    My G3 lost 47% battery overnight to mostly Phone Idle and Android OS.

    How can I fix that? On Sprint & still running the ZV4 update on Android 4.4.2 which I don't think is the latest...

    Help!

    Thanks...

    Have you tried a reboot? Might just be a stuck app.

    Phone idle is good, but Android OS isn't. Chances are there is an app that is doing it but it's getting reported as Android OS and being lumped in.

    If a reboot doesn't fix it, when did this start? What have you recently installed? Work backwards.

    I had a very similar experience when I first got the phone. Tried everything with nothing working. Finally did a factory reset and that solved the problem. Could go overnight with virtually no battery drain. That lasted for about two months. Unfortunately over the last few weeks it is reverting back and I am thinking I might need to factory reset again. PITA

    My Lumia 930 once went from 100% to 3% overnight, powered itself off to protect the battery. I think it was a stuck app of a freak kind that I'd unwittingly created. How I laughed.

    Try turning your WiFi off at night. Prolongs life on my two android pads and lg g3.

    I actually find that keeping WiFi on increases my battery life, due to where I live.

    This heavily depends on how strong your wifi or 3g/4g signal is. If you have a weak 3g/4g signal in your house, it is best to keep WiFi on at all times, as it will take considerably more power to hold a weak signal than it does when trying to hold a strong signal.

    If you don't need data over night, just disable it. Tasker handles it for me.
