    Anyone else experiencing poor battery backup after installing amber? My phones average discharge rate before amber was 3% per hour, battery easily lasted a whole day. But now battery discharges at 6 to 8% per hour even with battery saver always on.

    Check to see you weren't given the 4G update as well. I was. Even if you aren't getting 4G you need to switch out of 4G mode or it'll keep looking for 4G. That'll drain power.

    I had 4g option before.. I have 2g selected as highest data speed in mobile network settings... I don't think that's the problem.

    This is just ridiculous! I mean battery backup should at least stay the same if not get better after an update. What's the need of an update, if it makes things worse than before

    Hi sharek77, i have experience the same condition as you. But after uninstalling my battery indicator app the condition change greatly from standby 3%/hr to like 1% or less per hour.
    Do you have battery apps installed (mine is Battery by enless soft)? Maybe u can try uninstalling it.

    You can average it by looking at the battery status in settings.

    No suggestions. If you want to try a factory reset and let us kno how that works.
    Only other thing is to wait for gdr3

    First thing to do is a factory reset.

    But 6% to 8% is OK if you are using 3G or 4G.

    Amber here, 3% per hour, but 2G always on. Sometimes 3G.
