More often than not, a factory reset will take care of battery issues after a major OS upgrade. I'm not sure if it's left-over system files or something about the "upgrading" of existing apps during the process, but I've had to do it with both my Galaxy S3 and Nexus 7 2012. Not every upgrade, mind you, but with one or two.

My wife's battery life has become so bad since the update, that I'm on this site trying to figure out how to downgrade her phone right now. (My N5/CM11 sometimes lasts longer than her G2 now)

Bout the same for me. Only thing I notice is that before my wifi was always running in background according to bbs, no matter what I did to change settings. Not anymore after update.

First cycle on the update I lost 35% or so in a couple hours with little use. I checked battery use and Instagram was the primary hog. Uninstalled and reinstalled the app and getting awesome battery life comparable or better than before the update. Not sure why instagram went crazy but works fine now

The update fixed a serious wakelock issue caused by wifi calling for me. A lot of wakelocks seem to have disappeared with the update for me.

Nothing leaps and bounds, but notice a bit of an improvement for sure.
