    Default Galaxy S5 Unusual Battery Drain

    Hey all, I've been searching all over the forums regarding this topic but I couldn't seem to find a solution.
    My S5 has been draining its battery fairly quickly. To get an idea, I'll be on Youtube for about an hour after a full charge and my battery will be about 87% ish around there, and that's WITH power saving mode enabled. Earlier I was doing some very light texting for about 10 minutes and it went from full charge to 95% (once again this is with power saving mode enabled). The phone drains even faster without it enabled.
    It appears that Android System and Android OS seems to be draining most of the battery and I need some help figuring what might possibly be making Android System and Android OS drain the battery. I'll post a screenshot of the battery usage below (the screenshot was taken after a restart which is why it is about 2 minutes on battery). Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    "LG G2 huge battery drain lately" should be a useful recent thread. It's not far down but entering that as a search item in the forum will bring it right up.
