Install your apps one at a time and see which one causes issues.

Not really needed! Mine, without any power savings on, with 6 emails accounts and FB and whatsapp on, 4G LTE/WiFi on 100% of time, barely loses 2-3% overnight.

Battery life went to hell suddenly. A little investigation shows WiFi never turns off and seems to scan for networks every 3-5 seconds. I have all the options under advanced in wifi unchecked. This has only happened in last few days.

There should be one more option in settings that allows to check for WiFi networks even when WiFi is turned off.

That is shut off as well. Even turned on then back off just to make sure. problem is all the crap that google updates/changes even though you have updates etc turned off.

I am clueless about your issue now. I'm attaching the normal drain I see over night. See the status bar for incoming messages/mails, n the number of times phone was awake while I was sleeping, n see the battery line. I lost like 2-3% overnight from like around 1.30 am until 8 am.

Removed a few unwanted Google and Samsung apps and shutdown and restart, Now back to 3-4 days on stand by. Guess I will just have to do this periodically as updates turn stuff back on.

I solved this by turning auto update off, in Samsung store too.
