Unexplained battery drain due to Google Services?
I'm a very consistent user when it comes to day to day use of my DNA. 95% of the time when I have a shoot at the studio, I come home with 60% remaining on my battery. I greenify like mad and disable anything I don't use on stock.
So with the bloated stock Sense rom on my DNA, I expected to do better with anything else.
Unfortunately after using Paranoid Android and SlimBean both, I was having a hard time staying above 30% battery at the end of a shoot.
The problem is 100% Google Location Services in 4.3. Google changed something and Wifi continues to always scan even when you tell it not to.
If you have Wifi on and use location services (AGPS and not GPS), your battery will get murdered. As GPS is useless indoors, I have to use AGPS.
I enabled AGPS only when I specifically needed it and managed to make it through the end of the day with 73% of my battery remaining.
Hope this helps anyone still having an issue getting solid battery life as they should.
