S6 edge battery drain since last update

My phone used to drain around 3-4% overnight. And then your 1 nov update came in. Now it's draining 35-40% in the same period of time. That's a 1000% increase without any new app installed, no setting have been changed. So, is there a way to uninstall this blody update ? Any fix to it ? 

 

Please, Samsung, don't destroy our devices.

Hey, everyone, have you attempted to put your devices into power saving mode while you are asleep in order to help with battery consumption?

Nope. I didnt do before and I won't do it now either. I understand an increase in power consumption, I do understand battery degradation but this have NOTHING to do with that. Worked perfect before update, working badly after.

So with the SAME settings and apps installed, before update I got 96-97% in the morning, after update I wake up to 60-65%. It's simple logic to pinpoint the issue.

Since we only had one generic reply, I guess Samsung guys won't bother with you unless you're a S8 or Note 8 owner. So I found a fix on my own. Here it is:

 

1. Shut down your device

2. Press (and keep) volume up+home+power

3. When Samsung S6 logo appears, release the power button (but still keep pressed volume up+home)

4. A blue screen will appear - now you can release all buttons

5. Navigate to "wipe cache" using volume down

6. Activate wipe cache using power button

7. Confirm

8. Wait a few seconds and when the previous menu appears back, select "restart your device" - first option

 

This helped me. Back to 4% overnight. I hope it helps you too, random citizen.
