Hello,

So today I had a few hours to waste at school. I played around on my phone just using social media and stuff but I noticed the battery went down REALLY fast. Also I noticed that the phone was very hot when just browsing twitter. I'm rooted, have elementalX installed and I'm on dalvik. I'll include photos. Help would be appreciated. I had GPS off, also the 'ok google' command was turned off. I know the Nexus 5 battery life isn't great but I normally get about 3-4 hours of screen on time, I only use my phone to browse social media really.

Thanks in advance!

If you're rooted, gsam or something similar can tell you if you had any wakelocks, and if so, what app.

The stock battery usage screen pretty much has no useful info.

You know what you're doing.... But if someone doesn't.... They'll never find issues with it.... Most the time. Or see wakelocks.

Oh, and as a full time battery life helper.....I can't help anyone without something better than stock screen shots....not without taking guess after guess. Lol

truth, lol

except thats the first place ill see when a wakelock is bugging my phone. itll show up as my phone being awake when my screens off. normally when my phone screen is off, my phone doesnt get woken(except for gmails or messages). but if i see it awake, i know i have wakelock to kill(or get a system process unstuck).

But how do you find the wake locks? Like a needle in a hay stack without a battery monitoring app.

And again, I'm sure you personally can find them quick enough, but 90 percent on here can't.... And I sure can't if they don't get gsam, BBS, wakelock detector or something.

its usually like one of three anyways(if i get bad one). anyways, i use wakelock detector to greenify sysyem apps occasionally, or if i need to find a wakelock https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...kelockdetector

Got that one too. Lol

Gsam is great overall....but wakelock detector has more detail for actual wakelocks.

When helping someone, I usually ask for gsam main screen.... To get the big picture, then wakelocks.

K.... we're hijacking. Even tho its thread related... I still must report us both. 😜
