Hello guys, I updated LG G2 to KitKat yesterday (V20-march06-2014). And bluetooth seems to be going crazy! It's next only to 'Screen' in battery usage. Comparing to bluetooth, WiFi consumption is almost neglible (0-1% ) vs 9-15% of bluetooth and 23-30% of screen..

Is there any fix or patch for this? Any temporary fix? Battery life was so awesome before 8+ hours screen on time! Now it's down to 4-4.5hours. Standby time is also affected. Disappointed!
Unable to find a fix on via Google search.

Bluetooth is reporting incorrectly, and does not actually use more power. If you're down to 50% power loss, you should be looking into wake lock detectors.

Could you please recommend me a wakelock detector app that works without root?

Well I was using my phone continuously like before but this time it's using more power than before (at least 20-40% more power). I'm doing the same tasks (xda app, little web browsing,YouTube)
So I do you think it might be wakelock issue when my tasks are in awake mode?


Thanks!
