    It would've been better to respond in the other thread you had created and which I responded to as well, but since you posted screenshots here, we'll continue here. Please make sure to Reply to this thread, not create a brand new thread, which will only cause confusion--thanks!

    I'll repeat here what I had written in that other response, and please try to show us all requested screenshots, so that we can do our best to figure out the issue:

    Charge up to 100%, then let it drain to 20-30% (note that this means battery down to 20-30%, not down to 70-80%) with normal usage, without charging in between. Then show us:

    1. The main Settings>Battery screen.
    2. The fullscreen battery graph screen (which shows Awake time and Cell Signal Strength).
    3. The Screen category (to see total Screen On time).
    4. The Cell Standby category, if present (to see Time Without Signal).

    Thankyou for the reply to my post. What do you mean normal usage? Doesn't everyone use it differently? I always charge it 100%. I've been using it how i usually do. Or is there a normal way? Also lets say my S5 does have a problem does it mean is the battery or the phone? Sorry i'm new to smartphones

    Yes, they can read it.

    B. Diddy has closed your earlier, duplicate, post... Switched to Android, does my S5 battery look healthy?, in favour of this new one that you have started.

    Just follow B. Diddy's instructions in post #2, above. This will help give a better idea of your long term, average, battery usage and enable us to make an informed comment to your query.

    Welcome to the forums. What B. Diddy meant was to use your device as you normally would. So don't make any changes to help battery life...just do what you would want to do with your phone.

    Thanks for the screenshots. Still would like to see the Screen details so that we know how long the screen has been on during this charge. There should be a Screen listing under the battery graph--tap that so that we see the details. But judging by the graph alone, I'd estimate that the screen-on time has been at least 5 hours. With 22% battery left, that means you're on track for almost 6 hours of screen-on time, which is excellent.

    In that last set of screenshots, I'm not sure why the top battery user is an unnamed process with an Android logo. It's different from the first set of screenshots, where Screen was the top battery user. Does that Android logo keep showing up?

    Yes! Now tap the Screen listing there, and it should give you more details--specifically how long the screen has been on.

    What do you usually do with the device? What is your brightness at?

    It looks like the phone is being kept awake by something, even though the screen isn't always on. Go to the App Manager, select the Running Apps category, and show us that screenshot, so that we can see which apps are currently in RAM. One of these might be inappropriately keeping the phone awake, which can promote battery drainage.

    Just a thought MotherAyahuasca... could you post the 3 lines of your firmware, "Version", details. To locate your current firmware version, go to the stock, Samsung, dial pad and type in...

    *#1234#

    This will give you your, "Version", details in full, usually 3 lines of information, AP: CP: CSC:, which may all be relevant.

    *** If code *#1234# has been disabled on your firmware, you can download and install, free from the Play Store, Phone INFO ?Samsung? and it will give you, under Firmware Info... PDA, Baseband, CSC, versions.
