    I agree that those last screen shots weren't really bad battery life, but Tuesday I had three hours of screen time and was down to 30% in 5.5 hours with similar usage. The inconsistency is bothering me. I'm going to have to do like you said and see if something is keeping it from deep sleeping.

    Unfortunately this screenshot can't tell us anything informative... You must have just unplugged it and have it set to monitor since last plugged so the stats just reset because it shows the stats are for the last 0s (zero seconds).

    And yes, you should do a factory default.

    My battery life had started declining even before Kit Kat and after had plummeted. I (finally) did a factory reset, which didn't seem to help appreciably, then I drained the battery - left it on until it turned itself off (at 1%). That did help.

    From a technical standpoint that's a bad idea, discharging a lithium polymer battery to less than 10% capacity can significantly reduce is charge cycle and capacity... But many LiPo batteries have a safeguard which shuts them off prior to reaching that point.

    Then again, if it works, who am I to argue?

    To give an update on my phone, I talked to Verizon tech support today and the guy I talked to thinks it's an app problem causing my battery life to be so poor sometimes. If I was understanding what he was saying some of my apps aren't allowing the phone to sleep properly. I deleted some, so we'll see how it goes.

    Get Wake lock Detector, GSAM, or BetterBatteryStats... Any of them should find your rogue app fairly quickly.

    My phone isn't rooted, so wakelock detector doesn't really work for me any more. GSAM doesn't indicate a rogue app, but it is also limited in regards to wakelock detecting without root. According to the battery usage listed by GSAM I don't have a bad app, but I guess if something is keeping the phone from sleeping properly it won't show without root, unless I'm missing something.

    Change you view in app sucker to "Time held awake" and "Number if timed waking device", If an app is keeping your phone from sleeping it will be there.
