Default Battery life question

Sup guys I have been having issues with awake time. While I'm still getting good batter life I'm thinking it could be better if I figure out what's keeping my phone awake. Well today I was in a not so great service area for most of the day and I see my awake time coincides with the bad service area. When it goes green the phone sleeps when its yellow it is awake. Is this a known thing for bad service to keep the phone awake? I know it searches for signal and burns more battery but I did not know if it should be awake. Thoughts?

Are you rooted? I doubt its just from radio. Something is constantly waking your phone. But you need gsam or wakelock detector to show you what is waking the phone. Without root, its not so easy to find out tho.

And no, that is not good battery life. For the amount of screen time it seems you have there, the battery should still be at 50 or 60...or more, percent.

No I'm not rooted and would rather not. I just shut off Google now. Gonna see what that does. Never use it anyway

But do you see how the awake happens when I go into yellow or worse signal. Is that weird or what?

It actually seems pretty consistent to me, green or yellow.

Its probably an app or service. Without root, very hard to track down.

Try turning off gnow, location services completely off, in Google settings app...uncheck both options in android device manager.. And then turn off sync completely in your Google account settings....and see how it is then. If it still happens, its an app for sure. You'll have to track it down by process of elimination. If all that stops it, then turn things on one at a time....with a few hours in between...until you catch the culprit.

Good luck!!
