    After installing a samsung update my phone's battery has started draining around twice as fast as it used to.

    I have tried a factory reset, deleted cache, disabled all the google apps and samsung apps that I don't use, but nothing has made a difference. I have taken out the SD card because that now makes the battery drain even more dramatically.

    I have the minimum apps installed now which I need for day to day use (whatsapp, facebook, google apps I use for work - gmail, calander, docs, my bank's app, chrome, the guardian etc.). Some screen shots are below from GSam app. I have also install 'service killer' and set it to kill google apps and bluetooth (which I don't have on but seems to need stopping every now and then).

    Any other ideas of how to get back to my previous, normal battery life would be appreciated!
