Just wondering what everyone's getting for battery life? I've only had my 7015 for a little over 24hrs and despite all the downloading and tweaking I've been doing my battery has never gotten below 50% or so.
I used adb to rename both Phone.apk and TelphonyProvider.apk
The looping force close problem hits the Coby screen but I still got the power down and yes eventually without having to use the reset button.
If you haven't used adb yet you might be able to do it from a "Terminal Emulation" app like this:
# mv /system/app/Phone.apk /system/app/Phone.bak
Then the screen will get stuck in an endless loop about force close. Try power down and clicking on "OK". If not push in the reset button on the back. The endless loop will mean you can only do one each boot.
It worked-I had no problem getting out of the FC loop. I now have an icon on the top of my screen that looks like one of the volume ones but with an X next to it and I assume that means the phone apps are gone.
Wow! You weren't kidding about the increase in battery life! I was using it pretty heavily yesterday and after 4 hours my battery was only down to 50%. I ended up getting about 7 and a half hours total before it got down to 10%! I also keep the screen at about 40% brightness which I think helps too.
I wanted to know more so google'n lead me to PowerTutor.
I downloaded from their web-site PowerTutor
but maybe I didn't start the server.
I downloaded again from Market and got it going.
So on on my MID with the screen brightness around the middle of the slide, I see more than 3/4 of the power usage is the LCD display. The rest is all the CPU. The display is drawing 35 mW. Sliding up to the max brightness the power jumped to 54 mW.
My conclusion is the LCD is 75% to 85% of the drain on the battery.
If Sue has the display very low the battery will last much longer.
If l_n is using adb and the display is dark the battery will last much much longer.
Conclusion: For long battery life have the brightness as low as comfortable. In a car in the sunshine I expect I'll have mine very high. Also set the screen off timer to as low as you can accept.
