Does anyone else struggle severely with DTEK60 battery life?
Hello, I have had my DTEK60 for a few weeks now, I came from an S6 edge.
This battery drain is wonky! I've gone through the typical troubleshooting steps, but to no avail, up to and including deleting all apps, including Facebook and messenger, disabling location services and Bluetooth, deleting all accounts and finally using an auto loader (which is incidentally how I stumbled across this little corner of the internet)
Here are some screen shots of my usage. I am able to get around 11 hours of idle time with around 2 hours of screen on time.
Unfortunately, if this is the norm, I may need to swap back to the s6.
I actually reinstalled Facebook to test it, and it actually made my battery life better. Lol.

My battery almost always lasts a day. My passport was 2 days. Rarely had trouble with battery not lasting a day. Looking at your pic though at a quick glance I'd say turn your screen brightness down. Mine reads around 8% battery usage yours states 28% apps are sucking a lot of power for you too, you use apps that use a lot of location?

I don't really find it a struggle at all. Sure it's not the best battery life out there but with car chargers, and chargers around the home I don't really have an issue and I'm a heavy user

My phone took about 3 weeks to a month to settle down. I was really worried for a while. Now my phone is amazing and possibly lasting up to a day and a half.
Couple things I did:
Turned off / uninstalled Goggle Now
Turned off Google Photos. I had 14,000 pics on the cloud and Google photos seemed to be eating up my DTEK60 syncing all the photos.
Now that my phone is back to normal I will try turning on the apps to see what happens again.
