    Almost 5 hours of on screen time and 38% left. Not too shabby.

    What power saving options do you have enabled? Also how did you get your attached pics to display so largely?

    1. Take a screen shot of the graph that you get when you click on the line graph (the graph with "6h 13m 58s on battery" in the middle of it) and post that up.

    2. Download Greenify and run it. Take a screen shot of the apps that it recommends you set to hibernate.

    3. Take a screenshot of your notification panel pulled down, so we can see how you have your screen brightness settings set up.

    Post those three images up and let's go from there.

    Some of these apps are running more in background than foreground. Should I enable for them to one run in background on Wi-Fi?

    Also the signal on 4G Lte is usually 3-4 bars at work. Could is Constantly be searching for stronger signal? What is this about 4GLTE on last screen, Signal search?

    What is "TheScore" and why does it need to be running in the background? I have SwiftKey too, but it never runs in the background. Ditto DropBox. What are you doing with the Playstation App?

    Those are the most likely reasons for your battery drain right now.

    The Score is a app that you can check scores, stats etc of games going on and that have ended. I turned off all refreshing etc… not sure why it’s running in background and more usage in background than foreground.

    Playstation App - I only check it to see what friends are online and to message people sometime.

    Would it be okay to turn all of those running in background off unless on wi-fi?

    I would definitely give it a try and see if it improves your battery life. You might want to see if you can just turn off The Score all together, and just get updates whenever you log in to the app. Brady isn't going to throw another TD before the next time you look up a box score!

    I don't know LOL. I've turned off everything including the Google now stuff. I keep my screen on auto. I'm running art. I use black wall paper. But I have always got really good battery life with this phone. I will say that for most of this week I noticed that it wasn't as good. Then yesterday it froze up and I had to pull the battery to get it running again. Now it's back to normal with great battery life.
    I had tried rebooting it prior to that with no luck on getting back to normal with battery life. But after it froze and I pulled the battery it's been great.

    I don't know what "art" is?

    Btw, my battery life seems to be getting worse. I used to average 4-4.5 screen time with 15-21 hours on my battery. Now I seen to be getting around 3 hours screen time with 12-15 hours on my battery. I haven't done a lot of tests from 100%, but it seems to be getting slowly worse: the other day I was at 3.5 screen time with 17 hours on battery but my latest is barely 3 hours screen time with 12 on battery.

    My only change is starting using the health coach widget, and a live wallpaper (which is mostly black however.) Also for this last reading, I charged it to 100% in the morning when I usually charge it to 100% before bed so it's inactive for around 6-7 hours. Still doesn't explain the screen time reduction.

    Any thoughts?

    I've worked pretty hard on disabling everything I don't need to get this battery life. I'm pretty pleased with the performance!

    What do you disable and what is your screen time for this? Are you using any power saving modes during this time?

    Mine is getting better and better. Averaging 7 hours lately. But I've uninstalled many apps that I hardly used.

    My screen on time is about 2hrs so far. I disabled almost everything I could, honestly. All the software I didn't use (samsung/verizon software). I don't have any power saving modes on. I keep my screen brightness on auto.

    His earlier post had his phone at 48%, so 2 hours screen time on nearly half battery is pretty good. Especially if he's getting more than 24 hours battery life on that too.

    7 hours screen time is insane!

    Is everyone who is getting this great battery life charging their phones to 100%? The counter doesn't reset until you do so, I was getting a day and a half readings before I realized that the counter wasn't resetting.

    Even if you charge it to 99% it may not reset. This is the only explanation I can think of, otherwise I would like to know every app and setting that people are using/not using so I can get this lol

    Does anyone know how to "disable" these bloat apps that come with the phones? I have Sprint.
