Battery Low [Q] Battery Drain Samsung s5 4gLTE

My battery life was amazing when i bought the phone lasted like 2 days

Recently I got an update of less than 150mb after that my battery life is now horrible in normal mode it lasts 9 hours the screenshot i attached show my phones battery usage on POWER SAVING mode (50% used on power saving mode in 9hrs at NIGHT when i don't use the phone)
and rite now i'm charging the phone again dont know whats wrong with it.

(It doesn't overheat or anything just loses battery.)

Will appreciate if someone can help troubleshoot this issue.

First of allI would say that your active GPS is a high battery drain so I would turn it of and see again if the battery drain is still that high.

Thnx turned off GPS and restarted phone now it's fine 85% from 100% in five hours with moderate use.

So is my GPS app is faulty?

I use maps a lot so how do I keep my GPS on but without this issue, my GPS was on from purchasing time but nothing like this happened.


Hoping for a permanent fix.

Once again appreciate the prompt help.

it's hard to answer your question without any other details. do you use any widgets? any apps that might cause waking of the device? use apps that could show the wakelocks during deep sleep

I use the s health, the clock and calender and the track id however I went back to the store even after reset the issue was there They said I can change the fone but didn't have the black color ( white to me looks tacky) so I got the m8 instead. Thnx for the help.

change location service mode to power saving when not using maps, change to gps only when you need. Turn off bluetooth and wifi tethering. Switch to HSPA when you're using map because you don't need lte speed.
