Shockingly bad battery life?
I took the phone of the charger at 7am this morning, it had the green LED on and said 100% so it was charged. I sat it on the window cill and never looked at it, Went out at 11am and checked the phone at 11.30 it said 4% and had a critically low warning. I said this can't be right, rebooted the phone thinking battery readings must be wrong, it restarted at 2% and then turned off.
Now what the hell could of caused this, I am using an Anker battery less than a month old. I have noticed in the past if I leave an app open such as a twitter client and lock the phone without closing the app it doesn't sleep like it should and eats battery, and this is what I did this AM, checked twitter, locked the phone took it of the charger and thought no more about it.
So the question is why when I lock the phone do apps not sleep like they should? Auto sync is off etc, and secondly when I connect this phone to a charger how exactly do I find what killed my battery the last time?
I should add although this is an exteme example without putting my phone in airplane mode half the day I will not make it through the day which is pretty dire for a phone.
