    I've been losing about 40% battery life overnight while the phone is not used at all.
    Facebook was my #1 battery drain at 43% so I uninstalled it today.
    Now when I check my battery usage I see this "10201" icon.
    Has anyone ever seen this before?

    Most likely this is just a temporary glitch after you uninstalled the app. Full charge the phone, restart and it should disappear. Tell us if it is still there. Nothing to worry about.

    Facebook is famous for causing battery drains, use the browser to access your account instead of the app and see how it goes.

    Thanks for the tip!
    The phone should be fully charged soon, I will unplug, restart and let it sit overnight and see what happens.
    Will post and update tomorrow morning.

    Okay last night I uninstalled Facebook and cleared system cache.
    I still lost 25% of the battery between 11pm and 6am without touching the phone.
    The "10201" app is gone as you suggested!
    Doesn't that seem like a lot of loss overnight?
    Wish I paid more attention when I first got the phone in March but I have a feeling something else is wrong.

    It seems that you have a very weak, or even nonexistent, cell signal. This could be one of the causes for the battery drain.

    87% drain in nearly 6.5 hours is pretty high.

    How many bars do you get on average? If you have 2 bars or lower, then that could explain the high battery drain.

    Also, can you explain how your usage pattern is like? It really helps us understand how a phone should behave based on usage.

    Hmmmm, OP. Maybe try some of these to see if it makes a difference.
    • Turn off auto-brightness and try adjusting the brightness manually to where it is comfortable for you.
    • Maybe try playing Dominoes a little less. Games can make a phone's battery drain quickly.
    • Try to use Wi-Fi if it is possible.

    They're just suggestions, but I think they should give an improvement, even if it's slight.

    that's horrendous battery life. I get livid when mine starts draining at 10%/hour. I don't think I've ever seen 13%/hour. With light usage, I can get about 4%/hour minimum.

    Does the *#*#4636#*#* thing work on Verizon phones? I stick mine in 4G-only mode. I get 2 bars or less of LTE in my area, and it ramps up to full or almost full bars when I put it in 4G mode. This helps me with battery life.

    That is a very interesting observation!
    I have noticed that the phone seems to lose more battery at night.
    Probably because I have a better signal during the day while at work.
    Right now at work I have 3 bars.

    I recharged the phone this morning, it was 100% at 8am and now down to 89% with almost no use.

    Scotch in the future you should make your own thread about whatever problem you are having, I can't tell whether some people are responding to you or me, just an fyi

    Thanks Macklesdaddy,
    I definitely should have done that!

    I thought maybe this was the start of a general "battery life" thread.
    And sometimes people get mad if you start a new thread instead of piggybacking onto an already existing thread on the same topic.

    In hindsight, I definitely should have started a new one.
    Sorry about that.

    ScotchRocks: something is running all night, as your 25% overnight drain is not even close to normal. On my T-Mobile version, I will lose 3-4% over 7 or 8 hours, and that's with the edge night clock running.

    You might try installing the app Better Battery Stats, fully charge the phone, and after a few hours of non-use (like overnight) look at the CPU States show that the phone is mostly in deep sleep. Overnight, it should be about 85% or so in deep sleep, with the rest when the phone wakes up from its Doze mode and the apps sync. When I've had a rogue app running, I can see the phone never going to deep sleep and once you find it, you will see dramatically better stand-by time

    I don't think so. I only get 1 bar where I leave my phone overnight and I lose about 0.4% per hour overnight. It's about 0.8% per hour with AOD enabled. However, I don't have WiFi or Mobile data enabled. From the screenshot posted by ScotchRocks, it looks like WiFi is enabled - perhaps something is continuously trying to sync/update overnight?

    EDIT: have a look at my musings here:

    My battery life is terrible too. It does not get me through the day. I bought a Mophie juice pack and now it is good, but the phone is very heavy.
