    Default Google Play Battery Drain

    I've got a new Samsung Galaxy S5 and the battery is getting killed even when on standby and I've hardly used it all day. I checked in the battery usage app and it looks like almost half the battery use is Google Play doing things (http://i.imgur.com/Hv1cMJU.png).

    How can I make this stop?

    Even when the phone is in power saver mode and just sitting on a table I get barely 12 hours out of a full battery.

    Or is there another type of location reporting? I've had this phone 24 hours so far so am not very familiar with it other than that I've had to charge it up fully twice despite light use...

    Yes, your location reporting is off. Mine is on and set to battery saving. I will have to do some thinking and report back later unless other members have solved it for you.

    Would it be possible for you to test it with a different SIM to see whether that fixes it?
