    I reset my htc 8x to factory setting last night but I made a backup setting before the process. Before the reset, my battery discharge speed was between 1.68-2.50% per hour and the battery last for 1-2 days with heavy use (twabbit+metrotube+whatsapp with some other social apps) on wifi only. After the reset, I restored my backup but about 12 apps without any name on them failed to download. Later I knew 3 of them (stop music/oggle pro/instaweatherpro) the paid versions I downloaded them when they were free for a limited time. Now, I have to pay to get them again. Is it normal?

    Also, the battery discharge speed now not less than 6.42% per hour!!. I did all the battery tips again as before the reset, even more!! I have an unlocked phone without any plan and I have the latest update which end with 77.

    I used to recharge my battery using usb through a desktop pc and a third branded charger from griffin.

    Griffin charger:

    Model: PB-BLK-2
    Input: 100-240V~50-60Hz 0.2A
    Output: 5.2V == 500mA

    But after the reset I charged my phone through socket using this one for 4 times now:

    Toshiba (for my tablet at300se)

    Model: PA3996D-1AC3
    Input: 100~240V ~ 0.4A 50/60Hz
    Output: 5V==2A. LPS

    I used Toshiba charger because it's twice as fast the supplied charger which I lost and also faster than Griffin.


    Any advice to give me about the charger/battery drain?

    Also what should I do to get again Oggl & Instaweatherpro without paying since I got them when they were free?

    Last thing, is there any list of all downloaded apps to my phone? Wether I have or deleted.


    Thank you

    Well, if you charge something faster than the stock charger can handle, chances are that the phone really isn't built to handle such charging speeds. I recommend cycling your battery, and using it for a while to try to solve the problem. If it doesn't go away after a few days, hard reset once more or have it replaced.

    Also, for the apps that you got for free, try contacting Microsoft. I've never had problems with reinstalling apps that I got for free, but became paid later on. By the way, MetroTube has an unlimited free trial, so you don't need to pay for it.

    Thank

    I did a reset again but this time without restore. I downloaded everything manually. And now I use a charger similar to the HTC charger in voltage.

    Battery is good again.
