    after browsing through multiple posts regarding people. reporting improved battery life and min 4-5 hrs screen on time .
    I am getting only 1-2 hrs of screen on time every day.
    I am not a heavy app user.
    my daily app usage include some browsing , Facebook , Whatsapp , Snapchat and Instagram.

    Well screen on time is not everything. If you have WIFI or mobile data, Bluetooth or other similar things (nfc, location etc) open this could happen. Everything consumes power. For example my last charge was 2 days ago, I have 30% left with 3 hours screen on time, while WIFI is open non-stop for the past 2 days.

    To tell you if this is normal you need to specify exactly what is running all the time.

    Same for me I have WIFI or LTE and location. bluetooth and nfc are disabled. By the overnight drainage I assume you mean "idle phone" is 9%. Can you please post a screenshot from the list that shows the consumption percentages?

    Also if my maths are correct after two days of usage u are still on 30% so everyday u are using aroud 35% of battery.When we substract the idle usage you sre getting around 25% drainage for the whole day?????? Its unbelivable !

    OK let me state certain things that could help or cause this. (I am running 4.7.6)

    Causes:
    • Having low signal can make the phone search constantly for better signal and consume more battery
    • Brightness of screen can affect SOT (screen on time). For example an SOT with 3 hours and 100% brightness will consume more than a screen with 3 hours SOT and 70% brightness
    Could Help:
    • Use black background and change the mobile inner menus to black, this way less pixels will be used and you will save battery
    • My phone from 23:00 to 7, enters the midnight mode, which changes the brightness and in case i use it or I get a notification that enables the screen, results in smaller battery consumption.

    By the time I wrote the first message I had 29% and I am using the phone ever since so now I have 25%. Also I noticed that your signal strength is low from the picture you provided, this could also be a reason as I already stated.
