    This is my note 3, i do believe the lessons learned can be applied everywhere:

    Remember, I have no background sync whatsoever. I also disabled many unused apps. The discharging charts are for two stretches of 7 hrs when the phone was laying on the table unused.

    This is what happened when my wifi was left on by accident:

    and here is what happened when there is no data on whatsoever overnight:

    Google "decorated" android have massive number of things in the background that use internet and consume battery unnecessarily, almost to the degree of stalking. This can be easily reasoned by the simply fact that pure AOSP lasts much longer than google packaged ones.

    Juice Defender automatically shuts the WiFi data off when it's not being used.

    I have WiFi on my phone almost 100% of the time when I'm home and never had that bad of a drain. Perhaps it is certain apps that are doing this? I know the default email app did once on my note 3

    My phone app of all things did that on my LG G2, even when not in use. Same with Foursquare. Some apps just get stuck sometimes.

    I guess its the unpredictability with wifi on over time. New phone may be better.

    With data off, there is no such surprised.

    Well obviously since the offending apps aren't trying to use data. The offending apps are the reason of bad battery drain probably and should ethier delete them or wait for a fix

    I always clear running app with fast boot before putting the thing down. "offending app" is more likely offending processes that may not even have a recognizable name.

    Although once it arrives this will be my first Android device I suspect allowing the phone to search for Wi-Fi networks is more battery consuming than actually using them when you want to. It the phone is allowed to always look even if it is instructed to ask before connecting I would bet it still sucks away a bunch of your battery.

    It's a good thing I went with a carrier that gives me unlimited data.
