Could also be because the S5 just uses more power than the G Pro when on standby. I highly doubt it used less than 1% power in 8 hours though...

Just found out something, not sure if it helps, but I did notice a significant increase when you turn off location services for Google apps... namely the ability for Google maps to access your surrounding area and probe it for updated information. I saw an immediate increase after 19 hours I was at 62% having used the phone for regular use... so I think this might be the main culprit, although I'm not sure what LG is doing. I suspect that there is some sort of background killer in there working behind the scenes though.
