My battery has been great until recently. I have been used to 4-5 hrs screen on time. The last 2 days Android OS has been the biggest battery hog. Better Battery Stats (BBS) shows the proximity sensor is the #1 hog under partial wakelock. What else should I look at in BBS? I keep my brightness on about 25%. I use greenify. I have google now off. GPS is on high accuracy. I am stock rooted with xposed framework and gravitybox. Thanks in advance for the help!

Have you tried wiping cache/dalvik? Sometimes that helps with spontaneous battery issues.

actually reboot usually helps. for some unknown reason from time to time it starts draining like crazy with power manager wakelocks or gnow or play services wakelocks.

haven't found a reason so far and stopped researching because it's frustrating.

Wiping Cache and Dalvik and doing reboots don't seem to help anymore. Does anyone else have a solution?
