    How long have you had your phone? I went to setting, personal, privacy and safety and then app permissions and limited the apps that wanted to use my location.

    I think google services was a high battery user for a while but I do not think it is any longer after having had my device and several charging cycles. Marshmallow made it very nice to control app permissions.

    I also keep my gps set to the middle setting unless need it.

    Did a Google search and found quite a few comments about Google Services causing drain. Followed the recommendations and....Google Services is no longer running my battery dry! There is happiness in the valley☺

    Honestly, I don't remember. Google and followed most of the suggestions, disabling stuff as suggested.

    Settings>data usage>google services>restrict background data.

    I also restricted google play services. This instantly fixed it for me.
