    Alright, so I have a Samsung galaxy tab pro 8.4 and I absolutely love it. I've had it for almost a year now, and its amazing. However, just recently (either that or I've just not bothered to look before) my screen started taking up almost 60% of my battery life! Also, when I shut it off (all the way) before I go to sleep at night, let's say it's at 100%. I'll wake up and it'll be at 29%!
    Now, I've heard that charging anything for extended periods of time is bad for the battery. Is this true?

    Welcome to the forums. Is there anyway you can attach a screenshot? Draining 70% in say 7 hours is quite high, and I would like to see the battery stats please.

    Did you do the reboot, or did the device do it by itself? Any system updates recently?

    Something to keep in mind is the screen drain is 58% of what has been drained. So, 100-35 (% remaining) = 65. 65 x 0.58 = 37% of the 65% battery drain is attributed to the screen.

    The screen is usually the biggest consumer of the battery anyway.

    Can you post a screenshot of the graph, too? Click on it and take that screenshot. (Sorry, I meant to put that in my first reply)

    Yes, I have restarted my tablet before. Actually, I think that's about when my battery started doing this...
    Anyways here's the graph. And thanks for the welcoming! Sorry, didn't say anything about that before.

    The battery may be going bad. Have you done a reset?
