    My battery has been draining much more quickly than usual and "Google Services" seem to be culprit. Any advice?

    Turn off your GPS when not in use, or restrict Google from using location services. Go to accounts, Google, the location then Google location reporting and restrict that. It worked a bit for me

    Where is this Accounts tab? Are you running 4.4? I'm still on 4.2.2

    Here's a clue to battery use fixed in KK 4.4.3
    "One of the long awaited fixes of this release is for excessive battery drain that could occur when an application used a device’s camera as a result of a process called ‘mm-qcamera-daemon’ which controls the camera on Qualcomm-powered devices. After an app using the camera was closed the process would continue to run in the background and cause abnormally high CPU usage which resulted in increased battery drain and higher device temperatures than normal."
