Nexus 4 battery problem

Recommended Posts

My Nexus 4 has a strange problem lately : even in airplane mode the battery only lasts 15-20 hours. Even when the phone is put off with 100% battery and I switch it on 15-20 hours later, it has only 15% remaining, or even less. It has KitKat 4.4.4 (KTU84P). I tried to revert to the old 4.2.2 (JDQ39) using fastboot, and then all intermediate Google ROMS thru 4.4.4, and I always got the same problem. I even tried to flash CM-10.2.1-mako.zip, to no avail.
Except the battery problem, the phone works perfectly, but is next to unusable as a phone because I cannot rely on it for a whole day. I wonder if changing the battery will solve the problem ?

Are you installing after a full wipe each time?

Mine (or rather, my wife's since she inherited it) went dicky like this a while back. Unfortunately since she wouldn't let me "mess about with it" (root it etc) when I passed it on to her I couldn't use Better Battery Stats to check it out so had no option but to do a full wipe and reinstall stock 4.4.4. It was fine after that

If you are doing a full wipe then you'd best check your battery stats and see what's causing the problem

I though I was doing a full wipe since I used a script as the one following :

 

#!/bin/sh

fastboot flash bootloader bootloader-mako-makoz10o.img
fastboot reboot-bootloader
sleep 5
fastboot flash radio radio-mako-m9615a-cefwmazm-2.0.1700.48.img
fastboot reboot-bootloader
sleep 5
fastboot -w update image-occam-jdq39.zip

 

So I will try checking the battery stats as you advise
