    i got the xiaomi mi3 td 2days ago and until now its really awesome i can even use my network (austria) the only problem is that the battery drains really fast it lasts about 5hours in use i expected much more .. could it be that i use a wrong charger,i use the one from my old samsung galaxy s1
    I thought that there would be a problem with the display (like in screenshot) so
    I ve turned down the brightness andswitched to the conserve mode but it doesnt really help :( Pls help me this is really annoying me

    5hour is too short . What ROM version are you using?

    hmm, your screenshot shows that you're 7h and 26m on battery and have 80% power left. that's not so bad.
    your screenshot also shows that more than 50% of the power was consumed by the screen, which means that you're using the phone with screen on. These big displays drain the battery very fast.
    I have the Mi3 WCDMA (also in Austria) and compared to the Mi2 the Mi3 endurance is quite short.
    Playing around with a new phone always drains the battery and new batteries need a few loading-cycles to reach full performance.

    what's wrong with the xiaomi charger? I'm using it, works like a charm.

    I charged the phone to 100% and after 1 1/2 hours it was only 80% a friend of mine has the lg g2 (with nearly same battery as mi3) After 2 hours he has 90% and i have 70% ....

    There must be some kind of error in your phone. Did you check which component uses the most battery? Mine m3 lasts at least a day on a battery

    Use wake lock detector from the play store to see what's keeping your phone awake

    What about brightness levels and what power mode are you using?

    Same as me, on Nexus 4. Phone was charged 100% at 7 AM and at 12:00 the battery has 43%. The screen was used just 1 hour (while commuting and reading RSS feeds). Also, I installed Juice Defender with "Balanced" profile. I think there's a lot of work on this ROM.

    I think it is broken, I would give you 250€ for it. DUDE there is some App that kills your battery, the Rom, or just Reset it.

    Some app really solved this mysterios problem now the display is just using 10% instead of 70% ^^ for all who experience same problems install "battery repair" app from goole play .. i didnt believe that some crap like this would be working xD

    Nice try! Please tell me which one of "Battery Repair"? That created by Ynfo.Apps? Because in Google Play are tens of apps with this name. Thanks for you tip!

    I think it not so bad with battery holding on this phone
    If I'll turn off WiFi or 3g I can take it to 4-5 days
