    Let us know what happens if you put it back in. If the drain reoccurs, look at the battery app and see if Media server is using a lot of battery. If the answer is yes (and I bet it will be), then you probably have corrupt media files on your SD card. Reformatting the card should solve it, if that's the problem.

    Interesting. 11+ hours with 2 1/2 hours screen on time, and 44% battery left, and not on WiFi, is actually darn good. That would translate into something close to 20 hours on a charge. I don't think you can expect a lot better than that. Right now I'm looking at 15 hours with 34% left, WiFi for most of that time, and about 3 hours of screen on time.

    But something is keeping your phone awake. Whatever it is isn't using a lot of battery.I think you're going to have to install one or more of the programs suggested earlier in this thread to track it down.

    Almost down less than 50, yes coming from full charge.. almost full after 2 hours and it is without using the phone after disconnecting charger after 5 mins there goes 1% and after 5 mins another 1%
    THIS IS THE PLUMMET! Don't do a factory reset...it won't help.
    Evidence #1: See how it cruises along just fine and then at one point the angle steepens (right over the "er" in battery in the first shot)?
    Evidence #2: Android System is too high on that list.

    Now I have to ask, were you in an LTE area at all during the day? Looks like the plummet kicked in around 10:30 PM. Were you in an LTE area at that point? And did you have wifi on? (from the third picture, it looks like wifi was never connected, but was it turned on?).

    Typically, the plummet is a product of LTE + Wifi with the phone unable to resolve which network it should use and freaking out. This happens to me at work, which is in an LTE area and I connect to wifi every day. I've tried a lot of things, but the only thing that works is to restart my phone when I get to work. Since I've been doing this, the plummet stays away. If I don't reboot the phone as I'm walking into work, the plummet will occur that day.
