Thanks for the suggestion. Ive actually tried that but the results were worse. Faster batt drain in my case.

Did you disable autosync, Sprint Connections Optimizer and location services? Some apps like facebook also kill battery.

Yes, I have. I appreciate your suggestions but I need some more in depth discussion on this. Im not new to the phone or android and I know what to look for in most instances. This time Im stumped. Im trying to recalibrate the batt again too after a third restore. Same results.... and that bluetooth running? I dont get that at all. Im starting to think its a bug or error in reporting, or another service is causing it to run. Dunno. Im stumped.

Try flashing the ZVC.tot because my batterylife dropped after OTA as I think something screwed up. Now its better than 4.2.2.

Thats gonna be a last resort. I cant see a tot making a difference here. Im still stock unrooted. Im gonna reroot today and debloat and see if that helps any. Id rather have a better idea of what processes are running amok first tho, so im kinda gonna have to root. Anyone know a basic and easily understandable process monitor app?

Better Battery stats or Wakelock Detector might help.

This Bluetooth thing is irritating. Went from 93% to 34% in like three hours and Bluetooth is responsible for even more battery drain than the screen. I've never even turned it on. Just toggled it to see if maybe that's the case and it just got stuck or something. So we shall see. Has anyone reported it to LG?

I think it may be a reporting error because it showed like 6-7% use on bluetooth but its not affecting my battery life.
