    @georgebower1 You've got a TON of apps that (by default) are going to pull background data, LOTS of it, FB, Twitter, Instagram, whatsapp, snapchat, etc...
    These won't always get accurate percentage reporting, IME, so where they look like they're drawing say 7%, they might be pulling more like 10-15%, which is significant (Oreo finally seems to be getting a little better at tracking background, maybe).
    Personally, I think OP has a problem on the 5T anyway, with accurately reporting discharge/charge, mine jumps all over, in "chunks", like today where my phone went from 81-82%, then to 92%, and then to 100%, with basically nothing in-between (I was checking it every minute or so, to make sure I wasn't just perceiving things).
    This combination isn't good for tracking things.

    Either way though, you need to restrict background data on all those social apps, or decide you're just okay with a higher drain-rate.
    One thing to consider too, is that these apps change over time, and sometimes go from being a low-moderate-user to being a moderate-high user (of battery AND data).
    If you look at your data for these apps, it can be "revealing", because you'll see the big percentages of background.

    Seriously, people getting 7+ hours of SOT with 20% left and asking how to improve when some of us barely get 5-6h

    I have yet to get UNDER 8 hrs SOT, 10.5 was max. I do have airplane mode and WiFi on 95 % of my day, and WiFi off at night. I sync apps, contacts, calendar, Gmail and keep. No battery drainers like FB app. GPS mode very seldom. Mainly use Chrome, Telegram, G+, Gmail, and lots of CC Saga. I'm on beta Oreo.

    I feel that the battery is amazing when in airplane mode even while watching movies.
    But when 4g data is on, there is a drastic change.
    The standby time difference like overnight 6to 8 percent loss.
