Trying to Understand battery usage

2010-05-15, 3:11 AM

In an effort to keep some charge to my battery for more than a few hours, I've check the "about phone- battery usage" setting.

Earlier today it said that the 'Android system' was using 96%. I hadn't even been using the phone. Now, it's just sitting here and it's showing 82%. What exactly is the 'Android system' if i'm not currently running any apps...atleast not that I am aware of! lol

The phone uses power constantly for many things. It pings the network to make sure you have a signal, it lights up the screen and buttons. Android runs just like any computer operating system, keeping time, making sure all the functions are ready to run when you need them. How long did it take your phone to drop that 14%?

Thanks. It was a couple of hours til I had checked it again when it showed the lower %. That and cell standby seem to use the most. So I guess I really just need to look at this more as a mini computer than a phone!

You hit the nail on the head. It is a mini-computer. Using 7 percent an hour is not unusual but does seem a little high. I'd be interested to learn if it drains at the same rate all the way through. Battery meters are not as reliable now as I think they will be in the future.
