    Take a screen shot of your Device monitor, battery and post it in the thread. There's where you may know your answer which app is running and draining your battery.

    Z30 STA100-2....

    Its me.. I forgot to log in in the first place
    I think its because of this app I installed and now I restricted its access to run in background
    Anyway thanks
    Just one more thing... in my usage
    ( text a lot - no browsing - no music - on2G network roaming - no calls - few hours socials on wifi) how many hours this phone can stay on?

    Hi Pesamix.
    With the usage you describe, unless your Z30 does a lot of scan for antenna (seems you are in a bad coverage area) anything under 12 hrs would sound abnormal to me.
    FWIW since it really depends on networks stability...

    Bad coverage area for 3g yes so I use roaming.. 2G is fine here.
    My phone stands on for all day and in device manitor section says it can be up to 3 days on!
    Is that ok?

    Check for if there's an app running even when you're not using it. Widgets also consumes battery life. And oh just some fyi, battery life will drain really really fast if you place your phone in a very hot places...based on my personal experience.

    APC? Z10 ?
