    You can now use a new feature callen google now on tap by long pressing the home button! It reads the screen to find information about what is displayed on your screen.

    Doze! Your S5 will now consume a lot less more power when not in use and is stationary (stays in 1 place, not moved)

    Permission, new apps that supports this feature will now ask permission right before using this instead asking all the permission before you download it. (You can deny the permissions asked by the apps which means you can gain more control and privacy)

    And of course, performance improvements. Especially the recent apps lag which takes 2-4 second from tapping the recent apps button to actually displaying the recent apps. This lag is found on 5.0 (which i suffered too)

    I've downloaded this update, however I fail to see the improvement from "doze". Something I need to do to enable it?

    Nope, it activates automatically. Can you post a screenshot on your battery usage screen found in settings? And if can, touch the graph and screenshot it too.

    Doze is enabled when your phone is not moving at all. So a slight movement on your phone can cancel doze.

    Went from 100% to 85% overnight. I'll try and screenshot it tomorrow.

    Stinks that it must be still, phone is always in my pocket during the day.

    Android N's new feature will let doze be enabled when the screen is off and the phone doesn't need to stay in one place to activate doze. Doze will automatically activate whenever the screen is off. But sadly i dont think that S5 is going to get official android N update from samsung

    Hmm.. it looks like you have a poor signal/network coverage. Your phone might be constantly searching for signal. Try to enable airplane mode while you are sleeping.

    Also, i see lots of wakelocks (this can also be your phone searching for signal). Can you post the screenshot about the app battery usage? Right before you click the graph? A bad app might be keeping your device from dozing properly.

    The app battery usage should look like this. From my S5 running 5.0 without doze.

    Interesting, I'm using WiFi calling, you would think that would tell it not to look for signal... I had an airave that stopped working, maybe I should try revive it.

    I will try and get another shot tomorrow. Can you explain why the percentages don't add up to the missing battery?

    Looks like there are no bad apps. Is your sync turned on? Maybe sync keeps waking your phone during doze.

    Also i recommend you to clear cache partition.

    I just took the marshmallow update, should've cleared the cache... I may try a factory restore.

    Factory Reset after Software Upgrade is quite helpful. I recommend this step-by-step instructions to be absolutely certain you don't lose any data:

    Sprint Galaxy S5 - updated to Marshmallow yesterday, battery life today TERRIBLE! I've never had a battery issue before with this phone (1 year) - could easily make it through 10-12 hours of mixed use. Today I was busy and barely used the phone at all, battery drained from 90% to 35% in 4 hours!!!

    That cell signal persistently looks pretty bad. My understanding is that Samsung phones don't let you see what the cell signal strength has been over the span of a charge, so try installing GSam Battery Monitor, which can give you that information. If the cell signal is persistently poor, that could easily explain battery drain. If I'm stuck in a particular are of my workplace with lousy signal for an extended period of time, you can definitely see the steeper slope of battery drain.
