[Q] Dialer consuming battery help
Hi, I'm going to try to keep this brief for your guys' convenience.
Every time I view my battery statistics, it shows that my "Dialer" is first ranked in battery consumption, which is indeed causing a large amount of my battery to drain.
My android fascinate was given to me after my mother swapped her phone with it, and I use it only as a mini-computer
now. Therefore, I do not need
any phone or messaging apps at all (especially ones that drain my phones battery).
I have had no experience in phone technology until yesterday, where I spent that day and today looking up how to delete the "Dialer" in total. My search had educated me in what rooting a phone is, and how especially a samsung fascinate is a difficult one to root. After many attempts, I finally rooted the phone (with superuser) with DroidStyles guide, found on this website (thanks!). And finally, I uninstalled the "phone" and "Dialer" app, but theres one problem... It gives me a constant error pop-up, which made me restore the two apps.
Yes, I have read in other sections of this forum about what happens if you uninstall "Dialer", and I even read several threads on masking the phone app using an app, or how you can switch off phone options in a motorola HTC (which is unrelated to fascinate).
I haven't found a solution on how to lower the battery use of "Dialer" yet, and was wonder if someone could help me.
Believe me, I've tried looking almost everywhere, and this is my first post I've made after two long days in learning all about a samsung fascinate.
Thanks for your time.
