    I have consistently found that my battery drains with a wild speed on this phone. I have tried all the tips I can find and yet I still have to charge it twice a day whilst at school if I don't want to go into the critical 5% zone. Even if I leave it on airplane mode for most of the day, the battery still drains way too far and fast. Sometimes my phone will freeze up, and I get a lot of errors about system/com functions stopping or not responding. Just writing this has taken me down to 4%. Any help is appreciated!!

    I'll attach a photo in a moment.

    Are you still using the phone's original battery? If so, perhaps buy a new one.

    Welcome to Android Central! Agree with the suggestion to try a new battery. Also, it would help to see more battery stats. Charge up to 100%, then let it drain to 20-30% 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).

    Alright, will do! I guessed it was something with the system and not the battery due to its frequent lack of response and self-restarts
