Can you please guide me on how to diagnose? I have Carat and it isn't reporting anything suspicious.
Oh, you didn't mention this in your first post.
Both having auto brightness is hardly a fair test, maybe he uses his in darkened rooms and you use yours in direct sun.
I notice your phone signal is bad, which could cause battery drain.
I used to get about 3 hours use, auto brightness in darkened rooms, WiFi and data always on. My soft buttons died, sent for repair and now I get 4 hours with similar usage. They said they replaced screen, but they also replaced the case. Have no idea if they replaced the battery. Both phones arrived with an empty battery, but I suspect the first one was empty for longer which may have damaged it.
