Please upload few snapshots of ur battery use when ur battery reaches about 5-10 %
settings>about phone>battery use>tap on the graph and take a snapshot (long press ur power button > tap screenshot)
Similarly do it for battery use due to apps... if ur battery use page is long take several snapshot
What apps have you got running? How bright do you have the screen?
How often do you retrieve data for email/Facebook/Twitter etc as this can cause drain if it is set for every 5-10 mins.
Some live wallpapers can kill your battery quicker dont use any battery saver or task killer
Switch to gsm mode( settings>wireless and networks>mobile network>network>select gsm only)

Would you beileve that this the battery back up i get from ARC S. It's 4 months old.
*** Brightness : 40% and BE Engine : Off****
Now to get the most out of ur Device, u need some tweaking. So please do as Nabeel said, and show us the graph here. We would gladly share whatever we know to help u.
And as far as i know, from various ARC S users amonh my friends, ARC S [without any moderation or tweaking] should stay alive for at least 22-26 hrs even after moderate use.
In heavy use the phone will die after 12-14 hours.

So now I got an example of how bad it is.. I charged my phone went out for gym when I had trained for 1 hour it was 92 % and battery usage was on top 47% with the screen.. I got lowest light and the time I had used the screen was 1 min and 2 seconds.. Which is 7% a minute... "Feels like"
The one minute i believe when I was starting it after the gym ..
When my phone is down at 5 % I will take screenshot :smileywink: Posting later tonight

brakkie your battery is all fine,
wifi is on most of the time
i see that your cell standby is also consuming a lot
do this settings> wireless and networks> mobile and networks > network mode > select gsm only
and brakkie your screen used 47 % battery in 1 minute doesn't means that its using a lot of battery ,, this means out of all the tasks / apps, 47 % battery was used by screen in 1 minute
and you know it well, ARC S screen has a large,, so its normal
