    So I have a Bold 9930 on sprint. I kept the stock os till the new yr, never had problems, battery life lasted roughly a day. When I updated to 7.1, it was all good, no major drain, til this week, two nights in a row, came off the charger at 1am, and by 10am, 15% is all that's left!!! I notice the drains were massive, and I was always on wifi.
    So I decided to give the Battery Tests in Device Analyzer a try. Came off the charge at 12am, woke up at 10am, sitting on 75% with 2.65% discharge per hour. I replied to my texts, emails, bbms, surf the web, checked banking, etc, now it's 1:50pm, battery has 65% left, 2.79% discharge... I think using this analyzer somehow saves battery life! anyone ever tried it?

    Yeah, I always have it on, my battery has never gone below 55% and i have been using it 18hours etc
    Currently the rate of discharge is 1.85%, i find it useful to know :P

    I dont have apps run in the background though

    oh oh this Analyzer is sweet! I had no idea 7.1 added all these extra diagnosis-tests and stuff. Ive been having the same issue recently, i'll take it off the charge around 5-6am, then by the time its 9-10ish its already down below 45%.. [[No complaints though, now-a-days there's an outlet every corner so its all good]]
