    this is the 1st ever time it happened to me. My phone is new, only a few weeks old and ever since when i would leave it at night it would only eat up 5% of my battery life even with my data on, at most maybe 10%.

    Now i woke up to find my phone dead from 97% after 9hrs of standby WITHOUT my data on.

    Please help me eliminate/terminate this app if possible.

    i will attach a screen shot of the process/app i found using up 89% of ny battery that is new to me and i just saw this today.

    I've seen this before... What phone/version? There was a bug in 4.4.2 on some devices.. Had to do with third party applications (like Instagram, etc) accessing the camera.

    Is your phone by chance a Nexus 5? I found a ton of articles and forum threads about the specific thing you mentioned about the Nexus 5. As LeoRex mentioned and on other forums Snapchat, instagram and others are calling the camera and that is killing the battery. What apps have you installed in the last week that use camera functions, that could be the culprit.

    Actually... that looks like a Sammy.... I wasn't aware that Samsung's got bit by the camera daemon bug, but that sure looks like it. I can't tell by the pic, but is this still KitKat?

    As Raptor mentioned... are you using any apps that access the camera (outside of the stock camera app)?

    Even though this is like a Band-Aid for a gunshot wound, but a reboot should kill the camera from running. Not a fix, but it should stop it.

    How did you come to that conclusion? Must be a icon in that notification bar somewhere that gave it away, just curious.

    What usually tips it off for me, is the time. Sammy is one of the very few, if not only, OEM that puts AM/PM in the status bar.

    Color scheme, fonts and the lack of a nav bar on the screenshot (meaning HW buttons). Process of elimination. My only unknown is the version (though I am guessing KitKat)

    Hi guys, yes i have a samsung s5 sm-g900f model.
    Well i found a temporary fix i guess from A post that said he just installed the clean master app and cleaned junk files and it took it out of the list.

    I havent used my camera since though coz im scared itll come back but i did open it a few times earlier today and it seemed fine. I keep checking the battery usage list if it showed up again and so far nothing yet. Hope this helps.

    I also got caught in the situation that my Oneplus One s4 battery drains quickly while i didn't play any games on my phone and also had disabled GPS, Bluetooth, Mobile Data, and only had sporadic connections to the net through Wi-Fi. After check the process, i found the Facebook Messenger is a battery hog. After close the Facebook App, the battery drops normally.

    clean master app and cleaned junk files
    Nice advertising Cheetah does, but sorry - that daemon isn't a junk file, it's a necessary file when you're using the camera, and "cleaning" files out of RAM actually costs battery.

    Your phone has a bug - the daemon should have stopped running (it can stay in RAM, that doesn't cost any battery) when you closed the app that was using it. If you use the home button, not the back button, to leave apps, that can cause the problem. The app is still running when you use the home button to get out of it. If you use the back button you close the app, theoretically closing any daemons it's using.
