The OS isn't relevant to charging speed, but the internal hardware differs heavily between phones. One thing you'll experience is that nearly all chargers that advertise themselves as 2.1A are optimized for iProducts, which require a different grounding scheme in the charger to reach their full speed, and that same scheme limits Android devices to 500mA. So ...

The power consumption isn't noticeable. Even a tiny watch battery can run a small LED for a few days continuously. Increasing the blink rate won't change the power consumption at all: what makes a difference is how long the "on" part of the blink is compared to the "off" part. This is called the duty cycle of the LED. Most LED controllers use the duty ...

I am answering my own question, because i somehow solved it. I downloaded the Battery Doctor app (the one featured by Clean Master) and created a scheduled profile for night that has timeout set to 5. Also enabled 'charging screensaver'. It's ok now. Battery doctor takes over the TouchWiz uselsss popups and notifications, and forces it to stand by after 5 ...

Not going to beat around the bushes here - take it to a repair shop as soon as you can. The problem with water damage is that it's impossible to diagnose the extent of the damage by just seeing what the average user can do (ie. turning it on and off). It needs to be opened up and inspected by someone who knows what they're doing so they can let you know if ...

I had the same problem on Alcatel POP C5 with Kingstone 8GB micro sd class 10 card. First i thought that the problem was with the phone. Then after replacing whit another, borrowed card, the phone was working normal again, so i concluded that it was the bad sd card. Using Wake Lock - PowerManager with PARTIAL_WAKE_LOCK enabled did solve the problem, ...

The solution is to install program Wake Lock and set the setting to PARTIAL_WAKE_LOCK. This keep necessary power for SD card even if of charger and with disabled display. It obviously cause a bit more battery consumption, but far less then constant SD card remounting. No root needed.

If its downloading 1 file from 1 site - barely works: Its offloaded to modem. If its downloading via torrent - Might work harder; decrypting, hashing, etc... Basically Downloading takes little CPU -----> I am gonna guess youre asking "Why does downloading eat my battery so hard?" If that is the case: Then Think of your Cell(3g,4g,etc) and Wifi As giant ...

As already mentioned, Power Tutor doesn’t display power for the GPU. Power Tutor is a very cool app, but it's based on research that was done in 2011. It uses modelling to estimate power consumption. No actual power is displayed. Power Tutor is surprisingly accurate when it is run on the phone that was used to create the model, but that phone (the HTC Dream) ...

If you have got root acces then install an app from the play store that can shut down your phone. Like this one: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=GRuV.PowerOff.PowerOff Hope it helps!

To check the amount of current (in mah) received by the mobile use app called - CurrentWidget Only High Quality Cables will give you high current from Adaptor, for example when your adaptor has max output of 2A and using high quality usb 2.0, you will get around 1900mA which is almost equal to Battey Output. Onother hand, when the cable is bent (due to ...

This is a known issue with Lollipop, please see the following: Issue 79445: No silent mode

There is more to an adapter than just the current, although kudos to you for knowing that much. The problems arise due to the fact that the USB-2 spec is for a maximum of .5 A at 5 V without some extra handshaking to ascertain that the device wants and can handle more. For Apple devices, this is done in a certain way according to their "standard", which is ...

I had the same problem and today I did find what was causing my problem. It just started yesterday, 2 weeks after I got the phone. And the ONLY thing that was different is that I started using a generic AC charger that arrived yesterday. When I suspected it was the charger this morning, I switched back to the white Samsung charger that came with the phone ...
