    do you know how to look at the battery history, tap the graph at the top of the screen (the one you posted) it should show you screen time and wake time.

    Are you running any battery saving apps? Those usually don't help, and can sometimes cause crazy things to happen

    I'd suggest doing a factory reset... if that doesn't help, you can always root and rom.. plenty of Roms that get great battery life

    So that's why my 4.2.2 ROM has good battery life.

    The amount of wake locks is not the reason why his battery is tanking like this...there's barely any wake locks when the screen is off

    I literally just joined this forums to post up a topic about this. Like your history picture, I have MULTIPLE graphs that look like yours. I have a few where it jumps from literally 40% to 0%. I've narrowed it down to having something to do with the Wi-Fi connecting and disconnecting and when it does that, something in the phone holds back all of my text messages and ABSOLUTELY DEMOLISHES the battery life. I literally just missed a few important text messages because of this and this is a re-occuring problem that is really getting me upset.

    I'm going to try to make a detailed post describing all this garbage and see what I can do about this. My phone is also stock, I've modified nothing to it since the day I got it.

    Do you guys have "best Wi-Fi performance" enabled? If so, disable it..it is known to cause issues (although I doubt this is the culprit for instant drain)

    Yes, the photos, as printed, are very pixelated. The printer machine did give a warning about resolution before giving the final print option, and I was using the "print in minutes" rather than one hour option at the retailer, but that shouldn't matter. Nor should the type of cord (the mini with a 6 foot wire to the usp port). These were the original photos taken with the camera on highest resolution too, not downloaded photos that have been resized to text or load onto the net. Any ideas? I do not have my manual for the phone, but it would seem that to have printed them at all, I didn't do that wrong.

    I went into my options to see if I had that and I couldn't find that in the settings menu or under Wi-Fi. :/

    Mine was never enabled. My battery went back to normal the last couple days. Not sure what it was that was causing to drain so fast. I just unlocked and rooted. Installing my first ROM at the moment. Hope this goes well. Using the CM10.1 ROM.

    I really like the Vanilla OS so I wasn't interested in Viper but thanks for the tip. Maybe I'll give the Jellybam a try, looked pretty nice.

    I didn't get even 8 hrs of battery with my wi fi on with my Intl One X on ICS. After JB I started getting 20-22 hours. I'd suggest you root it and install a JB custom ROM. It's worth it. I've been running Cyanogenmod and I can't see myself going back to Sense ROMs ever.
