    Am I the only one (hence a problem with my battery) or is it the app?

    EDIT: TSR app is the app that seems to be causing this problem. Didn't make that clear before.

    you might be destroying your battery life by overcharging your phone or leaving it on constantly, which is what happens with rapid battery drain mostly

    I don't overcharge it which leaves your second option,
    leaving it on charge constantly or not switching the phone off?

    Meaning screen on time. You might need to stop all apps running background. I have an S7 edge, so I use device manager to do that

    Sometimes but there's no point doing that because it doesn't seem to charge if I do.

    TSR app :lol:
    Other apps don't drain my battery, like ITV player, or game apps.

    Interesting, chances are it's something to do with the app itself if it's just that and nothing else. What phone do you have?

    It could be your actual phone. The battery doesn’t charge to full capacity after several hundred charges

    Though the amount of time I spend on TSR might also play a part. :angelblush:

    So I need a new phone? I could just delete the app and that would be easier but the app is convenient for some things.

    Same. TSR app is at the top of my list, more than my screen takes. All my other apps are below it and I use them just as much.

    what % battery usage is showing for the TSR app? Mine is 3% (also Android). In comparison the old app (also running) is 1% with the same amount of screen usage (40 mins).

    So yes the new app is a heavier drain.

    Then its probably just the app that consumes too much info. How much does it drain in the background? It could be because it continually refreshes for notifications.

    Right I've had a look around and while I don't personally own the app, it is known to drain lots of battery. For now, I'd delete the app and use TSR in browser until the issue is addressed.
