    Last week, my battery started draining from full to completely empty (phone turns off) in about 10 hours with only moderate usage. I can't even make it through a workday now, and I used to be able to go all day and all night?! I tried everything I could find online, to no avail.

    Battery consumption (top 4 items combine for 70%):
    • Google Play Services 30%
    • Gmail 19%
    • Screen 12%
    • Android OS 8%

    So last night, I did a factory wipe, re-rooted, and spent hours configuring it like I like it. I also disabled the 4.4 OTA update (again). I updated a few key apps, like Gmail and Google Maps, but I am not planning to update any other apps for now, until I see whether my battery life has improved or not.

    I agree. The turning off google location settings did the trick. Very thankful to the tip. Also, I downloaded mapquest to use GPS instead of giving access to google location settings when I had to use maps. It is not as good as google maps but not too bad either. I also have disabled things like Deezer, knox and quite a lot of stuff that got into my mobile after updating from 4.1.2 to 4.3 versions of android. I did do a factory reset through Samsung Kies 3.0 but had to do it only once (which was many months ago). Of late, I have managed to touch 3 days 1 hour with 26% remaining but I had turned off internet access in all ways for few hours on each of the days in between, when I was sleeping... My worry now is whether to go for the 4.4.2 update or not? Kindly reply please if possible. Many thanks.
