    That looks about normal. Android System used about 6.7% of the battery capacity (28% of the total 24% used) in 5-1/2 hours. It normally runs a bit less (about 20% of use) but if you recently got an update it could be doing a lot of housekeeping for a few days.

    Google Services isn't just Google Play - Services includes a lot of other things these days - like syncing and updating (do you have your apps set to auto-update?) And it used only 3.6% of battery capacity.

    That really isn't normal ....I never have android system at 30% or close to it and google services don't even exist on a friends note 4 with Verizon as well

    This is my battery usage currently. I don't see Google services on mine. Apparently Simcity is eating my battery life though Lol

    My phone is struggling with the same drain problem. That darn Sim City just won't get off my screen, either.

    My Note 4 never showed "Google Services" and "Android System" was always around 17-19% of my battery usage until I got the AT&T update back in November. Ever since then, those two plus the "Screen" are always my top 3 no matter what my usage is. I cannot for the life of me figure out what setting was changed with the update. I've factory reset, cleared Cache, turned off notifications for Google apps, all sorts of attempts to fix it have failed.

    Do you have Google Now on? Or the Google search app to be "always listening"?

    Yeah and it's never been a problem ever since I had a nexus 5. I've been using the Google now launcher on the note 4, note 3 and nexus 5 and it was never that bad

    Is it causing actual drain or just taking up a large percentage in the battery stats?

    I guess so ? My phone lasted only 6 hours total yesterday and this percentage only been napping for about a month now

    What was your screen on time? Have you rebooted the phone?

    Here's mine. As you can see Google services is way up there on the list. My screen on time is pretty good though considering I am always on LTE, have GPS always on, Bluetooth always on, Google now on and Google search from anywhere on.
