    Hello, I've had this problem for a while now, without charge, the battery begins to drop drastically around 1 % per 4-5 mins usually. When I play games.... The battery starts to fall even quicker. Battery saves doesn't help much, I have lowest possible screen brightness on (I up it only when I go to town) please help me.
    Thanks.

    Welcome to Android Central! Which phone? Show us some battery stats. Charge up to 100%, then let it drain to 20-30% with normal usage, without charging in between. Then show us:

    1. The main Settings>Battery screen.
    2. The fullscreen battery graph screen (which shows Awake time and Cell Signal Strength).
    3. The Screen category (to see total Screen On time).
    4. The Cell Standby category, if present (to see Time Without Signal).

    You might have to install a 3rd party battery monitor, like GSam Battery Monitor, to get the Cell Signal Strength graph.

    It would actually help if you showed us the stats as I mentioned in my previous link -- charge up to 100%, then use it as you normally would until the battery is down to around 20%. Then show us the stats. It'd also be good to see the total screen-on time.

    Your phone says its active the entire time with the screen on. And looks like you were playing a game. What exactly did you expect? You also have to take into account the battery size.

    It's still not normal for the battery to be draining that fast.

    Depends entirely on your connection, brightness, battery size and the games you play. For example, War Robots on 50% brightness will drain my S7Edge 3500mah battery from 100 to zero in 4 hrs. But with Asphalt on 50% it can go 8hrs.

    So what's your phone?

    Also, are you in an area where there is no 4G, or did you change the network preference settings to 3G only? If 4G signal is really weak, and it's forcing the phone to 3G, that might also contribute.
