Hello guys, i recently came across a small drain from 5%-0% battery almost 5 times.
I am not a power user, i mostly listen to music,use camera and browse the net, (NO GAMES).I own the phone for about a month which came out of the box with android Marshmallow and almost 50% battery.
I'd be glad if ppl could give me explanations about the drain and tips to fix that.
Thanks in advance!

Good day P Simon, can be a lot of things. Can be a app that drains your device, might be your screen brightness on your device. Check on your device in settings what drains your battery the most and work from there I would suggest. Hope it helps.

Thanks for replying Jacques,i use my phone only for camera,music and browsing, no other apps, screen brightness is mostly on very low and screen drains the most of my battery. (although when i firstly got the phone i kept playing real racing 3 heavily for 3-4 days). Although battery life is incredible, my problem is that after reaching 5% battery life it goes 0% in just some seconds, without even using it,and i'm afraid it might get worse.

hi, i have small battery drain also.. in 2 and a half hour, my battery down from 100% to 98%.. is it because of AOD feature? is it normal because i enabled AOD? i frequently do the device optimization, i only have few apps coz my device is just a week old.
