do you sleep for days? lol

sounds like a defective battery, not too many things except voice calls and wifi should drain in less then 7 hours

Of course it's going to die If the screen is on and it's not plugged in. That's why there is an auto lock to turn the screen off in a few min.

thats what im saying unless we dont understand him but he know says he tested the "lock" test makes me wonder what he was doing if he wasnt locking manually or having it set to auto lock

Yea,I'm guessing your right because he said it doesn't happen during the day. I would assume it's locked then.

so scren dimmer does not effect battery during the hours your awake?

something has to be waking up the screen while you sleep then, looks like if lock works just get in the habit of manually sleeping/locking it before you go to sleep, but that is wierd it only effects during a certain 8 hour block and not the other 16 hours of the day

You must "lock" it to completely turn off the screen. The dim screen will drain the battery.

I know this is old I just saw this and have to ask... So you REALLY dont lock your phone at night? That is
1) Pointless
2) Stupid
