+1 to bahkata. What is the point of having this greatest phone ever if you just disable all the functionality? I think it is ok if I have to recharge every night, that is not a biggie for me. The problem is that even when idling this phone is killing the battery before the noon. And that is what we have to try to figure out here because it is not normal behavious.

The functions i disabled are functions i will not use. The only thing i might ever use is the WIFI sharing.
An update since this morning. So 18 hours on my phone is sitting at 92%.
  • tested bluetooth with car audio to see if it works after freezing bt. phone connected to car audio then i disabled it
  • 1 x 5min call
  • read 1 sms
  • sent 1 sms
  • checked battery usage settings twice throughout the day
  • checked time about 15 times (on lockscreen then locked phone)
  • checked facebook for 1 min

I didnt use much of the phone today but compared to stock KE7 and first time round of flashing to LitePRO 1.4 KF1, my phone would have been about 45-50% by this time.

The guys from the EVO forum have found the solution to their similar problem with high Android OS drain.
http://www.xda-developers.com/androi...e-fix-for-evo/

Seems to be a complicated solution... We should find the underlying cause and not just freeze all apps and stop using the phone at all so it doesn't drain the battery!!!

If the process is related to the gyro.and appears in the stock browser, then I am about 90% certain it is related to the rotate the device to,zoom in out,etc. I have done alot of work on an iphone app that used its gyro, and it really eats battery.

Each has a different usage. Maybe He turn off those apps cause he think it unnecessary to him. But the problem is issue Android OS drainning battery is not necessary and beneficial, unreasonable, so we must find ways to fix it .

Anyways I found out that the process 325-k3g is maybe related to the gyroscope sensor as its called k3g. Which means it might be triggered through motions, hardware accelaration or whatnot.

All people suffering from android os bug, do u have motion menu activated?

-1 for thinking other people should have priorities that match your personal preference.

Disabling a crapload of always-on battery and connectivity suckers does not turn your smartphone into a nokia 3310. It makes for a good joke, but its completely false. Constant updating of everything is mainly just good for advertisers and total FB addicts, or people that compulsively check email every 30 seconds.

Different people use their phones differently.

I make little use of all the background stuff that comes pre-installed, I don't even talk on the phone much. I use other software that wouldn't run on a Nokia 3310, but its software that only runs when I start it. I don't need my phone to be an electronic leash.

For me personally, occasional phone calls, a to-do list, dictation, sketching, audio playback, camera, ebook reading and sometimes video playback are the core functionality of my phone. For none of these functions that matter to me is there any need for all that background byte-swapping stuff.

News push services and Facebook auto-updating make me want to throw up. My phone spends as much time as possible in Airplane mode with all radios turned off. Its more like a small computer I can occasionally use for calling someone, but otherwise its for me to use alone, not to inteface with an illusory world of bits and bytes that want to be exchanged constantly.

I store everything on SD-Cards, so its also available when there is no connection.

Sadly, this is also why I'm prevented from buying the latest Google Nexus devices, because they come without card slots in what looks like a misguided effort by Google to force us into even more constant data transfer.

There is another reason besides battery drain not to overindulge in running all the radios on your phone needlessly:

Watch Beings of Frequency on Youtube

Something I wish more people would wake up to and not blindly trust corporate controlled governments and mainstream media.

I was taking a walk the other day. Saw a woman standing infront of a building, looking this way and that... when I passed by her, she stopped me and asked me where a certain house number might be. She kept saying "my maps app said its right here!" pointing at the phone.

She hadn't thought of walking up or down the street in one direction or another, to find out if house numbers were increasing or decreasing, she just stood there like a zombie in disbelief that the address wasn't exactly where her phone said it should be.

I find this to be a rather cautionary incident. She was young and did not have stupid written on her forehead, but still, I had to tell her to go look for rising or declining house numbers to figure out the right direction to walk in.

Don't let your phone do everything for you! I have never yet had a reason to turn on my GPS, I can find stuff myself. I would turn it on if I ever got lost, but so far, checking the time and the position of the sun is doing just fine for me in case I got turned around somehow.
