    No games either. Battery monitor says Cell Standby used 9%, Android OS used 9% and Screen used 8%. Before lollipop if I was at work with this type of usage I'd be at around 65% right now. Damn, I shouldn't have upgraded it.

    I have about 3 hours of on screen with 51% left. So far it's a little better than before update.

    Lollipop is considered a major OS update and it's common practice to do a factory reset after installing the update. This ensures that the phone will run smoothly on a clean slate.

    There are of course other factors as well; rogue apps, signal quality, background sync, etc. Give those a look-over before you decide to try and factory reset. To me it sounds like a rogue app because of the significant difference.

    Gsam is a very helpful battery monitoring app that breaks down what percent that apps are using. You can install that and it should get you started in the right direction to remedy your now bad battery life.

    I had an LG G3, did TWO resets when lollipop installed and battery live dropped considerably. My Droid was received yesterday, and before doing anything, other than signing in, it loaded lollipop. I have no experience with the turbo before lollipop, but the phone has dropped to 49% today in about 12 hours. And for the majority of that time it was sitting on a table next to me on Wifi.
    Half dozen emails, one text, and strong signals for wifi and voice.
    As much as my LG had battery life; it was better than the turbo!
    If this is normal for a turbo, I might have to return it.
    Want something I don't have to plug in during the day when not even used.
    And lollipop is known on some devices to have a battery usage problem.

    But I'll give GSAM a try....

    Just an fyi: It's not always battery life that is affected and problems don't always show up right away after taking the update. They can take days or even a couple of weeks to rear their ugly head.
    As dezy mentioned, it's been standard practice for years to do an FDR simply to start with a clean slate after such a major update.

    Of course if you're happy with it as is, that's all that matters. Just throwing it out there.

    I have never on any phone did an fdr after an update and never had a problem. I never did it because I hate resetting my phone up

    Ive noticed that my Battery life has degraded over time but i guess it can be the Quick Charger and it running so hot. Used to get a Solid 40hrs up to 49Hrs on normal use, now i can get about 28hrs after about 8 months

    This AM...
    Unplugged from charger at 5:30. Set on table, till 6:30 and it had dropped to 95% No calls, no emails, no texts. Per GSAM, the largest draws were due to WiFi and signal. Not sure why those two since it is about ten feet from the router and voice signal is very strong in this area.
    Spent twenty minutes with Verizon and made some changes. Was asked to hold power button in till boots up, then put on charger, and leave on charger for 30 minutes after fully charged. Did that, and now after 1-hour, it has dropped to 99% and that includes having two calls (unanswered) and one email notification.
    Maybe it was settings. Time will tell....

    It will take a few days before the Battery issues will calm down. It's also A good idea to turn phone off each day a few min.

    Most of you are getting better battery life then I've ever gotten, LP or KK. 12 hours at 49%? I would kill for that. :D
