    Hello, I have recently gone from 20 hours of solid battery life, regular everyday use (couple calls, couple game sessions (light 20 minutes here and there), browse the web (reddit app), take 10-15 pictures, hours of music playback.

    Now I am seeing it lose 50% in 4-5 hours, the only recent change was rooting it, and leaving it stock (to disable the sound capture when taking a picture. Everything else is the same.

    Here are some pictures of the battery info. Any help is appreciated, thank you.

    From the screenies you linked, it seems you have a wakelock with all the awake time vs screen time. Also you have alot of things running, which might not have been the case before. There is a app called "Better battery stats" it can help you see if you do indeed have a wakelock.

    Thank you, that app helped me find out that the sportcenter wasn't playing well with my phone, looks like I will get my sports scores elsewhere. Thanks again.

    Check out Sportacular. I've been using for several years now and really like it.
