    When I first got this phone (about two weeks ago) I was going days without charging it. It now drops almost instantly. Please help :/

    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).

    The fact that Cell Standby is using 7% suggests that you might not have great cell signal throughout the day. It would help if you tap the battery graph there in order to get the fullscreen graph that also shows cell signal strength--does that show up on your phone? If the cell signal is often poor (evidenced by lots of red or yellow), then the phone has to work harder to latch onto the signal, which uses more battery.

    I have no idea how to pull that up but my signal is often very strong. Also my screen seems to be using so much more than everyone else with this phone. I have brightness on the lowest setting. When I first got the phone everything was fine. I went days without charging no problem, now it drops so ridiculously fast it's becoming a huge issue.

    In the screenshot from this post, tap the graph. That should bring up the full battery graph screen, with the cell signal strength bar.

    Just got this on Friday, gotta say so far the battery is on par with my S6... With doze and massive battery I was expecting much more.
