Hi guys,
I've a XT1068, does anyone have the same problems with the battery?
I was not using my phone where the battery started to drop like that. I charge it, then unplug it and then went to bed.
Yes, I've wifi, bluetooth and 2 SIMs with one of them with data always on.
See pics attached.

Same for me. When I bought the phone I immediatelly upgraded to 5.0.2. After upgrading, I did a factory reset through Recovery. Android OS and Android System eat up most of the battery, whereas in normal cases it should be screen and standby (and perhaps some fewquently used app).

Looking at that first screenshot of the battery chart it looks like you have an alarm or wakelock keeping your phone awake when it should be sleeping. Take a look at my Moto G 2014 battery guide

Thats what I was saying. It looks like a wakelock or alarm, which would fall under Android OS and Android System

You are right. And I see that in my xt1032 that still runs on KitKat these wakelocks do not exist. Could this have to do with data wiping? I factory reset the phone from recovery AFTER the 5.0.2 OTA update. AFAIK it fully wipes data and cache.

It does. Install BetterBatteryStats from here and run it for a while. It'll give you details on every wakelock and alarm on the device and how much battery it is using. Then you can use amplify in the tutorial I linked to earlier to configure the wakelocks so they are not consuming as much battery.

Thanks a lot Duck86, but I think that for a brand new phone I should not need to do all these things to get decent battery life. As I said my old xt1032 on kitkat was is to handle two days of significant usage and most of all, if you did not use it the battery did not drain. By the end of the day, battery usage was topped by standby, screen and perhaps an app with frequent use. On top of that, 5.0.2 looks generally unstable compared to the utterly robust 4.4.4 that runs on my xt1032. I get noise and lag in call sounds for example, issues that were not even imaginable on xt1032/kitkat.

So I think I will try to fall back on kitkat. The problem is that I do not know which stock ROM I should install.
My Baseband version is:
MSM8626BP_1032.3105.93.00R EMEA_DSDS_CUST

My kernel version is:
3.4.42-g48d3b85

My system version is
22.21.28.titan_retaildsds.retaildsdsall.en.03 reteu

Build number
LXB22.46-28

Any clues?

"Who is the guilty?" Motorola?..
Guys you know about the bug with the gps? When you turn on and off the GPS on the stock rom and the GPS remain on and kills your battery until you restart the phone? Took me about 2 weeks to figure out. :) ;)

Nothing special, depends on what you were doing. To have a clearer view: Load your battery until it's full and let the phone rest for one or two hours. Make some screens than. You can see what kind of wakelocks disturb the sleep mode of the device.

I took those screenshoots after a the phone was completely charged. I even tried to turn off the GPS as @zman01 said but it didn't make any difference. What is that RLJ thing?
