Also it gets insanely hot when playing games, so hot that if I receive a call during a game the earpiece is scorching. Other than those things it's a great phone, I may need to try a custom rom and see if that helps atall.
That is a lot worse than my battery life(with power saving mode off) and I did nothing other than disabling all the Smart & Air features, Dial tone/touch sound/screen lock sound/haptic feedback etc, also set Widgets to not update between 10pm & 8am. Standby battery life are amazing on this phone( 1% every 2 hours). Haven't had the phone get uncomfortably hot.
I would go through the Battery page or Install Gsam battery monitor to see if you are running any app that is draining battery life quickly(Facebook comes to mind) or have trouble with wakelocks.
Did a 80% discharge on this phone last Sunday, 8hr 46min of Video playback on max brightness(dynamic mode):Edited by sherlock - 6/4/13 at 4:50pm
