Battery Drain
I was experiencing the same issue, I tried removing the SD card which did nothing but in the end I cleared the cache (non rooted) by going to settings/storage and after waiting for calculations to be done I clicked on Cached Data and hit Ok
After that I had no problems with battery drain, give it a try and report back

I am having the same issue. The battery just drains when I am using. I don't event want o use it anymore because it uses 1% per minute. I removed the SD card and cleared the cashed data. That worked. Now its 3 minutes per 1%. But Now the phone drains 1% per minute when the phone screen is off.

That is weird, with Wifi and Data connection off mine doesn't drain at all when the screen is off. However with Wifi or Data enabled it's draining about 1% per hour
Did you try with a different battery?

Hey guys,

and I do have a question regarding "stock batter" monitor and GSAM;
how come they show quite different results in the same period?

GSAM shows a much bigger percentage for Screen whereas showing minor usage for Whatsapp, for instance.

Is this how it works:

While you use Whatsapp, both the screen and the software uses battery. Stock monitor counts it all towards Whatsapp whereas GSAM only covers battery used for the "software"?
