I think this is pretty standard. My s5 drains at about the same rate. Try turning your mobile data on only when you need it. You can also try flashing a different kernel (that works in your region) to see if that helps.
There are lots of answers that are right and go into depth. But IMO it can be put really simply in a formula: Battery = Charger - Phone I.e. if the charger is putting more current in than the phone is drawing then the battery will still charge (albeit slower than if the phone was off). If the phone is using more current than the charger is putting in, then ...
One word answer : "Yes" Yes smartphones use your battery while in use even when on charging, But it is not a good practice to use mobile while charging because it Slowly kills your battery life.
Of course your device requires power to run – whether you've set it for charging or not. Question is: Does it use more power than it gets by charging? Which depends on multiple factors: Your "power source". USB only charges with 500 mW (USB2) resp. 900 mW (USB3), A/C with up to 2 W. Your devices power consumption. Depending on what it's doing. Display ...
Power is consumed by the phone from the battery when charging, if in use, as in your case. Point to understand here is that two simultaneous processes are happening, of topping up and draining. If the battery charging algorithm and implementation in OS is not well designed and implemented, there's a possibility that this situation ends up "confusing" the ...
It doesn't harm your phone..it restrict background data which means you will not receive notifications of mail or messenger while doing other stuff. And some apps like Google Play won't work.
Yes. Phone does use power from battery when recharging. Although thats something which would more likely depend on how phone is designed, so it may not always be true... but most phones are this way. I am basing my answer on a test I did. I reduced the charging voltage while at the same time making my phone (my old Samsung Galaxy S3 I9300) use high battery ...
Here is my phone's (Note 4 Edge) warning screen for "restrict background data". The implication is that this is a feature meant to protect users with miniml plans from accidentally incurring charges. It's also darn handy when travelling overseas or out of plan range. I do not expect it would hamper performance, but may cause some functions to not work at ...
Findings on the battery-life claims made by manufacturers Note that this answer can't cover every manufacturer and/or device. Information about this topic is not well documented and I had luck to find the following links and sites. If you encounter new Information then please edit this answer or leave a comment with the source of your new found information. ...
Actually, after hours of scouring the forums, I finally contacted HTC via chat. Right away, they said to power off the device. Then hold the volume down, volume up, and power buttons all at once for...3 mintes?? Yep. You hold all three physical buttons for a full 3 minutes. He said this resets the battery logic, and how the battery talks to the software to ...
First, you might want to see about the battery. See if you can go to your service provider and see if they can swap out your battery for a newer one If step #1 doesn't work, you might want to power it on the way you been using it and go to your battery usage and see what's currently using you battery, then stop or force stop those apps. After that, backup ...
Proper explanation is fairly technical, so am answering in broad terms (you can skip the links if you don't want to get into nitty gritty) Charging rate is a measure that governs at what current a battery is charged and discharged. At 1C, a battery rated 1,000mAh charges at a current of 1,000mAh. In an ideal world the battery would be fully charged in 60 ...
My guess is the problem is going to get worse, theoretically, since I an still on 4.2.2, so can't speak with practical experience. Going by this, Android 6 has a great auto back up system, key changes are: In addition to app data it saves your settings also Reinstalling apps comes with data of those apps. Games saved with 'Saved Games' feature of Google ...
For starters, try changing the charger Next,power off the phone Remove battery and physically check if it is hot. If it is, try to minimise number of apps, reduce screen brightness, turn off GPS, sync and try charging after battery cools. If battery temperature is normal, connect charger again. If error persists, take battery out for 15 or 20 seconds, ...
t turns out I have (had) two separate issues: I had a bum battery. No combination of cable/charger would charge it correctly. I had the battery replaced and noticed that it was still not charging correctly and so posted the question. I should have done more research. Samsung devices (mine at least) seem to detect when they're being charged by a ...
Same thing happens to me. Normally all phones heat up there are some which are a bit pro at that. if u keep a phone of that sort under pillow (cloth). There wont be a method for heat to escape. So it will continue getting hotter. The reason for battery drain is cos the energy stored in the battery is being released as heat. So don't keep phone under the ...
It's a scam. Android app cannot access physical battery directly. The battery file is just an interface for Android with value provided by the battery's sensor. Again, a sensor only reads data; it cannot write/modify anything. An article on Android Police explained this very well, Battery not working correctly? Well, just defrag it! It's all so obvious ...
I can say %99,9 of all apps that claim to fix battery, get you longer battery life, better CPU usage, better RAM management, are completely useless wastes of battery, CPU and RAM usage. That app is no different.
Don't know about the verbose log but for the battery drain issue, i may suggest you to try the 'Battery Calibration' app(requires device to be rooted). I own a Samsung galaxy S3, had similar issues but found significant improvement after following the steps detailed in the app.
I dont think there will be any battery capacity problem with full charging. I am using Huawei Ascend Mate (last 2.5yrs) and OnePlus One (1.2yrs). And never saw any degradation. Backup is still same as it was,3days and 2 days of normal usage. On moderate usage 2 days and 1.5 day and on extremely heavy usage 14hrs and 8 hrs.
There could be three reasons to this (not in any order) : Battery lived it's life. Fuel Guage drivers corrupted. To rule this out, i suggest back up your data and with your recovery wipe clean all Cache and system and flash stock(not sure if you cleaned fully when you flashed a ROM) If the problem continues, it is likely that it is not a driver ...
@VenomGT rightly pointed out the 'new feature' which affects the battery. You might also want to adjust your settings to not use wi-fi when your screen is black/off. To do that, use: Settings -> Wi-Fi -> Advanced -> Keep Wi-Fi on during sleep.

A few days back I had the same problem and I was able to fix it! Now all you need to do is go to Settings → Location → options (3 Dots top right corner) → Scanning → Uncheck Wi-Fi Scanning. This is for Marshmallow update.
