Battery drain?

    I'm seeing a weird battery drain - anyone else? Or suggestions to fix?

    Symptoms - Wednesday afternoonI took it off the charger and it was at 100%. I used it maybe a couple of times Wednesday night for very short periods, and don't think I used it at all on Thursday. Thursday night I opened it and it was at 9%!

    Thinking I possibly could have left it on and the screen didn't time out, I checked About -> Battery. It showed several hours of no drain after I took it off the charger, then a steady drain down to the 9%. According to 'what's using the battery', 51% was Android System, the rest was mostly screen, with a bit of data. It's been in airplane mode with syncing turned off the whole time.

    Any ideas?

    could be something a soft reset can fix.
    if you have the 4G lte installed this will for cure deplete your battery fairly quickly.

    Tried the soft reset, and have also removed the battery percent widget just in case, haven't had a battery issue since. Finally sending it off for the LTE on Monday.
