My Xperia ZR which is currently running Android 4.3 and Google Play Services 4.4.52 seems to be facing the same problem as the 4.4 users on Xperia Z - Huge battery drain (up to 91%)
This has been happening everyday for over a week now and shows no sign of stopping.

I have heard of this problem occurring on Xperia Z devices that recently received the Kitkat update but not a word anywhere of the existence of this problem on an Xperia device running Android 4.3.

I would like to know if anyone out there is facing a similar issue while still running 4.3 on their device. And if anyone is, then have you found any solution to the problem?

Would appreciate a reply ASAP as my phone has been rendered practically useless right now with my battery going from 100% to 10% in about 6/8 hours without 3G/WiFi/GPS or anything else apart from the basic network being on.

Play Services 5.0 are released! Try to find them in a tech blog and install them.

Yup, the issue got resolved after Google released Google Play Services 5.0! Phone's functioning normally now and battery life is sweet! Thanks a lot, everyone!

Google Service 5 helps really?

I installed it manually and I recognize that battery drain is the same as before?

Helps version 5 really?
