I have owned this phone for about 3 months and I have had awesome battery life until recently....about a month after I updated to lollipop. I bought a new battery hoping it was the battery causing the drain. I have tried everything from clearing the cache to wiping the device and still no change. Is there any assistance I can further get? Screenshots of my battery usage are attached

It's an issue with Android Lollipop causing your battery drain. When my S4 was on Lollipop, I'd average 11.5 hours battery life with 3.5 hours of SOT. I downgraded to Kitkat and am now getting 14 hours battery life with 4.5-5.5 hours SOT. If you don't like the idea of downgrading your OS, you could try:
1. Use auto-brightness,
2. Disable Wifi/Mobile data when not in use or on standby,
3. Keep power saving on,
4. Disable Wifi scanning,
5. Disable Sync and unnecessary apps and services.

Thanks
However i wanted to ask if it is possible to load an alternative Rom like that situation of the S4 LTE-A version that got a custom Rom for the Note 4. I read comments from users saying their Ram management got way better
