So yesterday my friend I and both updated to the latest instagram version 3.0.4 and have been suffering abnormal battery drain.

Battery drops 15% an hour with NO USAGE.

Dang, if this is true, this explains my horrible battery drain today (worse than usual). Hopefully they will send a new update out soon.

This has been extensively discussed in numerous threads relating to new rom i.e. battery drain. Instagram engages your GPS and keeps pinging it incessantly..... ergo the battery drain.

The Fix is to disable the app and only turn on when you want to use, then use the task manager to close the app. That way it does not work in the background.....

Now you have an Answer..............
