    I just noticed that my phones battery has been dying faster than usual. I checked my battery in the settings and my up and awake time are exactly the same. I know this is from a rogue app but how do i know which one it is?

    Try system panel and/or spare parts to try and diagnose.

    I'm not familiar with system panel or spare parts. But, I once had a problem like this and used OS Monitor to find the offending app.

    This probably goes without saying but have you tried the standard reboot yet?

    I tried OS monitor and the only thong running is Android system at 95%. I have never seen this before. Why is it running so hard and how do i stop it?

    I have tried all of these apps and the only thing out of the ordinary that is running is android system. I dont know what to do, all i know is that it is destroying my battery. I have tried rebooting, battery pull leaving it off, leaving it on, trying to kill android system....nothing is working.

    Well, you could try a factory reset. Kind of a PIA but it may cure it.

    Another possibility since you can't pin it down to a specific app is that you may have a bad file on the SD card. I've heard of this before on this forum and others. Solution is to hook up the phone in disk drive and move all your files over to the PC. If there's a bad file(s), they will error during the transfer so you can get rid of them. Hopefully it's a file you put there like a pic, vid, etc rather than a system file. Once the card is empty, reformat it, move all the files back and reboot.
     
    Touk and xkingofgodzx like this.

    Thanks every one for trying to help out. Iowabowtech you saved the day. I didnt think about the r2d2 crap i installed on my phone so i figured it had to be that stuff. Well i deleted all of it and my phone is back to normal. Thanks for the help.
