    I did a reset after. Mine was running hot and drained quickly. On my reset I only lost my keyboard and wallpaper.

    I noticed today my battery is draining fast. Before lollipop I could go all day from 6 am until 11 or 12 at night without worrying... today I have charged twice and it is on 21% left now. I just wiped the Cache and will see if that works tomorrow after I charge tonight. If not, I guess I will do the dreaded factory reset.

    I did a factory reset right after the upgrade to Lollipop on Friday. I charged overnight and unplugged about 7:45 am Saturday morning. Went to bed Sunday night with 35% battery left so I plugged in at that time. A whole weekend without charging was great. I'd say the update has made my battery a lot better.

    Well so far my battery is slightly worse with the update. Even after the factory reset but really hard to tell without letting it settle in for a cpl days. No way to really gauge it right after updating and resetting

    My battery is definitely better than it was before. I can tell just by everyday use so far.

    This is just an opinion based on my time since update. I think what we're all not realizing is, because it's an all new operating system, we are ALL playing with the phones more than we normally do. It's the desire to try out the new features, check all of our apps to see if they still work, post more on the forums (like we are right now). If we all let the Lollipop NEWNESS wear off, I bet we'll ALL have a better awareness of ACTUAL battery life. Just sayin'!

    Was at 100% charge at 6am EST, I am down to 75% battery at 1:02PM est. Not bad for a device that I have had since it came out. I am sure if I put a brand new battery in it would be better.

    Not the case with me. It's been how many days and my battery is still noticeably worse than it was with kitkat. Using the phone the same I always did.

    I have not seen any difference in battery drain since I've went to Lollipop. I use my phone on my breaks and lunches and work an 8 hour day, with a 40 minute drive to work. My phone was at 85% when I left work. I always toggle mobile data off when heading back to work.

    I did the factory reset after the lollipop install. My battery life is normal. I just want to say that to everyone, sometimes we waste more time trying to figure out how not to spend any time on something...

    What I mean by that is... If anything is bothering you, even if you think that something is bothering you... just do the factory reset... :-)

    Post update the phone was on fire for about 4 hours. After that it settled down. A process called "Media" was the culprit, sucking about 5x the screen. Seems fine now.

    I have about 10GB of photos on the SD card and I suspect that process was indexing, creating thumbnails or something where it had to look at every one of them.

    Cell standby seems to be a battery hog...?I never seemed to see it in battery usage before towards the top.. I have 78% left right now and normal I get home in 6-7 hours from now with 70.. And no different use. I'm happy to ride this out a week. The phone DOES seem snappier and the os more crisp and stable. But if I was more a power user I wouldn't be so calm

    Now that the reset has been done and things are settling down, I did a stand by test this morning. The phone is using no more and maybe less than 1 percent per hour on standby. I find this fair and a sign the phone is healthy. Today I will use it as normal. I am sure I will get a full day out of the battery again.

    Yesterday I got 5 and a half hours screen on time. Before the update I could barely get 4 hours. Most of this screen on time was streaming twitch which really ran the battery down before.

    So I woke up this morning to the alert that I had an update. It was the update before the update. I took the phone off of the charger at 0600 with 100% batter. I did both and they were completed by 0700 and the battery had drained to 50%. I left the phone in my truck while I was in a building. I came back out at 1000 and the battery was at 9%. So, 50% down to 9% in three hours with nothing happening. I reset the cache at 0700. I am about to do a factory reset and see what I get.

    Also, every 30 seconds or so, I get an error that pops up and then goes away on it's own: "Unfortunately, com.sec.imsservice has stopped"

    I did a reset and wipe cache. After w few days it seems to be working itself out somewhat. However, it is till not as good as it was on kitkat. Other than the battery life issue I am really liking the update.
