    About a week ago I experienced rapid battery drain after a long period (about 4-5hrs os streaming music from Pandora). Part of the time I was streaming music while it was on wireless charging. That night the phone nearly drained overnight which is unheard of. I noticed over the next day battery drain was way faster than normal. Was forced to utilize battery saving setting as a fallback setting during the day, only leaving that mode when I was actually sitting down to read emails and more intensive use... Have found this now to be a great stopgap for battery performance. Have many other Z30 users had to enact this battery saving mode as a normal profile as well? Is this a function of intensive streaming, or just aging and natural decline? Sure happy the battery saving is there!

    Probably the streaming. I don't have any android apps, and my battery is great. I remember when I did have Spotify on here, the battery life suffered..

    It has been my experience that some Android apps can serverely hinder battery life.

    Happened to me few times, even when on wireless charger. Heats up, drains battery.
    Hard reset fixes it. Once every two months, perhaps.

    If this was a one off thing it's possible a stuck or background app process was causing the battery drain, closing the app from Device Monitor or restarting the device could help. Your best bet is to see what Device Monitor says if this happens again.

    I've found that certain android apps tend to drain the battery when left running in the background.
