I've been going around reading these forums for a while and im honestly trying to find out if its just my Rezound that is broken or what but...

Is it normal for my rezound to be at 20% Battery life after 7 hours and 37 Minutes. Screen on time = 31 minutes. Stock Battery on 4g.

What gives? This is ridiculous... i feel like i barely use my phone and the battery is just draining and draining, and its like this with whatever GB rom i use, even a clean one with NO apps installed. I Might get an extra hour out of it if i have auto sync off completely. Its also worth mentioning that my phone can get pretty toasty, around 112f at times when being used.

I feel like i need to use my extended battery to get what other people seem to be getting on the stock battery.

Is my rezound which i purchased on ebay defective?

Thats not normal for sure. I would download better battery stats and check your partial wake locks. Also 4g drains battery alot, especially if your in a spotty area with low signal. I use 3g unless I absolutely need 4g. (Youtube, downloading, etc.) From what you've described it sounds like something is keeping your device from sleeping. With that type of screen on time you should have much more battery left.

Just posted this in another thread on this same topic, but this is a example of what I'm getting on stock battery with two hours of screen on time running Clean Rom Developer Edition.

Would it be too much to ask for people to report the following?

ROM? If on one or stock
Any overclocking or undervolting etc?
Screen on time?
Apps dominantly used on phone during screen on time?
Are you on 4G, 3G or Wifi?
What do you have set to sync? Weather, Gmail, Facebook etc.

I am on RezRom 3.3
I have Screen on in Voltage Control Set to 1.5 GHtz Max and 129 Min
I have screen off set to 129 Min and 129 Max
Right now I am at 45% with 1 Hr 15 minutes screen on time
I have been using Twitter, Facebook, XDA and playing Drop7
I have been on 4G all day.
I have 2 Gmail accounts one personal and one work, only thing set to sync on those is Mail, Contacts and Calendar.

I have done everything stated in this thread, including using titanium backup to freeze or remove un needed applications.

Cleanrom GBE 1.7.5 & Ineffabilis v1.4
No Overclocking
35 - 50 minutes
messaging, 5 minutes of playing music, 5 minutes or less phone calls, random checking time
4g When in a 4g area. wifi in most others
I have experienced this poor battery life with sync completely off and i manually sync it once or twice a day

I had very similar battery life until I ran the ruu leak. It was a difficult decision but I decided that my battery life was so crappy that it was worth the risk installing the leak. If it didn't work I was going to return the phone. Well not only did it increase my battery life hardcore. But it also made my temps decrease as well. Prior I was hitting 115 with little to no effort. And after using clean rom Dev edition and the provided kernal I usually never get above 109 even under heavy load. It is worth noting that I have 4g disabled because in my area I usually get about 1.5 MB down and that's plenty for me. But with around 2 hours 15 min screen on time and 16 hours 43 min up, on the extended battery I have 49% battery left.

Again keep in mind that prior to the leak mine was literally as bad as yours in both heat and batt life.
