Hi thanks for the reply yeah my network is bad in this area never more than 2 bars of signal, I was running wakelock detector on 4.3 but obviously Google stopped the user from being able to read process data. I do have gsam battery monitor installed I will see if that turns anything up. I hope Motorola fixes the battery drain issue soon thanks for your help.

Notice how your battery drain is bad after GPS is used. See the link posted above by the other poster. My posts in that thread refer to GPS as being the culprit. It seems it may be the same in your case.

When you notice the bad battery drain try a reboot. It should fix it until GPS is next used. BTW I have noticed GPS doesn't always cause the drain to start, but it does quite often.

Are you on non-gpe device or gpe.

Hi Scott thanks for the info I didn't notice that I will fully charge tonight and then use the GPS for a little while and then stop using it to see if that causes the drain by the way my phones a standard g non gpe.

actually with that signal level I think this is the normal drain, you got quite some screen time as well.

Ah thanks I would have got more but the phone powered down at 10% seconds after i'd posted that, calibration issue I'm guessing.

Did a bit of a GPS test this morning Scott was used for 15 mins then maps was turned off along with data so I had no other battery drain.

My personal experience is that I only get the drain when I have used GPS but I do not always get it when I have used GPS. Basically to me it seems like some intermittent GPS issue that causes the drain. I had it yesterday and rebooted. But today I have tested gps and all fine again - no drain.

Also have noticed after the latest KitKat update (the tiny 9MB update) that at times GPS can't get a lock.
