    Hello. I upgraded to Lollipop and all of the sudden it seems that the battery dies. At first I thought it was Zynga, and sometimes when I delete the data, it lasts. Today I have not opened the two apps and it lasted until just now. I have the battery saver to come on automatically at 15%, and it does not. When I look at the graph, it decreases at a normal pace and all of the sudden there's a cliff. After I plug it back in it shows that it has a substantial battery life still. Sometimes though the plus doesn't work and it shows zero battery and charging but won't turn back on. When this happens it is difficult to get a screenshot. Almost sounds like a software issue.

    Using what charger? A screenshot of battery use would be helpful.

    Try clearing the cache (instructions easy to find) and then, turn phone off and charge overnight.

    Same here. I'd be ecstatic to have 20% left after over a day!

    My Droid 4, went from a great battery life to draining quickly wiht no add ons and no adjustments to the battery heating up being anywhere but a table top to dead and the phone not seeing it. Basicly it now only will stay on plugged in and restarting, restoring it won't help... HELP me..

    A droid 4 is a 4 year old phone. Almost certainly the battery is worn out. It's time for a new phone.

    I've had the Droid Turbo for a few months now, and the battery life has been great. It was the biggest reason I bought this phone in the first place. Over the past two days, however, the battery life has DRAMATICALLY downgraded. At 11 p.m. last night, I had 58% battery life with no apps running. The phone was in sleep mode. That much battery should have been able to get me through last night and ALL of TODAY. This morning, I check my phone, and I'm at 22% with the phone not in use for 8 hours.

    All of the bells and whistles on this device are turned off. I don't have the reach out display thing turned on where it recognizes your movement. The screen is only taking up 30% of the battery draw. I have the bare minimum notifications turned on - the rest are off. My system did NOT update within the last two days. The battery simply seems to be freaking out.

    Has anyone else had this? Suggestions?

    I do not have an answer for you. I have also had the same problem with my galaxy 5. If you find out anything please let me know. My son suggested call Verizon who is my carrier.

    Do not install an app like that.

    Open up settings / battery usage and take a screenshot (hold power and volume down at the same time until the screenshot happens.) On that page is a graph at the top showing battery left by time. Tap that graph and a new page will open. Grab a screenshot of that and post the screen shots here.

    It's likely that you have an app that is keeping the phone awake when it shouldn't and it may be an easy fix.

    Also remember that as a phone ages you'll notice the battery degrades. Usually for me it's more of a one day I'm like, wow, my battery isnt lasting too long. That's usually when I decide to get a new phone.

    Sure you can replace the battery but usually the aftermarket ones aren't nearly as good as the OEM and isn't really worth it. It's a crapshoot how long they last

    I'm having the same issues. I have to charge in the late afternoon to make it through the day. It was never like this until the recent upgrade with new OS

    I've experienced the rapidly discharging battery twice in the past 6 months. I would normally see about 2.5% loss of battery per hour but when I have the rapid battery drain it's more like 7% per hour.

    I perform a "wipe cache partition" and my battery is back to normal.
