Hi,
My WiFi is off (and has been off since I bought the phone as I never ever use WiFi) yet it's draining my battery.
It's kinda hard to understand or troubleshoot...... attached some screenshots, any ideas would be appreciated. thanks.

It could be Google's location service, which also scans for Wi-Fi network even if it's switched off. Try going to Settings >> Wi-Fi >> Advanced and make sure that "Scanning always available" is disabled.
