    Angry G2 Battery Issues

    Hello my fellow G2 users! Since i got my hands on this phone,i'm reading user reviews relentlessly. I've seen that almost everyone using this phone is very satisfied with the battery and they can see up to 8 hours of screen time,and they charge their phones every 2 days. Here's some screenshots for you It drains vast amounts of battery even i'm only using whatsapp.
    Bluetooth,GPS,NFC,all this was stuff off EXCEPT Mobile Data and Sync. Mobile Data was On all day.
    Screen timeout set to 2min.
    The "Screenshot_2014-01-30-10-49-34.png" screenshot is different,because i've charged my phone up to 100 and left it on table to see what caused wakelock-it drains nearly 30% in one night! (when mobile data is on,if mobile data is off there's no problem with battery drain at night)
    Google Drive

    I've 22 screenshots,so sorry for not putting them one by one

    Seems most of your battery is consumed from the screen being on. You also have sot of 4 hrs. Are you playing games on it?

    If mobile data is sucking power throughout the night it might indicate that you're in a poor 3G/4G signal area causing the mobile radio to ramp up power to stay connected.

    Try switching to 3G and see if that helps overnight.

    Looks like the screen is taking up most of the power. Signal strength on 4G looks good so its doubtful that a poor signal is causing the problem.

    Looks like an app called Noom Walk is using a lot of cycles.

    Set screeen brightness to auto and about 48%. I leave mine there and use about 4 hrs of screen time a day and finish the day with about 75% battery left. I can regularly go 2+ days on a charge. I'm in a fair/good 4G area.

    8 hours screen time? I get 6 or so, debloated and google now turned off. I think 8 is a stretch.

    It's definitely possible to get 6-8 hrs. Screen on time.

    @Brandon Shea @TNCattleDog
    My brightness is always about 30-35% but no auto
    Noom walk is a pedometer app and doesn't cause any wakelock problems while data is off,nor it uses lots of battery (as seen on GSam Battery Monitor results)
    BTW I live in Turkey so we don't have 4G here yet,mobile data is HSPA
    I really envy you guys seeing 2 days,6-7 hrs of screen time with one charge (
    @truthteller10
    I don't think it has horrible battery.. Its battery is decent compared to other phones anyway?

    Well I'll have to concur with the ones charged with lying. Bought my daughter the G2 at the beginning at January and the battery life is amazing. 6-8hrs on screen is typical. It don't even drop off 100% after an hours use

    In fact the phenomenal battery life has me considering leaving HTC. My past 5 phones have been Htc

    Let's keep on-topic. Responding to someone trolling the thread just gives them the attention they crave so much. If you see a post that is inappropriate, just report the post instead of responding.

    Thread has been cleaned up.

    Ahh battery issues. They never end. There's so many variables that it actually hurts my brain to look through battery stat screen shots these days.

    It does seem like a wakelock problem to me. According to BBS you have 2 hours of Awake when the screen is off. At first glance, that's far too much over a 13 hour period. I would first suggest you uninstall Facebook and see if things improve. Or at least Greenify it. I don't know if things have changed, but the FB app is a notorious battery offender. I barely use FB nowadays, but when I do, I use the mobile website and run it in a browser.

    Try using CPU Spy. This will show the different speeds your processor is using. When you set your phone down with screen off it should go to "Deep Sleep" and use very little battery.

    If you see the "Deep Sleep" as a very low percentage, something good is keeping your phone awake (and thus using battery faster).

    @JayWill Wakelock problem is another problem to me. When mobile data is on,phone consumes 30-35% battery at night (when i'm sleeping)
    My main problem is,other users can see up to 5-6hrs of screen time while I simply can't. And yes,facebook is a battery drainer,i tried logging off and using the phone like that for a day,didn't change anything much.
    Plus,a question: If facebook drained much battery,shouldn't I be able to see it in Battery Monitor?
    Btw,phone not rooted.
    Thanks for help!!!
    @Mikey47 BBS is showing cpu speeds already?

    What is causing the most battery drain? A screen shot from a battery monitoring app would be useful.
