    Can someone please interpret this for me? I got this phone because of all the great stories I've heard about. I've had mine for a few days and have not been impressed.

    What am I missing? Thanks in advance.

    Two things. First, your signal isn't good. That will drain a battery. Second, you have over 12 hours of active use and are on pace for almost 17 hours of active use. That's actually incredible battery life, but indicates you have something running in the background while your screen is off. Notice you only have 3 hours SOT, which means your phone has worked for over 9 hours with the screen off.

    Your phone should be going into Doze mode which isn't the case based on your battery history. You should see a nice flat line at some point and it's just not there. A rogue app is definitely keeping the phone awake, possibly Facebook as it's known to cause battery issues on Android. I would check on what apps you have syncing too. There may be a process that's hung up which has happened to me in the past. As much of a pain it came be, try a factory reset and start from scratch. The battery life is ridiculous on this phone and you should be getting far better results than what you've experienced. Keep us posted.

    Thanks. I'd like to exhaust all options prior to doing a factory reset, as I only got it less than a week ago.

    Anything else I can try? I appreciate the help.

    ...Maybe disabling apps or something?

    One issue is right there in your third screenshot: the Facebook app. It's a known battery killer, and there are many better alternative apps out there for Facebook if you don't want to use your mobile browser.

    Other than that, what other people have said here is spot on.

    I do pretty much the same tasks on my phone each day. Last night, before putting the phone on charge for the night, I turned off Bluetooth, powered down the phone and turned it back on. It then went on the charger overnight. Bluetooth was not turned on, at all.

    Facebook, one of worst apps for battery life. Probably keeping your phone awake. You can try Facebook through your browser or a wrap app like Swipe.

    It's either my network coverage at work or Bluetooth. All weekend, it's been great. BT was off and I had steady coverage.

    What bt devices do you have? I have a Pebble all the time plus either bt headphones, my car or echo connected. Generally BT usage is 1-2%.

    My typical end-of-day is 4hrs screen on and @60% battery remaining.

    Blue Parrot XT-350. Something is definitely not right with the battery life I'm getting on this phone.

    Did you get this figured out? I was wondering if you were one of the people hit by the Facebook server-side bug that was making the clients refresh every 2 seconds.

    No, not yet, but I really do think BT is using more battery than it should.

    It may be your Bluetooth. I have gear s2 watch and lg headphones connected almost all day and I've never had Bluetooth more than 2 or 3%. I stopped using the Facebook app and just use it on chrome. I do miss WiFi calling I have poor reception at my office too, but I'm still pulling down 9 to 10 hours sot with GPS and lots of calls.

    I'd love to use Chrome on FB, but I can't figure out how to save images to the device.
