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:
- "Root" the phone,
- Install both Super Task Killer and System Tuner,
- Kill tasks (in SU Task Killer) one by one to see which had the battery drain (viewing results in System Tuner),
- 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.
