    Yes. I have an unlocked bootloader. Deleted all the nonsense apps like Facebook.

    Here is my system info.

    I was getting about the same battery life as Mustang the year I had my Droid Maxx. I ran with GPS in High Accuracy Mode all the time, screen brightness on Auto and could normally get 3+ hours of screen on time every day using my phone and still only be at 50% at night when I went to bed...about 14 or so hours off the charger. No special settings, or anything for me. But.....I am not a social media user. I never use Facebook, Instagram, or any other social media app. My wife and daughters on the other hand....they use them all. Especially Facebook and Instagram. They are always looking for an outlet every 6 to 8 hours. Just my opinion, but those apps kill your battery.

    I'll show the stats of usage today. It's mostly some email, 20-50 texts, an hour of phone calls, some streaming of spotify when I'm driving and 2 games. Clash of clans and Fallout Shelter. Fallout shelter likes to eat the battery.

    From what I have read high accuracy only contributes to enabling turn by turn when using maps. Is this correct? What else will be affected by switching off high accuracy?

    Driving Mode claims that it needs High Accuracy. But I found that Driving Mode did work on the other Location settings.

    This really made no difference between location being battery saver vs high accuracy a couple hours at best of difference

    Um..if my Android system and kernel were eating that much battery..I'd do an fdr..maybe I'm not looking close enough..but I've always been quick to do an fdr anyway..it resorts the phone and keeps things operating well...

    Did you just do one perhaps and your phone hasn't settled in???
