    I've done a cache wipe, suppressed apps, and tried to vary charge cycles. Not even 2 hours of SOT and battery is not even at 12 hour intervals which is atrocious.[​IMG]

    What else could I do at this stage? Phone is only at 1 year+1month of use. This is on Wifi, which the worst part was on the previous cycle I had it charged up to 90% at 10:30 PM the night before, this morning at 8 AM, down to 51 percent with no screen on time.

    You could try this. Charge it on the OEM factory charger all night so it gets to 100% and stays there for over 30 minutes after 100%. Then in the morning, first thing off the charger do a forced reboot.....hold the power button for 7+ seconds until the phone shuts down Let go and it will reboot and recalibrate the battery meter. Repeat the next day and see if anything improves.

    Second thing...when you tap that graph in your screen shot, and can see the History Details screen, what does it look like? Anything keeping the phone awake a lot?

    I'll certainly try that workaround.

    The cause is the system is staying awake the entire time, even during prolonged screen off periods. It may benefit to do a clearing of the system cache, but you may ultimately need to do a factory days reset.

    I was just getting ready to comment and FoxKat beat me to it. That solid green line next to Awake means that an app / process is keeping the phone awake always. That's what is killing your battery.

    Here is what mine looks like as a comparison. Notice how the Awake line is similar to the Screen On a line. My phone is sleeping a lot when the screen is off, nothing is keeping it awake when it should not be.

    Just noticed that Facebook is # 4 on your first pic. I would be willing to bet that the Facebook app is keeping your phone awake all the time and chewing through your battery.

    Probably notifications of it constantly sniffing for changes. Might be a data hog as well if it's polling frequently.

    After trying what in the replies was suggested, it's useful not to have a 4g always active! Then, check the settings of connection; the voice "global" drains a lot the battery.

    +2 on the Facebook app being the cause. Dump that hog.

    That's something I've been experimenting with too. Sometimes using LTE/CDMA produces undesirable results in my area in 08807. Also I've noticed using 5G WiFi has been extremely reliable over 2.4 gHz band in my house (probably helps having an ASUS AC3100, beastly router in all senses of the word.)

    Several times FB has released an update that destroyed battery life. They are usually quick to fix it. Happened to me once. I removed it. Waited a week or so, and reinstalled. They release updates very frequently.
