And when I say standby, I don't mean not using it. I mean I can simply put it down and use it when I need to without having to plug it in.
Sorry if I missed it,m but have you tried Battery Saver in settings?
After the update, I noticed Google Maps was sucking a ton of juice, even though I wasn't using it. I turned off all of the location services and history options in Maps, and I think that solved it. I also turned off Google Now, which I suppose could have been the culprit as well since it relies heavily on location based information. Either way, the useless 20% drain I was experiencing is solved.
Jeese turn on battery saver!
Unfortunately I was busy yesterday so I didn't get a chance to backup/reset but hopefully I'll get to it tonight.
Yeah I went to sleep with over 23% and woke up to my phone dead... Usually 23% lasts me all day if im not using my phone.
^^For sure. Mine would've been closer to maybe 15% if it were like it used to be on ICS...depending on how much sleep I got.
Now did the FDR help your battery life at all? Also did you take it OTA or flash it?
