Question about Samsung SGH-E900 Cellular Phone

E900 life battery terrible short !need help

Firstly , i would like to thank you for your help . I bought an used e900 from ebay last week and it works fine and is in very good condition. The only problem i was aware of was the short life of the battery so i provided to buy two new one ( 1 normal litio 700 amph , 1 litio polymere 1500amh).

Actually, that 's was useless. Even though i charge it over 16 hours , the mobile doesn t last more of 3 hours in stand by mode.

I tried to flash up the firmware , right now i have the xxfj2 version (no relevant difference from the other one)

i turned off the bluetooth.

i turned off the edge function and set it up manual.

Network research is set to manual (my provider , wind , italian)

i even tried to reset it with the code to the original settings.

All these actions didn t give me any benefits. So i suppose there is something wrong with the bt module wich discharge the battery maybe?

I sent a mail to samsung and they told me i might probabily need to update the software. if they meant the firmware i had already done it.

i really appreciate your help.

thank you

My Blu 5.0 won't hold a charge. I charge it to full then turn it off.the next time I try to use it the battery is low. Do I need a new battery ? Is there a better battery out there?

Christine, Sounds like you may have to replace battery as it will not hold a charge. From the forums I have read through there are a lot of battery and charging issues with this phone. Some say not to let the battery fall below 40% before charging if you want the new battery to last. I did not find any retailers saying there battery would outlast the original.
Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

After updating 8.4, i can use apple music. however, it is a battery hog, just 1 hour. my battery from 100% to 40%. so terrible, how can save my iphone's battery life. help!

Hi Keri - first order of business is to turn off anything you don't need. That's not peculiar to 8.4, just general advice. For example: If you're not using blue tooth, turn it off. Likewise if you're in an area where there is no WiFi, turn that off as it will gobble up extra power looking for WiFi, more so than if it had an established lock.

One last thing would be to check for bacground apps you're running and don't need, such as weather checkers, stock checkers and so on that may be turned on. See if that helps.

Battery life

your phone should be in sleep mode if you are not using it. if it on all the time it will drain the battery real fast. Change your battery usage setting. I had the same problem.
