    The Verizon page said to expect battery drain for a couple of days. I have gone through two batteries today. I am not sweating it though. I wiped the cache partition and if it is still draining after a few days I will just do a factory reset.

    The battery drained quick during the update (obviously) but after the battery was great. Took it off the charger with 60% at 7pm and its 2am and the battery is at 35%. Moderate usage

    Yes mine is draining a little faster than before on kitkat, even just in standby. I'll give it a couple days and see but I got a feeling a factory reset will be in my near future.

    I installed the update last night; on standby the battery is fine, but as soon as I turned the screen on and did anything the battery just dropped way off. Less than an hour of screen-on time and the battery dropped ~25%. So I just pulled the trigger on a reset. Everything is backed up, so no big deal. We'll see how it works going forward.

    I'm still setting the phone up, logging in to all my accounts, etc, so I'm murdering the battery right now. Still too soon to say.

    So far, it's a little worse than kitkat. But not terrible.

    Mine has improved. I wiped cache immediately after the upgrade but that's it.

    I can see a small difference in mine, so it will prob smooth out n a couple days.

    I did go ahead and do a factory reset after the updates, just to get it done on my day off

    Factory reset is a pain but it does help especially after an update like lollipop. Just to see how my phone would be I did not do the factory reset and the battery was hot plus the drain was terrible, battery life went down by 20% w/in an hour. After the reset my phone seems way better and battery life has improved overall.

    Cache partition. Turn off phone > power back on holding the power, volume up, and home key > wipe cache > reboot

    No change either way. Phone has been acting normal since the update. The standby may be better but it's too early to tell. I don't do factory resets on my devices and luckily they all have been fine.

    I agree on the "Standby" - I had it fully charged when I went to bed and it was at 98% when I got up. Never before - usually 88% - 90% after an overnight standby! The rest, too soon to tell - using it too much checking everything out!

    My battery life has been horrible since the upgrade. I'm going to try wiping the cache before going the reset route.

    Everyhing works perfectly, I think battery is even a little better, considering I've been hammering away on it all day.

    Just go ahead and reset it. May as well get it done. I did that on all my iPhones too whenever an update came. Too bad every update made them worse.

    I really hate how we now have the whole battery graph..and now it shows how long the battery will last instead of how much time it's been going for!! and how long it will last is inaccurate and depends on how u use ur phone!

    Anyway to revert back to the old format under the battery section?

    I looked around quite a bit - I think unfortunately, "what we see is what we get"!
