    My phone is still new, 4 months old. Recently, I have observed that when I lock my phone and not use it and put it it my pocket or anywhere, if I check it it would go 79% to 5%, that is just happened within 10mns. It shook me. So I went home and charged it, I also observed that it drained more if I dont use it than using it, however when it reached 4%, it was like it lasted for hour so I wonder what can I do to avoid or heal this ?

    Welcome to Android Central! Which phone? 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.

    Chek obvious first. Is your location, bluetooth and location always on. Go into wifi settings and try to stop it checking wifi all the time in tne advanced settings. Check what rogue programs you have downloaded lately. Dowload CC cleaner and do a clean of your phone. Download a really good virus checker and run a check hour phone.
