Re: [Fix]Nougat Battery Drain

Think you may have something here... yesterday I disabled the Android Device Manager for other reasons and this morning to my surprise the battery was as I had left it the night before.

 

Could this actually be the root of all these issues? I will let you know as the day progresses

Turn OFF phone optimization, the phone reboots and this is what I had this morning

Th enext step is to continue on this discharge cycle, turn the optimization back on and full charge. Maybe at this point it may act as intended

Hi,

 

Which Bluetooth services do you have running?

I've found some interesting things with some of the apps that are bundled that use a Bluetooth service. I ended up managing Bluetooth with a 3rd party app to give extra battery life.

Has anyone else tried this?

I tried it and it kind of works but having adaptative brightness is a little bit umconfortable.
