    I received and installed the 5.1.1. update to my Canadian Note 4 last week. Immediately I noticed the battery was draining faster so I bit the bullet and did a factory reset. That has not fixed the battery problem.

    My Bluetooth seems to be the main culprit as it drains the battery constantly even when not connected to a Bluetooth device. I use it to connect to my vehicle so I do not want to have to turn it off and on manually.

    This was never a problem on my S3 running 4.0 to 4.2 or my Note 4 from 4.4 to 5.0.1. Bluetooth never drained the battery on those OS's and I do not want to be told to manually turn it off when I don't need it. I'm hoping someone has or had a similar issue and knows how to fix it.

    Anyhoo, after some arduous googling, I found that the Gasbuddy app has been giving some people the same bluetooth wakelock issues I've been having. I uninstalled Gasbuddy a couple of hours ago and the problem is gone.

    Here's the page in case anyone is interested:

    I have AT&T Note 4 and it was recently updated to Android 5.1.1, and the battery drain was significantly higher compared to when it was on 5.0.1 with all the same apps.

    Removing Gasbuddy seems to have done the trick from what i can see in the past few hours, i had already tried the "Wipe Cache Partition" before removing the GasBuddy app, Everyone having problems with battery life on a Note 4 with 5.1.1 should remove GasBuddy till the time they fix the issue with their need to keep Bluetooth connection on at all times..
