    I am so confused as to why I am having such poor battery life. I even uninstalled Facebook and Facebook messenger today. This is really confusing me. I have smart switch turned off, all location settings switched off, Nova launcher with a black theme and wallpaper to try to conserve battery power. Autobrightness off and the phone at the lowest possible brightness. I don't know what else to try anymore

    Try downloading Gsam in the play store. It will tell you what app might be causing your phone to stay awake causing your battery drain.

    It might be the weather channel app you have there constantly running in the background. It also could be that your signal isn't all that great. Noticed you have 6% cell standby.

    Thanks for the suggestion. I'm literally losing a percentage point every few minutes. Sometimes every few minutes. It's getting to a point now where I am willing to try anything. I just uninstalled the weather app

    This was a battery killer for me. It has to do with the weather constantly trying to update. So confused-uploadfromtaptalk1432593521660.jpg

    It's what the stock weather widget uses to update the weather.

    Turn sync off on the notification bar's options. It's helped mine significantly

    Then nothing gets synced in real time. But I guess it would work if your not using your phone for periods of time.

    Am I correct in assuming that's the European equivalent of what's labelled Weather Daemon on my Verizon unit?

    I just got off the phone with Samsung customer care. I told them about everything that I'm doing and that I am still losing 20% battery life per hour. They told me it sounded like I had a faulty operating system and I should go into telstra tomorrow to get my phone replaced

    I've been talking to samsung on twitter. They got me to put my device in safe mode. The battery difference was like between night and day. I've now taken it out of safe mode and am awaiting further instruction from samsung

    for what it's worth ...

    Safe mode pretty much disables everything on the phone other than how it came out of the box (if not exactly that, something close to that). They use it in troubleshooting to see if it's possibly a third-party app that's causing the issue(s). In your case, it would appear that something you installed, or some setting(s) you changed are causing your phone to go bonkers. Hopefully you + them can identify the offender, and fix it ... otherwise, you may have to do a factory reset, then add your apps back one by one, slowly, and monitor the phone after each to see which one is all of a sudden causing your battery to drain like crazy.

    Good luck, at least you know the phone's hardware is ok so far.

    I uninstalled Android Central, AVG and outlook as those were three of the apps that didnt show up on my phone in safety mode. I took my phone off the charger this morning at 87% and this has been the result so far. Its like I've got a different phone. I'll be keeping an eye on it over the next week or so

    Avg? ? Don't do that to your a6. Why would you need it for?

    My bet is weather daemon and or just plain crappy signal strength where you are. Nothing burns through a battery like constantly trying to search for a weak cell/data signal. It's just brutal on a phone's battery.
