1 Answer

GT-I9070 My mother got this phone. She dosn't use it much so the battery usually last for a week or so. But now, all of a sudden the battery dosen't even last for a day! "Andriod OS", and "Cell standby" uses most of the power. about 50-60% combined. The phone has Android version 2.3.6 Any solutions?

While the phone is attached to the charger, check the cell temperature. If it gets warm, the cell is activating its internal protection. Try this: when the cell loses power, take it out and put it in a freezer for a few minutes, then reconnect it to the phone. If the charge returns, the internal circuit is reacting to internal heat. Get a new cell.

Try a new battery. Many phones do this when the battery goes defective.

It is also possible that the battery control circuits in the phone are defective. This is less common.

SOURCE: Have few problems with Samsung Galaxy 5 GT-

Ifthe battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be wornout. Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cyclesand will lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% andgradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up atall. ORThe battery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected thebattery drops off to zero capacity in a very short time. Ifthe battery drops to an unacceptable charge level then the battery needs to bereplaced.

Wi-fi has been known to eat up the battery life on ALL devices it's on.
That's just the way it functions.
If you really want to save battery on your phone, disable wireless, bluetooth and 4G connections you may have, dim the screen to it's lowest setting and change the display timeout to a very low time.

Low battery and Phone communication failure


Check that you are not using an app that is continuously accessing the internet and communicating with a server for some reason that is using the phones WiFi or mobile channel. This will drain battery life if incorrectly configured etc ( i.e selecting access to your location, services and other info )

I haven't worn my fossil watch (FS 4337 model) for some time & decide to wear it & shook it, adjust it, & it dosn't work. Usually when I don't wear it for about 2 weeks, I shake it...


If you have a Fossil FS4337 Chronograph, shaking the watch shouldn't be doing anything other than exercising your muscles; the movement is a battery-driven quartz movement whose movement is controlled only by whether the stem has been pulled out (stopping the movement and saving power) or whether the battery still has enough power to activate the stepping motors that move the watch hands. Based on the symptoms that you've described, I would suggest that it's probably time to change your watch battery.

Often, when a watch battery is running low but isn't completely dead, pulling the stem into time-setting mode will stop the movement and permit the battery to "rest," giving it (briefly) a bit more reserve amperage to put out when you push the stem back in. That's how you can sometimes get a quartz watch to run for a few minutes after the battery appears to be dead. That may also be why your watch has started running again after you've set the time and date.

Fossil analog quartz watches tend to use silver oxide (usually #377 or #379) batteries instead of longer-lasting lithium batteries. In ordinary use, I would expect a silver oxide battery to provide between 1 and 2 years of service before it needs to be replaced. I can't remember if Fossil chronographs (which also use quartz movements) use a silver oxide or lithium battery. Lithium batteries often provide an additional year or two of service in analog watches, compared to silver oxide cells; digital watches using them supposedly may last as long as 10 years with a lithium battery, assuming you don't use the backlight or audible alarm functions. Note, however, that these batteries are different sizes and different voltages, so you can't substitute one for the other.

Finally, none of this advice applies if you have a Fossil watch with a true mechanical movement in it. In that case, gently shaking the watch may spin the winding rotor enough to start the watch back up again. However, an even faster way of winding those watches is to use the winding / time set crown to wind the mainspring directly instead of relying on the geared-down action of the winding rotor. Automatic watches can bind up if they are not used for a period of time; the lubricating oil used in some of the pivots can harden--or at least provide enough resistance that the movement may require more initial force to start running than to continue running. That behavior usually indicates that it's time to have the mechanical movement cleaned and re-lubricated.
