    It's a Motorola Droid Maxx. I've had it two and a half years. Battery life has been great until now.
    If I go to settings - apps - running, I can stop some of the apps. If I remember to do that right after I turn the phone on it behaves the way I used to. If I forget the battery runs down in just a few hours even though I'm using the phone hardly at all. Why did this problem suddenly start? What can I do about it?

    Which apps. It's possible that one of them is causing the problem, maybe due to a recent update.

    It's also possible that, after 2-1/2 years, the battery is gone.

    The app that seems to be causing the most battery drain is Media. If I stop Media after I turn the phone on, battery life is as good as it used to be.
