    Do you seriously have all that active? Its probably not one particular thing. Its probably because you have 20+ tweaks and a theme all running at the same time

    You missing an app that could help, NCSettings. Toggle off edge/3G/LTE when you don't need it.

    Also are you listening to music 24/7 cause in your screenshots you got music open. You aware? Close if not in use, bluetooth off if not in use. Use Auxo to properly close all apps either open running/suspended in the background.

    Not sure what tetherme does but make sure it's switched off when not in use. I suspect it could be a battery hog if it is active.

    A lot of what you got installed looks innocuous enough. Active dock and aquaboard I'm not familiar with but tweaks that deal with graphic elements can cause issues with battery drain.

    Screen brightness set to 80% or less.

    In Springtomize set your lockscreen auto dim to 5 seconds or less.

    How does your battery fair overnight?

    Do you switch the phone off? Are you charging over night? Do you leave it in airplane mode with wifi off? etc etc etc Does it lose charge overnight and if so how much?

    Also check your usage stats (settings>general>usage). Is standby and usage time similar?

    I have batterydoctorpro that has those options there is a indoor and outdoor settings.

    Sort of I listen to music a lot lol but I leave my iPhone locked.

    Tetherme is a way to get the apn settings for iPhones so you can get mms.

    Active dock make your dock lights up an bounce icons when you have a Notification. Aquaboard Is a tweak to have water effects on your ls.

    I did set my brightness to at least 40%

    I leave my phone on and leave it on the charger. Nope I leave it with my wifi on. I have to see how much it loses charge.

    Transparent camera killed my battery when I installed it. It was causing my usage and standby to match exactly. That might be your problem.

    You know what? I think I saw that in my usage it was 28 and 28. Hmm time to remove that. When you removed that did you see a improve battery life?

    Lol...nothing I can do about that. It's the Exxos theme by blue.

    I had several tweaks installed and noticed huge drop in battery life. When I noticed the standby times were identical (4hrs 33min standby and 4hrs 33 usage..)I started uninstalling one tweak at a time. Only problem of course is losing those stats after a respring. After a full charge I started uninstalling tweaks one at a time in reverse. I kept the phone on charge, resrprung then unlplugged. If usage was the same..plugged back in and continued removing tweaks. Transparent camera was maybe the 5th tweak removed and it was definitely the problem. I would have suspected almost anything but something as simple as a clear button..

    Interesting when I left my iPhone before turning on airplane mode when I was sleeping I was at 54%. When I woke up it was at 53%. So I'm thinking the cloud updates are killing my battery. Confirm?

    Edit:I listen to music a lot.......
