I don't usually let my phone get too low. But the previous charge I decided to let it get lower to see how the battery was doing. Screenshot below. Then I charged my phone last night. And now it's already gone down over 20% in two and a half hours with less than 2 hours of screen time. Such a difference from yesterday and the day before. I've been doing the usual and haven't added anything new. I run device management and I close things out the same as usual. I just restarted my phone even though it was turned on a few hours ago. I am hoping this is just a fluke.Screenshot_20181002-203235_Settings.jpg

No one else has had this issue and had a way to fix it. I'm now down to 57%. My phone's been restarted a couple of times and it hasn't helped.

You had like 2 hours screen on time with 2 hours 46 minutes off the charger. You were still on pace for 9-10 hours SOT. How is that bad? If you are using your phone 80% of the day, there's no way it's going over 24 hours.
Maybe I'm missing something here.

Are stats aren't the same but yesterday mine went down noticeably faster than usual with my normal usage. Today, I'm at 14 1/2 hours on battery, 2:49 SOT and 48% battery. At this rate it looks like I'd have about 5 hours SOT if I let the phone run all the way down. That's not near as good as many are getting and I don't let my phone get below 25% if I can help it/think about it.

How are you getting such high SOT? I'm finishing consistently around 24 hours off charge with 3.5 hours of SOT and that leaves me with about 20% battery. Why am I not getting even half of your SOT?

So for comparison... Yesterday 22+ hrs on the battery with over 8 hrs SOT. Battery at 12%. Don't think that will be close today...

And ? Your screen has been on for 7 hours. What issue do you think you have ?
See previous screen shots. Battery is draining quicker than usual and similar usage. Had 22 hrs on battery with over 8 hrs SOT yesterday. Won't make that today.

That can happen due to various things such as cell signal.

There's nothing wrong.

Okay... For you. For me yes

Battery won't stay the exact same every day. There are many factors that make it change. If I watch 5 hours of videos one day on LTE I'll have less life versus 5 hours of a Kindle book....

Yes... But I had said it was similar usage. Nothing extreme

And as I said cell signal could play a factor.. or could have gotten more push stuff from Facebook and such.

IDK what else to say and doubt anyone else will really either since your battery life is pretty good to be honest.
