I doubt that there is a direct correlation between battery consumption and RAM usage. The hardware doesn't know which RAM cells contain 'used' data and which not. So there can be no difference in battery consumption on that level. But I think that one could say that unnecessarily killing Apps causes a few extra CPU cycles when those Apps have to be ...

Think of RAM like a paper notebook. You can write data into the book (with a pencil), and you can erase those data and replace them with new data, but the book's always the same weight. The book doesn't get any heavier, whatever you write in it. The same way, with current RAM technology, the battery use of the RAM is fixed, regardless of what (if anything) ...

Battery app re-calculates the remaining battery based on the battery power currently being used (mV) and history. That's why you can do calibration to correctly measure the current battery status and range of it. In most case, battery power (mV), it goes down from the top and it usually up & down within a small range but for overall, it goes down. But ...

As the article explained to you, it doesn't matter how much stuff is loaded into the RAM, so that's completely okay if you don't close the applications that are idle. But if the app constantly does some activity, like syncing some data, or downloading, or even recording sound, it would drain your battery, because it uses the CPU, which sucks the energy from ...

That's really not normal. The phone should behave completely normally right up to the point it turns itself off. Since it's still under warranty, you should make a warranty claim. Trying to fix it yourself (or taking it to someone else to fix) will void the warranty, and might not fix the problem, which would leave you worse off than you started. From what ...

Was the battery life decrease sudden, or has it been getting noticeably worse recently? If so, might be time to get a new battery for your device. Regarding the restart, are there any apps that you've installed recently that might have a bug or something leading to restarts? When a phone reaches that age, I would personally root it and flash something like ...

From what it sounds like, you not only want it to show a higher percentage but also 'use' this last little bit of juice in the battery. Technically you could just modify the icon to show full all the time or be slightly above the real level, but that's just the icon's look. I think to accomplish what you're trying to do you will have to modify the ROM ...

I see.. Your main concern is to save battery life and identify which app consumes the most of your battery. You can use the hidden built-in android battery usage monitor using the guide below. Dial this code in your phone dialer * # * # 4636 # * # * then press on Usage statistics From here you could see how long your app is running even if it's running ...
