Yes, I do have occasional bad cell phone reception issues as well (see Resolving bad signal / call partners don’t hear me or only interruptedly). Plus, this is consistent with the fact I reported above, that in flight mode, battery lasts much, much longer for me.


#22

And do you still get a high percentage of “Sonstiges” while in flight mode? I never tested that.


#23

Haven’t tested that - and probably won’t be able to do so soon, as I need my phone for being connected at the moment :wink:


#24

…which is why I didn’t test that either. :wink:

Hey !
Just wanted to ad the Youtube app on the latest Nougat Android OS version.
It has drained +40% of the battery in just 15 min of using the app !

Going to investigate :wink:

on my phone camera is most “hangry” app, and all games

especially Pokemon Go, this game use all phone resources


#28

You can add AccuWeather. It causes the phone to run very hot all of a sudden, once every few weeks. I have no clue what triggers it.


#29

Do you let the camera App run endlessly in the background, or do you close it after use?


#30

Have you compared with NewPipe [1]? It is available on F-droid.

Leaving the camera App running was the one real battery draining thing I had on Android 6.
Now I’m using Android 8 (#lineageos) and Open Camera (Play Store / F-Droid), and leaving the camera running doesn’t drain the battery anymore, so at least this behaviour can be remedied somehow.


#33

Oh, thank you, I’ve found Open Camera will try and geve you feedback


#34

The app that drains the battery quickest for me is BOINC, a distributed computing app but that is hardly surprising as it can run all four cores flat out if you let it. (In practice that isn’t a good idea as the phone and or battery keep heating up and computing gets suspended. Apart from during winter I never let it use more than one core at a time.
