    As the title suggests, just installed the latest update and my battery is now going to be empty in 3 hours.

    When I installed the update I was at 91% and it's now at 60% in an hour.

    None of the versions prior have had this issue ๐Ÿ˜•

    Did you do a reboot and check for a rogue app

    I don't have any idea which device you are having a problem with but if you're thinking the beta 5 is the problem, you don't have a Nexus 5x. I do and it's doing fine. I downloaded beta 5 two hours ago and I'm not having a problem.

    Battery stats aren't advising so far of apps using the battery. Running this on a Nexus 6. Worst performance of battery I've ever seen on all releases since day one of Nougat being available

    If it's not rogue apps, maybe the download & installation misfired somehow. Battery life on mine seems unchanged so far: it's been great on all of the preview builds. I lost maybe 4% overnight, and I'll find out this evening how DP5 compares to DP4.

    Have you tried clearing your cache partition? How's the phone set for available storage and memory?

    I'm at 35% now and have turned off battery saver at 2pm just to see, I've uninstalled the last app I installed 2 days ago, just to see.

    Wiped cache too

    Sounds like there's a factory reset in your future.

    I'm going to see how I get on after a full charge, but you may be right.

    However now at 33%

    At least 2%/hr beats 60%/hr. Good luck.

    FYI, my battery is draining more quickly than usual. I'm already at 76% after 5 hours of typically light use. It took more like 8 hours to get me to the middle 70s on DP4.

    Well I've got home and plugged in and got a full charge and things seem back to how they were previously.

    So far, only 3% loss in about 24 hours on my Pixel C. So, it doesn't seem to be DP5 itself.

    I am facing the exact same problem, not sure what the resolution is or how to undo the latest release. I updated last night (7/19) while it was charging. I rebooted twice and it rebooted itself once. Any suggestions or help?

    as a latest update, I am traveling so my battery is charging on USB. Sad part is that, the battery draining faster than it can charge.

    Android 7 beta 5 is apparently not the problem. A lot of people are running it and not having the problem you've describe. So, what can it be? I suppose it could be a corrupted download. If that were a possibility I'd do a factory reset. With Google Backup it's fairly quick and painless. It could be conflict with a third party app. If that were a possibility I'd boot into safe mode and see if the problem persisted.

    I've had one app I use a lot that doesn't play nice with Android 7 betas so far. It happens, especially with betas.

    Since the update, I'm seeing my 2nd Gen Moto 360 running dead by 1pm (7am off charger). Could be a crazy coincidence but usually get 30hr or so.

    I'd advise removing the last app that you installed before the download and see if that works. That fixed it for me

    Somebody on G+ said the same thing about his Huwawi watch draining by mid-afternoon since having Preview 5 beta installed on his phone.

    Maybe there is something to it then. Start digging

    My 6P is doing fine however I didn't do an OTA, I installed the factory image which has the side effect of doing a factory reset. Try doing a factory reset, that might fix your problem.

    My issue seems to have resolved, although I haven't really done anything. I just let it die and recharged and that seem to have done it. It strange as I have done multiple hard reboots and the phone itself rebooted multiple times. I have N Beta on Nexus 6

    Sometimes the OS just needs time to stabilize. After I installed DP5 on my Nexus 6 my battery life looked like it was draining faster, but after a couple days it seems normal again. This also my first DP install directly from Marshmallow.

    I have a 1st gen Moto 360 and the battery seems to be working as usual on that device as well. I'm not seeing the same drain others are.

    For everyone who's having the battery problem, have you tried wiping the cache partition?

    Did a reset on phone and watch. All is well in the world again. Literally had to set the watch on charger for a third time today though. Holy drain.
