    So I've been sitting at a charge station at the airport for 45 minutes plugged in browsing Facebook with a standard charge cable and the battery has remained at 61%. Is this normal that the phone is pulling so much battery for Facebook that it can't positively charge with a normal cable? Do I need to go invest in a bunch of rapid charge cables and bases? I lost 40% battery in 30 minutes just from Facebook browsing...

    You should just get yourself a 20000mah quick charge battery backup to keep around. I just got the KMASHI brand. It was on special for $20. It will charge your phone 7 times. 2 USB ports. Best thing to have instead of having to hang around a charge terminal at the airport. To answer your question though and definitely can happen with a standard charge cable. If using the phone while charging with a standard cable, the output may not be enough. Also a crappy cheap cable won't help either.

    Depends on the output of the charging station. It sounds like it's output is low compared to the charger that comes with the phone.

    Not all chargers are the same.

    Good point. I am going to plan better for next time I travel. I was literally watching my battery fade just by scrolling and wanted to push it back up to 100%. Still at 61% lol

    That doesn't sound right. 40% battery decrease in 30 minutes? Sounds like a possible battery problem.

    40% in 30 minuets is very hard to do. Direct sunlight+max brightness+max volume+3D gaming.. Maybe.

    I have the same cpu as you and don't have any problems with Android System and Android OS.

    So how fast does your battery last then?

    Well it differs! One day it last for about 12 hours with WiFi on and the other day I get about 4h sot! Something very fishy is going on!
    I think I have to reset the phone one more time! I hate it!
    Also hate the front face camera but it is not part of this thread.

    I get 24 hours and most of the time it's connected to an android wear watch as well as being used to tether my iPad. I have all location services and WiFi on permanently. Best battery life I've ever had. It used to kill my S5 in half a day
