I recently updated my Samsung Galaxy 3 to Android 2.2 . After the update my fully charged battery dies in just 3 hours(without any use) and around 1 hour if I use it (talking,browsing etc). I am using the phone for the past one year. This is too annoying because I am not able to use it anywhere outside. The battery quickly dies.

When I used Android 2.1 , the battery used to come for 1 full day

Is this battery problem because of the updated from 2.1 to 2.2 ?

Are there any work arounds for this ?

Any abnormalities shows in battery usage? – roxan Oct 7 '11 at 6:41
No. Nothing abnormal as such. I mean what is "abnormal"? – vinoth Oct 7 '11 at 6:45
Shows any program eating too much battery? Or why don't you install watchdog and see if any program is eating too much CPU. – roxan Oct 7 '11 at 6:51
Did your display brightness settings get reset after installing the upgrade? (Or other battery-saving settings that you used to have set that might've gotten reset, like WiFi scanning?) – P.T. Oct 7 '11 at 6:52
You also might want to check How to deal with (orphaned) WakeLocks? -- could be an app misbehaving. // If your problem was already solved in the meantime (as you are not responding to any comments), it would be nice if you add an answer and letting us know the solution. – Izzy Dec 17 '12 at 20:11
