    Default OS draining battery

    Can anybody help me, tell me what settings I can change to help with the battery drain. I've tried everything I know. Never had this problem with my Vivid.

    Seems like something different drains my battery every day. If one app seems to be draining excessively try rebooting the phone. Most of the time I think that the native battery monitor is unreliable.

    This doesn't say a whole lot outside of you've lost about a third of your battery over 5.5 hours, and you tend to make voice calls. How long have your calls been? How many? What's your cell signal strength like? This may very well be perfectly normal battery drain for your pattern of use.

    I've only made 1 call this morning and it was 15 mins long.

    Have you gone through all the default Google services/apps and fired them up/signed in at least once? Apparently some of them will run constantly in the background looking for a sync until you do. By default Google services, I'm talking Maps, G+, the Play Store, and other things that come with stock Android.

    You've had your phone on for five and a half hours and still have 67% charge, that's just about right.

    All that report tells you is the relative amount of battery each process has used. It's always going to add up to 100%

    I just thought the OS using that much was a little high. Maybe its normal, and I'll have to live with it.
