OK @#$% this, I'm out.

Ugghhhhhhhhh why. I used to have TMo, was happy with it, got caught into sprint with gimmicks. I hate my life.

OK it's not that serious, but why is this?

8/5 means 60% EXTRA battery life. That would explain how the people in the international forums get such insane numbers.

So, what's the best we can do with our measly Sprint phones?

I'm using a Sprint HTC One on a GSM network in India. I get on an average around 3.5 hours of screen on time.

Setup and screen shot would be nice, though that's a far cry from the 5 hours in the int'l thread .

I'll be switching to T-Mobile when m9 comes out. Mainly because of the sprint "wait now" network. Have been wanting to switch for years but figured I would give them a chance to fix it.

I started a thread on this, but I'll guess I'll ask here too.

What percent of your battery usage goes to Android System? According to GSam. I've noticed that the GSM guys have app usage in the high 20s or mid 30s. Mine is in the mid 50s. The Android System battery drain and kernel wakelocks are the issue here.

From what I've heard, poor signal on your sprint phone decreases your battery life. My average is around 2 hours OST within maybe 13 hours of use? I gave up on trying to make this thing last more than a day

That's absolute crap compared to the international guys.

And pretty close to what I'm getting, though mine isn't that bad. I can get 3/15 ish with my setup. If you want, I can pm you my setup.

I have been trying to post in this waiting for my battery to die. :P
till then here I am at the 50% benchmark
I basically greenify everything with it to disable hibernation upon notification. and mainly use this phone for whatsapp and blinkfeed reading

What's your setup? Your phone seems to deep sleep REALLY well.
