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?

use a battery stat program like gsam battery monitor to see where it is going. does the phone feel warm ??
great here, 9 hrs in the house overnight, lost 7% or so. WiFi, Bluetooth, location all on.
