    Nexus 6P Terrible Battery Life

    Hey all, new user here. I am getting horrendous battery life in my 6P, and I just replaced the battery with an OEM one!
    I can never make it past 2 1/2 hours of screen on time. Any suggestions? All the stuff that people suggest to turn off, I do. Like location, app battery optimization...nothing works.

    Sounds like rogue apps burning power, I'd suggest you save all pertinent data, pictures etc and do a factory reset, only reload necessary apps to start.

    I did, I've deleted everything I don't use, I close out everything I dont need. I used fastboot and downgraded to 6.0 with no changes.

    Install GSam Battery Monitor from the Play Store and use App Sucker to find out if you have a rogue app.

    Restarting in safe-mode may help you determine if it's an app or not as well...

    Thanks for the Gsam tip G, had forgotten about this app... Downloaded again. Very helpful.

    Elemental x kernel and tweak it to better suit your usage. Better battery life
