    Hi guys I don't know if this has been mentioned but after the recent update my battery life is nowhere near as good.

    I left it idle last night at 12.10am it was on 92% and this morning when I picked it up at 8.00am it was down to 72% it is saying device idle at 17% and cell standby at 15% I noticed after the update it chang3d som3 settings and I am wondering if there are some settings I should change back but I am new to this phone so I can't remember any of them I also have no idea how to post a picture on here so I can't do that but any help is much appreciated.

    Ahhh well that's interesting so it isn't just me, the battery life on this phone was superb and now while still being good it needs to be charged after one day whereas before I could octen go two days before a charge

    Hi guys,

    There are widespread reports of the 4.1.2 + Exynos patch update did take a toll on battery performance. Like you say, it's still good but it's not as great as it used to be. Some people report that it gets better after doing a factory reset, but after tinkering so much with my phone and having so many apps installed, that's an option I'd rather not take, so let's hope Sammy pushes a fix soon...

    You could try to remove sim card for a few minutes. Also, try to clear cache

    It seems I had the battery issue for a few days but then it resolved itself. I rebooted phone (just a power restart) and after a day or so it was back to normal.

    Keep in mind after an update, some settings may reset. For me, I had all my Google location services turned back on which was creating a huge drain. While this may not happen to everyone, I would suggest looking around the settings to make sure everything is setup properly.

    I'd also give Better Battery Stats a try. It will tell you exactly what's using your battery. It's how I noticed my Google location settings were reset as when I looked in BBS I seen Google location services using up a lot.

    I mentioned this in another thread, but going into the Google Now settings and disabling a lot of location based cards (photo spot, sports, and other things) helped tremendously. Before Google maps would keep my phone awake for 1hour and 20 minutes and now that's down to just 18 minutes. It's a significant improvement un battery life too.
