    Since 4.4.2 this has happened one time. It's gotten my battery down to 25% in under 10 hours

    It's a bigger power hog than my screen

    Would you be able to take a screenshot for us regarding the battery stats and also your screen on time?

    It's charging now, because I hit 1% battery. Does NFC have anything to do with it?

    I would try rebooting your phone. I've had it happen a few times and that fixed it for me.

    I just started having the same issue with Android System killing my battery. At times, my note 3 is listing it sucking up 46% of the battery. I've done a restart and cleared my cache.

    I'm one of those guys that are always looking at the battery Consumption, I even have a Shortcut of the Battery Apps on my Home Screen, so I can tell you that since I got this phone back in April last year, everything has been constant on battery consumption, always my Screen is the one with the highest usage there, immediately after I updated to 4.4.2 the Android System has been equal or higher than Screen.

    My battery seems to drain faster, but I have noticed that it's strictly related to Wifi, I mean, when I'm at home and connected to the Wifi I can see that even when the Phone is on Standby, my batter is draining faster than ever, when I look at the battery stats I can see that Android System is getting higher and higher numbers, then one time just by curiosity I simply turned the wifi off and suddenly Android System just stopped there and my battery consumption normalized. So next day I saw the same so I turned off the wifi again and I there I had the phone back to normal.

    So, my conclusion after my 2 weeks tests is that for some reason, after Kit Kat our phones are using very different the Wifi and this is causing the Battery Drain issue, now I just turn the wifi off, and just turn it on when I'm using the phone and need faster downloads or don't want to use tons of Cell Data. Try this and see what happens.

    Like I said before, I'm one of the obsessed ones related to battery so I can tell you that I know what I'm talking about and know my phone behavior very well, been monitoring this for 11 months I can assure you that it has been extraordinary consistent and extremely good on battery life, best phone I've had related to battery. Then it came the Kit Kat update, and without changing anything on my network environment, and a full phone reset for the update, since the save day I updated I've been having the issue presented on this thread.

    So I decided to troubleshoot this and what I've found after 2 weeks tests is what I mentioned here, only thing that had stopped the huge and new Android System high battery usage is turning the Wi-Fi off, so, I'm just passing my findings here so others can try, if others have the same results than me, then we can assume that something has changed with the Wi-Fi on the new update and maybe we can let z Samsung know about it.

    Anyway, I just pre-ordered the S5 so I'm just having my S4 until the new one arrived, after that, if it was something with just the S4, it's on you to keep it trying to see what maybe different or wrong now.
