    lg battery issue

    LG g3 battery seems to go down fast can't do as much as I did and battery takes several hours to go 100%. Sometimes when lightly using on charger it goes down instead of up. Sometimes does not move or when going down I must unplug wait little bit then plug it back in.

    Same apps as it was before problem started I checked anyway to see how much it takes seems normal to me. Cache cleared and rebooted. Plugin is cleared. 2 New battery 1 original other high quality 10000mah same issue.

    Your opinion on solution. I have not factory reset or new charger. Hate to get charger unless I know that's it. Running apps in background already checked.

    Is your Wifi, Bluetooth, GPS turned on ? When not needed/in use, turn those off. How old is your phone ?

    If you haven't already checked, go to your phone settings to find battery usage. This will confirm which applications/features are using the majority of your battery. You can selectively turn those features off or delete unwanted applications. Hope that is helpful.

    Look up how to recalibrate your battery so the phone shows you what you "really" have battery charge wise. Though some LG's I've had weren't good at that either.
    Also if you're in an area of weak signal the phone will be constantly searching to maintain it and use battery that way to. Even when the phones idle.

    All 3 off. I only turn Wi-Fi when at hardees.and doesn't really go fast down there. Bulk of it usually says the screen and os for usage. Other apps will only when I really use them. Normal to me.

    Why would recalibrate help? New batteries did the same.

    New old stock only been used for about 2 years. On att lines no weak signal at all.

    Thanks

    Good suggestion. By reducing the brightness of the display or reducing the timeout when the screen turns off can result in a large reduction of battery usage. The tool will automatically close (not delete) certain unneeded applications that may be using more battery as well.

    Already done all except reset. My brightness was always set low.

    Most already off. Timeout is set but half the time I turn off before timer.

    Is there a good way to backup apps? I don't need nothing else. Maybe on a Usb duo drive don't really want to use something like Google's way

    Recalibrating will sometimes improve or fix the issue you mentioned of not charging normally or fast draining. Some also recommend it for new batteries.

    It's easy to do and don't cost nothing other than one cycle of the battery life. Recalibrating has drastically improved the battery performance on several of my phones over the years. I don't bother with doing it once a month or twice a year as some recommend, just when the battery starts acting wonky. Recently my LG Phoenix 2 wouldn't charge past 51%. Recalibrating fixed that.

    What is really happening is calibrating the phone charge controller, charge monitoring system. The battery itself doesn't calibrate.

    Doing a factory reset on a phone has more to do with getting rid of the junk and misconfigurations that accumulate with long use than the battery. It has fixed a couple of my phones that had gotten sluggish.
