    Mines draining fast 82% with only 41 mins SOT
    Were those 41min gaming? But that's still pretty high. How good is signal for you usually? On perspective, here's my usage at 81%, spend gaming on Clash of Clans and browsing Facebook and Tapatalk. Pardon the red screen filter.

    Battery life has to be my biggest frustration with android. This phone has such potential with a big battery and for some it works well. But for many there are hidden processes and battery drainers going on that just spoil the experience. It's a shame. Especially when the release firmware was so good and the updates have made things worse

    I really thought they might have fixed it this past update. I'm probably worse for having any faith in them.

    I'd take gsam,battery monitor and as many apps as I could off the phone.
    Apps take up battery life.
    Back up your data and reset the phone.

    My apps don't even take up 2 pages of the drawer and I never use gsam. Reset it two days ago and after 1 good day of battery, it's back to rubbish now.

    Meanwhile my biggest battery drain is still OS. Wish I knew what was causing it to be so high so I could turn it off

    Well looks like you left WiFi direct on. That eats quite a lot of battery if left active AFAIK.
    What do you mean by "wifi direct"

    It's basically airdrop for Android. But anyway checked the picture again, it appears the icon I mistook for WiFi Direct was actually WiFi calling.

    Initially the last update diminished by battery life. A cache wipe restored it. However I think my battery life can still get better. I'm seeing a massive jump in battery usage by the antenna. With mobile data off, I get 0.7% per hour, and that's with stuff like Tasker and Lightflow polling for events in the background. But turning mobile data on makes this jump to 3-4% per hour on my latest test.

    Try a system cache wipe first. It won't delete anything relevant, and in my case it helped.

    Thanks, already done that. So unless I try it again, it basically didn't help. Battery life gets worse with each update it seems

    Samsung will Factory Reset it for you (back up everything before you send it in). That's why I am not going to get my phone's wireless charging problem (too slow) repaired, because I do not want to spend days setting my phone up again. Obviously, it would be different if the screen were broken or something; I can live with slow wireless charging since the wired charges fast and I usually just charge it overnight.

    Uninstall and then reinstall all large apps after every update. Works for me every time.
