    On at&t so no 5.1 yet. All of a sudden my battery plummets overnight. Went from 80% to 33% this morning. Nothing out of the ordinary in terms of app usage I can see. Battery has been on the ok side since launch can stretch to 24 hrs with 4 sot max. Also getting the camera issue when it launches and looks like surface of a lake periodically. I hate sending it in for a refurbished so any suggestions? Also, seems hotter when charging... Could this be a dud this far along? Bought on launch day

    Can I suggest downloading greenify and Doze. Both these apps have added hours of standby time to my phone

    Do you have GSam Battery Monitor installed? If not get it. Sounds like something is keeping your phone awake and preventing it from going into Deep Sleep. That has happened to me a few times (once it was GPS) . The stock battery stats didn't indicate anything but GSam showed my phone was being Held Awake. That is how I isolated the problem.

    When gsam indicates your phone is being kept awake how do you determine what the problem is?

    I did the process of elimination. It wasn't an app as no app showed high usage so I started with wifi, GPS, Bluetooth, etc. I turned them off and the phone began sleeping. I then randomly turned on one at a time to see what happened.

    Wifi keeps the phone awake?

    I've had my GPS, Bluetooth and wifi go rogue. Don't know why.

    Decided to reset and install gsam again. I had used it the first month or so when the great s6 battery craze began
