    Do you have GSAM installed? If not, install it and use it for 24 hours and post screen shots of the usage. No one hear can help you without some concrete info.

    Is it brand new?
    If so, did you read the instruction book? Specifically the bit where it tells you to charge it to full and use the phone for a few full cycles ?

    Or is it second hand with some dodgy ROM on it?

    Its actually hard to say. Battery life is so dependent on usage its hard to judge. I could get 6-7 hrs screen time out of my m7 if I turned everything off and left it play video, using it normally though I get about 3-4.

    If I was to constantly wake it up frequent and for short periods, I'd get 2-3.

    Phones take a few days to settle down.

    There are a few things you can do to help it such as let it drain to zero after a full charge, factory resets etc.

    The first thing I noticed is you don't have power savings enabled. Check the CPU Power and data connection box for sure. Vibration does the least. Check the brightness box but I find it is difficult to use the screen outside when its sunny outside. You should be getting 5-7 hours on-screen time. Also, try it without Battery Doctor. Sometimes it does more harm than good. Lastly, you need to give it at least a week to let the phone settle and see the full extent of your battery life.

    It will take a few charging cycles for the battery and the CPU to work nicely together. You should let the battery drain low and then put it on the charger. It needs long charging cycles so run it to somewhere around 20% and let it charge all the way up to to, or close to, 100. This isn't an issue w/ charging memory or anything like that. It's just an issue of getting the processor and the battery on the same page.

    Also, I see your app usage is near 50%. It would be interesting to see what apps are running. You can usually turn off the automatic sync for everything and that helps. A lot. I let Gmail sync and my photo uploads are automatic. Everything else is a manual sync, as I don't need it constantly updating.

    It's normal, you are using the phone with 5 inches screen not the one with 4 inches.

    The last thing you should do with any modern phone is let it drain completely. Keep it charged when you can and avoid full drains as much as possible. The more often you drain to very low amounts the less life the battery will have in the long run. To answer the op, give it a couple days as you are likely experiencing "new toy battery drain syndrome" which happens to many of us when we can't stop playing with our new device. If you still have battery issues after a few days repost your gsam results with maybe a second shot of the app usage screen.

    Not true.

    Don't go through FULL cycles regularly as batteries in general have a certain quantum of energy they can can give, but, unless I am mistaken, its good to let a phone battery discharge every month or so (and after a few charge cycles when new) so that the internal battery calibration is kept on track (no not the voodoo battery calibration discredited by google) and also, it gets the (static) electrons normally not used in light discharge cycles moving throughout the battery.

    I could be wrong but this is what the battery university (?) Site used to recommended.

    Please feel free to correct if this has changed!

    Cheers for knowing battery university. I was going to quote and link an article I read last year when this discussion came up on the M7 but I'm a bit busy to find it. The gist was, and many people have agreed with me, that the less often you let your battery discharge deeply the better. If you've read something more recent...?

    Install wake lock monitor as well. When I had my M7 the battery was god awful and close to yours. Good luck.

    I took my phone off my charger at 5:10, and three hours later I have sent and received five text messages and I down to 93%. Is that normal?

    Yep.

    1-2℅ drain p/h and don't forget that (iianm) the phone doesn't keep the battery at exactly 100% when charged. It cycles on and off The last 5-10℅

    A better value for your standby drain will be had if you left it for a day*....



    *imagine, lol

    I'm a pretty new M8 user and I must say I had the same "issue" during the first few days. My advice is to wait until you go through a few cycles with it before you jump to any conclusions, the battery will last way longer. I think I'm now at about 15 cycles with it, and the last recharge happened after 2 days and 1 hour of battery use (it started with ~12 hours autonomy, but the usage was more intense as well).
    Use wi-fi as often as possible (it drains the battery less than 3G/4G), activate energy saving, customize the email sync options (avoid push mail if possible - I personally use 1hour syncs), avoid live wallpapers (they drain more battery than standard ones). And if you want to protect your battery long-term, do not let it go under 20% before recharging.

    The back and forth about how to treat a battery here is ridiculous. Discharge it all the way once a month, never discharge it all the way, do small top off charges, drain it all the way and do one large charge to 100, etc, etc, etc. Quite obviously no one knows, and quite obviously is doesn't f-ing matter.
