    OK, so I'm curious about something here. When I got into work tonight my phone was it 95 percent battery and not even eight and a half hours later I'm down to 25 percent battery that played with it and a little bit at work but the screen is taking a living beside battery my depth of brightness is off and then displays on. Is that a bad combination because I want to use both but I'm wondering what the heck is draining my battery. Here's a screenshot. Any help would be appreciated thank you.screen brightness-uploadfromtaptalk1439719549809.jpg

    as a test for a few days do this -

    1. turn down your screen brightness level to the lowest that is acceptable to you.
    2. turn off Ambient Display.

    see what results you get with that and fine tune and tweak it from there.

    good luck.

    Now, in order to see my new notifications on my lock screen though I would have to hit the power button in addition to having the hidden LED notification light after rooting but still I love and in display the really use that much battery? I'm willing to try it if it'll help. The one thing I didn't realize last night at work was I did use google play music a lot more than I normally do which probably contributed to the over usage of the battery but I was just wondering in general. I do love ambient display for my new notifications but I guess I can always give a shot though.

    8. Turn Off Vibrate on Touch for Display, Keyboard, etc.
    9. Turn Off Touch Sounds and Unlock Sounds.
    10. Turn Off Ambient Display/Active Display Notifications if you don't need it.
    11. Don't use a Live Wallpaper. Use a dark wallpaper if possible.
    12. Set Display Sleep Setting to 2 Minutes or Less.
    13. WIFI Settings - Advanced -
    a. Network Notification - Set as OFF.
    b. Scanning Always Available - Set as OFF.
    c. Keep WIFI on during Sleep - Set as ALWAYS if you regularly use
    WIFI. OK to keep WIFI on if you regularly use it.
    14. Turn Off Always Vibrate in Gmail/Email.
    15. Be careful of using too many Live Widgets and what/how often they sync.
    16. Set MS Exchange Sync at 30 Days or Less if you use it.
    17. Do NOT use a Task Killer App or Battery Saver App.
    18. Uninstall ALL Apps that you never use. If you haven't used an
    App in one month, uninstall it.
    19. Reboot your phone at least once a month.
    20. Wipe Cache Partition at least once a quarter or after every OS Update.
    21. Consider a Factory Data Reset with a manual re-sync, manual
    reinstall of all data and Apps after every major OS Letter Update.
    Make sure that all of your data is first backed up to Google and
    Dropbox, etc.

    "I SUFFER NO HARDSHIPS DOING THIS" - this means that i personally am
    giving up NOTHING with these tips. i'm not giving up any features.
    there are no tradeoffs for me. a tradeoff or a hardship would be to
    turn off PUSH email or use AIRPLANE mode during the day etc.

    you have to find your own balance and the tips list is a start but you
    must come to your own conclusion as to what's important. it's personal
    preference but these are not a big deal to me at all as they do not
    affect the function or operation of my phone. these tips do not
    deteriorate my experience.

    you don't HAVE TO do anything. the point is you if you want to
    MAXIMIZE battery life you can turn things off that you aren't using.
    it only makes sense. there is a FINITE amount of juice in ANY
    battery. you choose how you want to spend that juice. by default most
    of these devices have every feature set as ON whether you use them or
    not. i prefer to change the settings in my phone to only use those
    features that i personally use and need so i can maximize battery
    life. i don't leave all the lights and TVs on in my house 24/7 - i
    turn them on when i need them. i'm not giving anything up. my phone
    does everything exactly like i want it to. i'm not missing out on
    anything. it's no hardship for me. it's life. life is a delicate
    balance. it's up to you to find that balance.

    Honestly, I know your battery saving tips list for that stuff even on my phone is done. I've also turned off ambient display so all of that you again soon as to this I notice a difference or not because a lot of other people are also tell me about the ambient display settings. My brightness is low and at an acceptable level excetera excetera excetera vibrate features are turned off and everything else is good on my ohone.
