Default M8 with Android Revolution HD 10.2

I have some what of an odd problem with battery life and this rom. I've looked all over the net with just battery problems, and tried a few things. The most common problem I had when I was on 9.1 of this rom was my phone radio was always using around 40% of power even when wifi and data was off or just having one or the other on.

With 10.2 the battery life is much better, so was with 9.1 when I first installed it. I'm very new to this, this is my first rom, my first root.

First couple of days of installing the 9.1 AR HD my phone would be 100% through the whole night, and I'm talking 8+ hours of no use with 100%, not plugged in. Couple of weeks of use, and every night I would start losing 10%. I install the 10.2 AR HD update and again, phone lives through the night without even losing a single percent, then slowly starts losing more and more every new day when asleep.

A new install usually last me about a week and a half of battery life, then slowly starts draining faster where the battery is only good for a couple of days. What is causing such a major decrease in battery? Should I try clearing anything in the restore UI like catch and delvik, not sure what the second one was called?

I use the phone mostly for music, a phone call here and there, texting. And like I said, the very first install or update would get me about a week and a half, then starts degrading.


Thank you for your help.

Maybe a rogue app? Did you try not to install any apps after a factory reset to see if you have the same behaviour? You can also install an app like Gsam battery monitor or betterbatterystats which will tell you what is draining your battery

Yes, I have gsam, and that's where I knew the phone radio was being used at 40%, everything else looked normal. I also don't have many apps installed.

But like I said, the battery performance degrades after a week. I could start uninstalling things, don't think that would help me much as I only have less then 6-8 apps.

Try installing betterbatterystats. The partial wakelocks setting might give you more info

By the way do you have some Gsam screenshots to share? Maybe your phone signal is low and that's what's eating the battery

Seriously I wish I had your stats. There is absolutely nothing wrong with your phone. 18 % in 19 hours is fantastic. What you see as radio 21h there is the same as phone active. Basically if your phone is not on airplane mode then radio is active. Nothing to worry about

I only did the update a day ago from 9.1 to 10.2. The problem I had with 9.1 was that after a few weeks of use, the battery life started to get bad. Which is why I'm trying to figure out if there is anything I could try when or if it starts happening again.

Or to be more precise, what would cause the phone to be so good for the first week of installing the rom then start degrading. Because that just makes no sense.
