cells might become unstable, causing excessive heat or showing other anomalies. Li-ion packs that have been under stress are more sensitive to mechanical abuse, such as vibration, dropping and exposure to heat

Now our phones have a lot of protections in them (like trickle charging when get to 100%) that aren't accounted for in the article but it has some useful info in there wink.gif

Also good to know about storing batteries and why having a second one is actually pointless. You are best storing themw ith 40% charge... so having a secondary battery seems pointless unless you always keep it at 40% charge :S

So I got the SGS3-specific HDTV adapter, and would like to know which processes I need to have enabled to make it work. Do I need a DLNA-compatible TV? I have a lot of processes disabled on the phone that I wasn't using at the time I disabled them.

Man you guy's and your phone lingo, I have no idea what you are all talking about thumb.gif I just got a smartphone for the first time a few weeks ago (Galaxy)

I did want to share the video quality to those who may be interested, as I filmed my Cooler Master Load' Em Up PSU Contest Entry with it, aswell as an awesome hip check in NHL12 wink.gif
