Do Smart phones come in here?

I just wonder every night why my smart phone Galaxy Ace 3 needs recharging completely every night even if I have only used it for a few texts?

Could be a million reasons.

Bluetooth, GPS turned on when not needed.
Screen brightness too high.
Apps in the background using battery.
The battery itself could need replacing.
Phone could need a reset.

Most cheaper smartphones need charging every night anyway (even some of the high-end phones do). If it lasts you through the day I wouldn't worry.

Not a cheap one - nearly $400. will take it in to Telecom I think. Thanks for answering anyway.

The Ace 3 is worth about $190? At PB Tech at least.

Anyways, take it to Spark, they might reset it for you.

I paid $179 for mine. Depending on what I am doing mine will go for a few days before charging. But I don't use a lot of data and I mainly text and make short calls. But I see it needs charging again but that was because I had a long conversation with my teenager who is currently at Uni.

Do you leave wifi or mobile data on as they use up alot of power just to maintain signal strength
