Very good, Brian. Yes, the phones do measure in 10% increments. The battery stats are cleared every time you put the phone on charge. I learned this with wakelock, all the important stats I wanted to see were gone when I put the phone on charge and that is how it works. I have been in consumer electronics repair all of my life. Lithium Ion batteries are very good, last a long time, do not get the memory effect, but they do die. And like Brian said, they can drop huge chunks of charge when they do.
The reason I suggested Battery Doctor and WakeLock is because you would get some stats as to what was using power and when. You get to see the discharge cycle and either find the culprit or identify a battery on it's way out.
Brian is very good at problem solving and he is good at explaining it. So far as staying on top of things in the thread, well, that is a shared responsibility and good members take turns covering the group. When I am not available, Brian will step up. When others have obscure problems like APN issues, you will see chinkster or my2¢ jump in to help as they have a lot of experience with issues like this that I have never seen. It is a coop group where we all take care of each others needs and you can be a part of it too if you want. If you see someone with an issue that you are familiar with, step up and give some advice. This takes the load off other senior members to help others. We have a good, working thread here.
Brian, you know your emoticons from TapaTalk do not work in the thread on a PC? I see [emoji20] instead of the actual emoticon itself. You can try some of the basic emoticons by text if you want such as a a colon followed by an open parenthesis to show a smile. It works and all the rest have these same text foundations. So the smilie with text only characters looks like this:
A thumbs up is a "colon, good, colon" to create like this:
You get the idea. Thanks for helping out Brian. This is an excellent way to show insanespecialist exactly how this thread and the cooperation between members really works. You have done an excellent job, Bri. Thanks buddy!
Hmmm. "JakeDHS07 and Ohmster's CyanogenMod Q&A Thread
" doesn't sound possible anymore. But when people like you and you yourself appear to help out those new guys with questions, well maybe we can keep Shaun's legend alive that way. What a glorious tribute that would be. You really rock, Mr. Hughes. Did you know that?
