ID:	2622802 I've had my phone ever since 4.4, this only started happening recently. Instagram is always at the top of the list now. I used to get 4-6 SOT now I only get 1-2 hours. Anyone else having this annoying problem?

I sometimes get it, a restart fixes it. Though it can be annoying because you won't notice that it's doing it until you realize your battery is going down faster than normal.

Do you use the camera inside Instagram? If so, then stop using it.

Try clearing cache/data of instagram and reinstall it after a reboot.

The problem is that when a camera app like the one that allows users to click pictures or Skype is used, it continues to run in the background and uses CPU cycles. This not only leads to the battery drain but the phone also heats up.


Instagram uses the camera.

It doesn't seem that the latest update to Instagram has helped things.
