Battery Life AWFUL since update!!!!

Miembro

My battery goes from 100% at 7:00am to 0% by 11:30am since the Lollipop update. Does anyone have any suggestions? It is really frustrating!!!!! I loved this phone until I got this update. My son and daughter have the same phone, and their battery life is doing the same thing. We have done everything that is says to reserve your battery life. HELP PLZ!!!!

I would consider doing a Factory Reset if I were you. The OS should not be sucking up the life of the phone; on my S5 the OS is usually down at the bottom of the battery usage. Of course I did a Factory Reset to fix a few other small issues and now the OS is up toward the top so I need to do another one. In your case I don't think the situation can get any worse.

Just remember to back up all your important files, documents, pictures, videos etc. etc. before doing a factory reset.

Which phone is it?

Can you look under settings>battery and relay what the top 5 apps are and what % they are using.

Yes it is extremely frustrating!!! Specially when I have to charge my phone 3 times in 1 day. I have bought new batteries. I close my apps immediately after using then.

I would disabled backup and restore of apps and app data as well when doing a FDR.  This will prevent Kit Kat apps not optimized for Lollipop to install fresh without conflicts.

I would first try it without doing that. I wasn't experiencing battery drain issue before my factory reset where I disabled app data backup and restore, but afterwards is when my OS was the number 1 battery usage. However it did fix a couple of my other issues.

If it doesn't work, then I'd go in and disable it. Or if you experience any other glitches afterwards not related to the battery.

I should point out that obviously I can't pin point disabling those two things as the cause of my OS draining my battery as I haven't gone back in and done a factory reset while NOT disabling. To me it is just worth a try; especially if you have apps that don't back up to anywhere and don't want to loose that information like I did.

Restart the phone in Recovery mode and run in Recovery for 24 hours. See if the battery issue is gone.  If it is gone then it is an app issue and you would need to track down the app causing it.

If it is still present, then I would start with a Cache Wipe run it for a day or two then if it is still doing it then do the Factory Data Reset as a last resort.
