I was noticing suddenly that my cell phone was draining its battery in something like 6 to 8 hours. At first my thoughts were that my battery was dying (I have an S5 so I can actually replace my battery) but then I though maybe something was stuck.
I rebooted my cell phone and not having that issue so it is resolved.

Anybody else ever have that issue?

I have a couple apps that go crazy for some reason and eat battery. If it happens again, there should be an option to look at battery usage by app before you shut down.

It's usually always an app that goes crazy.

I believe that is called a "wake lock". You can use WLD (Wakelock Detector) to show CPU Wakelocks, screen wakelocks, and wake-up timers. I don't remember if it works without root, though.

Mine was at 7% this AM. No good reason for that.

I started to get surprising drain apparently from idle Wi-Fi connection after switching to 5GHz. Turning off Wi-Fi and LTE overnight seems to fix it.

For me, it is just easier to plug it in though
