I have a new Pre3 UK-version using on AT&T in US. My current battery life is terrible. I just let the phone idle and it came down 3% in the last hour (data on, everything else off, email/account syncing either manual or once per hour, no skype account). With use, I am eating through as much as 20-25% per hour (say Pandora + facebook). Govnah reports that (with screen on so I can see govnah) I idle at -130mA, with even the smallest action pushing up to -250mA or more.
Things I've done so far:
-- Change accounts (email, rss, etc) to manual (once per hour in some cases).
-- No skype or other IM accounts
-- Uberkernel + Govnah (default kernel was worse, so slight improvement from this)
-- Muffle Logging
-- Screen brightness @ 10-20% (based on need)
-- BT off (only use it very rarely), wifi off (unless using), gps off (until ndrive comes out anyway), data on (3g/2g as available, although turning it off showed little improvement)
-- Charging with cable, haven't done conclusive testing yet but Touchstone runs hot and battery tends to suffer.
What am I missing?
Also, what are the recommended Govnah settings for Uberkernel for the Pre3?
Current status: phone has been off the charger for 5 hours, I am at 67% already. Mostly idling, and about a dozen text messages, and a minute or 2 on facebook over 3g. Yesterday by this time (with about an hour of heavy data) I was easily looking at 40%.
WebOS Ver 2.2.0
Another data point. I am currently at 52%. 1/2 an hour ago it was 62%. What happened between now and then? My lunch break. Figure I spent 15 minutes or so eating, and then 15 or so minutes doing some web browsing over 3g. That is a going rate of .66% decrease in battery for every 60 seconds of use.
Posted from my PC because my Pre3 can't stay alive long enough to post this.
