    Default BATTERY LIFE PROBLEM: Screen on lowest brightness taking up 60% battery app usage 40%

    I have my screen on lowest brightness, use internet and games for 1 hour 30 minutes each day and my phone idles for about 3/4 of the day. Goes down at least 2 percent every 3-5 minutes? Is this normal? Help! Ps only have wifi mobile data sync and power save on.

    Not normal, you might have a defective battery/phone or something is eating up your battery. Try a factory reset or downloading an app called Wakelock detector. A wakelock keeps your phone from going to sleep ans it kills your battery.

    Also, how is the coverage in your area? If you have low signal it could cause your battery to drain faster. I can get from 4-5 hours of screen time in a day on my S4 so I'm thinking your phone is doing something wrong.

    That would suck, my phone on lowest brightness uses 60+% of the battery but I can get 4-6 hours depending on my usage. I got 5 and 2 minutes yesterday and I'm on pace for 5 and a half or about that today. I would recommend you download Juice Defender, just started using it and it increased my screen time by about an hour.

    I tried wakelock detector. Nothing important is going on in the backround...

    Make sure you have the system processes turned on to see if its a rogue system app.

    Google+ is 18 minutes 37 seconds on cpu wakelock. Also on wakelock triggers google search is 7 times. Is this good or bad, none of this makes sense to me.

    Sent from my red s4 with horrid battery life. Want a screenshot, how do I show you? You guys might understand better with a screenshot.
