I just got my S5 on Monday, but there is a bug w/ Google services or something. I can post photos here, but the services is using too much of battery on stand by if anything. Google + used 25% of my battery from like 10 am to like 4 pm, so I disabled it since I don't use it at all. I have no location history set up and I have Google Now running, never use it, but sometimes nice to have.

What's your location mode? If it's high accuracy or battery saving, that's why. It keeps the google location service running and constantly polling for your location even with location history off. Google Now is also a big battery drain.

This is my third S5, but newest one on Monday, but it's location history off. I went to Best Buy to get a reflash on my S5 and now it's fine, but now, Lookout is eating up 20% of the battery. Can't have it near perfection w/ technology, meh.
