    I got the phone 3 days ago, I have never had a smart phone before. At full charge it lasts about 3-4 hours if I am using it (Just for messaging) and when I don't use it, it lasts maybe 5 hours. I always close all applications, location & bluetooth are off and the screen brightness is always at 0% (I prefer it like that). Is something wrong with the phone? My friend said her LG G3 lasted at least 1 day when it was fully charged. I don't do anything on it except text messaging and Snapchat, sometimes Instagram or Facebook but not that much. It still drains when I don't touch it for hours.

    Let the phone get down to about 30%, then check the battery statistics to see what apps are using the most power.
    / settings / general / battery / battery usage /

    That big beautiful screen is going to suck up lots of power, especially for games and videos.

    Hello, it is the original poster.
    It says that screen uses 29%, snapchat uses 23% and the rest are:
    mm-qcamera-daemon (I assume that is the camera??) - 12%
    Android OS - 8%
    Phone Idle - 7%
    Android system - 4%
    Mediaserver - 4%
    LG Keyboard - 3%
    Cell standby - 2%
    Instagram - 1%

    For example, I took 5 pictures earlier, so why would 5 pictures drain 12% of my battery?
    Is it normal that the battery will drain so fast based on these statistics?

    The screen at 29% seems normal.

    Hard to say if the snapchat at 23% is normal or not.
    Are you using mostly wifi or mobile data? If mobile data, how good is your cellular signal strength?
