Dell Technologies Cyber Savings Event - Up to 45% off

    So I've been using my phone a lot this past couple of months so I've not paid the slightest bit of attention to battery life. By chance yesterday I thought it seemed to be chomping through battery pretty quick so I fully charged today and took this screen grab just now.
    I'm not all that clued up on how android is reporting use now, does this seem 'normal or withing expected range?
    Thanks in advance

    If you use the Facebook app alot, I would consider disabling it and using Facebook Lite instead if you're okay with the Lite one's more basic look.

    Or just use in the browser. FB is definitely a battery hog.

    Sadly I use it a lot for work, however I don't remember it being this hungry in the past? I tried reinstalling but still reporting like this. Is this normal?
    Trust me to look lol. I should have stayed oblivious

    Is your cell signal usually like that, or is it worse in a particular location? Poor cell signal can contribute to battery drain.

    Like this when I'm at home, however this isn't a new thing and this change in battery drain is. I'm not sure if it relates to the last OS update?

    I feel like the browser would be more of a battery hog than FB Lite.

    Besides with the latter you can have notifications

    Could anyone else post a screen shot of how their Facebook app is behaving? Is it normal to have so much background use?

    It appears neither of those options support Gifs and what's the point of FB without annoying people with Gifs.

    People are sending a shed load more messages recently so your sync will be more active using both antenna and CPU power on the app. Delete all the people talking tosh.
