Since the late March update both my Galaxy S5 and my wife's Galaxy S5's battery consumption has increased significantly. I used to be able to get 2 full days easily on a single charge with wireless, location services, and Bluetooth all left on all the time, which is the way I like to roll. Bluetooth battery usage seems to have gotten particularly more greedy.
Now with Bluetooth and Location turned off all of the time, I am often down in the 30-40% range after 18 or 20 hours. We've been using these over a year and have never seen anything like this.

At first we assumed it was time to change batteries.
I have tried new batteries. I have tried a factory reset (always a real pain). And as I mentioned, I have turned Bluetooth off other than the 40 minutes a day I use it..
This is very frustrating. One of the main reasons I liked the phone was it's long battery life to aid in worry-free travel (not constantly having to think about my next charge).
Has anyone else experienced this?
Are Samsung/T-Mobile aware? Are they planning on doing anything about it? What tweaks have people made?
