Battery dying causes application menu to reset

Have noticed everytime my phone battery dies when i switch my phone back on all of my apps and games that i had neatly sorted into folders and such have been seperated again? Is this happening to anyone else or does anyone no a solution as its rather frustrating.

You should never let a lithium ion battery die! Sad.gif

 

 

As for the Folder issue. I am running a Custom Rom on my SGS which mimics the TouchWiz 4 Launcher.

I tried to reproduce the problem you encountered and had the same result by restarting the Phone by holding the power button to force a restart.

As you said, Apps had jumped out of the Folder and one of the folders was filled with apps that I hadn't put in there!

Perhaps a Bug with TouchWiz 4? Hmmm.gif

You can shorten the life of this type of battery by constantly draining it until the phone switches off!

 

When the battery reaches approx' 20% you should get a warning message to plug the phone in. Likewise when the phone is charged to 100% you will get a message to unplug the phone. Lithium ion batteries are best suited to "Top Up" charging.

Re: Battery dying causes application menu to reset

Ah i wasnt aware of that i just assumed because of all the tips on battery life that recommend discharging the battery fully then to fully charge it for a longer life that it wasnt an issue?
