I feel like my battery keeps getting worse and worse. Used to last me a day and a half and now only about a day.

Hey mate, sorry to hear you are getting worse battery life. Are you using anything from your normal? Check out my guide and see if anything helps. Below are my stats currently. I can only see you still have your alarm on, this can cause a slight lose.

Mine hasn't ever lasted as long as your day and a half, maybe it is just leveling out? A few days ago I recalibrated my battery, maybe that would help?

Try shutting it off ( hold the off button on right side) the turning it back on . Reboot, I had an unexplained battery issue and this fixed it, I can get 3-4 days now.

My battery is either good or bad. Right now it's fine and going good. But sometimes I think something makes my battery worse. I will keep updating with screenshot. I think 8% for only minute on screen time is not that good.

Yeah that's great! You can install better battery stats here on xda to see if you are getting any wake locks etc. Greenify plus xposed will do this also, but bbs has more info

I had a battery problem similar to yours not long ago. One of the things that was running it down was in Settings> Wi-Fi> Always allow scanning. The phone would scan for Wi-Fi signal even when Wi-Fi was turned off. Unchecking that box helped a lot.
I also used a battery calibration app that clears the battery stats and that has pretty well fixed the problem.
