    Does anyone got battery draining faster after update to android 5?I just updated couple of hours ago and battery went down from 100% to 67% without using it when before update would still be 95% minimum without using it just in my pocket
    What could be the cause?
    I also get less signal from my operator after update

    Many things could cause this:

    1. try doing in wipe partition cache
    2. try doing a factory wipe
    3. make sure your apps are all up-to-date and if you have installed any new ones remove them see if that improves the battery.
    4. buy a new battery.

    You will probably need to do a factory reset. It helped me. The wipe partition cache did nothing for me. But for others it seems to work. So might want to try that first.

    i had no problem with my upgrade to Lollipop in fact it's improved from KitKat you might want to look at your current apps that you have on your phone they could be the caused of your battery drain as well. Like suggested after you do a factory reset and you still find your battery drain your apps could be the issue.

    Master reset isn't the answer to everything and it didn't work for me hence why I'm getting it replaced

    I struggled with bad battery life after the update - tried the cache wipe, but it didn't help. Finally, I did a factory-reset (two days ago) and yesterday, battery life was back to normal.

    It's not a fun-thing to do - it took me pretty much a whole day to get it back to where I had it (I have a lot of apps with lots of configuration).

    After about 6 weeks on lollipop including 2 factory resets and flashing the South African release when it became available, I get the impression that LP is using the battery sparingly when in sleep mode as compared to kitkat. When the device is used, it consumes more battery capacity than what kitkat did under the same circumstances. Overall this gives me about 18 hrs more usage out of a full charge.

    Has anyone found a factory reset to fix settings crashing when I try to adjust the sound/notifications? A couple of people told me to try to factory reset but I never heard back on if that worked to fix the issue?

    Give it several days and things should stabilize. No need to reset just yet.

    Ok what about this scenario:

    I upgraded to L abt a month ago I would say now...battery was great initially after the update...but in the last week, I have seen it getting used up pretty fast. When I upgraded, i JUST did cache wipe..Didn't factory reset it cuz I don't want to loose my app data (difficult to back it up esp some apps).

    Has any one been in this situation? Battery worked fine initially, now it's going DOWN!

    Very meticulously scan through new apps and think about past settings you've altered. Chances are something like that is affecting your battery life.

    cool...i will look into it even though to the best of my knowledge, I haven't gotten any new apps since the update...Off course most of my apps have updated to the latest version, so there might be a bug in there some where. Not much changed in the settings department as well as u were mentioning..but i will look into it!

    Verizon Lollipop. Battery sucked bad after update. Wiped Cache ... still sucked bad. Did a factory (PITA) reset. Sucks but maybe a little less sucky. All apps up to date. I should have never done the upgrade. :-(

    I did everything said here but no improvement
    Battery drains really fast,from 100% til 60% in less than an hour when before the update could last even 2 days
    Wish I had never updated
    I was so eagerly awaiting this update and at the end it resulted worst

    Anytime you do a major update you should do a master reset.

    The update is NOT the cause of the battery drain. There are too few complaints compared to the number of updates for that to be the cause. The update is the same on all phone within your carrier. You have another issue going on in your phone.

    My last 3 Galaxy devices, including this one, did not require factory resets after Android updates. It isn't always necessary to factory reset for a major update.

    I did a factory reset and although it didn't seem to make a difference for the first 24-48 hours, my battery improved significantly after that. Not as good as my battery life with Kit Kat but I'd say it's fairly close.

    It's really difficult to tell what is causing battery drain. Especially not knowing how everyone is using their device, the type of signal, what apps you all have loaded etc. I didn't do a factory reset as my device runs fine with no change from kit kat. I don't think lollipop is the sole cause of everyone's problem. If it were the mass majority would be having problems and I don't see that being the case.

    Note for everyone who may be on the newer side of android... When you get an update and all of a sudden your battery life takes a dump and someone in the forums tells you a possible solution is to buy a new battery, ignore them.

    An OS update from a carrier will never literally destroy your battery. The only time that kind of advice may need to be followed is if the recently updated phone is a couple years old... and was having battery issues prior to the update.

    This is not news for most of us... but I know if my mom came here to get help and saw that as a suggestion she'd jump on it just to be on the safe side. So if you're new to android... don't do that.

    Batteries go bad, batteries need to be replaced, carrier pushed OS updates do not make batteries go bad or need to be replaced.

    I've been on Android since Cupcake. I never do an update without a reset, ever. I also reset before the update and I reset in recovery mode.

    It is really better to update on a clean phone, then reset and clear cache after the update.

    One time I did not follow those personal rules.

    Guess how many times I've had issues after numerous upgrades? Once. When I didn't reset.
