My Sola does not last beyond 13-14 hours.I do not use 3g or wifi, internet is used very rarely, power saver is always on. I just downloaded the new firmware through PC companion. Can someone help?

Re: Battery usage

Go to settings/ About Phone/ Battery Usage and check there for power hungry apps.
I suggest you shut down the screen backlight, it can save up a decent amount of power.

Re: Battery usage

It could be a faulty battery or signal problems ( i think phones consume more power at low signal since they try hard to connect or something, im not an android expert so dont take my word 100%) , my sola is now at 80% battery 15h after charging and thats with 30min gaming(FF III) 10min calls , 3g, and wifi on for the whole 15h ( no browsing just those FB notifications)

Re: Battery usage

After 4 days you have  at least 30% battery. It looks very good . I get 4 days total with network connection online all the time.  I still find it to be good. I'm still using .154

Re: Battery usage

Have you tried charging the battery to 100% and leaving it to be charged until the little lightning symbol on the battery disappears?
