[Q] Note 2 Battery Life Really Weird?
I have myself a rooted Note 2 with Wind Mobile. This is the weird part. When I'm at home/not in the downtown core, the battery life is amazing. Keeping in mind that my signal at home is horrible. I average 1-2 bars. If I'm absolutely not using the phone it will drop about 1% an hour. If I'm using it, maybe around 2-3% an hour. Which I am not complaining about, I am very satisfied with these numbers. However this is only in the city I live in. On weekdays when I have to commute to school, my signal is amazing, Always 4 bars. I turn off wifi, and yet I realize that if I don't use the phone, my one hour commute has consumed 5 percent of my battery, doing absolutely nothing. I have noticed that the phone is hot as I take it out of my pocket. I have wake lock detector and it says that my phone has been in deep sleep for only around 6 percent. But when I look at the apps there is nothing that is eye popping. I have greenify to already kill all those apps that eat my battery, facebook etc. So I don't understand why the battery dies so much faster if I go downtown as oppose to staying in my city. Wind doesn't even have LTE so I know that's not the issue. I've had my battery last me 2 days before with mild usage at home. If I go downtown it'll last me maximum 12 hours. Whats keeping my phone awake as I leave the city??!!
Thanks for any help
