Hi, I have had a Samsung sii for a year and had avg mobilation on it almost since day 1, working fine I presume. A couple of days back the phone started to drain battery at an enormous rate. Previously I could get 2 days out of it using the extended battery. Suddenly it began to drain power and lasts 6 to 8 hours only. Looking at the power manager avg is now using in excess of 50% of the power, whereas it used to be just a few %. The phone was a little warm to the touch.

It is the latest avg version 3.2.0.770. It's the standard version of android (4.04) on the GTE 19100 hardware. I checked on the market and it is the latest version of avg and just in case uninstalled avg and then installed again.

Any idea what happened? I presume not a slow DOS attack :wink:

Thanks

Hi kretep,

Is the issue resolved after reinstalling the AVG for Android? I recommend contacting AVG for Android specialists directly through the AVG program >> Menu >> Help >> Contact Us form to provide them with more detailed information about your device and issue.

Thanks.
