The first attached graph shows a very well-behaved phone with respect to apps and being awake. **Most feeds are off.**
Note that when the screen is off the phone is not active, other than occasional blips - that's likely my email syncing. If I zoom in more a few more insignificant blips show it awake a little more, but nothing to be concerned about.
The second graph shows the same thing but with something waking the phone constantly. In extreme cases, the awake time degrades the battery curve badly and that's when you need to care.
Charge your phone, take it off the charger, start Gsam, tap back to home, turn your screen off, let it sit for say about two hours.
Check the graphs. If there's an issue, finding it is the next step.
Lower left of the main screen is a hoover, tap it to see what's sucking power.
Title on the next page is a drop down menu.
Get the option to show time held awake.
The resulting list will be your suspects, worse ones at the top. If they aren't obvious, please share those screen shots. From there we can look at the wakelocks next as needed.
Let me know if I'm making sense or not.
