[Q] Battery drain issue
I can't believe that I'm posting a battery drain issue, but I'm new to Samsung and for the first time in years, I'm not rooted.
I've had my Note 3 for about 2-months. As a norm, I have no issue with the battery life that I get with this phone, being able to use it regularly throughout my long day, rarely ever needing to change it except overnight. However, on three occasions, a system app has appearantly hung up and drained the battery at an alarming rate, and at work around 1:00 or 2:00 PM, I'm getting a 15% battery warning instead of the usual 75% - 85% remaining.
Today it was the Gallery app. It was only used once late this morning when I made a screenshot, but discarded it. The previous time it was Maps, which I had not manually used, and the first time is was Google Search. All three different, the timing seemingly completely at random. I can determine no pattern to it..
Curious if anyone has observed similar behavior, and/or has any useful information on the topic that they might share.
Thank you for your time.
