30 hours probably isn't too bad, especially if you use your phone a lot. If you're in an area where reception is poor, this will also have a negative effect on battery. There are apps on the Play Store ('Tasker' is one, 'Macrodroid' is another) that you can use to setup macros which perform certain tasks/functions based on the conditions you provide. ...

What you need to do is delete your weather app, revert the Google Play Store to the factory version, and then wait a day or so. In my personal experience, this will stop both of them from transmitting so much data, and restore your battery life to normal levels.

If the phone is idle the device enters in a sleep mode, pretty much what you described in your first paragraph. It suspends all the background activity and saves battery for a long time. Doze mode is enabled by default in devices running ...
