Bigger screen, higher resolution, more powerful processor so would expect it to use more, although will depend on backlighting levels too. Mind you the htc butterfly seems to do better than the One X.

He's doing well though seen people saying they get three and a half hours on N4


Naa an arm is an arm processor and even though if they manage quad cores it would not be giant power sucker. Although I concede with you to the screen factor consider that it is an IPS display it would consume less power. Correct me if I am wrong though

BetterBatteryStats doesn't work for me. It doesn't show any stats at all which is rather odd. Anyway all you really need to install is CPU Spy Plus from the Play Store.

Use CPU Spy Plus to ensure yo
These are the sort of battery life you should be able to achieve with normal usage:

I get a bad 3G signal here which is why there is no data showing when I took the screen shots. I turn wifi off when I don't need it.

Thank You

You're obsessed with screen on time, I've told you it's just a percentage. flibblesans would be higher but he's been using benchmarks and games. Just the 3 that I can see on the screenshot uses 7%, if he'd not used them he would be at 51% for the screen.

I dont seem to be getting anywhere near as good battery life as other people and certainly no where near as good as my omnia 7, this is only the 2nd time ive charged the phone though so will it get better after a couple more charges? The phone arrived to me with orange ICS and all ive done is switch to Xolo ICS, I leave everything on other then bluetooth. Is my battery duff?

Without knowing how long that screen has been on to use the 43% of the 27% used in 6hrs no one can really reach much in the way of a conclusion.
Looking at the awake times I'm guessing about 1.5-2 hours?

I would guess the screen has been on 45 minutes at most, I havent done anything intensive on the phone and it certainly hasnt been on for 2 hours.

Turn off everything you don't need at that moment, presuming you're rooted delete social gallery, it's a real battery hog. It won't do any harm to flatten your battery and fully charge it either although it may not be necessary nowadays.

Just wondering how my battery is comparing to others really, my signal keeps dropping so this phone will be returned anyway.

If you press in the area for screen on the battery page it will show screen on time.
Looking on the other items might show which has been keeping the phone awake

Google maps will have relaunched as a background app unless you've actually disabled it. But are they continuing to use more power or is it just showing what they've already used?

It's what HAS been used, press refresh and it'll change anyway.

Yeah it's what has been used since it was last charged. So they shouldn't be vanishing from the list, but should decrease in %age usage as other things use the battery.
