    The general consensus is GSam Battery Monitor. It can be kinda hard to read, though, but it gives you a very accurate picture of who's doing what. Bear in mind that this is NOT battery consumption, is processing cycles and wake locks, so by general rule of thumb, if it's keeping your device awake or if it's doing something in the background it only follows that it's also consuming battery, but in some cases, that's not it (ten seconds of HEAVY processing can consume more battery than 15 minutes of light activity, and yet the latter will show up on top). It's a good guideline, just not always the real answer. You still have to sip through the info to get there.

    Also run Wakelock Detector to see what's keeping your phone awake and Greenify to hibernate the apps that do. (Don't hibernate apps like Phnone or your email app, or they won't receive anything unless you're running them.)

    If you look at the battery grapph in Settings, then tap the graph you'll get another page. At the bottom of that graph are a few lines. One of them is Awake. It should be almost completely black, except for times you were using the phone. Greenify will make it more black, making the phone use less battery. (It uses less when it's asleep than when it's awake.)
