    This really sucks i was expecting this constant drain to be less of an issue with 5.0 and it obviously isnt. I've had this drain on every Samsung device I've owned since the S3. Seems like google isnt really ironing out drainage issues with every OS version. I do recall Sandar Pachi speaking about project volta with Android 5.0 what happened to that google!? More goggle IO fluff (rant) over. Anyone else experiencing this im all ears here. 24 hrs with lollipop and this is what im getting? (Battery life issues)-uploadfromtaptalk1427309295815.jpg

    It takes a few days to settle after installing lollipop. Let's hope for your sake at least.

    I am not experiencing "drain issues" with my Note 4, and my S4 was OK until the battery started degrading.

    you know something, the phone was hot while it was downloading the update, and for a few days after it kept getting hot once I used it for more than 5 minutes, and the ram would never go below 2.2 and the battery was draining fast. I was hoping to hang on and see if in a few days things would stabilize, but no such luck. So I finally bit the bullet and did a factory reset. NOW i have the best phone i ever owned, the phone is cool at all times, and the Ram gets as low as 1.8 and now my battery is lasting more than it did with KitKat.

    This is my experience, just to give you an idea.

    I understand. The constant among all of your devices is you. Have you taken time to review your setup?

    We get a ton of " terrible battery life" threads in here, and many of them turn out to be unrelated to the device.

    Not saying that is your situation, but it is certainly something that needs to be asked given the history of these type of threads.

    I had this issue after my Moto X updated to Lollipop. Google / system services essentially doubled the usage and killed the battery. After several weeks of trying a number of fixes, I did a factory reset and that fixed the issue. It's a pain but if you aren't able to fix it other ways, try that. Kit Kat to Lollipop is a huge update / change, so it's not unusual you might need a re-set.

    I totally get how some can have the tendency to cry wolf when it comes to battery life. As far as my setup goes i didnt make any major changes after the update. I lost widget compatibility with a mobile data toggle I was using on 4.4 that was it. Speaking of which i wish i still had that function lol but nothing app wise plays well with 5.0.1 yet.

    other than the UI no difference. Everything I use works the same and battery life is the same

    And then there's other terrible battery life threads where there is a real problem and everyone suggests turning off your phone to make the battery last longer. We had 4 or 5 threads about 3 months ago where everyone said download an app that will do nothing that the battery stats don't already do. I changed nothing in my set up and went from 6 hours of screen on time to about 3.5. No new apps, no settings changed, tried a factory reset, cleared cache multiple times, multiple reboots, and still google play services, and android system would be at the top of my chart.

    I do agree that many of the threads about poor battery end up being a waste. But we can't just chalk everyone's complaint up to what we've seen in the past.

    i just finished my update and now my fast charging isn't working, not trying to thread jack but figured it was relevant, also seeing terrible battery life as well. would a re-set fix this maybe?

    Do you have your advanced charging checked in the battery settings?

    Perhaps I'm lucky (and of course I wiped the cache partition) but in the first 24 hours for me, battery life seems about the same, knock on wood.

    OMG, there's no wood to knock on around here, only IKEA particleboard and wood laminate floors! HAAALLP!!!

    I had the same problem while downloading the update and afterwards. I looked up online for the S5 with Lollipop, there was a recommendation to pull the sd Card out and the battery for a few minutes. I did this and afterwards put them both back in, rebooted and phone doesn't get hot anymore. It was extremely hot, including the battery. So you probably have an SD Card I'm guessing, I do, even if you don't, try pulling the battery for a few minutes and see what happens. Hope that helps.

    I immediately did a factory reset after I got the Lollipop update and I'm not having any battery issues or any issues at all.
