    I got this update last night and noticed that my RHD battery is draining a little faster on stand by. Still not bad, but did anyone notice this?

    The update turned my location history back on, which is a big battery drain.

    Go into Google Maps > location settings, and turn off location history.

    I had all location report/sharing/history settings in google map/now turned off before and this didn't change with update.

    But I noticed that update brought some new options under google search setting, "web history" and "personal searches". Both is enabled by default. I also noticed that my gmail account got sync error shortly after update. I just disabled the "personal searches" in google search and now gmail sync error went away, battery drain is back to normal. Not sure what caused it really.
