Battery time in settings
« on: December 31, 2012, 08:52:40 AM »
Hi all

I have been trying to work out how long my battery is lasting me, and when I go into settings then battery it tells me in time how many minutes ie 25 minutes on battery.

When I switch off my Nexus it resets though so I never really know how to track how long I am getting out of my battery.

Is it supposed to do this? And if so is there a way to track how long I am getting between charges?

Thanks all

Chris

Hi Chris.
Not sure why your battery info is resetting after a reboot. Mine keeps the time fine after .. So what you are saying is if you were charged 100 percent , disconnected the cord , and used the device for an amount of time you would see a breakdown of your usage correct? Apps , total time used on battery etc. Then after a reboot all of that info is gone? Are you sure you are doing this without connecting power at anytime in between? Not even sure if that will make a difference ..just trying to wrap my head around this one.

Jayj when does the graph reset? I just tried to reset by charging, turning off etc. I am a little confused now because I started charging my battery and everything stayed the same. So that wouldn't give you an accurate time right? Do you have to start with a full charge?

This is getting weird and more weird. When I look at what's been using battery it says screen 33%.fair enough but when I click on it if says its been on for 13mins and the second.

That's impossible though as I have been using nexus for last hour solid?

I'm stuck!

You are getting a replacement for a software glitch?

Well at the end of the day it's not doing what it should and is therefore faulty, so yes they said they would replace it

Attached are 2 screen shots, as you can see the screen on time is very low I have practically had the screen on for 3 hours and yet this seems to think it's hardly been on at all.

Edit. How do you attach pics lol
