Battery Low Brand new phone issues. Help please.

Good Morning,

I have just bought a brand new LG g2 32 GB with android 4.2.2 software version D80210f-AME-XX

Unfortunately the phone gets hot and battery last very little.

The reseller is refusing to support me and asked me to take it into an LG repair center with all sort of excuses

the reseller is Offerbank can safely say to avoid this online shop.

I have installed Gsam battery monitor and most of the battery is used by the Android OS Kernel.

I have attached a screenshot of Gsam.

Please can someone help me fixing this since I believe is an OS issue?

Thank you all.

did you put a big chunk of music, vids or photos on there?

if so goto settings/accounts/google and uncheck some sync settings

Thak you for assisting me meangreenie, unfortuantely not, the phone is close to stock as possible, no music or pictures have been stored in the phone aprt the one I have taken in the lst few days.

I have checked the sync and all I can see is whatsapp, Skype and mail but theis behaviour is present even after restoring the phone to factory settings... which is the first step I have taken

Thank you again.

Check your phone for wake locks

1. Try Wakelock Detector - This app Detects wake locks and you can then use greenify to hibernate the app

2. Try Greenify - This app hibernates apps so they don't use so much battery

3. Try Titanium Backup - Basically if you find an app that is eating up a lot of stuff but can't greenify it or its just not working or you feel that its destroying battery freeze it with Titanium Backup - Be careful not to freeze apps that your system depends on

4. Try a smaller launcher

5. Don't use your phone for heavy usage


Thanks

Hi jcbjoe,

Thank you for your advice, I will try the above tools but is sad that I have a brand new phone and have to fix it myself with very little or no help from the reseller.

Thank you.
