    Default A lil help please?

    Ok.....so I also have a battery issue. In a lil over 7 hours, my phone is down to 5%. I can never get thru my work day without recharging and will little or moderate use. I've attached a few pics to show my rapid decline today. I'm not rooted and have tried just about every thing I've seen in other posts without any luck. Can someone help me out with this? Is there something I'm missing?

    From your screenshots it looks like the weak cell signal while you're at work could be a big cause of the drain.

    You also might consider getting a new battery.

    couple things that causing your issue.
    1- bad signal just like Almeuit said.
    2- you have almost every thing running from nfc to bluetooth and i'm expecting you have all the eye tracking thingy running as well!!
    2- Your apps hold your phone awake for more than 2 hours which is alot compare to your 7 hours use.

    Get an app called "Greenify" it will do you more things with root. The app basically put the selected apps into sleep once you send them the to the background such as game and other social media apps. But once you select the app, you won't receive any notification from it and if you greenify a widget it will pause until you click it.

    I use the app and I highly recommend it. If you don't know which app is draining your battery, you can greenify all the apps that you don't need to receive notification from or have it on auto sync until you open it.

    If your employer has wifi, going on wifi at work, will help. I agree with Almeuit and Yathani, the wakelocks are killing you, Greenify is a great app, not sure if it will run without root, but if it will, it would help. Unless you use services (NFC, bluetooth, etc) turn them off. You can also turn off Apps that you dont use (for example unless you use SVoice, I would turn it off.

    Thanks for the assistance. I'll probably start with getting another battery. I didn't know the NFC being on made a difference but I keep my bluetooth on because I have a galaxy gear 2 watch.

    Greenify is suppose to work without root as well.

    Download wake lock detector and see which apps are keeping your phone awake then use Greenify to put them to sleep. I found facebook was draining my battery so I Greenified it and since then I get up to 6 hours screen on time. Give it a try.

    I just looked into wake lock and since KK it says it needs root access.
