    Over the last several days I have noticed significantly higher battery consumption than ever before. I have not installed any new apps lately. Android System appears to be the culprit. I have wiped the cache without any change in results.

    I am running Lollipop as released by AT&T earlier this spring, and I had no issues until very recently. I have regularly gotten 4 hours of screen time over a 16-hour period.

    Any suggestions?

    Anyone else seeing this?

    I had the same issue on my Verizon Note 4. I had to do a factory reset. Oh what a difference? I loaded the same apps and the phone lasts 19 hours now.

    I do a cache partition wipe every time mine starts doing that. It's faster and easier than a total reset and works for me.

    I was going to suggest this same thing. It's faster and much easier than factory reset. And it works for me every time. In fact, I do it about once a month or so, just to keep things snappy. I'm not saying to disregard a factory reset. But I would only do it when it's absolutely necessary.

    In another thread someone said to turn off enhanced 4G LTE services under mobile network. It definitely stopped my high consumption android system. Try that out.

    Thank you for suggesting this. Finally something that helped it didnt stop the drain completely but it did help. I've been stressed out about this since April. Gone are the days of seeing 25% - 40% drain. The most i get is 20%. Thank you again for both reducing this battery drain and my stress.
