    My Galaxy Tab a recently updated to Android 6.0.1. I am now noticing battery drain. I updated all my apps and cleared my cache. Anyone else having the same issue? When I look on my battery stats in settings it tells me that my screen is eating up 65% of my battery. And I have brightness all the way down. Any solutions? Thanks!

    Is this a wi-fi only or LTE-enabled Tab A?

    It is a Wifi Only Tablet.

    Ok, just wanted to make sure poor cell signal wasn't the issue.

    It would help to see some battery stats. 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).
    3. The Screen category (to see total Screen On time).

    Okay. I've gone to check the battery screen but I do not have a full screen battery graph. I touched the graph that's there which is small and nothing happens.
    So I checked in the manual online and it says there to touch the battery graph for history details. I get nothing. Nothing happens. I've tried shutting the tablet down and restarting it. I do not have a full screen battery graph.

    This is all I have

    Apparently my tablet doesn't have that feature. Is there a way to view the full screen graph that I'm missing?

    Thanks!

    For that additional information, you may want to install a good battery monitor app like GSam Battery Monitor.

    Also, make sure you charge up to 100%, then use the tablet normally until the battery is down to 20-30% before you take screenshots. It helps to see how the battery behaves over most of a full battery charge. And show us more of the list of apps and their battery percentage use.
