    I'm not certain I see a problem. Unless it's with the camera, in which case I would start with restarting your phone. The held awake time did not consume any power by itself and I can't tell by those shots how the phone was actually being used. I assume you have a reasonable screen timeout?

    If you don't feel you are getting enough usage from the battery you might consider a replacement battery.

    Also, are you running a custom ROM or are you rooted?

    phone usage is literally a handful of texts a day and maybe 1 or 2 20 min phones calls on an average day screen was on a total of like 12 min today

    it times out in 30 sec...stock on everything

    Did you try restarting? How many actual hours are you getting before needing a charge?
