Both the phone and that app report that the screen is causing all the battery drain, the few other things listed are using very minimal battery. But this is what I don't understand. The brightness is always either off or on auto. But again, I'm not using my phone much at all. How can the screen be sacking the battery so much when I don't even have it lit/unlocked the majority of the time? I've noticed if i turn off mobile data the battery percent doesn't move but i can't for the life of me figure out what must be running in the background to cause this.
