    Over the last 1/2 months my battery has been awful, it goes from 100% down to less than 10% in a matter of 2/3 hours if I am using it. Like today for instance, I have been only browsing the web and playing one game, yet in less than 2 and a half hours it went from 100% to 10%.

    Any ideas to why it is this bad? I have posted a picture of the battery stats.

    Welcome to Android Central! The cell signal looks pretty poor in that screenshot. Poor cell signal is a notorious cause of battery drain.

    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).

    You might have to install a 3rd party battery monitor, like GSam Battery Monitor, to get the Cell Signal Strength graph.
