    Since the last update from Verizon I have not been able to use Bluetooth due to battery drain. Would this finally be fixed, or should I expect more of the same?

    I can answer my own question. I applied the update to my S5 and it is apparent Bluetooth is still the top consumer on the battery if I choose to leave it on. I think I'm ready to pack it in with Samsung here. Too many nuisance problems.

    I haven't seen any increased battery usage from Samsung devices when using BT. You can't have something for nothing, all this 'stuff' we want on phones uses battery power.

    And "the top consumer" could be using very little battery. Charge the phone to 100% plus about 5 minutes. Then turn BT on. Look after an hour to see what percentage it used. That's percentage of the total used, so look at the battery charge, subtract it from 100, then take the BT percentage of that. Android itself is usually the top consumer (other than the screen, which you should leave off for the duration of the test), so BT should come after Android.

    Screen shot shows a day of battery use. The numbers aren't very different an hour after a full charge and leaving the phone untouched.
