For me battery drained as usual, 3.5%-5/ while screen off and phone awake all time, mediaserver wakelock. Means no deep sleep while music playing and screen off.

Running Spotify or Doggcatcher with screen off shows me 300mhz constant use. No deep sleep. With 3G, no wifi, all sync on, etc., it doesn't use more than 5-6% per hour, though, so it's not a big deal to me.

How and when are these jokers gonna fix this problem now?? Is it even possible to fix it through software? Did no one do any testing before releasing this piece of crap?

Default Try Noozoide Eizo-Rewire Pro

At the suggestion of another, I tried the free Eizo app listed above. It has many sound processor settings that you can apply separately to Line Out, Internal Speaker or Bluetooth. I love it. It also eliminates any distortion at high volumes with the proper settings. My settings for line out:
Deliver balanced, natural sound (processor enabled).
Digital Presets (audiophile)
Volume Enhancer Engine (checked...effect strength "strong")
Increase monitor size (checked only when plugged into powered speakers)
Create VSUR (virtual surround) (checked...effect.."studio II")

I think its a hardware issue. G2 has the similar issue like the article says. They can mask it like the G2 but it will be there i think.

But this issue is only when using the top 3 volume levels. I think the one notch below these provides great volume and the phone performs great then.

Is there any fix for the issues reported by Anandtech yet, or any reply from Google / LG?
