    Anyone want to take a stab at whats going on with mine?

    I can almost never get over 4 hours SOT and I have to charge around twice a day.

    App usage seems to be the culprit but I cannot figure out what it is

    Verizon, Location set to high accuracy ( but according to GSAM it wasn't really used much at all).

    Build number: MMB29M.G935VVRU2APB5
    Configuration Version: F15.SAM.SMG935V.0
    Kernel Version: 3.18.20

    In a 18 hr period, your Held Awake time is unusually high. You should install wakelock detector lite & check out what's keeping your phone awake.

    Just wanted you guys to know, I might have fixed my battery issue. I changed signal from 4G to 3G and now everything seems to be fine!

    That might be a fix but it's a serious trade off that shouldn't be necessary for a top of the range phone. Unless you never have 4g, I wouldn't take that trade off!

    I honestly can't see what's wrong with the battery usage. You're getting more than a day. Lol. I get like 16-18hrs on heavy usage, and I'm happy. Lol. Of course I did come from 10-12hrs usage on my old Note.

    Did S5 use 4G? I've never had problems with it?

    Mine is completely awful since the last update too. Used to be absolutely brilliant, there were days I could have hit 9 hours screen time and 6 easily no matter what the situation. Now it struggles to get 4 hours and I've a huge Android System drain that had previously never got out of single digits.

    I have the same massive Android System drain. Is there a work around for it anywhere? I can't seem to find one that works

    I haven't seen any fixes yet, just that loads of people are having the same issue. My latest stats (I just posted in the main battery thread) show how bad it's got with the phone kept awake for over 9 hours.
