Method 2: Turn off WiFi in sleep mode

Do you use Wi-Fi connection? If yes, it's important to change the wifi setting so that it turns off when the phone is not being used/asleep. To do this:
  • Go to settings > WLAN > Advanced settings > Keep Wi-Fi on during sleep > select “Never”. In same menu, you can turn off “Always allow scanning” and “Network notification”.

Method 3: Switch SMS Messaging app

This method is a miracle worker for some people. You only need to switch your SMS Messaging app from 3 party to the default messaging app. If you use Hangout, (FB) Messenger, or any other app, simply change it back to the default Messages and your phone battery drain problem is solved.
