Anyone notice a change? Mine (the meter at least) has gotten a lot better.
This seems to be my option as well--it does not nosedive quickly like it did before--much more consistent as it drains down.i must say that i have seen great improvement in battery life... usually im down to about 20% around 8pm.. last night i was at 40% at 10pm..
I had the same thing happening yesterday morning.... it dropped all the way to 3%. I tried to reboot it, but it wouldn't boot up. So I plugged it in to a power source. Finally, it would boot up and the battery would briefly say something like 16-19%,...
Same here. I had a really good battery life before, like 3 days of heavy usage sometimes.
Mine is the same way (3GS 32GB.. pre-ordered minutes after announced). It's forced me to become a phone charger hobo... I need to carry a charger and plug it in at around 4 in the afternoon.
I'm a pretty heavy user myself and I charge it every night. Around 2300/midnight my battery is usually down to 20-25%.Same here. I had a really good battery life before, like 3 days of heavy usage sometimes.
Now after even 12 hours, most of the time idle, the battery is empty. This is pathetic.
Tried a restore, battery calibration, soft reset and all the kind of things I read on the web. Simply upgrading to 3.1.3 killed my battery life... and to think the changelog said the battery accuracy would be better
