Hi,
a month ago, my battery consumption was fantastic. A good example is the month_ago attachment.

Now, two weeks ago my battery consumption is horrible and can not find the explanation.
I installed a couple of applications of GPS and Maps, but are already uninstalled.

I made a test 6 hours without any use, no GPS, no BT, no WiFi, no 3G, no calls and has spent almost 50%.

BetterBattery Stats not give me any application that is consuming the battery.

Any idea how I can find out?

Model: Sony Ericsson Xperia Neo V
Rom: Legacy Xperia 10.1 CM
Android: 4.2.2

Anyone have any idea?

P.D: Sorry for my poor english...

Sign a few ideas to start your ball rolling
  • uninstall task "killers": android already does this for you
  • IF root: BootManager (XPosed Framework) : control which apps launch on power up
  • IF any app shows web ads = malware. uninstall. not only does it steal bandwidth, but also wastes battery
  • reflect on your use of "background data"
  • reflect on your frequency of checking for updates (email, social whoring, other messages)
  • consider your screen brightness settings
  • have you tinkered with 'perfomance' options via a ROOT app
  • a change in usage habits will be reflected by a change in battery longevity : this is purely rational
  • IF root: AFwall+ : track app use of your internets interfaces [wifi, mobile, bt pan, etc]
  • again: uninstall ALL adware or apps showing web ads. Or use certain root tools for ripping out the ad loading junk of existing apps. Blocking ads is not as effective as preventing apps from requesting ads per se

Other helpful Xposed Framework plug-ins
  • XPrivacy [Pro] --- or DonkeyGuard
  • UnbelovedHosts
  • xInstaller
  • Lightning Wall
  • HideBatteryLowAlert
  • Hide Battery Charged Notification

You can also post your BBS log in that thread and they will analyze it for you. The screenshots only tell part of the story. Good luck.

Try Greenify. It works very well for keeping your battery life up and not lettings apps use the Internet whenever they want.

Hi,
first of all, thanks for your replies.

Before answers all replies, more info...

In my holidays, I needed a GPS in my tablet, but dont work. So, in my phone, Iīd installed "GPS over BT". The idea was pair devices, get location gps with the phone and send over bt to the tablet.

Therefore, when using the applications, devices were being charged at once.
When holidays ends, apps are uninstalled and the problems begins.

I think that the gps and bluetooh have been set enabled, but I'm going to the settings and there are disabled.

So, now, answering to the replies:

Any new app with ads have been installed, and No have any special or rare app.

During the test of six hours, all connections are disabled (apparently). No GPS, no BT, no WIFI, no 3G.

The screen was turned out during the test.

No change of any performance option. No overclock.

3 or 4 weeks ago, all work perfect. 1 or 2 weks ago, all bad. Itīs the same usage.
I know it's my fault, when I installed or uninstalled any app...

Itīs a good point to begin. Iīll install the module and see the results..

  • Settings
  • Set custom ref.
  • More (Graphs, Raw stats, Order by...)
  • Help

Storage adware is very bad

Again: [attempting to] open interweb connections USES battery. Simply blocking connections does little for battery (but more for sacrosanct privacy)

It is not evident from your response: do you have apps showing ads?

I strongly recommend installing these XPosed modules
  • XPrivacy [Pro] --- or DonkeyGuard
  • UnbelovedHosts

The developer does not understand the verb "opt":

Quote:

INTERNET: Needed by "Raise Your Voice" program to send back only small amount of anonymous statistics data, without privacy information. You can opt-out at any time.

Instead of green (which is not rational) try this XPosed module:

http://repo.xposed.info/module/com.h...ormanceprofile

Make your specific adjustments (per app) instead of trusting, oasis feng, an impaired developer.

Is that BlueGPS?

Oh, that is suboptimal. With BlueGPS you pair a GNSS receiver to your tablet (or phone). BlueTooth uses less battery than phone GPS.

Not all phones draw more power than they use. There are several devices for sale that will help you identify this better than installed apps.

Search amazon: usb power monitor

One such is:

Which apps are used after holidays and not used during holidays?

How many of these apps show ADS? (battery wasting, data stealing, privacy damaging)
  • Angry Words (Greenified)
  • Apex Launcher
  • BatteryCalibration
  • BetterBatteryStats
  • Catlog
  • Colornote
  • DCIkonZ Theme
  • Es File Explorer (Greenified)
  • Fancy Widgets
  • Feedly (Greenified)
  • Fenix (Twitter) (Greenified)

  • WhatsApp
  • Yatse (XBMC Controller)
  • Youtube (Greenified)

Disabled how?



Quote:

This is prudent system wide. Overclock without exogenous cooling is extra foolish. Per-app CPU throttling is a different matter. Changing "nice" level per-app might help.

I can use simple English. Some people take offense. Your English is better than my any other language.
