    My LG G5 phone seems to be draining battery rapidly even at night when I don't use it for 8 or 9 hours, the battery drains from 100& to 68%. I have disabled Blue Tooth scan, turned the brightness down to 40%, turned off vibration. I have looked at the apps in Application Manager to see which are using battery and all say "0%" battery use since last charge. What else should I be doing?

    Welcome to Android Central! 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.

    One of your apps is causing the drain which you won't know which until you use the adb commands in the gsam battery app to enable it to see each app separately

    Also noticed that when plugged in to charge the app usage is 31% compared to 81% when up plugged.

    It doesn't matter that much, but you had Bluetooth turned on for almost half an hour, and radios do use a bit of power. But I'd suspect that it's just time to replace the battery.
