Mugatu and others,

Metro bloatware is to blame. I got only 2 hour out of the native phone with all bloatware installed.

I had to:
  1. "Root" the phone,
  2. Install both Super Task Killer and System Tuner,
  3. Kill tasks (in SU Task Killer) one by one to see which had the battery drain (viewing results in System Tuner),
  4. Un-install in System Tuner,
Results 14 hours of battery life.

Oh you will have to redo this every 60-90 days as "updates" will re-install both bloatware from Metro and Google Suite crap (just as bad as the bloatware) and knock out your battery again.
