    Basically Google services are taking so much of my battery up its insane. Its really annoying as without that I probably could have got close to 2 days of usage. Also its draining a lot more in my pocket like intensely also when I use sometimes it doesn't budge others it eats up battery like a hungry wolf through steak.

    Turn off background sync, disable unused google apps and services from app manager, and turn off data when not in use.

    then try a cache wipe, it may clear out all the things happening in background.

    also, do try to disable any google or other pre-installed apps that you don't use. Some of these things are simply battery killers. i have disabled chrome; drive; play game; play music; google search; google+;hangouts; s health, samsung link, link platform connectivity.

    My battery savings cheat sheet. I don't do all these on all Android devices--just the ones that seem to fix the problem.

    Maps -> Settings -> Location settings

    Turn location reporting and history off

    Settings -> Apps -> All

    Disable Face Unlock and Voice Search/Google Now

    Settings -> Accounts -> Google

    Turn off sync for everything you're not using

    Settings -> Location

    Turn off Location & Google Search, Google's Location Service

    Settings -> Apps -> Running -> Google Services

    See if Google Play Services is running and running
    (Disabling Voice Search/Google Now should prevent
    this happening again)

    Play Store -> Settings

    Turn off Auto-Update Apps & Notification

    Could be corrupted local Google (Play) Services cache data

    Settings -> Applications -> Google Play Services -> Clear Data
    Settings -> Accounts -> Google -> Remove
    Reboot
    Re-add Google account and check that all syncs w/o error

    I had to do the above a couple times
    I had to give Memo sync approval separately

    Ref: http://forums.androidcentral.com/sam...ml#post3266590

    If it's just Contacts that won't sync, try...

    Go to settings-apps-all.
    Then Contacts-force stop-ok-clear data.
    Then go to Contacts Storage-force stop-ok-clear data.
    Then go to Accounts-click on your gmail account
    Un-check Contacts and re-check it. This will restart sync.
    After this, you should be good to go.
    (Note: If you have any direct dial or messaging widgets, they may have to be re-done.)

    Not a drastic difference. But these results are suitable.


    I have decided to not purchase a new battery.

    I'll keep posting more results.
