Default [Q] Wrong stats on Bluetooth activity

Hello, i'm using betterbatterystats to check my battery life.

Everything is OK but i have a strange behaviour.

The App says that my bluetooth is always ON



but my Bluetooth is always OFF :



and i double checked in Parameters, and even restarted my phone, still same problem ....

Then today i checked my batterys stats and i get this :



My log is 19h10m5s long, and i have 2% of Bluetooth time.
But when i look at bluetooth time it says also 19h10m5s
so it should be 100 %, shouldn't it ?



Anybody also experiencing these strange Bluetooth stats ?

My Bluetooth is ON or OFF ?

Thanks.

battery stats doesn't really work, looking about the forums you see if you put wifi on all the time it says you have No or unknown signal for the same time as wifi was on.

you can look at your own screen shot for this one

seems it doesn't report as it should on the HOX

Hi, it is quite sure that betterbatterystats doesn't work but it's the system logs which is in fault not the app itself.

Even the stock app shows strange values on Bluetooth and wifi as you mentioned ...

In the case of the One X it is very useful to read those stats, but if they are totally wrong, how can we do a correct analysis of battery drain ...



By chance it is rarely bluetooth or wifi that drains the battery.

19+ hours on battery with 65% left, and you call that a drain?

Can you disable widget locker and associated power widgets in you home screens and figure out?
I would imagine some kind of interaction comes into the equation with these 3rd party programs.
Bonne chance.

Hello, thanks, it is a good idea ...

I removed the power widget on the home page and disabled widget locker.

I restarted my phone. Weirdly i had to insist to restart the phone.

When pushing power button, after 3 seconds, the lower buttons were blinking
but it didn't start, and then keeping power button 3 ou 5 seconds longer the phone restarted .

That is not the first time i noticed that the phone doesn't start or stop normally ...

At restart, i didn't see 100 % "bluetooth on" in betterbatterystats.
It looks like problem is solved ...

I will let the phone like that for a moment and put again the power widget on home page to see if i get the error back.

And then activate back widget locker.

Merci.

I activated the bluetooth for some minutes and turned it off.

Now i see on betterbatterystats that it is still ON in stats.

I refresh and the time "bluetooth on" is increasing.

I will wait a moment to see if bluetooth appears on "stock" battery stats.

It looks like a android system issue with bluetooth stats

If you feel you have found a bug in BBS I would be glad to help you clarifying what is wrong (or fix what has to be fixed). But please take the discussion to the right thread.
