    I don't usually let my phone get too low. But the previous charge I decided to let it get lower to see how the battery was doing. Screenshot below. Then I charged my phone last night. And now it's already gone down over 20% in two and a half hours with less than 2 hours of screen time. Such a difference from yesterday and the day before. I've been doing the usual and haven't added anything new. I run device management and I close things out the same as usual. I just restarted my phone even though it was turned on a few hours ago. I am hoping this is just a fluke.Today battery is draining quicker..-screenshot_20181002-203235_settings.jpg

    No one else has had this issue and had a way to fix it. I'm now down to 57%. My phone's been restarted a couple of times and it hasn't helped.

    You had like 2 hours screen on time with 2 hours 46 minutes off the charger. You were still on pace for 9-10 hours SOT. How is that bad? If you are using your phone 80% of the day, there's no way it's going over 24 hours.
    Maybe I'm missing something here.

    Are stats aren't the same but yesterday mine went down noticeably faster than usual with my normal usage. Today, I'm at 14 1/2 hours on battery, 2:49 SOT and 48% battery. At this rate it looks like I'd have about 5 hours SOT if I let the phone run all the way down. That's not near as good as many are getting and I don't let my phone get below 25% if I can help it/think about it.

    How are you getting such high SOT? I'm finishing consistently around 24 hours off charge with 3.5 hours of SOT and that leaves me with about 20% battery. Why am I not getting even half of your SOT?

    So for comparison... Yesterday 22+ hrs on the battery with over 8 hrs SOT. Battery at 12%. Don't think that will be close today...

    It says your screen has been on for 7 hours out of the 9 hours -- What issue are you having with the phone? It sounds like it is doing just fine to be honest.

    See previous screen shots. Battery is draining quicker than usual and similar usage. Had 22 hrs on battery with over 8 hrs SOT yesterday. Won't make that today.

    That can happen due to various things such as cell signal.

    There's nothing wrong.

    Battery won't stay the exact same every day. There are many factors that make it change. If I watch 5 hours of videos one day on LTE I'll have less life versus 5 hours of a Kindle book....

    Yes... But I had said it was similar usage. Nothing extreme

    And as I said cell signal could play a factor.. or could have gotten more push stuff from Facebook and such.

    IDK what else to say and doubt anyone else will really either since your battery life is pretty good to be honest.

    Frankly, these screenshots don't tell anything. It just shows that yesterday you used over 8 hrs SOT and another 24 hrs of no SOT - maybe the phone was idle, or whatever. Actually looking at your first screenshot, you turned the phone off for quite a few hours before turning it back on - so that accounts for a lot of how you had 1 day and 8 hours since last charging. Your second screenprint shows that since you last unplugged your phone from the charger, it's been almost 10 hrs and you've had the screen on for 7+ of those hours. The data is not comparable at all. You used all that SOT in the last 10 hrs. Without knowing how you used your phone the day before and how the SOT was dispersed, I'm afraid you can't jump to any conclusion here.

    How is your SOT so high? Are you streaming video?

    She must be reading books or doing something else not intensive at all if she's getting that much screen time.

    You dont always get the same battery day to day. You do realize how many moving parts (figuratively) a phone has, right? It's not a big deal.

    If you have the screen on for 7 hours straight, your battery is going to die no matter how you slice it.

    I am a moderate user. Meaning no games. I have a Nintendo Switch for games. I text more than anything else, browse the web and browse Android Central app among other forums. Some pics here and there music to and from work... and those two graphs are what I'm pulling. The phone literally had accurately guessed my usage pattern.


    What I noticed is this phone BARELY sips any juice during standby, which is why you can have 8ish hours Screen over a +24 hour period, as well as have 8 hours screen on time with just 30% left.

    There's nothing wrong with the phone, you are just using it way more compared to the standby. I'm sure during the weekend I will see similar stats like yours since I wont have any work to do.

    If you had only 3 hours of screen at 30% then that would be a problem.

    You have great battery life.

    I enclosed my last two battery results. Standby battery drain (at least for me) is virtually non-existent.
