Anyway, looking at your screenie, your phone is down to 50% and your screen was on for less than 2 hours. Barbz comment earlier indicated she had a screen time of 2 hours and 3 minutes and was down to 57% remaining.....that to me looks like her phone is acting normal especially when I compare it to actually only had your screen on for 2 hours out of those 2 days. She is a power user while you seem to use your phone less.

I'll re-admit that I am certainly no expert and I am just trying to learn like a lot of people here, but just wanted to share my thoughts and if I'm wrong, by all means correct me.
My name is something I've had for years I just made up for one of my first email accounts. "Tight Life"
I don't use my phone that much but that's how I get the longer period of life. I understand your post and thank you.
If I were to guess what I would get on a full charge if using heavy screen time (no games, just web stuff/videos) I'd probably be able to get 5 -6 hours screen time w/ 24 hour life.
I think I've got this battery tweaked pretty good, but like I said, that's just me and my particular situation.
I also use Easy Battery Saver and use it's advanced setup. I have pretty much everything disabled in it's settings except the data/wifi monitoring and Night mode set to 11pm-830am (keeps mobile network disconnected during period)

To give you an idea of what my problem was, take a look at this screenshot. The phone would never sleep. Just draining the battery.
