I'm completely baffled. My phone was fully charged this morning, I read two texts and turned my phone off as I was in a meeting. I've just turned it on and have only 56 percent battery. How could this be?

Hi Ruth,

I thought so, but I just wanted to make sure you knew that it needed to be off.

All the best

Hi Ruth,

You want to turn off background app refresh, not on.

All the best

Well, I have installed 7.11 and turned on background app refresh.
Don't know why I didn't update sooner as it's not to different.

Thanks all for your help in the meantime.
