    i powered my battery full and it has drained abnormally fast, and this is without using the phone.
    no wi-fi, no location access, no bluetooth,,,,,,no nuttin'.
    battery drained to 40% and when i looked i noticed com.motorola.blur.home responsible for 47% of the battery usage. i have never seen this function before.

    what is this, what does it do
    is this something new
    can i get rid of it
    can i deisable it

    if this continues i may as well get an iphone.

    thx

    -That is your homescreen(s) I believe.

    -Try disabling widgets.

    -Use third party launcher.

    -FDR and clear cache.

    fdr,,,that's reset you're talking about?

    i have a couple of questions.

    i noticed earlier that there was a system update notification that i DID NOT choose to do. did it update on it's own and is that why my battery is draing?
    what does reset and clear cache do for this particular problem?

    am i supposed to never use widgets again?

    sounds like a not so good update if that's what's happening

    -It's possible.

    -A reset would be your last resort if none of the other options work to clear up any errors in the cache or system files that occurred when updating.

    -I would take away the widgets to see if it helps. If it does then you add them back one by one until it happens again. Then you either stop using that widget, fool with the settings until it doesn't do that or find an alternative that doesn't do that.

    -Updates are never perfect since we never run our devices exactly stock and no operating system is ever perfect of causing errors over normal use.

    well im a minimal user when it comes to media and games. in fact, after i did the reset i decided i dont really use things like hbo-go or watchESP. im never on wifi nor do i set location access or 4g. the screen is 60%, so when i notice a battery drain in a matter of a few hours something is definitely wrong. so i hope the reset fixes things.

    Droid Turbo 2 & Galaxy S7
    I had similar problems with my S4. With nearly no usage daily it would die in about 11 to 12 hours. I finally gave up and now have the Droid MAXX. No battery problems here! Lol. I think sometimes there are individual phones of a particular model that just act strangely. Mine was one of them.

    FDR didn't work for me to fix the problems. Replacement was the final straw.

    i have the original maxx before the hd.
    and the reset didn't really solve anything. the update screwed my battery. i'll give you that after two years there's a deterioration of battery performance. as a test, now it streams netflix for a little over four hours where it once streamed FIVE movies

    Do you have extended warranty with Verizon? If you do, just call them and they'll send you a replacement. What software version are you running? Settings>about phone>system version.

    Try nova launcher. I used it because blur was getting so laggy. Much better now. Plus my battery seems a bit better now too.
