    Holy moly. How's the cell signal? Do your battery stats report much time without signal?

    You nearly disabled everything... How can battery be draining except for low signal?

    zero issues with signal. always connected. why would you say that?

    Poor or absent cell signal is always something to consider as a cause of battery drain, so it was worth asking.

    Could you post screen shots of the battery stats, please? And the graph?

    I close everything. It opens up when I need it.

    I saw improvement in battery by using root uninstaller to freeze vzw contacts backup. And I stopped using greenify and condi.

    i happen to notice that my phone was somehow running in global which can chew up battery life. I've switched it back to cdma/LTE. hopefully that should help.

    That shouldn't make a difference (unless you travel out of the country or live near the border.) I'd be interested to see if you notice a difference, but I'm betting that your phone is running 100% LTE/CDMA now anyway. Unless you've seen the message asking you to connect to a GSM network because CDMA cannot be found, it should be exactly the same.

    I remember that it was an issue on the Droid 3. Global would drain more on the battery than CDMA. I would like to think that this is worked out now and it is a non-issue, but I have no confirmation.

    I'm not noticing a difference with global vs. regular. I downloaded Better Battery Stats but since my phone isnt rooted i get no details. A waste of money.
