Default Random battery life decreaae

I've been monitoring my battery life since I bought my z1 compact since I bought it in the end of April.

When I bought the phone, I could get about 5-5,5 hours of screen on time. For the last 3 days, I get about 3-3,5 hours.

Is my battery already dead? I charge phone every night, even when it's not lower then 50. Is it bad to charge phone all night?

Download some wakelock detector, and see whether it is going to deepsleep at all or not. (I personally using betterbattery stat). If it is not going to deep sleep for a long period, try investigate what app preventing it.

I had issue last week when k9-mail had a data issue and try to sync all the time (i think...). It force the phone to never goes to deep sleep when on 3g/4g. As a result, my phone battery was down to 50 from 100 just in 5 hours!!

If you have a back up, try restoring it and update some app one by one (or alternatively uninstall app one by one) until you find the culprit. It will be easier if you use wakelock detector though

PS: at the very least, try to upload the battery usage screenshot

Thank you. Sorry I didn't have much time yesterday. I will try to see if better battery stats will do the trick. I will upload screenshots when I see bad battery stats
