    Default Ridiculous Battery Drain from Google Services

    So this is for my dad's AT&T S4 which he uses very rarely but needs it to last for the whole day. Its worked great but in the last week the battery is draining like crazy. I will post screenshots which speak for themselves. Also no apps were ever open or running during this time.

    Google Services gets out of control sometimes. A couple of suggestions - open the Google Settings app and disable Google apps from being able to access the phone's location at any time. I'd also suggest checking Google+ sync settings. Also, is he using Google Now? It's reported to be a battery hog. You might also look into the Snapdragon Battery Guru app, which helps control app syncing behavior. Finally, does he need to have wifi on 24/7, as indicated by your screenshots?
