    My phone is draining at an alarming rate. Even if I turn off auto sync with google accounts as well disabling 4g and wifi, I see my phone drain in a six hour time. It keeps saying the highest on the list is google play services which in a few hours time gets to 14% while android OS is at 11%. Screen is at 1%.

    I am using a Samsung Galaxy S5. I replaced the battery as I saw this happening and the issue didn't seem to change anything.

    Did you just get a new phone and then use some sort of service to transfer the content and configuration to your old phone? I did that a few months ago and notice that google play ran constantly and drained my battery. I eventually fix the issue by factory reset and then redoing it from scratch instead. I think the import setting imported some stuff that may have cause the issue.

    I had to make an account just to reply. Now it is saying Android Systems is taking up the majority of my power with Google Services just 1% behind. I do not have a new phone or transfer. I've had this phone for over 3 years and didn't change anything. Just all of a sudden in the past few days its been draining constantly. I can't make it home without being at 12% power and not every using the phone for anything.

    I just cleared all the google services data but this does not seem to have fixed anything.

    When you click into the battery usage details for Google Play Services what does it say? Is the Keep Awake or GPS high? This should give you some insight as to why.

    If you haven't cleared cache in awhile I would try that, easy fix for a handful of odd problems.
