started noticing yesterday that my battery was at 64% and within an hour the battery was completely dead.  I looked in the battery saver app and it told me that it looked like nothing had used the battery and it could not figure it out.

 

I did a full power cycle of the phone and then fully charged it last night so hopefully i will figure out what happened to it.

My point is I don't ####ing care about android. I used the wordflow and I love it. But I think there are improvements that needs to be made.


Then you might consider NOT citing articles about Android.

You believe continuous shape-writing would be an improvement. As long as I'm not required to slide over space to separate words I have no problem with your request. I just don't think it's practical and I don't see its absence as a "major issue".

And stating that is not against the forum rules.

As our moderator pointed out, let's be civil, ok?

I didn't cite android until you mentioned world record (like that means anything lol) and posted a snarky comment [ http://www.neowin.ne...ost&p=596403793 ]. Yeah, stating it not against the forum rules; neither being snarky I guess.

May be tell that to yourself first.

It is IE and this problem is not WP8.1's. It has been there since first WP8. Something would get "stuck" in IE and keep draining battery even if you close tab and close the IE app. Nothing can stop it except a power cycle.

 

MS still didn't fix this; really disappointing.

the wifi locking up like in the image and the phone randomly restarting or crashing(refusing to wake up) is getting annoying. I've got an HTC 8XT. Will i be able to get HTC's official build when it comes out ?

We obviously have different definitions of snarky and civility. Sorry you think the new keyboard has "major issues". I hope Microsoft eventually makes one you approve of.
