    My battery is draining EXTREMELY fast at seemingly random times. I attached a screenshot of what's happening. Please help!

    Have you checked your screen timeout settings to make sure it's not too high? Also how is the brightness set, having this too high and a high screen timeout setting will murder any battery?

    Try doing a factory data reset.

    Screen timeout is set to 1 minute and brightness is on auto. It functions as normal , and then all of a sudden it drops to "Critical Levels" within a minute or so

    The reset is what I did first, but the problem persists

    Rogue apps running in the background can also cause battery drain. But you said you already did a reset. Could it be a bad battery?

    If the situation doesn't change after a factory reset, it could be the battery that needs to be replaced.
