There are always sissies that want to complain. Nothing wrong with lollipop. And don't compare it with kitkat that is using a custom kernel probably
People get an update they've been anxiously waiting for and as a result play with their phone more. Then they complain the battery life is "ruined".
If you're rooted you need to do a couple of things.
Give the new ROM a day to "settle down". This is also for you so that you fall back into normal usage habits.
Then charge your phone to full. Wipe battery stats. Discharge all the way to empty then charge to full again.
You'll get a lot more battery life if you do that each time a new ROM is flashed.
Lastly, calm down. Put down the sky-is-falling megaphone.

I'd also like to add. I can't help but laugh when I see the screen shots as "proof" when the app usage list shows Facebook, or a game, or some other third party app as the culprit. Oh But it's samsungs lollipop updates fault Yeah?
If you have not done this please do it, Go to settings-wifi-Advanced-Always allow scanning, uncheck if its checked & report back, this is for you & OP both.
Whatever you say bro. I told you how to fix it. Sure it's old advice but no one seems to do it. And it's a sound practice that has solved nearly every battery life issue I've had with any phone.
And i wasn't speaking to you specifically, just commenting on a general pattern I see with battery complaints. But I see now your screenshot shows Facebook as the top app. So maybe you thought I was talking to you alone. I replied before I even got to the last page.
But funny, you only used it for five minutes and it's the top app. Hmm...so sort of makes my point stronger about a 3rd party app sucking down battery life eh? More reason to root and dump the bloatware.
And sure, your usage behavior remained firmly rooted in stone with a brand new update. whatever you say.
And my love for Samsung? Please I've got iPhones, htc, motorola.... It's the same overblown complaining in every manufacturer's forum.
Take a chill pill.
I think the lollipop update has ruined my marriage. My marriage just hasn't been the same since I updated my phone. I think I don't have an option but to go back to kitkat. I know one thing is for sure, if my wife gives me divorce papers you can bet your behind I'm getting a lawyer and going after Samsung.
Well who pissed in your cheerios? I think your post was as useful as mine. At least mine made people smile. Yours is just rude. Follow your own advice and don't say anything at all next time.
