I think I have a lousy battery on my N5. I have listed below the settings I use. I don't think anyone can go further than this to save battery.
- Screen brightness - 10%
- Auto brightness OFF
- Google Now OFF
- Hotword detection OFF
- GPS - Device only
- Location tracking off
- WiFi scanning off
- Phone data set to 2G mode (4/4 bars) when idle, I switch to WiFi when I have to browse on Chrome.
Typical daily usage : I just use whatsapp 70% of the screen on time, with some googling on Chrome or reading a few news articles. Updating a couple of apps daily. No calls at ALL, no gaming at all. No video streaming at all.
All I get is about 3.5 - 4 hours of screen time, with the battery lasting about 15 hours. (a little more than half a day).
Some apps prevent my phone from sleeping, and kill the battery in ~9-10 hours, but that's very rare and is a bug, so i'm not taking that into consideration.
Do you think there's something seriously wrong with the battery, when it's giving such poor life for such light usage? Should I RMA my phone?
Tho really, your battery time doesn't seem that out of place. You do have location services on....and as said, signal quality can be a factor. You could have wakelocks.....anything.
Need screen shots to see what it looks like.
