    Did not have this problem before, updated to 7.1.2 a few days ago, and now all of a sudden, bluetooth is # 2 on list of battery users.

    Anyone else notice this and is there a fix?

    I haven't noticed any issues with the Bluetooth using more battery than normal. If I notice anything, I will be sure to check in.

    Bluetooth is number 5 on my list. I listened to a couple of hours of music this morning. Not enough to notice more of a battery drain on my phone than normal.

    On 7.1.2

    Overnight battery drain is gone. Bluetooth connection (to car when I get in) has gone wonky again. Doesn't always connect. It wouldn't always connect, the last update it always did connect, now with 7.1.2 it doesn't always connect.

    This crap is still happening, only way around this is to keep bluetooth off.

    Turn on Bluetooth and wait a minute or two.

    Now, go to Settings -> Bluetooth and see if there are any "connected" devices.

    I use Bluetooth earbuds 90 minutes each day plus another 60-70 minutes in the car with Bluetooth connected and Bluetooth never shows up on my battery usage graph at all.

    Seeing the same problem with Bluetooth drain on HTC M9. Bluetooth is #1 on the power usage list.

    I posted an update on the Google product forums about this issue and wanted to share here as well. After June security update plus uninstalling an app (a blood glucose testing companion app that reads from a paired glucose testing machine), this problem went away for me. BT no longer shows up on battery usage and battery life is back to normal.
