    Default Galaxy S5: Phone won't hold a charge. Have already replaced it once.

    Received AT&T Galaxy S5 through the mail via pre-order on 4/10. That battery would drain completely three times a day. I am not running any draining apps. Bluetooth and location both off. Display is as dim as I can manage. Power saving on. Drained fully and charged fully several times. AT&T agreed to replace the phone with a new one, which I got 4/14. Same exact issue with this one. Drained fully in about 8 hours, charged to 100%. After removing from charger and rechecking 15 minutes later, was down to 92%.

    Could I have possibly gotten 2 lemons in a row?
    Any tips?

    How's your reception? A weak signal is a battery killer.

    Thanks for the input. Looks like Clock and Android System are using 70% of my battery power.
