    I finally got a test done that I am confident is accurate. The upgrade set me back and I had to start over. One thing I noticed is that the 50% Bug seems to have gone away so maybe they fixed it in the upgrade.



    Part A -Without App Killer



    Start Time: 11:00 PM

    End Time: 6:00 AM



    Start Battery Level: 100%

    End Battery Level: 56%



    Wi-Fi: Off

    Bluetooth: Off

    GPS: Off

    Sync: Off

    Screen Timeout: 1 Minute



    Preferred Network Type: CDMA Auto PRL



    Cell Standby: 50%

    Time Without Signal: 1%

    Phone Idle: 48%

    Display: 2%



    At the beginning of the test, I manually went into Running Services and killed all apps that I could kill.

    At the end of the test, Backup Sync and Weather (The Weather Channel) were running.

    I lost 44% of my battery life in 7 hours without using the phone and having everything turned off.



    Part B -With App Killer (Advanced Task Killer



    Start Time: 10:30 PM

    End Time: 5:30 AM



    Start Battery Level: 100%

    End Battery Level: 96%



    Wi-Fi: Off

    Bluetooth: Off

    GPS: Off

    Sync: Off

    Screen Timeout: 1 minute



    Preferred Network Type: CDMA Auto PRL



    Cell Standby: 50%

    Time Without Signal: 0%

    Phone Idle: 50%



    At the beginning of the test, I set Advanced App Killer to:

    Auto Kill Level: Safe

    Auto Kill Frequency: Every Hour

    Security Level: Medium



    At the end of the test, only the weather app was running.

    I lost 4% of my battery life in 7 hours without using the phone and having everything turned off but the app killer. Based on this one test, using the App Killer was definetly an improvement (44% Vs 4%).



    I will be running a few more tests and will post them when they are completed. It is difficult to get accuarate tests when each day you use your phone differently. I am only posting the tests where the both parts of the test have similar usage and settings.

    I didn't see an improvement on the 50% issue, but I don't have mine set to CDMA only, so I will try that again and try to recreate your results here. Thanks for taking the time to test this out. BTW did you have auto PRL or not?

    Thanks for catching that, it was CDMA Auto PRL and not just CDMA Only. I updated it above.

    Interesting results, but something doesn't seem right with your tests without an app killer if you indeed didn't use your phone. Losing 44% is crazy. I don't use an app killer and I don't lose 44% of my battery in a day using the phone (that includes phone calls, texts, internet , etc.) I can't imagine losing 44% from not using it. When I don't use it, I lose maybe 5-6% from 8:00am to 10:00pm. If an app killer can save that much battery life, I may get a week out of mine if I got similar results to yours.

    Do you think you could run the same test as Ally and give us the same parameters that he has...do you have the update installed on your phone? Do you have backup sync running in the background. I would be curious to see if you do get that much life out of your battery why that is and how the rest of us could recreate it.



    The devil is in the details, but if we could setup some sort of test criteria maybe others could do it and post their results as well.

    I agree with you Joe. There is no reason why the battery life should be that bad even without the app killer. Especially with the TWS being 0%.



    Since the upgrade, it appears that my battery life has gotten worse and the only app that I see running is the Backup Assistant which I don't use.



    I am in the middle of my 2nd test and have been using the phone constantly for the past 2 hours (Internet, Pandora, Email, etc).

    Do you mean advanced task killer by ReChild, free in the market? There are a couple out there.

    If I can find a time where I don't need the phone for that long, I will charge her up to 100% and see what happens. And yes, I have the v9 update installed with backup sync running. It runs automatically so I have no choice.

    I should clarify that the running apps I am checking are the ones that show up under Running Services.



    These are not the same thing as the apps that run in the background.



    To view the running apps, you would go into Manage Applications, press the Menu button, touch Filter, touch running. This will show you what is really running on the phone.



    The ones that fall under services are apps looking for updates, trying to sync, etc.
