It seems that with the new update I am getting less battery life then when kit Kat I have everything the same expect no root and I would usually get around 5 1/2 battery life on kit Kat with root but now I'm nearly getting 4? And I already factory reset it and it's still the same any help ?

Mine is about the same. I have it set to power saving mode. Just not affecting background data. Getting a full day with it without having to plug it in till about 11pm, my day off charger starting at about 5:30am. It might be your settings and if you're a power user. I use mine all through the day, from streaming audio to social networking and talking and texting or surfing the web. Even watching videos!

You people do know that just like when you flash a ROM you have to train the update or ROM to the battery. To do this you have to completely drain and charge the battery a few times. I get better battery time with Lolipop then I did with KK. But I also trained the battery and system.

This is one possibility.

You all have to also remember that if you use a KK rom that they were heavily tweaked by the rom maker most times for battery life/performance boosts.

Have you fully discharged your battery to the point that the phone shuts off and then recharged with the phone off at least twice? If not you should give it a try. This is supposed to be standard procedure any time a ROM is changed or updated. The ROM has to learn the charge and discharge characteristics of the battery and the only way to do this is to have it run a couple of full cycles.

Accidentally gave thumbs up. Anyway, not sure if that's true. I've installed many roms across multiple phones (like most of you have) and I've drained and charged batteries after installing roms and sometimes I haven't. Either way I haven't noticed better battery life. It's usually the same.

Stock rooted NK2 or full stock?

This only gives you very small gains if any, also this matters more only if you don't ever let your phone die completely/have a non-stock battery.

Thats usually whats going to happen, small gain/loss. Nothing amazing unless you have an extended battery the device needs to learn to use.
