DXID1 = poor battery life?

Hi All,

Ive been running DXID1 firmware for a couple of weeks now and have noticed that the battery life has gone back to how it was when i was running HH1 firmware last year.

Has anyone else noticed this?

We have been enjoying firmware with decent battery life for months but with DXID1 it seems to have gone bad once more.

Is it just me or can someone else confirm this?

My battery life seem's to be fine on DXID1. Lasting about 3 - 4 days depending on how much you use & play with your phone....

Can anyone else shed some light on this please?

Im using QBUS 21222 DXID1 ROM & i dont have that problem with battery life. Must be that specific ROM version.

Secany's ROMS are the original manufacturer ROMs are they not?

All custom roms would be built from the original manufacturer rom.

I havent seen a ROM chef do anything to improve battery life on ANY custom ROM so far so there must be something i am missing!

I think i need more opinions on battery life from those running any version of DXID1 firmware to come to any real conclusions.

Secany's DXID1 baterry life - 1 day

Qbus DXID1 battery life - 3 - 4 days

(Do the MATH) Now you have seen a ROM chef do something to improve battery life.... was trying to help you out but since i cant come up with any REAL CONCLUSIONS cheers mate.....

dont be a dick...

in this thread... we have one one person using secany's rom experiencing poor battery life.... one person using qbus rom with no problem... one person using unknown rom (could be same rom as you for all you know) with poor battery life...

hardly enough test data/opinions to come to come up with a theory is it?

I went from Taril's DXIA2 to QBUS DXID1, battery life is about the same (2-3 days depending on use). Even with fairly heavy use (2 hours music, 2 hours internet, 100 texts, half an hour calls, SPB shell 3 installed), I never get less than 48 hours. I sometimes find that after a reflash it's useful to fully discharge the battery a few times like you would with a new phone. Try that and see if it helps.

Yup I agree with you, battery drained so fast especially if you use your phone for internet through 3G network. perhaps only stand 1 day at least...but if normal using without open any application which consumed battery it could last 2 days. Currently I'm using DX1D1 with latest Dddrko build WM6.5....

ok thanks guys...

i think i just found why my battery was draining so fast... i hadnt set the device to turn off automatically after a minute of no use (under settings->power).

However... i will keep testing as even with this feature turned off, previous firmware would last longer then a day.

More opinions please!

I have two Samsung batteries I swap out. Also two of off-brand that I do not use because I learned the hard way that they do have real short battery life. For all roms I can remember, Qbus 04/05/06 and many sector's G2 to N1, I get about the same. Every night it sits at 70-80%, sometimes less. So I charge to full 100% overnight to be ready for next day. I am a heavy user of PDA part, ebook reader, and other programs as that is my background. I just expect to recharge every night as old habit with PDAs. So maybe I could get two days(?). I swap batteries every week or so, but not more as I have on hard crystal case to remove.

I hope this helps the one that is keeping score. Thanks to him. Good idea to collect data on this.

For the record, I've had Secany's DXID1 on my omnia since the weekend. The first day saw the battery last less that the day. It was fully charged overnight (saturday night) and is now down to 30% having not seen a charger since early sunday morning. That's 3 days on a full charge.

I may try a hard reset to see if that improves things at all, but I have been using the phone a lot more than usual since putting DXID1 on as I rediscover the gems of the Samsung roms (I was on Passao's MD04 before).

Personally, I like this rom. The touch sensitivy is worlds apart the the original rom my phone had and the new setting menu is proving rather useful too.

Well, I'm facing the similar issue with the battery life also.

My Omnia could barely last a day.

Not sure if this is related to the phone part or not.

I upgraded my "phone" part rom to DXID1....was using IA5 or IA2 not that sure..

Or is it the Winmo 6.5 i have flashed on (now i'm on Sector's O1(L) 21232.

Can a part of this come from the phone rom?

ANYONE?

Those who are saying it lasts for 2-3 days, which phone rom are u using? Pls share.

+1 Ron <_<

I always charge battery over night so i have a full 1 the next day :D

People read about battery test a lot so the think it will be the same for them . ( I think )

But i think its the user who make the battery life long or ......short :)

My result of battery check = 2 days.

Thats listing music ,sms ,calls,watching youtube clips from the site itself

and playing with titanium ( thats new for me hehehe B) ) i am on 01N

Ltr all :P

Update- I did not charge for two overnights. I mostly used for phone. Very little PDA applications time for two days. This morning after the two days/nights the power was at 50%. I am going to charge it up a little now as I will be gone for the day and don't want to get too low.
