The drain seems a bit more stable, with intervals of low discharge. But it is too early to make a definitive assessment.

Less anomolous wake-ups for me so after a cache wipe so better standby time

I've noted some interesting patterns in location based wake-ups. Mine is set to Battery Saving (e.g Wifi and Network based) unless using Navigation, and I have the advanced wifi option 'scanning always available' off. Wifi is only on at home. When I'm at work at my desk my phone gets a rock solid signal and if not in use use stays firmly asleep with negligible battery drain through the course of the day (2-3% over 8-9 hours).

If I'm in a meeting room on the other side of the building the signal is very dodgy and the phone is waking up every 10 minutes - I'm theorising these are location based wake-ups. I also get wake-ups when driving even if not using navigation - probably because of the rapid moving between different cells. Previously I had more wakeups keeping wifi on, or having the scanning always available option on. Again I theorise that in areas with a high concentration of wifi networks you get more wakeups.

Some people have reported better battery life using Device Only (GPS) for location. I wonder if they are often in poor signal areas, or with a high concentration of wifi networks? Device only drains more for me overall.

Hmmm this a good observation and explains a lot.

it also explained how location history is so accurate without GPS if you go to Google.com/dashboard
