change option, turn the wi fi scan OFF
that does not make a difference for me Dave.
you posted your GSAM battery figures in a recent post. I asked if you could check if this matches with the Battery settings figures, as for me they don't. Can you check?
I don't understand what do you mean. THe GSAM App give you more information, that's all. It is the same of SONY Information but more accurate.

the information does not match when I check. My phone has only been on 30 minutes and GSAM reckons my screen is using 48% battery in this time while Android battery settings reckon its 25%.

I found the solution for my battery drain (100% down to as low as 50% in 10 hours just on standby and nothing else).
All I did was force the SIM to Preferred network type = GSM only.
Apparently in my area, LTE is particularly poor while GSM transponders are everywhere.
So the phone was never endingly hunting for more LTE stations.
The problem ofcourse is that I have to switch back to LTE/WCDMA/GSM mode whenever I want data.
(LTE data still performs well even on a weak signal).

The Display and it's brightness is the may problem for your battery issue. Network connection also a problem.
Check the number of bar of your Sim Card. If it is 1-2 bars, it will also cause the batt to drain faster.
Wait till you start playing high reslution games. It will drains up your battery in no time. I am facing this problem.
I need to re-charge the batt, 2 twice aday when I am on the move.
On top of that, if your power is 1.5Amp or below.... good luck, it can't even charge your battary when you are using it.

I agree with humpity, switching to "GSM only" immediately brought my power consumption to ~1% per hour.
Before that I had it on LTE/WCDMA/GSM and it was draining at ~4% per hour. No matter what I tried, it wouldn't reduce. I had the location WiFi and Bluetooth scanning off. I had disabled as many bloatware apps as possible. No use, it drained fast even at night, with no use, even with data off.
My first hint was when I turned Airplane mode on. Battery drain stopped. Not even 1% after 2 hours. Then I started experimenting with the radio options, and eventually found that GSM only is very efficient. I now have mobile data on, and still am getting a respectable 2% per hour.
