Over the past few days, I noticed my battery is dying quickly - even when I've barely used it. I'll unplug the phone and 3-4 hours later, it's at 50% even though I've made no calls or used any data.
It shows that Caller Name ID is consuming the vast majority of the battery. I'm not a subscriber to that service so maybe I should simply disable it?
I have Fast Charging turned on, btw...and leave it plugged in over night. Maybe I shouldn't be using Fast Charging.
Any suggestions? Thanks!!
I want to get your battery life back to normal. You have good instincts with Caller Name ID. If you are not using it, disabling it would be a good place to start. Lets charge the phone up completely. You can then put the phone in safe mode http://spr.ly/6587BGCk1 for a day to see if it is lasting longer once we take 3rd party apps out of the equation.

When you go to 'Settings'>'Battery' under the Device section, you can see which applications are using the largest percentages of your battery. Are there any in particular that seem to be dominating the battery usage?
That seems fairly significant. My phone doesn't even list the Caller Name ID in the list of battery-using applications. Is that a 3rd party application or a system application? If it's 3rd party, I would recommend clearing the app data, force stopping it and uninstall it. Then you'll want to turn your phone off (and remove the battery) and restart it. If it is a system application, there probably won't be an option to uninstall it, in which case just clear data, force stop, disable, and turn off, remove battery, etc.
It could be. Either way, I recommend clearing the app data, force stop, and disable. Then power off the phone, remove battery, and restart the phone. After you've restarted the phone, use it a while for some battery statistics to gather, and then check the battery usage again.
