My android 4.4.3 phone was off and in storage but when I got it back the battery was flat and there was some stuff on facebook I can't account for. Is there any log files which would confirm when my phone was on etc.


I found this answer useful. It might help you with what you're looking to accomplish:

Log file locations

As an alternative, there's an app that can help you analyze logs:

aLogcat (free) - logcat

  • I don't think any of that information would help. The crash logs only log crashes, not normal phone use. Both dmesg and logcat aren't saved to non-volatile storage, so they're only good for telling you what happens while the phone is still on, not previous times it's been on. – Dan Hulme Jul 7 '14 at 16:12
  • Thanks, I was looking through it and trying some of the apps but wasn't getting anything useful. I'm starting to think there isn't any logs stored on the phone by default. – user65727 Jul 7 '14 at 16:21
