    I don't have any screen shots of it yet because it always dies so quickly, but for some reason my battery dies in about 3 hours overnight. The only app showing usage is gallery. Its not set to upload photos unless its plugged in and hooked up to wifi. Tomorrow I'm waking up early so I'll hopefully catch it before it dies. Has anyone else noticed this problem? The battery lasts very long during the day but I usually charge it to at least 90% before I go to bed so it should have easily lasted the night.

    Did you load any new apps, or change anything recently... even download any updates to apps?

    Did you go into Gallery and it's settings to turn off sync for picture accounts?

    It's a good idea to figure out what it is that's causing that so you can decide if you want it happening or not, but the short term solution is super simple. Just plug in your phone at night.

    I had a few new apps such as a live wallpaper, openmic + (it was off and didnt drain like that during the day), Venmo, boat browser, swipe home button and adobe flash. I uninstalled a few of the fishy ones like open mic + and the live wallpaper

    I'd recommend trying to monitor sleep state with "Wakelock detector"

    You will have an access to see what keeps your phone awake and drains your battery while your phone is idle.

    The app is available in Playstore free of charge
