    Received and installed the update this morning. I can't say I've notice any performance changes at all. Considering it's just a security patch, there shouldn't be any changes in performance either.

    Read the link and saw no mention of battery life improvements. Maybe I'm being directed to a different site or article?

    Even tried to search the word in the article

    I don't notice any difference in battery life and there are really too many factors to tell.

    According to all the change logs I read about the latest update there was no update to battery. There were updates for messenger and hangouts regarding passing media so maybe that helps you?

    Glad to hear you've noticed some improvements in battery life though
