T Voice excess battery usage on Samsung S5?

I've installed T Voice, it seems to work fine, a good idea.

BUT, my Samsung S5 just popped up a message telling me that the T Voice app was using an excessive amount of my battery power, so I've stopped it for the moment.

Is it just poorly designed, or is there something I (or Telstra) can do to get it to play nicely?



Was this helpful?

  • Yes it was, thank you
  • No, I still need help

Re: T Voice excess battery usage on Samsung S5?

Good morning,

Your T Voice issue is reliant  on your battery,

I would condition your battery  by doing 10  full discharges to self switch  off point, and then getting in the habit of fully discharging it at least once a week as I do with Samsung batteries in 3 Samsung smartphones,...though all my Samsungs up to Note 4 edge have removable batteries which I also rotate with spares once a month.


Whilst Lithiium batters are allegedly memory free, that is not always the case, and even Apple suggest fully discharging


I would expect better battery performance after that process.


You may consider doing a reliable data back up and re-setting to factory settings and a fresh re-install, in case you have any software corruption, which can surruptitionally  build up over time.

If I have helped you, a "Like" would be appreciated.
