I'm experiencing huge drain on standby. I even have ultra saving mode on with wifi, sync, and location on. I attached the screenshot of my battery usage. Is that normal? It was on standby 95% of the time.

I have a A2017U, running on B05.
As discussed elsewhere, battery management settings are very aggressive. Excessively so.
On the positive, battery life is amazing. I get over 6:30h SOT.

Make sure that you do not have scanning enabled under wifi. and location only on when needed. or off in general. only really used for gps

There is obviously an app keeping your phone awake. Use wakelock detector or better battery stats from playstore to expose this app.

I guess I had a faulty unit. I already returned it and got another one. So far, I think it's been better but I need to test more in the next few days to actually know. I've been doing the same thing on the new one and it's currently at 64% now at 2:17pm from 78% at 5:30am. In comparison, my old phone must be at 40% now.

My latest stats on the new phone. Seems improved a lot but still not very impressed. Also what do you have for Android OS on your memory usage? Does it seem too high from the screenshot?

Same with me. Battery drain over night is some 3 to 4 per cent only with two sims active. My last phone was rooted and the over night drain was 15 per cent at least with greenify and doze on. I doubt, if I will ever root this mobile. As long as it runs so smooth, I prefer to have fun in the sun

Pleasantly surprised with this phone (US version). Coming from a Mate 8, with superb battery life I was a little concerned for those heavier days. 2nd full day, light use, 50 minutes OST, 10 hours off charger and still 80% left. Nice job ZTE!

After B08 update battery life is insane and I mean it. Right now I'm at 72% with 2h50m of screen on time. I might be able to achieve 9 hours of SOT if nothing goes wrong.

Thoroughly impressed with battery life compared to my g5 and v20. Better than my previous op3 (which was good on its own). Honestly not far off from my old mate 8 in use(mate kills it in standby though)

I turned on smart battery (or how it's called) tonight before I charged my phone on slow charging. And in 7 hours it drained 60% :D Battery stats only show WiFi and Phone radio for 6h 59min.

I have A7 for 1 week now, have to charge every morning before work. During those 10 hours before I get back home is average time I have phone in my hands is 60mins. At home 30-90mins. Next morning I have 20-40% left. GSam and inbuilt battery stats show nothing suspicious. Also without smart battery overnight it never drained more than 2%. Walking and listening to music for exactly 30mins drains no battery at all with 32ohm over ear headphones. And then the interesting part begins. Tried different days turning WiFi off, tried with mobile data off (and wifi on), tried both on. But at work it always drains 40-60% with those 30mins SOT. While being in my pocket and reading reddit on lunch time.

Once I fell asleep and phone was playing youtube for 5 hours and drained I believe 60% so I think battery is okay. Fully charged it says I have 34 hours left.
Everyone post here about their huge SOT times, but I dont think I could ever get somewhere close to 3 hours if I tried. I dont have screen brightness on lowest, it's 2nd setting from lowest.
Is there anything else to check battery stats without inbuilt **** and GSam?

How do you people get those long SOT times? Light on lowest, wifi off, gps/bt/nfc off?
I have no idea either. Right now I'm at about 4 1/2 hrs of screen on time and about 28% battery left. I could probably stretch it to 5 or 6 but I don't want to have to disable everything. I'm guessing people who get 7+ are special use cases.

For me, according to GSam, the biggest (by far) battery consumer is the screen. So just the act of using the device sucks down the battery, go figure. It barely loses any battery during standby.

    I'm really impressed by the battery on the A7. I've had 3.5 hours of sot and 20% left even after caning it with DS Audio, 4 hours of internet radio, 50 photos plus editing and lots of surfing.

    Doze is extraordinary. Check out last night's battery consumption (I really must get to bed earlier).

    My buddy has this phone and literally flawless. i mean it works. it lasts. its powerful. has amazing SQ. and im over here with a friggin note 7 barely squeezing 16 hours out of it with3-4 hours DOT/SOT.

    Not to mention XDA and everyone gets it wrong. its a 3250mah battery not a 3140mah

    Got ,5 and a half hours yesterday. :) I honestly average 5 hours. Battery life has improved significantly with this smart power voodoo on. It doesn't affect performance unlike it does on tw.

    I notice more apps are closed in background when I have smart power on.. Like I'll be able to have about 5-10 apps open with smart power on.. But 15-25 with it off.

    I get an extra hour sot with smart power on.

    And I took quite a few pictures that day.. Totally thought I was going to toast my battery.. But it held up better than any of my samsung devices..
