Battery life

Glenn (unregistered) 09 Feb 2011, 22:16 posted on

Why is it the battery life of my galaxy ace will last for 1day max is 2days. Features for this phone are very good but battery performance I am a little disappointed. Can you recommend better battery suited for this phone? Thanks!

Likewise. I bought a Galaxy ACE on Monday and find I'm having to charge it daily! Today, I've had about 20 texts and replied to them and the battery has lasted all of six hours! Pathetic. I USED to be sucha fan of Samsung phones.

FYI: The battery of a certain device depends on how it is use like if your wifi is on, email account is active for auto notification, brightness set to max as well as for sounds. For this reasons , the expected battery life of a phone will not be the same. Make sense??

hi all, i am also experiencing the same problem on the battery life.. I just bought samsung ace. no apps installed yet and the battery only lasted for 1 day with normal use - text and call!

I already changed the settings, disable 3g and wifi, reduce the lcd brightness to zero etc. but its still the same problem..

I will try to download app for battery saver like juice defender and observe it again..

for those who are using the same phone, please advise.

Set backgroud sync to off, and install juicedefender app from android market, it"ll increase the backup somehow.

Here is what you need to do ( incase you didn’t already know)

1.Make Sure you remember to turn off Wifi / GPS and Location services

2.Turning off Background Data will also improve the battery life considerably

3.Go to Settings < Wireless And Networks < Mobile Networks
And turn of Cellular data / Phone data / Mobile data ( whatever it is called on your device)
You will see a 10x improvement in battery life to say the least. And guess what ? No more overheating of the device.

Hi all
Thanks !
I am able to save a lot on the battery time.
Earlier I need to charge almost every 24 hrs..After doing following steps, battery went down hardly 15 % in 20 hrs !
(1) Reduced brightness to Zero. Still no issue in screen visibility. Its natural only
(2) Goto Contacts Click on Options Button (on the left side of one and only button on phone). Click on Account. Make sure to Uncheck "background data".

This should give you really good battery time.
I did not use BT, GPS, WIFI earlier as well !
Hope this helps

Thanks for the battery saving tips guys - it'd been really getting on my nerves! I've done what you advised and hopefully this will help the life last longer.
In case anyone didn't know - a quick access to your Wifi, Bluetooth and GPS settings are hidden on the home screen. That way you keep them turned off while you don't need them - to save battery, but can quickly turn them on again should you need GPS cos you're lost in a field (for example).
1. Go to Home Screen
2. Press on the top bar (where the battery icon is) and drag down. A grey menu will show itself (it's a bit fiddily) and then across the top you can select and deselect the icons as needed.

I bought Galaxy Ace in last week, phone is awesome, android rocks,

but battery is a big big big issue.....

i use internet n calls, last for me for maximum 6 hours, that to phone heats up very fast during use, can feel to palm....
I had nokia N72, bettery was very gud (2 days)

Done every trick as mentioned above n battery saver applications also installed, but of no use.
Showed it to seller today, he gave me service centre address.

One additional thing i noticed is, i experience headache after talking on phone, has any body noticed the same or just my phycology? Whats its SAR value for India product? whether its safe?

Please update me....

well well well.....i'm reading n readin n reading all the crap written above, will somebody tell me what is the use of buying this kind of phone, when we disable our WIFI, GPS, Application and all... the much better thing is i should use a black and white phone huh.... its the biggest problem and will affect everything, you tell if you wont be able to use the application, music, wifi n other things just because of battery then why one will look to buy it, just because its a galaxy Ace??? guys spend a bit more money and go for samsung SI9003 , its a great phone..

Yes the battery is a big issue................. They have just created a giant with no teeth in his mouth........ While travelling this can be a big issue. I charge my battery for 5 to 6 hours some time more but the results ends in 6 to 7 hours normally. Also if I will listen songs its ends in 4 hours.
If you go to shop from where you have purchase phone they will turn you to service center and you will be pissed off.. Sab sale choor hai…
