    Thinking my passport is on its way out. Battery only lasts 6 hours now down from a massive two and a half days.
    System process is running 20-30% constantly however not sure if that's normal or not. I've had it years now so suspecting it's the battery on its way out.
    Just hoping it'll last long enough to see what ever new more updated tcl device comes out.

    System is churning too much. It should be around 3-5% at rest. Something is eating up your battery.

    I noticed drop box (android version) was running,however only lightly. I closed it and system utilisation dropped right down.

    It's now down to low single %

    Will keep a watch on this.
    Cheers for the prompt :-D

    Assuming you haven't already done so, it would probably benefit from reinstalling the OS. This can make a massive difference to performance.

    Dropbox apk is a battery murderer. It depleted my battery completely within hours without me even using the phone. It was standby all the time

    To be fair I didn't think much of it just running there at very small % utilisation, however what an impact on the system % util when I closed it!

    Nice bit of code in there...lol

    As they say in Soviet Russia, hands of Dropbox app devs should be cut off.

    Battery life is awful since the 10.3.3 update and unfortunately you can’t go back to 10.3.2.

    Not for me. No difference in my Passport or my Z10.

    Same here, back to well over 24h now on a full charge. Dropbox was the cause of the extreme drain.
    Switched off its ability to run in the background too.

    I had the same issue after the update to OS 10.3.3.2031 and I discovered that the Amazon app drain the battery even if it is not running and once I logged-off the issue has been solved and now the battery last for a couple of days or even more.

    Used to happen to me on my Passport. Try hard reset using volume buttons, sometimes I had to do this twice in a row, then the fast battery drain stopped.

    There's some ways to help the betterylife goes better,but the most important one: Don't use Android Apps.
    In rest time,system procces only take about 1.9%-4%.

    Same thing for me after updating to 10.3.3. Recently reloaded OS and the battery performance is fantastic again.
