Samsung Galaxy Spica i5700 Battery Drain [SOLVED]
Samsung Galaxy Spica i5700 Battery Drain [SOLVED]

This has to be the most egregious bug I've ever seen in a product on the market. For close to a year now I've been trying to figure out what the heck was causing my Samsung Galaxy Spica battery to drain in like 10 minutes. I didn't happen all the time, just on days I really needed my phone.

Eventually I stumbled across an obscure thread on samdroid.net which mentions a bug in the Spica camera. The bug causes the CPU to stay in top speed after the camera has been used and thus drain all the battery even when the phone is supposed to be asleep.

The solution is simple. Download and install the CoolS app from the Android market. It puts the phone back into power saving mode automatically when it goes to sleep.

Still can't believe how long this problem bugged me for. Samsung, shame on you.

I guess I'd call myself a problem solver. Either that, or I'm some sort of organic machine designed to convert oxygen into carbon dioxide. You could go either way on that. I'm into languages and stuff. I wrote a book. It's okay, I guess. What else? I like reading, swimming, eating, and playing music. Satisfied? Sheesh.
