    New theme = Low battery life?

    Advertisement



    I don't know if this is possible but I put a new theme on my 8310 and I noticed that the battery life started to suck. I charged it all night, unplugged it, drove to work which takes about twenty minutes and the battery life went down to 80%. I also noticed while my phone was sitting on my desk the screen would randomly light up then turn off after a little while. Anyways I switch back to my old theme and haven't had any problems but I'm not too sure it was the theme. Is that possible? Lol. The theme I was using was one I made if that helps at all.

    I guess the theme could cause it...are you sure that there isn't anything else running in the background?

    Yes it can be because of the theme. Some themes for some unexplained reason tend to drain battery life more than usual. I guess its because they are not the default options. I had that issue with the Pearl so I was very careful choosing my theme for my 8320.

    Are you sure (I know, someone said it already) something wasn't running in the background, like Google Maps, a GPS tracker, etc.? The backlight coming on at random is a telltale of that, and GPS / Location Services are a bigger battery drain in particular.

    I am not ruling out themes, just that I have not personally experienced a battery-draining theme.

    Well i do have google maps installed but its never caused any problems before. Plus I installed the theme, reboot the device then plugged it in the charge over night. Never opened the brower or google maps. I dunno. it's odd lol

    That's very interesting. Which themes could possobly drain the battery on the 8320? I have the curve and I definitely don't want to run into that problem.
