What sort of Battery Life are you getting on your Samsung Epic 4G?
I ordered my Epic on Tuesday morning. I received it on Wednesday midday. I charged it to full immediately before I used it or activated it.
The first full day of use (Thursday) I didn't pay much attention to battery life, but it seemed very fast to drain, but of course, I was doing a lot of messing around and such.
Friday I barely used it at all and it died on me (to shutdown) after about ten hours.
Saturday I monitored the phone and used it barely (not at all)- these are my battery use statistics from "battery monitor":
- Uplugged 12H 16M 58S
- Cell Standby- 42% Time without Signal 64%
- Phone Idle- 24%
- Voice Calls- 11% (about 2m 30s)
- Android OS 4%
- Dialer 3%
I took one call, and did not use any functions or features of the phone. Additionally, the screen brightness is turned all the way down, and I have turned off WiFi, 4G, GPS, etc.. No apps were running in the background. It was in "standby" mode the majority of the time. I do live in an area that has interesting sprint cell phone coverage/service.
ALSO- Take Note. If you are thinking of buying the Desktop Dock, it IS NOT usable with a cover (such as the red/black cover) sold by Sprint.
I am interested if everyone's battery life is as bad as mine, or I am having an annomoly or problem.
Thank you very much-
