Something is depleating the battery in less than 8 hours of standby with only wi-fi active. Suspect a looping process. Should I do a factory reset?

I completely understand how important it is to make sure your phone has the battery life you need. Let's check our options to improve this! Before a factory reset, you can try running your phone in Safe Mode and see if the battery life is extended. Here's how: http://vz.to/1kw6zVM

Will do. Not a great cell signal here but old flip phone battery lasted 4 to 5 days before it was down to 50%.

Giving it a full charge -

Thanks,

Smartphone batteries don't last as long as the basic phones. Smartphones have more things it does, but poor signal will cause the battery to drain.

I'm most definitely NOT a VZW employee. If a post answered your question, please mark it as the answer.

Check this info.  From settings in the pull down shade go to battery and click  on the battery.  Ckick on Cell Standby.  If you have lost signal it will state the amount of "Time without signal."  that and the screen are huge power killers.

The user asked for the details under the Cell Standby not the general percentage of the battery used.
