    Purchased a new LG G4 from Sprint last week. Been AOK until today...Fully charged it last night, placed it bedside operating on battery all night, had a dead device this AM. I reseated the battery, it's operational again. Problems already? Really?? Please suggest/advise. Thank you.

    I'd keep an eye on it. Seems odd.

    When it was dead you reseated the battery and it worked, or you had to recharge and the battery was empty? Can you recreate the problem?

    Did you install an app recently? Maybe it ran rouge and rapidly depleted your battery while you slept?

    Possibly a problem with losing signal during the overnight hours and draining the battery trying to re-establish. I leave my G4 on overnight and only lose about 3-6% of my battery. Much better than my S4 was in that regard.

    I actually tested this myself last night as I usually leave my phone on charge overnight. It was 97% at 11:30pm, at 7:30 it was 92%. Not bad. Wifi on, no bluetooth.

    My phone was garbage day one, quit on me by 6:00pm. Yesterday it made it to bedtime at 10:00 with 13%. Today it's at 35% coming up to 10:00...no changes, no location differences, each day in a LOUSY cell phone area.

    Really starting to like this phone.

    The times I have had an issue like this. (battery drain for no reason) typically occurs due to one of the following.
    1 the phone trying to secure a data connection with a weak signal. Both WiFi and carrier have caused this.
    -For this I will turn off the data connection causing the issue. Until I get to a place with a solid connection.
    2previous opened app still running in the back ground
    -for this I go to "recents" and clear all.

    It took me 3 full charges to start seeing decent battery life. I thought maybe it was a one-off, but I just got the LG power pack thingy (the mini charger case which charges a spare battery outside of the phone). I charged the spare up, and used it yesterday, and it plummeted just like the original battery did at first. Today it's near-normal.

    There definitely seems to be something to be said for 'Running-In' a new battery.... although technically this shouldn't be the case.

    I would suspect that something is causing a wake lock. I would try to fully charge the phone and let it sit for a few hours and run wakelock Detector. I posted how to use it on the g4 here :
