I'm trying this today. I unfroze everything and turned location on.

After I updated and did a factory reset this phone has been nothing but a dream. Good luck

How was your day of battery yesterday? Any improvement?

Figured I would post this, hadn't seen anyone else talk about the ANT services. I froze them with no problem yet, going to see if this increases my battery life for a day or two.
Hey, did disabling antService improve you android system battery drain?

Not much difference for me. The 3% left is with everything frozen, the 11% left is with everything unfrozen.
I'm sure I could have squeezed out a little more at 11%, but I was tired and ready for bed.

Hey, that's still good news. Hat means we can use the phone to the max without worrying about battery. Do you recall the difference in screen on time? Also, what exactly did you keep on? Did you enable high accuracy location? Bluetooth? Google now? Thanks

I think I used the screen a bit more with everything unfrozen than I did with everything frozen. I usually have Bluetooth, Location, and WiFi on all the time. Normally I stream Spotify for 2-3 hours a day. Google Now is always on as well. I have my Google,Yahoo, Facebook, and twitter accounts syncing frequently.

Depending on calls for work, I might use the GPS for 30 minutes. Though I don't think I used it in either of those tests.

OK. I thought it was going to be a more comprehensive "turning off" like, location, bluetooth, google now- all off, along with some frozen apps.

Thats what I have done right now, and still have huge android system drain.

It is good though that I have all of these things running and getting a full days worth of use. I wonder what the results would be with nothing syncing, using data, etc. I imagine you could get at least 24 hours with juice to spare.

What i usually do when transferring large files or a lot of files is pop my micro sd card out and put it in my standard sd card adapter. put that directly into my sd card slot on my laptop. transferred 18 gb in 15 minutes.
