    I have a Samsung Galaxy Core and it drains soo fast.. Once I brought it to school(7:30) it was at 93% (everything was on low power mode) and I opened my phone only about 2 times during that day, so most of the time it was on standby... But when I got home at 4:30.. it was dead already and I had to recharge it.. And whenever I use an app it drains fast like 10% per 5 mins or or 10 mins..

    Well there's your answer. Phone batteries degrade in capacity over time. Depending on usage they typically last between 1 or 2 years before capacity starts to noticeably decrease.

    What app is it that's draining the battery like that, Facebook or something? Because it does sound rather excessive, and Facebook is notorious.

    Remember if your data is in the ON position and you're in a area that the data coverage is poor. Your phone will work harder to stay connected when there are apps running in the background that will suck the life from your phone's battery. I have an old Huawei Ascend I use some times and it will hold a full charge until I get it in a poor coverage area like tunnels, heavy power lines locations, building ect. The more your cellphone searches for a signal the more its processor is working meaning excessive battery drain. To slow that excessive battery drainage, Turn your data off or turn your phone off when it's not in use. Set lock screen to enable itself in a minute or less, turn off vibrate when possible because it uses more power. I recommend using 360 Battery Plus that works really well to control apps that you may have forgotten about that's running in your background.

    Have your phone fully charged and use as you would during the day. Keep an eye on the battery indicator and when it gets low before you plug in a charger go into the settings page, battery settings and look to see what apps are killing the phone.

    2 fingered swipe down and click the battery icon will also go into the battery settings depending on OS version.

    Keep you smartphone mostly on Airplane mode. If it dosen't work use Advanced Task Killer or ShutApp which forcibly closes apps. Sure to check you battery if it's too old. Mostly batteries drain more in 1 to 1 and half year. Change your battery if needed.

    I agree with Airplane mode and replacing the battery, but please don't use a task killer of any kind. It will only make things worse.

    Why You Don't Need a Task Killer.

    Yea agree chances are battery is shot, worth checking what apps are using the battery, but has it had a recent software update? If so could be that a case of backing up and factory reset will help, (sometimes after updates little leftovers of previous FW hang about messing things up, draining battery, bugging system etc which a wipe should fix).

    What lunatic said. Don't forget to check your brightness levels on the phone also, too high with a long screen timeout will result in terrible battery life on the most hardy of batteries.

    GPS drains your battery fast. Faster than most other apps
    Check that app and try setting it to 60 second intervals between updating your location if you don't need the precision.
