    Default Sprint LG G2: Why is Bluetooth using battery after KitKat?

    Title says it all. Before kitkat Bluetooth was never in my usage stats. After, it is there and using battery. Thing is, its not turned on, nor do I use it. Today for instance says its been on 1 1/2 hrs. Any thoughts?

    Same here. I always have Bluetooth disabled. Nevertheless, it seems to consume battery in the background, ever since the KitKat update.

    I just noticed that. That's weird, not really draining much of my battery though.

    Me too. So at least it is not just me. Very strange...this has to be a bug in it. But it is not one I've heard of before on the web.

    Hold down power and volume down until it snaps. Otherwise slide up from the nav bar to quick memo and save that way

    I believe they said they can't add the screen shot that was already taken through the app just saying

    EDIT: Apparently GSam Battery Monitor only shows the last 15 characters of the process it is watching. So "droid.bluetooth" is the same. Which leads to the question of why does GSam Battery Monitor report 0's, while the G2 doesn't.

    ----

    Something interesting on this...

    I use GSam Battery Monitor and it is reporting 0.0% for Bluetooth. However the battery app (like all of you have been showing) shows around during 4% usage (with high cpu values and keep awake time).

    GSam is watching the process "droid.bluetooth" . I used OS Monitor and I see "com.android.bluetooth" process running.

    Could this simply be a matter of something monitoring the wrong process? My battery life is still amazing....

    Yup, I never use bluetooth and it's off, yet it's accounting for 6 to 7 percent of my daily use.

    Seriously just looked and Bluetooth reported 48%...VS980 stock/rooted

    I have also noticed a 4% battery drop in 30 minutes from unplugging in the morning to me getting to my train station, and not using the phone at all. And a normal 15% drop while on train (SiriusXM playback, not stream and a little browsing the web) is now a whopping 40%!

    You know what's funny about this? Just drove for 6 hours using Bluetooth to stream an audiobook. Guess what my Bluetooth percentage was? 5%
