Default Is my battery life normal?

I went to bed last night after unplugging my phone at 100% and woke up to find it at 84%. After browsing through the Internet for around 30 minutes, the battery dropped another 10%. I just downloaded gsam and will post up a screen shot after a full days of use. But I have seen people who can go 7 hours continuous YouTube streaming with this phone. I've owned this phone for almost 2 weeks.

i have found that my M8 tends to drain quite a bit in deep sleep. I had a nexus 5 and with everything off except wifi, i'd lose 3-4% in 8 hrs. compared to the same settings and a 10% drain on my m8.

Go to settings, and battery history. If 3. bar is always active, then something is unnecessary draining your phone. I don't know what. Download Clean Master and clean RAM, or just reboot the phone, and that issue will probably dissappear

There's definitely something wrong. Download GSam to find out which apps are draining your battery, then fix their settings (ie. social media apps are always syncing by default, turn that plague OFF). I suggest to freeze all apps you aren't actively using especially those who seem to be draining your battery. On the M8 you should expect at LEAST a full day of heavy usage, ie. 5hrs screen on time + 20 hrs standby.
