Default S view cover battery drain?????

Anyone else seeing battery drain with their s view cover???

I just got mine today and almost immediately felt like I started seeing excessive battery drain.

Not sure if I'm going crazy or what.

Put on oem back and I've gone 34 to 32 in about the same time with screen on. The

Ok, day 2 with s view cover and battery drain isn't seeming to be an issue. Not sure what to think of it.

I ran battery stats pro and better battery stats and they both found an app "mobile tracker" to be draining battery.

I got paranoid and did factory reset. Seems to be okay now and battery drain was not related to s view cover.

Let me know what you see. I'm still not sure if it is or isn't draining battery.
