Default 4.4.2 battery crash

Interesting....after just 8 hours my battery has only 15% remainining....

Its been fine for 4 days and can't see any reason for it to plummet so quickly.

I've heard about the camera issue....but it doesnt show as usage. Anyone know whether this is the battery issue...ie not showing usage but killing the battery?

If there's no usage shown and the battery is going quickly, it's probably a bad battery - but it would have to be put on a bench and run with meters attached for a few hours to determine that.

Check your data and wifi signals in your battery settings (press the graph at the top, then look at the bottom of the next screen). A phone constantly hunting for a signal uses a lot of battery.

Yep, there is a major bug with KitKat that is killing battery life on Note 3, Nexus, HTC and other phones thats going around.

Nowt wrong with the battery. Something triggered a drain...

interesting app - GSam battery monitor....I'll monitor this.

My standard battery monitor is saying task manager is 23% and is consistently higher than others - 4.3 I dont even remember seeing this on the list!

this is utterly ridiculous. After installinging 4.4.2 I would have been at 75% at this time of day at least. just under a week on and its going downhill rapidly...

I am now at 57% and have everything turned down today. Nothing is showing as a drain except of the screen shot above Kernel (Android OS).

I hope this is fixed swiftly or I'll be going back to the previous version!

I only had one day like this and the main culprit seemed to be Android OS, it used around 5 times more battery than usual, but it's only happened once.
