    Default Mobile problem

    I am experiencing a problem with my Samsung, it easily get drained while it took me an hour of charging it. Do I need to change my battery? What could be the possible cause of this? And is it still safe to use?

    Well, this is not safe at all you can try any other battery and see if it works properly, only than you would be able to find out the problem. Charging your phone again and again is not going to help you best way to get this thing sort is replace your battery as soon as possible.

    Anyway, how old is your battery? If it is a very old one, it's better to change it. Otherwise, your phone may be experiencing a "Sudden Battery Drain Syndrome". In most of the cases this may be caused by Google or Play services which are the backbone of an Android phone.

    They keep on checking for updates of your phones applications and sometimes they get stuck in the process. This may cause a sudden battery drain on some models. So when you experience a sudden drop in battery power, just reboot your mobile. This will release the program which is stuck in the process and it will start working as normal.

    I am not using it now and I will buy another battery as what you advised. I am really thinking about changing it, its just that I am thinking if it really the battery that has a problem. But is there a possiblity that using data on mobile could consume battery fast? I used the mobile in browsing the net. Is it also possible that it causes the fast usage of my battery?

    I bought my battery together with the mobile, and its only about 3 years old. There is a possibility because my data connection is always activated. So this means that it takes a lot of battery usage if my phone is exposed in the net? Well, I am not using it for now because I am really afraid maybe it's dangerous to use. I'll try to buy one and compare, if it still happens then there's no problem with my battery. And that would possibly because of the softwares working on my mobile. Thanks for the help.

    Even when the phone is off-line it can happen because some Google services still work on the background. Another solution to this problem is to disable unnecessary Google services. But you need to make sure that the programs you are disabling are the ones you really don't want to use. Because once you disable them their icons will not appear anymore on the application menu.

    Did you check if there are applications running on the background? If so, they must have been the cause of the sudden drain of your battery. If the sudden drop isn't caused by running applications on the background, I think your battery is already defective and you need to replace it soon. I believe it's still safe unless your phone is already swollen because of the defective battery. You have to have it checked soon to prevent further damage to your phone.

    Now I know and thanks for the informative link that you shared. My phone frequently used in internet browsing and my WIFI is always activated. Maybe that is the main reason of the sudden drain that my mobile phone encounters. I also disabled some of Google Services that I don't use. All I have to do is observe if there's changes. I have learned a lot from what you shared.

    First of all, you should remove the batter and see if it is swollen, if it is then you must replace the battery, as that is a symptom of a fault battery. I had this problem on my Galaxy S3 Neo, after experiencing minor water damage to the screen. The device suddenly started to get very hot, and buggy, and it had a very short battery life. As soon as I replaced the battery, the problem was resolved.

    However, if the battery isn't swollen, then it's most likely not a faulty battery, which is good news. If this is the case, I would suggest to monitor your background app usage, and also the RAM that is being used up. You can check this via settings, or holding the home button and clicking the pie chart icon on the bottom right of the screen. You can download apps on the play store that can monitor and restrict background apps, and example of an app that does this very well, is an app called Clean Master. It's free on the play store, and I've been using it on my galaxy S3.

    Good luck on getting the issue resolved

    three years is a long time for battery, particularly if the phone has been used heavily. but do check if its swollen or not.

    Google play has been a major culprit in eating away battery power in Android phones. But I think Google has taken it up seriously and that is they have introduced a new app called doze in their new version, Marshmallow. In Doze mode the device goes into a sleep mode and only wakes up to sync data. Doze will become active when the phone is unplugged. idle and screen is off. In Doze mode all network access is disabled and WiFi scans $ wake locks are ignored.

    Practically, the device goes into coma stage and the power consumption would be bare minimum.

    I agree with what webworld said, you could try disabling google services from starting up on your phone, if you have a rooted phone. And also, try removing and apps that constantly run in the background. Furthermore, if you don't use your device for phone calls, and only use it for entertainment, you could turn on Airplane mode, which significantly increases battery life.

    You should check the apps in background as Facebook. These apps normally consume a good part of the battery.
