    My wife's s6 has started to drain to 0% in just a few seconds. I can't imagine it being an app that is causing this to happen. It seems random for now. I know it has happened with two GPS apps. One is Runkeeper the other is the Weather channel. I would think that the phone would get real hot if the battery actually drained that fast.

    Hi, it doesn't sound right - can you upload screen shots of the battery stats for us to look at?

    If you google "google play services" and "battery drain" you will find all kinds of problems since the most recent update of google play services. I haven't found a solution yet. I've tried uninstalling google play services but it keeps reinstalling itself causing the battery drain again.

    It seems really odd to drop so fast. The second image was running in safe mode. I think my wife said it was around 42% when she started looking at facebook. Wile she was doing that it had the sharp drop to 0%.

    First guess is something draining that fast is the battery needs to be replaced.

    EDIT: Nevermind,I see that it is an S6. Use GSam Battery app and see if any app is just misbehaving badly.

    I posted 2 of the battery usages. One was in regular mode with the huge drop of 90+% to 0% in one second. The other was in safe mode so only Samsung/Google apps.

    Gsam is a better indicator of battery life than the stock battery graph and may be able to pinpoint the app
