    Default Dropbox and lookout draining battery life why?





    Both are system level apps (lookout might be for t-mobile variant system app) and I closed them and still using that much. I don't have photos needed to be backed up since I haven't taken any at all today and Idk about lookout is doing

    I had the same problem with Lookout. I just disabled it. Don't see that it's that much of a benefit.

    The main reason I ask is because the premium version has a full phone backup and if it was toggled.. It could be backing up your phone in the background and draining battery. Especially since the wifi connection looks active in your screenshot .

    So how's it been since you rebooted your phone? I too am using the paid version (via Jump/Tmobile) but also had it when I was on Verizon. Never really had any battery issues using it. I can't speak for Dropbox because I don't use it.

    My AT&T Note 3 came with Lookout but I really don't know if it's a premium one or not. When I seen the thing with over 30% of my battery usage, I shut it down.

    It isn't premium unless you pay for it. With t-mobile jump program it also includes mobile insurance + lookout premium

    Do you have scheduled scans set up? If so, turn them off. I think scheduled scans are useless if Lookout already scans an app prior to installation. An app won't suddenly become malware after being scanned as safe.

    The other thing to check is what percent of battery does Lookout use when the battery is down to 20-30%. Is it still high? If you just turned your phone on, the high usage you're seeing might be from an initial scheduled scan. As the day wears on, you would hopefully see the percentage go down (unless it's scheduled to scan very frequently).
