    On my 1520 bought about 2 weeks ago, battery life seemed as many have reported, stellar and takes a conscious effort to run it to empty. After the latest update to 14176 I notice my battery usage is higher and under battery saver it seems apps that were previously using minimal amounts of power in the background are now showing huge increases. Has anyone else noticed this?

    Did you also install Cyan alongwith? I am not sure if its released for your phone/region but update 14176 works well with Cyan and I have noticed huge stability in battery life on my 525. Battery inside 525 used to drain too quickly and Cyan has definitely improved its life.

    No, cyan was already installed, got the update when I first got the phone.

    I added a screenshot and strangely enough some of those apps like ESPN FC haven't been used enough to warrant such background usage, at least I've not seen that much usage previously.

    My battery life is bad even in cyan with 8.1 (not DP).

    I haven't noticed much change since the update. I have a hiccup every once in a while with battery usage I just do a soft reset and it gloes back to normal or better

    Tried a soft reset a few times, going to try running it down a few times to see if it helps.
