    It shows a bunch of battery stats and it's easy to read and understand.
    I'm not too sure about that specific case compatibility but I do have a glass screen protector and it works perfectly with my tpu case.

    I believe that's just the amount of current your phone is using from the battery at that exact time. So it'll change every time you refresh because its constantly pulling different amounts of current.

    I don't think any problem can happen, as those apps are only power consumption monitors.

    In 7 hours you used only 8% of the battery, that is either amazing or seriously inaccurate.

    7 mins of screen on time, so it's normal. Actually it should be under 1%/hr at that rate of usage

    That explains the short time of screen usage lol so it is actually not cool to lose 8% of M8's charge while you are sleeping.

    So you could activate the Extreme Power Saving mode before going to sleep and see if it would make any difference.

    Note:-
    Don't charge your M8 with any saving mode activated, before charging always make sure to disable power saving.

    I charged it again so I can use it from 100% throughout today and see the results.

    Its reporting that 60% of your battery has been consumed by aaps. Click on the > next to the 60% to see which apps are using up most of your battery, and if you don't use them force stop them, clear their cache, and if you never plan to use them disable them (if given the option).

    Those app usages look pretty normal. If you use all of the 1% and above leave them as is, but if you don't use some of the non-system apps (facebook or tapatalk for example) you could disable them and get a few % back. Disabling apps that account for 5% of your battery would make it last 5% longer...
    Switching from Dalvik (which you're probably using as your runtime engine) to ART could drop your Android Kernel from 11.3% to ~7.3%, and your Android system from 8.6% to ~4.3% potentially, but its not a change you have to make if you don't want to. Changing your screen settings (brightness, timeout, etc) could take your screen on time from the estimated 2.5 hours and bump it up to somewhere in the 4-5 hour range.
    You may also be able to squeeze out a bit more time by enabling some of the power saving options (for things like location) if you haven't already.

    Its the runtime system for how the OS handles apps. The way Dalvik works is that each time you use an app it expands (uncompress) the file, and then shrinks it back after use. It takes time, resources, and battery to do that every time. ART converts files so that they are uncompressed (making file size slightly larger), but speeds up applications opening, speeds up phone booting, and saves battery.
    You can enable it by going into your phone's about settings, and clicking on the build number seven times to enable developer mode where you can then change the runtime. If you determine you don't like ART you can always go back and re-enable Dalvik.

    Here is a walk-through on enabling ART with pictures and additional details about how ART differs from Dalvik:
