Re: Same old battery issue

Try "uninstall updates" for google play services. The phone may be a little less smart but mostly only for google stuff. It's just google enhancing their vending experience at the expense of your battery.

Re: Same old battery issue

I am also getting a very low battery backup, I am using greenify will all apps hibernated and with only 2 hours of game play and using few apps and wifi on for sometime , the phone hardly lasts for 1 day.

 

May be should have gone for any local brand brand phone like micromax or xolo .

Tell me one think. Regardless of battery draining, how much time you need to charge your phone from less than 10% to 100%?

Re: Same old battery issue

I have this exact same problem for 7 months. Sometimes standby drain is okay but most times its like this (really crap) even when the phone is reset to factory defaults and nothing installed.

Turning wifi off makes no difference at all, I found the only way to improve it to restart phone and avoid playstore.


Having said that, yesterday was the only day since I got this phone that I could use playstore then let the phone standby without the drain starting, it remained at around 1% per hour. I don't know if this was a fluke or perhaps a play services update was released.

This is what I recommend to get bests standby time on SP

#1 Disable Stamina mode, this does not help at all. If anything makes battery life worse, unless your phone is full of active apps in standby

#2 Restart phone often especially after recharge and don't update apps from playstore unless you have to

#3 Leave all default apps enabled. I tried this, disabling 1 by 1 but it never helped. Yesterday when the problem seemed resolved, I had 0 apps disabled.

#4 Say a prayer at night Slightly smiling Face
