This morning when I checked the battery info, it was at 39% with 31 days and 5 hours left…
So I checked it again closer to 1 PM and found it remaining at 39% with 38 days and 7 hours left.
Now the time is 10 PM and it still says 39%... The estimated time remaining says more than 51 days.
Time since last charged says 2 days 14 hours (which sounds accurate as I recall myself charging it about 2.5 days ago)
I have attached 3 screenshots of what I see. Check the time stamps. They were taken just few mins apart.
I’m assuming it’s a software bug, not a hardware issue…
Has anyone ever noticed any similar battery performance indicator issues? Just curious to know…
I’ve seen a lot of posts that says the battery would not last for few days. I have experienced the same myself. It used to drain very fast at the beginning. Couldn’t make it to last more than 24 hours after a “moderate” amount of usage . Yet noticed a gradual improvement with each use. Finally came to a point where I could manage to keep it for about 3 days or so in a row.
I do recall myself leaving the phone plugged into the charger for an extra hour or so… before unplugging. Since then I have made 26 calls, longest been 47 minutes. My emails are configured to be checked twice a day, have received about 35 text messages, accessed about 7 static web pages, taken a few pictures, one GPS usage for guidance (about 15 mins long) and used a few other apps. At home always connected to wi-fi. At times I see it been connected to 4G and the other times to 3G.
It almost looks like that estimate is just an extrapolation of the time since the last charge. Not reliable…
Would this “bug” kill my batter for good any sooner or would it degrade my battery life eventually?
Wonder if I should be worried… Few days ago the phone completely died. I thought the battery was dead, yet could not turn it on after charging it for 30 mins. Then read a few posts and tried a restart with just the volume lower button and the on/off button. Still wouldn’t turn on. Then I tried all three button (those 2 buttons and the camera button), which brought it back to life. All my custom installed apps remained the same.
Nokia N95 8GB was way reliable than this one.
