    By chance, do you have the "In-Pocket Detection" turned on in the display settings? I thought this was a nifty option at first, but decided to turn it off due to the battery drain it caused.

    Going CDMA only will conserve battery. I do it from time to time but since I have chargers in my vehicle, home and work , I usually stay in CDMA/LTE. That was the big 'hook' that sold the device so I may as well take advantage of it. YMMV.

    Welcome aboard Haring Dagta.

    "Root" or root access allows you to have control over your device. You are given super user permissions which allow you to alter things not normally accessible. It's sort of like having administrative privileges to change anything you want. It also opens the door to allow you to damage your phone if you remove or alter something that shouldn't be. That isn't common, but it is possible. Root also opens the door to install custom operating systems and more powerful apps, and allows you to delete or Freeze bloatware on your device.

    Not to worry, unless you get really carried away there are files available to reset your phone back to stock in the event you do something you shouldn't have.
    If you find yourself in a fair fight.....your tactics stink!

    Thanks for the suggestions.

    So far, I haven't found what is using the accelerometer yet. It hasn't been the 4G, sync, background data, apps, in-pocket detection, etc. I did a battery reset and the drain seems to have improved pretty significantly, though the sensors are still showing very high usage.

    This is a shot in the dark, but you aren't using a live wallpaper that reacts to movement, are you?

    No, I'm using a static wallpaper. No idea why the accelerometer is showing so much usage.

    So now my OS is using a lot of battery life, and my Maxx is barely lasting a day now. Here's what BA Battery is reporting.

    I'm doing a factory reset now since that's what I'm always saying to do.
