    Yes, Yes, Yes even for the un-advanced user like myself, I know turning down the screen, closing unused apps etc helps battery life. But in last week and more so 2 days my battery has almost gone on strike!
    I tried to reset the battery, by draining it, taking it out and then hitting 100% - I only got to 83%, went in like 90 minutes when on net etc.
    So I downloaded that GS battery thing for it to say that something like 50% of use was OS system / android etc, then screen was about 40% and so on. I factory reset my phone, then when I restarted it I refused all of the "Can google use your data" etc, (which was bought 1 year ago on Kitkat, then update to Lollipop about Feb time) everything has been fine until now.
    My charge was 100% at say 12am, I went to bed at 12.45am on 83% (not on it, just wifi on), then Wifi off, 4g off, all recent applications closed. At 08.45am it was on 63% I went for a *** in the garden and tried to look on wifi on my phone (with screen at 45% and usually go on wifi in garden no issues) and by 09.30am the charge was down to 15%??!!
    I have another battery but I know that has been draining faster than usual. No new apps or anything, just a sudden drain. I have removed the battery again this morning, after running it down (In fact it was plugged in to the laptop to transfer files and was still running down while charging)

    Put on charge this morning (while off) at 09.30hrs, buy 10.30am it was on 80% and then at 10.50am it had dropped to 73%. Now at 11.20am it's back up to 77%

    What the hell is going on????? Like I said, I changed batteries as I think the last one was flagging, both batteries are about 6 months old.

    Cheers
